How Can We Help?

Experienced Criminal Defense Lawyer in Salem, Massachusetts

The shocking truth about today’s criminal justice system is that it is extremely easy to find yourself on the wrong end of a criminal complaint or indictment. Cases of mistaken identity, simple misunderstanding, unwittingly being in the wrong place at the wrong time or simply angering one of the many people all too happy to use the system to achieve their own personal goals happen all the time. The threat of prosecution does not begin upon being charged with a crime. At that point, in most cases, it is too late to prevent damage to your life that criminal prosecution can cause. The best way to truly protect yourself is to be proactive. Simply put, any hint that a criminal investigation is occurring, which may potentially involve you, should be treated as notice that potential trouble is brewing. Quick and deliberate action early on can often reduce the amount of criminal exposure in time, anxiety and expense down the road. It may even prevent the entire experience of being dragged into the system.
