In court proceedings, there are criminal charges and civil charges. Both charges can have very severe consequences. However, the main difference between the two is that a civil case generally results in financial penalties, whereas a criminal case can send you to jail.
If you are facing a shoplifting charge in Boston, Massachusetts, it is important to work with an experienced Boston criminal attorney to get the best possible result. Boston shoplifting charges are dependent on the value of the goods stolen and whether it is your first offense. I am an experienced and qualified Boston criminal attorney, who has represented many clients facing shoplifting charges in Boston. I have an excellent track record and will fight aggressively to defend you in court.

If you or a friend or a family member have been charged with an Assault & Battery, you are probably worried about the consequences and don’t know what to do. Unless you have been in court before, you are do not understand the judicial process and have no idea where to start. You are afraid of going to jail, losing your job and ruining your reputation in the neighborhood.

Whenever a small child doesn’t get its way, it may cry or throw a tantrum, because that is all it knows. Whenever society doesn’t like anything it often reacts with similar unconsciousness by declaring, “There ought to be a law.”
Don’t get me wrong. I believe in rule by law. However, I also know that laws don’t solve every problem or social ill. Those who believe they will have been overzealous of late, particularly when it comes to imposing law over the judicial system.

All right. You’re all under arrest!
—Sheriff Behan from Tombstone – 1993
Don’t be ridiculous, we can’t all be under arrest. Maybe. But in today’s environment of laws against everything, any person could be placed under arrest, at any time, or in any place. Do you think that is true? Many believe it is.
