During graduate school at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, Molly studied Restorative Justice which shaped her perspective that justice is rooted in community. She embraces this philosophy in her practice by working collaboratively with social workers, private investigators, and experts, as well as brainstorming with other attorneys. Building a network of dedicated and resourceful professionals is particularly important in the field of criminal defense because the accused stands alone against the resources of the government. From police officers to investigators, lab analysts and prosecutors, the interconnected government network can be overwhelming and intimidating to a lone defendant. To offset that imbalance, Molly has effectively built relationships within the defense bar as well as those with expertise in various aspects of the criminal justice system to support her clients holistically. This approach works in conjunction with Molly’s commitment to thorough legal research and strategic advocacy. She has co-authored legal articles with her brother, Luke, as well as filing amicus briefs in the Supreme Judicial Court.
Molly has appeared in trial courts all over Massachusetts as well as the Massachusetts Appeals Court and the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court. Before joining the firm, she was a solo practitioner focusing on criminal appeals. Now, being in a firm with bright, dedicated, and experienced criminal defense attorneys not only enriches the nature of the work but more importantly, improves the outcomes for her clients.
