Urbelis Law, LLC is a Boston-based criminal defense law firm representing individuals and businesses throughout the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. We also handle all federal criminal matters in the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts. Our firm is dedicated to not only understanding the facts and circumstances of your legal matter, but learning about you as a person. Our Boston criminal lawyers recognize that your case may have far-reaching collateral effects beyond what happens in court, and we customize our defense strategy based on your specific needs. If you want us to take it all the way to trial, we are more than willing to do so. In fact, our record demonstrates that we obtain “Not Guilty” verdicts on 90% of the cases we bring to trial. Of course, every case is unique. If the anxiety of your pending criminal matter is interfering with your ability to work or continue with your day to day life, or if your case would benefit from a resolution prior to trial, we will do everything in our power to reach the best possible outcome. We are here to listen to your situation and always provide a free initial consultation. Since many arrests and criminal matters arise during non-business hours, we are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The sooner you contact our office, the sooner we can fight for you.
From relatively minor misdemeanor offenses to major felonies, the Boston criminal attorneys at Urbelis Law have extensive experience handling every type of criminal matter in Massachusetts. In addition to our highly successful trial practice, we help clients navigate the ins and outs and potential collateral effects of their cases. We will handle an RMV hearing stemming from a misdemeanor criminal charge with the same vigor employed during a Sex Offender Registry Board matter as the result of a felony sexual assault charge. In addition to fully advising you of the strengths and weaknesses of taking your case to trial, you will always be apprised of your options short of trial (working out a deal), the consequences of your decisions, and the collateral effects associated with all potential outcomes. All of your bases are covered, and you will never be left in the dark, at Urbelis Law.
In addition to vigorously representing our clients throughout the various stages of their Massachusetts criminal cases, we provide that same dedication to help prevent criminal charges before they are officially filed. Whether you are concerned about being investigated for a crime, or you have been contacted by the police who are requesting an interview at the station, or perhaps you’ve received an application for a criminal complaint and don’t know where to turn. Don’t panic. We are here to help. It is important that you contact our office as soon as you have these concerns, because these situations are very time-sensitive and must be handled before they spiral out of control. Let us help prevent or minimize the damage. That’s what we do.
Given that many arrests occur during non-business hours, our Boston criminal lawyers are prepared to provide you with a free initial consultation 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If you were arrested over the weekend, we are prepared to meet with you right away to answer your questions and provide you with peace of mind before going in to your Monday morning arraignment in court. In most cases, you should be prepared to retain a defense attorney prior to the arraignment to ensure that all necessary paperwork is obtained from the government and your rights are protected from the onset of your criminal case. In more serious cases, or if you are already on probation for an open case, you should absolutely be represented by an attorney at the arraignment as the prosecution is likely to ask that you either be held on bail, have the bail revoked on your open case and have you detained for up to 90 days, or have you held as a “dangerous person ” for up to 120 days. In this situation, if you’re convinced that you can’t afford an attorney, you’re doing yourself a major injustice. The truth is, you can’t afford NOT to have an attorney. With no obligation to hire us after your initial consultation, you certainly having nothing to lose by calling!
