I and my law firm are proud to have the opportunity to represent the residents of Billerica in legal matters include personal injury, criminal defense (including OWI/DUI/DWI, traffic tickets, speeding, and reckless driving), and a variety of other matters. As a life-long Massachusetts resident, I take great pride in helping protect the rights and interests of clients in all aspects of representation.
I offer a free consultation, and would invite you to call me at (978) 851-5145 to learn how I can help and the options that may be available for your matter. I represent clients in personal injury and wrongful death matters on a contingent fee basis (no fee unless you recover damages). In criminal defense matters, I represent clients on a fixed-fee basis. I also accept credit cards for payment for criminal defense, and other non-injury matters.
The town of Billerica traces its Colonial roots back to the early 17th century, when a land grant was provided to Massachusetts Bay Governor John Winthrop and Lt. Governor Thomas Dudley in 1638 along the Concord River, which today runs in a North/South direction through the western half of town. The chosen town name “Billerica” was based upon Billericay, a town in Essex, England, which was the birthplace of some of the settlors. Subsequently, Billerica was formally incorporated in 1655, which happened to be the same day of the incorporation of the nearby towns of Chelmsford and Groton.
One of the most famous landmarks in Billerica is the Manning Manse, a mansion built in 1696 and now a national landmark. The home was constructed at the direction of William Manning, an author best known for the Key of Libberty, a commentary on Federalist Policies. The mansion subsequently fell into disrepair until it was restored in the late 1800’s by descendants of the original owner.
Billerica today is home to more than 40,000 residents, and comprised of a number of villages, including Billerica Center, North Billerica, South Billerica, East Billerica, West Billerica, Billerica Center, Pinehurst, Nutting Lake, River Pines, and Riverdale. In 2016, Billerica was named as one of “America’s 100 Safest Cities” by NeighborhoodScout.
In addition to a portion of the Concord River, Billerica is also home to the Shawsheen River, which at its closest point is about 1-2 miles from Nutting Lake, the largest lake in Billerica. The recreational opportunities available in Billerica led it to be named by Sports Illustrated as one of the nation’s top 50 towns for sports and recreation during their 50th anniversary issue.
The choice of legal counsel is an important decision. If you need representation, I am available for a free consultation for your matter.
Having a free consultation with a lawyer is one of the few areas in our society where a person can speak with a professional completely for free, with absolutely no cost or obligation, so I would urge you to take advantage of this opportunity. During this consultation, upon learning about your matter, I can advise how I can help, as well as how fees are determined. I believe that clients should never be hesitant to speak to their attorney about any aspect of representation, including questions about fees.
I know that many matters can arise unexpectedly. For matters other than personal injury or wrongful death, I offer the flexibility for clients to pay with a credit card, if desired. For personal injury and wrongful death matters, normally cases are accepted on a contingent fee basis, so I and my firm are only entitled to a fee if compensation from a settlement or jury verdict is received.
Also, for personal injury and wrongful death matters, in most cases I and my firm will advance costs required to further litigation efforts. Such costs can include court and deposition costs, expert fees, and a wide variety of other costs associated with case investigation and proof. I believe that if you have been injured or a loved one has died, you should not additionally have to worry about how you are going to pay these costs (which can be substantial) while you recover or while you grieve for the loss of your loved one. Upon a settlement or jury award, these costs are normally taken out of settlement or jury award.
