Our Boston criminal defense attorneys will diligently work from the time of your arrest, or even during an investigation, to protect your reputation and your future.

Client Representation: From Clerk's Hearings to Federal Crimes

Representation in Clerk's Hearings

Clerk’s hearings, or “show cause hearings,” handle minor misdemeanor offenses like larceny, drug possession, and traffic violations. Ignoring the summons or failing to hire an attorney could result in a criminal conviction. If summoned for a hearing in Massachusetts, our Boston criminal defense attorneys can guide you through the process and represent you.

Robust Defense Against Drug Possession and Distribution Charges

The penalties for drug possession or distribution depend on various factors like the quantity and type of drugs involved and your criminal record. Regardless of the drug charge you’re facing, our attorneys can give you a candid evaluation of your case and outline your legal options.

Expert Defense for Federal Crimes

Federal criminal charges are serious, often stemming from extensive investigations by federal agencies like the FBI or DEA. These cases require a Boston criminal defense attorney experienced in handling federal court cases. Attorney Jon A. Ciraulo has successfully managed several high-profile federal criminal cases, including federal jury trials.

Aggressive Defense for Larceny, Robbery, and Burglary

Convictions for any larceny or theft crime can significantly impact your future. Our attorneys offer a robust defense against any theft charges, regardless of their severity.

Traffic Violations Defense

Accumulation of points from traffic tickets or violations can lead to license suspension. Our defense team can help you contest traffic tickets, safeguarding your driving record.

Probation Violations Defense

An arrest for violating probation can land you back in jail and extend your sentence. We understand the impact this can have on your life and your future. Our attorneys will vigorously defend you from charges for violating probation at the initial hearing and at the final surrender hearing.

Swift Assistance with Appeals and Post-Conviction Relief

In addition to our robust defense services, we at the Coughlin Law Group also provide assistance with appeals and post-conviction remedies, aiming to lessen the impact of a conviction. The kind of relief you can seek will be specific to your situation, and swift action is necessary to avoid losing your right to appeal due to time constraints. When you choose our Boston criminal defense attorneys, we’ll clearly outline your options and aid in formulating an effective appeal strategy.
