Billed as the "Birthplace of the American industrial revolution," Waltham is a city of 59,226 located in Middlesex County, Massachusetts about 10 miles northwest of downtown Boston. Sometimes called Watch City, Waltham was home to the Waltham Watch Company for a century before the factory, which was the first to make watches on an assembly line, closed in 1957. It was also home to the first production motorcycle built in the United States. Median household income was $54,010 in the 2000 census, with 3.6 percent of families living below the poverty line.

Boston Criminal Defense Lawyer Stephen Neyman represents clients accused of crimes in the Waltham area, including violent crimes, sex crimes, theft, burglary, robbery, property crimes, weapons violations, domestic violence and restraining order cases, drug crimes and drunk driving (DUI, OUI) charges. The towns of Weston and Watertown also feed the Waltham District Court.

Arrested for OUI in Waltham? Hire a Lawyer who Will try Your Case

Hundreds of OUI cases are prosecuted in the Waltham District Court annually. Routes 20, 128 and the Massachusetts Turnpike are major highways that cut through this jurisdiction. These roads are often patrolled heavily. Routine motor vehicle stops along these roads often morph into drunk driving prosecutions. A large percentage of Massachusetts OUI cases are very triable. Massachusetts laws make trying a drunk driving case attractive to criminal defense lawyers. The fact that a refusal of the breathalyzer is inadmissible at trial is often one clear reason you should consider going to trial on your case. A refusal to take field sobriety tests is equally inadmissible as evidence against you. There are several jury instructions that benefit the defendant in Massachusetts DUI cases.

Drug Offenses

Just read any local newspaper or blog and you will see that the Waltham District Court is loaded with a variety of drug cases stemming from simple possession of marijuana to trafficking cocaine or heroin. Drug dealing in this city is rampant and taken very seriously by law enforcement in this jurisdiction. But that does not mean that the district attorney sees everyone who is accused of a drug crime as needing to go to jail. Hiring a lawyer who has successfully defended drug crimes in Waltham is the best decision you will ever make. You need someone working for you who can either try and win your case or ensure a resolution of your case that will keep you out of jail and perhaps even leave you without a criminal record. We do this well.

You Will Need a Lawyer for a Waltham Probation Violation Hearing

Attorney Neyman also handles probation violation cases through the Waltham District Court Probation Department. Having an experienced attorney by your side at a probation hearing can be critical to protecting your rights.
