Former Prosecutors Now Fighting for You
At the Massachusetts Criminal Defense Group, our lawyers know that each of the district attorneys throughout the Commonwealth has zero tolerance for crime and aggressively pursues harsh convictions when it comes to criminal and drunk driving laws (known as operating under the influence — OUI — or driving under the influence — DUI). Moreover, many of us are former prosecutors and know firsthand how police departments and district attorneys build their cases — we were once in their shoes. Now we use this insider knowledge to our clients' advantage when fighting criminal or DUI charges.

Our Statewide Strategy
Our Founder and Lead Attorney, Irwin M. Pollack, has developed a statewide strategy that gives each of the firm's lawyers an in-depth understanding of the operations of the courts throughout the Commonwealth. Each lawyer is assigned to one of our 13 offices and focuses on handling cases in that region. This means that he or she will very likely know the prosecutor who will handle your case, the judge who will preside and the procedures that will be used as your case moves forward. All of these things are critical to the outcome of your legal matter.
An Independent Investigation of Every Case
Every client gets a full and complete investigation into his or her case. We leave no stone unturned in creating our defense strategy. We file bail motions, motions to suppress evidence, motions to disclose the police officer's background and discovery motions. We gather evidence, contact witnesses and serve subpoenas to help get charges dropped or severely reduced.
Our Defense Attorneys: Known Throughout the State
Not only do our lawyers know the courts, but the courts know us. We appear in district and superior courts throughout the state every day. Our attorneys are familiar figures with track records and are known as tireless fighters for clients facing criminal or DUI charges. We have earned the respect of local judges, opposing attorneys, expert witnesses, court personnel and law enforcement agencies. These relationships give us a competitive advantage in the courtroom.
We Wrote the Book on Massachusetts Criminal Defense
Our trial notebooks reflect the best practices used by each lawyer in each court in Massachusetts. They allow us to identify and share the best cross-examination and defense strategies in different courts and different types of cases. Every time one of our lawyers appears in court, we update the notebook. And when we're not in court, we study the books and develop new winning strategies.
