Civil and Criminal Charges

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.

The most famous cases that show the difference between civil and criminal cases were the two OJ Simpson trials involving the murder of Nicole Simpson and Ronald Goldman.

OJ Simpson won his criminal trial against the State of California and consequently wasn’t remanded to prison for the rest of his life.

OJ, however, didn’t prevail in the civil wrongful death suit brought against him by the relatives of his alleged victims. That loss didn’t send him to jail but required him to pay a $33.5 million penalty.

If you are facing a criminal charge in Massachusetts, you need an experienced Massachusetts criminal lawyer, like Elliot Savitz, with a proven track record by your side.

So, pick up the phone, right now, and call Elliot Savitz at (781) 613-2858 for a free consultation.

What can I do for you?
Speaking to me about your case can change your outlook dramatically. Within minutes, you will feel more at ease knowing what to expect in court, the likely outcome of your case, and alternative strategies. For instance, if you were charged with larceny or shoplifting, did you know you might have been searched illegally? If so, all the evidence may be excluded in court, resulting in a swift dismissal. Or, during your arrest, were you being questioned in violation of your constitutional rights? If so, any statements or admissions made during your interrogation could be excluded at trial, resulting in a not guilty. Both of these results can be produced through timely motions to suppress and are just two examples of how a competent criminal defense attorney can protect your rights in court.

As a knowledgeable Massachusetts criminal lawyer, I know what to look for in cases, like yours, and how to formulate a strategy to win your case and let you move on with your life. So pick up the phone right now and call me at (781) 974-3429 for your free consultation.
