Finding yourself under a criminal investigation or being arrested for a crime in the state of Massachusetts is a frightening, confusing, and stressful experience. You may know little about the state or federal criminal laws, the local criminal court system, or where to turn for trusted help. Your future is likely at stake due to the prospect of jail or prison time, hefty fines, lengthy probation periods, and other court orders related to the specifics of your charges.

Types of Cases Our Criminal Defense Attorney Handles

No matter what criminal case accusations you face, Mr. Beaubien will work tirelessly to build a case aimed at securing the best possible result. Our staff understands every area of criminal case law.

Examples of criminal charges we defend include:

  • Assault and battery. If you threaten or attempt to hurt others with physical violence, you may be convicted of assault. If you make actual physical contact with the alleged victim, causing any type of injury, it is considered battery. More often than not, these two crimes go hand in hand. Even though an assault charge can be the result of something as simple as a bar fight, you may end up with a criminal record because of it. A criminal defense attorney can advocate for you in court and may get the charges dropped or reduced.
  • Cyber Harassment. Cyberbullying is a surprisingly common charge in the state of Rhode Island. Cyber harassment is defined as the transmission of electronic communication to harass someone. The laws about cyberbullying are new and open to interpretation. A well-trained attorney may be able to use the ambiguity of the law to help your defense.
  • Drug crimes. The severity of your drug possession charge significantly influences the sentencing upon a conviction for drug-related offenses. Just like in any criminal case, your prior offenses play a crucial role in determining the sentence you'll face. Our law firm will research every law and every angle about your case that can be used in building your defense.
  • Drunk driving defense lawyer. If you have been charged with a DUI, you are undoubtedly concerned with fees, license suspension, and even potential jail time. We will research every aspect of your case to fight back against inaccurate test results, improper police procedures, and more that can negate your charges and keep you on the road. Let our DUI defense lawyer help you build a solid DUI defense to fight your case.
  • Firearm violations. Both state and local laws regulate gun control, from the number of weapons you may have to the kinds of weapons you may possess. These laws change constantly, making it easy to violate them. Our team understands how confusing gun laws can be and will fight for your firearm charges to be dropped or reduced.
  • Larceny and embezzlement. Laws regarding larceny and embezzlement can be complex and lead to convictions that have the stigma of dishonesty. Mr. Beaubien understands the laws pertaining to all kinds of theft and what is necessary to prove or disprove these charges in both Rhode Island and Massachusetts.
  • Probation violations. Probation involves compliance with all of the terms and conditions issued by the court. Missing appointments with your probation officer or other lapses can lead to penalties and jail. Attorney Beaubien is adept at negotiating with the courts for leniency on behalf of clients accused of any violation.
  • Sex offenses. Crimes such as child molestation and child pornography are considered so heinous that a person accused of these crimes is often convicted in the court of public opinion long before they go to trial. If you are convicted of a sex crime, you not only face jail time, fines and probation, you may end up paying for the conviction forever. You may have to register as a sex offender and be denied employment and housing because of your conviction. Mr. Beaubien will research your case and present a compelling argument in your defense.
  • Appeals. You can appeal a judge or jury's conviction in many circumstances. If a witness lied on the stand, if evidence that should not have been admissible was used in the trial, or if new evidence is introduced in your trial, it may be in your best interest to appeal the decision. Massive paperwork is needed in any appeal case and our trained appellate attorney will research every element of the law and cases like yours to seek a compelling reason to get you a second trial.
  • Restraining orders. These orders are common in domestic violence cases in which your activities are severely restricted regarding the “protected” person. Unfortunately, these orders can be weaponized against you when exaggerations, falsehoods, and misrepresentations are used by your accuser. Our attorney can help you fight back against such ploys so that your freedom and rights are not violated.
  • Expungement. You may be able to get your criminal case record sealed or expunged through a legal process. Our attorney can determine if you qualify and help you navigate the process that will result in a better future going forward.
  • Massachusetts criminal defense lawyer. Our attorney also represents clients in our neighboring state of Massachusetts. We maintain an office in the center of Bristol County in Fall River.
