Criminal Defense

Aggressively Helping You Fight a Charge

Whether you have been charged with a felony or misdemeanor related to domestic assault, drunk driving or narcotics possession, you may be feeling fear, confusion and helplessness. Such emotions may prevent you from making rational decisions about important matters that can affect you for years to come.

At Marcotte Law Firm, we help to alleviate the stress and emotions that are associated with the criminal legal process by educating clients, providing sound advice and a solid defense of clients’ rights. We keep you involved in every aspect of your case. We understand the value you bring to the case. You were actually there. We have an open line of communication because that’s the best way to win your case.

A Tough Defensive Stance for Nearly Any Criminal Offense

Mistakes happen, and a misguided decision can lead to criminal allegations. No matter what law enforcement charged you with, we can help. Our resourceful lawyers work with clients charged with DUI and OUI as well as other motor vehicle offenses such as reckless or negligent driving. Bringing dignity and superior legal care in an often-stigmatized area, we analyze every aspect of the traffic stop, the arrest, the booking process and all the evidence to ferret out potential weaknesses that will interrupt the prosecution’s case.

If you have been charged with assault and battery, regardless of the situation in which it happened, you may find yourself unsure of your options. Our criminal defense attorneys can help give you direction aimed at obtaining the best possible result in your case. Our assistance is grounded in a firm belief that every individual has a right to competent representation and a fair trial. More importantly, there usually is another side to the alleged victim’s version of events.

In cases related to a drug offense, such as those involving cultivation, possession or distribution, our attorneys offer their comprehensive, up-to-date knowledge of state substantive drug law. We also know the law on search and seizure, which often comes into play with police stops leading to drug arrests. We can root out situations where the police know they don’t have a reason to stop or search you, but do it anyway.

Our firm is respected throughout Massachusetts and New Hampshire for our ability to obtain the best possible results for our clients. We are also experienced in finding an efficient settlement of your claim. If we think that there is a way to resolve your case without risking a full trial, we will present the option to you. We don’t push cases along so that we can bill you. We want you to get the best result possible for a reasonable price.

We also defend clients who have been charged with criminal sexual assault and statutory rape, providing practical answers and setting realistic expectations for our clients.
