As a New Bedford criminal defense lawyer, Attorney Courtney K. Fogarty has spent over 10 years successfully navigating the legal system for her clients. She graduated from the Regent University School of Law in 2011 with an abundance of honors and real-world experience in court processes.
From the moment she started her education, Courtney hit the ground running with her passion for helping people protect their rights. She spent over a year working with the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation. This organization helps provide free legal aid to employees whose human or civil rights were violated.
Courtney also completed an externship with a Federal Judge in the Eastern District of US District Court, giving her unmatched insight into how criminal issues are brought before the court. She was tasked with researching and analyzing objections, plus attending sentencing and guilty plea hearings. For years, Courtney has leveraged this experience to protect her clients.
While in school, Courtney also founded the Law Students Military Network and filled the role of President. This organization is dedicated to serving members of the military, including veterans, by connecting them with law students interested in pursuing military or federal cases. Today, Courtney’s practice specializes in serving veterans and active-duty military.
After graduating, Courtney went on to work as a prosecutor in Virginia and Massachusetts. She started her career by working as a legislative aide at the State House of Boston. While there, she worked closely with legislators to solve issues and ensured proper case handling for constituents. This gave her a bird’s eye view into Massachusetts General Laws, and Courtney still uses this knowledge to help her clients today.
For 5 years, Courtney worked for the Office of the Plymouth County District Attorney. During this time, she not only worked as an Assistant District Attorney but also as the Supervisor of the Brockton District Court.

She prepared all witnesses for trial testimony, worked with local and state police, and spent over 1.5 years as a supervising attorney. She now has years of criminal defense expertise in the Superior and District Courts in Massachusetts.
In 2019, she was awarded the Spotlight Award by the Massachusetts District Attorney’s Association. Courtney is intimately familiar with absolutely every detail of court proceedings, and she’ll use this insider knowledge to your advantage as your attorney.
