Criminal Defense

Massachusetts prosecutes crimes aggressively with no exception. Several of the finest law schools in the country are in Massachusetts and thus it is no surprise that the prosecutors’ offices are filled with well-trained and experienced lawyers. However, KJC Law Firm criminal defense attorneys have a proven track record of winning cases that seem unwinnable and, when appropriate, helping our clients obtain the treatment or counseling they need to stay out of trouble.

Some of our clients are people who have made a bad decision, some of them have simply been caught up in a criminal investigation when they did nothing wrong, and some of our clients have been in trouble many times before. No matter what your circumstances are, our criminal defense attorneys can help you obtain the best possible outcome for yourself or your loved one. When you are accused of a crime in Massachusetts there will be a team of police, prosecutors, and advocates working to convict you. Shouldn’t you have a team working for you?
