Criminal Defense

At FitzGerald Law Company, our criminal defense lawyers understand that we all make mistakes and deserve to have someone that will provide the best legal defense to minimize the consequences of our mistakes and get a second chance, while treating us with the respect and dignity to which we are all entitled. We also know that individuals can also be charged with crimes they have not committed and it is only fair and just that we help them prove their innocence. Either way, our criminal defense attorneys understand that facing a criminal charge is an intimidating and overwhelming experience not only for the individual facing the charges but for their entire family. Our attorneys and entire legal team empathize with our clients, protect their confidentiality and are compassionate and respectful at all times. Through our consultative approach, we take the necessary time to understand your needs and objectives and we explain the different options and risks involved so that with your input we can craft the best strategy for your unique personal situation. Our focus is on you and winning your criminal defense case.

Our experienced Boston criminal lawyers can take your case all the way from arraignment to trial and appeal if necessary. In addition, because we also practice immigration law, we are aware of the implications that a criminal conviction can have on a person’s immigration status and we take this into careful consideration when negotiating the disposition of a criminal case. In certain cases, we are also able to re-open old convictions and vacate them so there is not adverse effect on a person’s immigration status or future immigration applications.
