Don't give up the ship

If you're looking at this page, chances are that you need a criminal defense attorney. Don't go it alone, and don't let short term money concerns affect your life long term. If you're here, chances are you can't afford not to hire an attorney.

Unless the Commonwealth proves, beyond a reasonable doubt, that you are guilty of a crime, you're presumed to be innocent. 

Don't give up the ship! Get a North Chatham criminal lawyer who will fight for you and your innocence.

 

Domestic Violence Charges

The legislature has just made the penalties for many domestic violence charges a lot worse. This past August, the legislature passed "An act relative to domestic violence." This means police and prosecutors are hyper-vigilant, looking for any possible violation in these new provisions of the law. We'll investigate all the ways you can avoid exposure to these harsher penalties.

An attorney to fight for you, a phone call away

My name is Harrison T. Barrow III, I’m a North Chatham criminal defense attorney, and I may be able to help you.  A guilty verdict could cost you money, time, and most importantly, your freedom.  But being charged is just the first step.  There are more hurdles for the Commonwealth:  The police may have violated the constitution when they stopped, searched, arrested, or interrogated you. A criminal defense attorney knows the law and can catch these issues; and you have a constitutional right to be represented by an attorney.

Operating Under the Influence Cases

In Massachusetts, we call it "Operating under the influence of intoxicating liquors" or OUI. For most people, you know it as DUI, DWI, or drunk driving. Whatever you call it, it can all spell the same thing: a big problem for you and your license. The sooner you start to fight these cases, the better it usually is. I will fight for you and your right to drive.

Representation from Arrest to Trial

A call tonight can save your license or your freedom now. If you or a loved one are arrested, your best line of defense is an attorney at the station with you. A call to 508-945-1400 (or toll-free at 844-945-1400) can have an attorney working to get you released within minutes.

Loved one charged with a crime?
 

 

Often, the best thing you can do to help your loved one is to encourage them to get proper legal representation as early as possible. I can help fight the case from the earliest stages of investigation, rather than waiting for the police to strengthen their case before charging.

 

Results through advocacy. 
Not just talk.

Very simply: I will fight for you at every level of your case. I prepare every case to go to trial. Some don't get to trial. But we will only accept a plea bargain if, after long and careful consultation with you, it appears to be in your best interests. You are the boss. At the end of the day, this is your life we are talking about.

As an old mentor told me, "all roads lead to closing argument." We will prepare and investigate your felony or misdemeanor case with constant attention to the stakes: your liberty, your life, and your happiness.
