If you or your child has been accused of a crime or is the subject of an investigation at school, you need a law firm with experience not just in criminal law but also with expertise in the unique issues that come up when representing young people.. We have represented young people in all kinds of criminal, delinquency, and school-disciplinary cases, including sex-offense, drug, and homicide cases. We have also litigated some of the state’s most important and impactful cases involving the rights of adolescents, including Commonwealth v. Mattis, 493 Mass. 216 (2024), which held that life-without-parole sentences are unconstitutional for 18, 19, and 20 year olds and invalidated these sentences for hundreds of Massachusetts prisoners.
We have the experience, knowledge, and skills to guide young people and their families through school investigations, juvenile prosecutions, and criminal cases. We know how important these cases are and will work as hard as we can to protect their interests and their future.
