Criminal Litigation

GNCM has achieved much success in a comprehensive range of criminal matters. We have represented individuals and corporations in a variety of contexts, including very sensitive and high profile matters. Our broad criminal defense practice in state and federal courts-at both trial and appellate levels-is grounded in our long-standing commitment to individual rights. GNCM defends those charged with any type of crime in Massachusetts, including minor misdemeanors and traffic offenses, OUI, motor vehicle homicide, drug possession and drug trafficking cases, violent felonies including armed robbery, domestic assault and battery, violation of 209A Restraining Order, rape, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, sexual assault, and murder. We often handle grand jury investigations and advise clients on internal investigations of alleged criminal activity. Our experience with complex litigation and the Massachusetts court system means we can expertly advise our clients facing simultaneous civil allegations and criminal investigations or prosecutions. GNCM also has extensive experience with ancillary issues such as restitution, accord and satisfaction, and the effect a conviction has on a person's driver's license. We are dedicated to an aggressive defense and work tirelessly to exonerate our clients. Examples of the types of cases the Criminal Litigation Practice handles are:

  • Clerk Magistrate Hearings (show cause hearings)
  • First-degree murder cases including self-defense claims
  • Motor vehicle homicide
  • All aspects of Operating Under the Influence (OUI)
  • Probation surrender matters
  • Drugs
  • Misdemeanor cases including motor vehicle violations
  • Major felonies including but not limited to assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, breaking and entering, and domestic assault and battery
  • Rape/Sexual assault
