Martha’s Vineyard Criminal Defense Lawyer

The criminal justice system and associated law enforcement officers are entrusted with the responsibility of keeping the public safe from harm and penalizing those who step afoul of the law. Unfortunately, there are times when a misunderstanding, false allegations, or other factors can lead an individual to be arrested and charged with a crime that he or she did not commit. Moreover, the circumstances surrounding an incident are often far more complicated than it may first appear, and the accused may face unreasonable prosecution.

If you have been arrested and are now awaiting prosecution for a criminal offense, it is important that you consult with a skilled and experienced lawyer about your case. You are guaranteed a competent and vigorous legal defense by no less than the Constitution, and when your freedom, finances, and reputation are on the line you cannot afford to waste a moment.
