What Happens After an Arrest in Massachusetts and How a Criminal Defense Attorney Can Help

After an arrest, some offenders will either attempt to represent themselves or contact the first general lawyer they see. This can be an unfortunate mistake. Attempting to navigate a criminal case can be complicated and emotional. If you’re unsure of laws and your lawyer doesn’t have the experience you need, you can find yourself in a compromising position and may even face unfair and unjust punishments. It’s highly recommended to work with an attorney that has a primary focus on Massachusetts laws and defense.

An experienced defense attorney will look at your case with a fresh set of eyes, determine if the arresting officers made errors, identify any issues and much more. Even though arrests happen every day, no two criminal charges are the same. At Fogarty Law we don't take a one-size-fits-all approach to criminal cases and clients. It’s imperative that your arrest be examined by a seasoned defense attorney specializing in MA laws.

The long-term effects of a conviction can impact your personal and professional life. To minimize these penalties or to see if your case can possibly be dropped or dismissed, it’s vital that you work with a seasoned criminal defense lawyer. Call Fogarty Law today to discuss your case.
