Like several of its neighbors on the North Coast, Danvers is proud of its history as part of the setting for the Salem witch trials in 1692. The home of one such “witch,” Rebecca Nurse, is still standing and open to visitors. Danvers is also known in Massachusetts as the home of the Danvers State Hospital, a mental institution using historic architecture. It has been the scene of at least two horror movies and is rumored to be the inspiration for author H.P. Lovecraft’s Arkham Sanitarium and the Arkham Asylum in the Batman stories. Danvers residents do legal business at the Salem District Court in nearby Salem, which also serves Salem itself, Beverly, Middleton and Manchester by the Sea.

There Is No Substitute for an Experience Criminal Defense Lawyer

If you’re charged with a crime in Danvers or anywhere else in Massachusetts, you need experienced legal representation. In criminal cases, the deck is stacked against defendants, and it’s easy to make mistakes if you have no experience with the criminal justice system. Public defenders are available precisely because defendants need guidance, but they are often too overworked to give your case their full attention. Attorney Stephen Neyman has represented criminal defendants for more than 20 years and is a former prosecutor. That means our office understands how prosecutors build their cases and where to look in those cases for weaknesses. We can step in from the very beginning to protect your legal rights from police overreaching or mistakes, and start building a strong defense. Our goal is always to get you the best possible outcome from your criminal case.
