New Domestic Violence Law presents sweeping and dramatic changes

The new Domestic Violence law has dramatically changed numerous aspects of Massachusetts criminal law and procedure. To effectively advocate for your client, a lawyer must have an absolute command of the ins and outs of the applicable statutes. An individual charged with domestic violence related offenses now will face more serious and immediate consequences based just on the fact that he has been charged. Further penalties and consequences pose additional consequences should the case ultimately end in a conviction. If you are facing a domestic violence related offense, I would strongly urge you to contact my office immediately.
