Wilmington Criminal Defense


Being charged with a crime – even as minor as a speeding ticket – is never enjoyable.  When significant fines, the loss of driving privileges, and even incarceration are on the line, you need an experienced criminal defense lawyer willing to provide tenacious representation in seeking the best outcome possible.  Someone who is willing to go against the prosecution, challenge their case, and work tirelessly in seeking to have charges dismissed and evidence excluded whenever possible.

I represent Wilmington residents and those in the surrounding communities in cases involving charges ranging from speeding and traffic tickets to violent felonies, including sex crimes, robbery, and assault.  When your reputation and even your personal freedom are at stake, you need and deserve a Wilmington criminal defense lawyer who is driven in seeking the best outcome possible for you and your matter.

Fixed Fee Representation

Because I and my firm typically accept criminal cases on a fixed-fee basis, it does not cost any more to retain my services at the outset of a case.  Moreover, the earlier that I am retained, the better that I can begin protecting your rights.

If you or a family member is in need of an experienced Wilmington criminal defense lawyer, I invite you to call me to learn how I can help.  In the interim, to learn more about some of the areas in which I provide criminal representation, please see the following pages:

Challenging the Prosecution in Wilmington Criminal Defense Matters

Prosecutors normally want to convict.  They do, however, have ethical obligations to dismiss charges when the evidence or the law do not support making (or continuing to assert) a criminal charge.

As a criminal defense lawyer, my role is to challenge the prosecution at every point in a case.  This includes making motions to dismiss charges when evidence was illegally obtained (such as a wrongful traffic stop), or if the evidence that the prosecution has does not support a conviction beyond a reasonable doubt.

I accept cases with the intention of winning, and will do everything I can within the law and the legal ethics boundaries to do so.

In some instances, it may be desirable to seek to plea deal.  In these circumstances, I provide advice as to the merits of seeking a plea deal so that a client can make the best decision for themselves as to whether to seek a plea deal or to go to trial.  If a plea deal is being considered, my role will be to seek the best arrangement possible for a client’s consideration, and a client can then choose whether to accept such deal.

Tenacious and Zealous Advocacy For Those Facing OUI and Drunk Driving Charges.

Operating Under the Influence (OUI) charges are serious and can lead to severe consequences in Massachusetts, including license suspension, hefty fines, and even jail time. As an experienced Wilmington drunk driving lawyer, I am committed to providing comprehensive representation to clients facing such charges, and I understand the complexities involved in navigating the legal system. My priority is to ensure my clients receive the highest quality of representation and obtain the most favorable outcomes possible.

The job of a Wilmington OUI lawyer includes thoroughly examining all aspects of the charges and circumstances surrounding the arrest, such as evaluating the legality of the traffic stop, the administration of field sobriety tests, the calibration and accuracy of breathalyzer machines, and the collection and preservation of evidence. By meticulously analyzing every detail, I identify any procedural errors, constitutional violations, or weaknesses in the prosecution’s case, which can be used to the client’s advantage.

Furthermore, I recognize that each client’s situation is unique, and I tailor my defense strategies accordingly. This may involve negotiating with the prosecution for a plea bargain or reduced charges, or taking the case to trial and aggressively defending my client in court. My goal is to minimize the impact of an OUI charge on my client’s life, which may include obtaining alternative sentencing options, such as probation, counseling, or community service, rather than incarceration.

As an OUI defense attorney, I also strive to keep my clients informed and involved throughout the legal process. I understand that facing an OUI charge can be an incredibly stressful experience, and my clients deserve to have a knowledgeable and compassionate advocate on their side. I am dedicated to providing clear communication, answering questions, and addressing concerns to ensure my clients feel supported and confident in their defense.
