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

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

OUI Defense
