Defending You Is Our Job
If you have been charged with a crime, the state won't
look out for your best interests. Our lawyers will.
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.
If charged with drunk driving, you need an aggressive defense to avoid or mitigate punishment such as loss of driving privileges. Drunk driving charges are defensible.
