Criminal Defense

Few things in life are more unsettling and intimidating than being involved in the criminal justice system. Being convicted of a crime, whether a misdemeanor or a felony, can have a significant impact on your future. A minor offense such as shoplifting can make it difficult to get into college or get a job; a felony conviction can result in a significant state prison sentence and the loss of certain privileges and Constitutional rights. If a student or juvenile is convicted, their criminal record can result in a school expulsion and diminish their future options.

If faced with such a situation, you need immediate, competent, and aggressive representation to protect your rights. The lawyers at KCL have vast criminal jury trial experience in Massachusetts District and Superior Courts and have successfully defended individuals accused of crimes. We provide each client with a vigorous defense and have experience in a range of criminal matters – from OUI and gun possession to drug and narcotics charges. Our criminal defense team includes a former Massachusetts state prosecutor who handled more than 30 jury trials, as well as attorneys with considerable bench and jury trial experience. We understand how prosecutors think and the evidence they need to obtain a conviction. If you are facing criminal charges, you need an attorney with courtroom experience who will protect your rights and prepare a strong defense. We will represent your interests throughout the criminal process and pursue the best possible result on your behalf. You can rely on us to effectively try cases that can reasonably go to trial and negotiate the most advantageous disposition for cases where a trial is not in your best interests.
