Wellesley is a college town that is home to two different institutions: Wellesley College and Babson College. Perhaps for this reason, its population of 27,412 is relatively economically and racially diverse. Not surprisingly for a town that hosts a women-only college, Wellesley is also heavily female, with about 7% more women in residence than the national average. Like many of its neighbors, it was originally part of Dedham, and was later a section of Needham called West Needham before citizens voted to form their own town in 1880. It is the past and present home of many notables, including multiple Red Sox and Celtics players as well as authors Vladimir Nabokov and Sylvia Plath and ACLU founder Robert Nash Baldwin. Wellesley residents do their legal business at the Dedham District Court.
The Law Office of Stephen Neyman has represented citizens of Wellesley in many different criminal cases, including cases of marijuana possession, other drug crimes, burglary and theft, driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, domestic violence and restraining orders, violent crimes and more. We routinely visit the Dedham District Court and the higher court right next door, the Norfolk Superior Court. Typically, misdemeanors can be heard at the district court level, but that court will hear only very basic matters connected to more serious or violent crimes. Attorney Stephen Neyman worked for many years in both courts and knows the character of the court itself as well as that of likely jurors. Our office puts that experience to work in every case we handle for Wellesley residents.
If you’ve been accused of a crime, please don’t hesitate before you call our office. Time is vital in criminal cases. If you wait too long to get legal representation, you might miss important opportunities to build your case or protect your civil rights. Time can wash away evidence that could be valuable to your case. You can also miss deadlines to take actions early in the case that make a big difference later. And when defendants talk to law enforcement without the advice of an experienced attorney, some of them can make mistakes or allow violations of their rights. To prevent all of this and build the best possible case, defense lawyer Stephen Neyman prefers to join the case as early as possible. If we can get involved quickly enough, we can sometimes negotiate with prosecutors to prevent charges from being filed at all, or for lesser, more fair charges.
Our downtown Boston law office at 50 Congress Street is an easy drive for Wellesley residents or a one-train trip on the Framingham/Worcester line of the MBTA. To get there by car, take the Mass Pike, using Interstate 95 if it’s convenient. When the turnpike reaches downtown, take the left exit for Interstate 93, then take exit 24A for South Station. Keep left at the fork and merge onto Atlantic Avenue, turn left at Pearl Street, then go straight through Post Office Square. From there, it’s a right turn onto Congress Street. Using the train, you can take the Framingham/Worcester line from Wellesley Square directly to South Station, then walk about 10 minutes to our office. If you’d like to speak with us before leaving Wellesley, you can call us anytime at (617) 263-6800 or send us a message through the Internet to request a free phone consultation.
