Felonies in Massachusetts

Aggressive Boston Criminal Defense Lawyer

Being charged with any type of criminal offense can be extremely emotional for a person and his or her family. When a person is accused of committing a felonious crime, the questions and concerns that result could keep a person awake at night. In some cases, people become so afraid of their legal matters that they act in haste and plead guilty to a charge just to make the legal issue go away. If these people would have taken the time to enlist the service of a skilled criminal defense law firm, they could have had a lawyer present a strong defense that could help reduce or dismiss the charges brought against them.

If you have been arrested for a serious crime, we know how frightening this time must be for you. If you are at all interested in protecting your rights, you will need to seek legal representation from a qualified Boston criminal defense attorney. At The Criminal Defense Group, we have more than 65 years of combined legal experience. In those years of practice, we have dedicated our practice to providing aggressive representation on behalf of every client who comes through our doors. Taking such a focused approach allows us to defend our clients to the fullest extent of the law -- and our adversaries know it.

What is a felony offense?

The state of Massachusetts categorizes crimes into felonies and misdemeanors. Felonies are crimes that can be punished according to Massachusetts sentencing guidelines that include incarceration in state prison. People convicted of felonies at the federal level may even be at risk of being senteced to death. Felony offenses will be heard in both district and superior courts, and depending on the type of felony committed, the statute that governs the offense will dictate the type of penalty a convicted offender will face. Types of felony crimes include the following:

Individuals facing felony charges may feel a great deal of pressure from prosecutors, investigators, and law enforcement agencies. In an attempt to get what they want, these opposing parties will try to obtain any evidence against you, discredit your integrity, or vilify your reputation. At The Criminal Defense Group, we know what is at stake in a felony case. Not only will you be facing the legal challenges that are associated with a criminal defense matter but you may also experience the negative consequences of social stigma associated with the criminal charges filed against you. That is why our criminal defense team is dedicated to protecting you to the fullest extent of the law!

Defending You from Maximum Felony Penalties

Massachusetts law has a strict statute of limitations that puts a limit on the amount of time that can pass before a criminal prosecution case can begin after an alleged crime is committed. If the prosecution tries to file a charge after the statute of limitations expires, the charge will be dismissed in court.

Felony charges can negatively impact you for the rest of your life. This should go without saying, but when you are facing felony charges, you will need to seek legal representation from an experienced Boston criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible. At The Criminal Defense Group, you can rely on our knowledge and experience with criminal laws and our ability to exhaust every possible avenue to fight the charges brought against you. Your freedom and your future deserve it!
