Defending Your Rights In Massachusetts

When a person is charged with a crime, they are often most concerned about their immediate future. However, that is only half the story. The other half is the long-term effect a conviction can have on your life. Employers, lenders, landlords and others will treat you differently if you have a criminal record.

At Cataldo Law Offices, L.L.C., our lawyers are here to look out for your best interests in the short and long term. What sets us apart from many other criminal defense law firms is that we take the job of informing and preparing you for what’s ahead as seriously as we do the task of preparing your defense and aggressively representing you in court. From our office in Franklin, or Wellesley location, we represent clients throughout the Boston metro area and all of Massachusetts.

Our Practice Areas

Homicide and Violent Crime

Homicides and violent crimes require aggressive and skilled advocacy. We have the passion, skill and knowledge to defend and help exonerate you.

OUI Defense

If charged with drunk driving, you need an aggressive defense to avoid or mitigate punishment such as loss of driving privileges. Contesting these charges is a viable option in most instances that should be strongly considered.

Drug Charges

Drug charges may result from an illegal search and seizure. Our lawyers can defend your constitutional rights. In some instances, treatment is also an option to mitigate punishment. Either way, we can help.

Juvenile Charges

When a minor is charged with a crime as a delinquent or youthful offender, our job is to eliminate or minimize the impact on your child’s future. Aggressive and compassionate representation will help well after the juvenile becomes an adult.

Driver’s License Suspensions

We can help you with the reinstatement of your license in Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV) and Board of Appeal hearings.

Sex Crimes

In spite of the presumption of “innocent until proven guilty,” the reality of being charged with a sex crime is that in the eyes of most, accusations are the same thing as fact. You need aggressive representation.

Looking Out For Your Best Interests Now And In The Future

We have represented thousands of people charged with crimes in Massachusetts, ranging from MURDER to DRIVER’S LICENSE SUSPENSION. Our cases have been featured on CNN, 20/20, Dateline NBC and on HBO.
