Criminal Defense Lawyers

Criminal Defense Attorneys:

Our firm know the Massachusetts criminal justice system can be an impersonal, forbidding “machine”, where prosecutors may push for maximum sentences, and some judges may offer little sympathy.

Our criminal defense attorneys understand this process. The Greater Boston criminal defense lawyers at The Oriel Law Group seek to make the law work for our clients and to protect them from the consequences of a criminal conviction.

Our practice began over 35 years ago. We offer the personal service and communication so our clients always know they are our number-one priority.

If you are facing criminal allegations, we are prepared to stand up for your rights.

A criminal charge puts your reputation, lifestyle and very freedom at risk. If you have been arrested for a felony or misdemeanor offense in Massachusetts, you may face steep fines, probation and even jail or prison time. You may wind up isolated from your family and friends. Additionally, a conviction can cost you your job and create difficulties in securing another one.

Our attorneys understand the stakes you are facing and are here to help defend you against whatever charges you are facing. Our attorneys have experience handling criminal cases, ranging from:

Drunk Driving Charges

If you have been charged with drunk driving in or refused to take a blood test when requested, you may be facing harsh penalties including fines, jail, license suspension, and vehicle forfeiture. Because of this, it is important that you have an experienced DUI defense lawyer to aggressively defend your rights and protect your future. Our DUI attorneys will counsel and represent you from the time of your arrest, through your arraignment, and at all subsequent court appearances and filings.

Domestic Violence

If you are arrested for domestic violence, you may go to jail. Furthermore, you may be separated from your family and prohibited from living in your own home. If you are not a citizen, you face exclusion (deportation) as a result of this charge, even if it is dismissed on conditions. Massachusetts law provides first-time domestic violence offenders the opportunity to be placed on probation and enter treatment and education programs. Upon successful completion of these programs, charges can be dismissed. Our attorneys will carefully examine all of the details of your case to help you determine a course of action that best suits your needs.

Traffic Violations

If you have received a citation for any type of moving violation, you have the same right to due process and a fair day in court that individuals charged with much more serious offenses have. Our attorneys will investigate these charges, examine the procedures surrounding the evidence, and see to it that your rights are protected and that you are treated fairly. In some cases, we may be able to challenge the case against you and get the charges against you reduced or dismissed. We represent clients in all moving violation matters including speeding tickets, work zone speeding, hit and run matters, reckless driving, etc.
