Criminal Practice

Ms. Richards' criminal experience began as a prosecutor for the Suffolk County (Boston, Massachusetts) District Attorney's Office. As a result of her experience in the with the District Attorney's office, Ms. Richards cultivated an understanding that most people charged with criminal offenses need some sort of help through education or therapy, and fought hard to help offenders get into community programs such as drug courts and alcohol or domestic violence classes. Ms. Richards' belief in fixing the underlying problem guarantees that she will treat your case with the compassion and individual attention that you deserve to assure that your case is resolved in a manner that meets your goals.

If you are under investigation for or charged with a crime, hire an attorney as soon as possible. An attorney helps the court understand that you are serious about your case and about either showing your innocence or making the changes necessary to ensure that you get the help you need to learn from your mistakes and stay out of trouble. Having an attorney can help lower your bond, can convince the judge that your rights were violated during the investigation of the crime, can help you know what plea offers are fair and unfair, and can help you effectively present your case to a jury of your peers. Having an attorney can change your quality of life during your case drastically, and having a qualified attorney like Ms. Richards can help you obtain a much more favorable outcome. NEVER GO TO COURT ALONE. Your attorney can be your calm in the storm and barometer for a fair outcome.
