Plymouth

Nowhere else in America has a greater claim to our nation's founding and the principals it stand for than Plymouth, Massachusetts.

Plymouth, after all, is the site of the first colony established by the pilgrim passengers of the Mayflower. Founded in 1620, Plymouth is the oldest municipality in New England and the oldest continually inhabited English settlement in the country.

Today, Plymouth is the largest municipality in the State of Massachusetts by land area and a growing community with a 2009 population of 58,681, up from 51,701 at the time of the 2000 census. Located about 40 miles south of Boston in Massachusetts' South Shore area, the Plymouth area continues to be a major tourist attraction. Rapid growth and development first came to the Plymouth area in the 1970s with improved highways, railways and bus routes to Boston. A bedroom community known for its family-friendly atmosphere, one-third of Plymouth households have children. Median family income is $63,266, while about 5 percent of households exist below the poverty line.

Law Firm Defending People Accused of Committing Crimes in Plymouth, Massachusetts

When someone is charged with a crime they need a lawyer who specializes in criminal defense law. Hiring a lawyer with a “general practice” is not the most prudent way to proceed if you have to defend a criminal case. Think about this. When you have a particular medical problem you go to a specialist. Your family practice doctor will not cross disciplines and treat problems beyond their area of expertise. Similarly, you should not hire a real estate conveyancing lawyer or a personal injury lawyer to represent you on a criminal matter. What Crimes Do Your Office Defend?

I Have a Criminal Case in the Plymouth District Court. Will I Go to Jail?

This is a question that I get all the time, particularly with clients who have never been in trouble with the law. The answer depends on several factors, way too many to list on this page. I can tell you however that in general judges in the district courts do not want to sent people to jail. The district courts judges do not have the authority to send people to state prison, only county jail. The large majority of times, cases in the district court are resolved without jail time provided you are well represented. For more specific answers to this question we encourage you to call our office.
