Attorney Protecting Your Rights

If you have been charged with a crime in the Boston area, you should not plead guilty or say anything to the police without advice from a competent criminal defense lawyer.

The Law Offices of Judith A. Wayne is respected and recognized for its successful representation of Massachusetts criminal defendants. Led by Judith Wayne, a former assistant district attorney for Middlesex County, we understand how local police and prosecutors handle criminal cases. This knowledge often allows us to anticipate the arguments against our clients and prepare a thorough defense against those arguments.

We aggressively defend the rights and freedom of people accused of crimes in the Boston metro area and the North Shore.   We also represent clients as far west as Pittsfield and as far east as Cape Cod and the Islands. Call 781-691-9104 for a free consultation.

Dedicated Defense Against a Wide Range of Criminal Charges

We defend clients against a wide range of misdemeanor and felony charges throughout the Boston North Shore and Boston metro areas of Massachusetts, including:

  • Traffic tickets, including speeding and criminal traffic offenses such as OWI/DUI/DWI and driving with a suspended license
  • Domestic violence and related protection orders
  • Drug charges, including possession and trafficking charges involving meth, marijuana, crack, cocaine, heroin and illegal prescription drugs
  • Sex crimes such as sexual assault, child molestation and statutory rape
  • Assault and battery charges
  • Weapons charges
  • Theft and shoplifting
  • Arson and other property crimes
  • Robbery and burglary
  • Murder charges
  • Juvenile defense

Criminal law is rooted in constitutional law. We investigate thoroughly to determine whether, for example, the police violated the Fourth Amendment by conducting an improper search and seizure. We have won many criminal cases based on motions to suppress evidence that was gained through improper police actions.

Special Considerations for Juveniles

A substantial part of our criminal defense practice involves helping juveniles. Young people face a wide range of charges, commonly driving offenses. Even something as minor as a speeding ticket carries with it the possibility of a suspended license and a hefty fine. As a juvenile, with your whole life ahead of you, it is vitally important that you are aware of your rights and protect yourself — consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney before you agree to any plea or make any statements to police.
