Our son, a student at a Fitchburg MA college, was recently arrested.

Additional Information:

Our son, a freshman at a Fitchburg MA college, was recently arrested while carrying a small amount of cocaine. My wife and I are wondering if we should spend our money (which we can afford) to hire an attorney to defend him in this charge.  Is it going to make any difference or will he end up with the same type of plea bargain? Thanks.


At the very least you should consult with an experienced attorney to discuss your sons rights and available options.  We charge a very reasonable consultation fee to review your case, including analyzing the complaint, any police reports, witness statements and all available evidence in the case.  Upon review of all evidence we will advise you on your sons rights and all available remedies, including what you can expect to happen with the case.

Most of the time I am able to obtain the most beneficial type of results for my clients including Not Guilty verdicts after trial and Dismissal of charges.  If you decide to hire our firm after consultation generally you will get a better result due to our superior reputation, our knowledge, our skills and our experience.  A young person in college has a lot to lose in this day and age and should absolutely consult with and usually hire an experienced attorney to preserve and protect their reputation and criminal record.
