With an estimated population of 34,111, Chelmsford is part of both the Lowell area and Greater Boston. In fact, Chelmsford was originally incorporated in 1655, and the town of East Chelmsford eventually broke off to form Lowell. For much of its history, Chelmsford’s economy centered around farming, lumber and rock quarries, but it was later transformed by the Industrial Revolution. One notable result is that Chelmsford has its own soft drink -- Chelmsford Ginger Ale, now made in neighboring Tewksbury. Chelmsford has a low crime rate, but Chelmsford and many of its neighbors use the Lowell District Court when they have business with the state legal system. That court is at 41 Hurd Street in Lowell.
With more than 20 years of experience in criminal defense, attorney Stephen Neyman has handled hundreds of cases in Lowell’s district court, as well as the higher Superior Court there. These are busy courts handling many different kinds of cases involving people from all walks of life. The Law Office of Stephen Neyman has defended clients against all types of criminal charges in Lowell, from too many traffic tickets to serious, violent crimes to drug possession and drunk driving. Many of these cases will ultimately move to higher courts, but that doesn’t mean an attorney can’t do you a lot of good in the district court. When we can get involved early enough, we can start on your defense right away by making motions and attending hearings that can set the ground rules for a later trial.
When you’re charged with a crime, there’s often no time to spare. Evidence disappears or gets contaminated as time passes, and decisions in the justice system can become final if you never assert your right to challenge them. That’s why we prefer to get involved in cases as early as possible. If we can intervene before charges are filed, we can sometimes convince prosecutors not to file them at all, or to file less serious charges. Later on, we can negotiate with prosecutors before the trial for a fair resolution. If your case goes to trial, we can use all of this experience and our long involvement in the case to build the best possible defense. Our goal is always to get the best outcome we can to our clients’ cases, minimizing or eliminating the effect on the client’s freedom, career and family.
