Worcester Criminal Defense Attorneys Protect Clients’ Rights
Seasoned lawyers advocate in Massachusetts and federal courts
When you’re facing criminal charges, you need a strong, experienced lawyer to ensure that your fundamental rights are being honored. At Glickman, Sugarman, Kneeland & Gribouski in Worcester, our firm has fought for fairness in criminal matters for more than a half century. Our attorneys’ extensive criminal defense experience offers clients an advantage because we can spot legal flaws whether they occurred during a police stop, during interrogation or in the courtroom. We take a comprehensive approach as your advocates and work for the best possible outcome whether that is a dismissal, acquittal or favorable plea bargain.
Dedicated defense for felony accusations
For more than 50 years, people have trusted our firm to provide diligent defense for serious felony charges including these:
- Sex crimes — Cases involving sexual assault charges often turn on small details relating to issues such as consent. We have the experience inside and outside the courtroom to unearth the key evidence.
- Homicide — For a murder or manslaughter charge, our firm provides the strongest possible defense by challenging questionable witnesses and evidence.
- Burglary and theft crimes — Breaking and entering with a felonious intent can bring a sentence of up to 20 years in prison. We can explain what defenses exist to mitigate or dismiss the charges.
We know that criminal accusations are also personal crises that deeply affect you and your family. Our lawyers take extra care to safeguard your right to a fair trial and to be treated with respect.
Accomplished law firm represents clients in misdemeanor cases
Though they don’t carry the same types of sentences as felonies, misdemeanors in Massachusetts can lead to fines, job loss, suspension of driving privileges and even jail time. State law allows for incarceration of more than two years for the most serious misdemeanor convictions. If you have been charged with misdemeanor assault and battery, drunk driving, theft, or another count, our attorneys will assert your rights and challenge the case against you. When appropriate, we will argue for a reduction in charges or an alternative to jail time, such as probation or community service.
Skilled counselors oppose OUI prosecutions
Our lawyers provide skillful advocacy to drivers accused of operating under the influence. Even if your blood alcohol content tests above the legal limit of .08 percent, we will conduct a full investigation to see whether the evidence of drunk driving was tainted or obtained improperly.
Knowledgeable legal advice to confront drug crime allegations
Charges for drug-related crimes depend on the substance and amount involved. A slight distinction can result in the difference between a minor possession charge and a serious distribution count. Our lawyers press for fair treatment in charging and throughout the trial or plea-bargain process.
Diligent legal support to counter assault charges
Depending on the severity and circumstances of the incident, assault can be charged in Massachusetts as a felony (aggravated assault) or as a misdemeanor (simple assault). People charged with these crimes sometimes have been unfairly targeted because law enforcement made an arrest without a complete understanding of the situation. We will bring all of the relevant information to the court’s attention and present evidence of self-defense as well as other important details.
