Like many Massachusetts cities, Everett was originally settled in the 1600s, but was not incorporated for nearly 270 years. It was originally part of Charlestown and later, of Malden. From its position just across the Mystic River, Everett is a convenient commuter city for people who work in Boston. Modern Everett is a working-class city whose residents include immigrants from many nations. Notable residents of Everett include television actress Ellen Pompeo and NESN personality Ramiro Torres. Everett residents who have legal business with the state use the Malden District Court in nearby Malden, which also serves Malden itself, Melrose and Wakefield.

The Law Office of Stephen Neyman has had good results defending people from Everett from a variety of different criminal charges. We have represented clients accused of drunk driving/OUI, assault and battery, domestic violence, all types of drug crimes, sex crimes and many others. Attorney Stephen Neyman has more than 20 years of experience in criminal defense law, and in fact is a former prosecutor. That means he provides a substantial amount of experience in criminal defense, but also has insights into how prosecutors build cases and how to defend those cases. He puts that experience and knowledge to work for clients, helping them avoid a criminal conviction and all of the serious results it could have.

At the Law Office of Stephen Neyman, we understand how stressful and upsetting a criminal charge can be. In addition to the emotional upheaval it can cause, a conviction can also threaten your freedom, your financial security and your loved ones. With this much at stake, it’s important to take quick action, so you can start protecting your rights and building your defense as soon as possible. Our office can usually help at any point during a case, but if we can get involved early, we can make a big difference for our clients. If we join a case before charges are filed, we can negotiate with prosecutors for no charges at all or reduced charges. After those charges are filed, we prefer to start negotiations early, which allows us to negotiate for dropped or changed charges that may carry fewer penalties. And of course, the earlier we start, the better our chance of building you a powerful and effective defense.

If you’re an Everett resident charged with any kind of crime, you should contact the Law Office of Stephen Neyman right away to learn more about your rights and your legal options. From home, you’re welcome to send us an email or call 617-263-6800. Or, you’re welcome to visit our downtown Boston office. To get there from Everett by car, you can follow Route 99 south until it becomes New Rutherford Street and then Washington Street. After crossing the Charlestown Bridge, follow Washington until you can turn right at Market Street. Soon, you’ll be able to turn left onto Merrimack Street, which turns into Congress Street. Our office is on the left. Using public transit, you can take Bus 104 or 109 across the river to Sullivan Station, then take the Orange Line to the State Street station, just a short walk from the office.
