South Shore, Massachusetts, Criminal Defense Lawyer
It is important to remember that being charged with a criminal offense doesn’t make you a criminal. At The Law Offices Burke, Espinola, & van Colen, I am a strong believer that you are innocent unless the state or municipal government proves otherwise, beyond reasonable doubt.

And Will Meet You at a Time and Location Most Convenient for You
Whether you have been charged with OUI, Serious Criminal Charges or a Violent Felony Offense, I urge you to consider the importance of hiring a defense attorney with valuable trial skills. As a former Assistant District Attorney, I was in court hundreds of times, where I learned that a defense attorney has the best chance of getting a favorable outcome when experience, education, knowledge and vigorous representation are evident. Strong litigation skills can be a very effective negotiating tool for a defense attorney. I use all of my experience to fight and have your charges dismissed and keep you out of jail.
I handle all Massachusetts misdemeanor and felony charges such as:
- OUI and drunk driving charges
- Domestic violence
- Assault and homicide
- Theft, burglary and robbery
- Drug charges
- Sex crimes, solicitation and prostitution
- Fraud, identity theft and check forgery
Dual Diagnosis: Mental health and Substance Abuse Issues
Many violent charges are intertwined with either mental health or substance abuse issues. If that is the case, a relatively straightforward criminal defense case can become much more complicated. If you or a loved one is facing criminal charges and either of these issues is involved in the case, it is wise to secure counsel with experience handling the specific difficulties that these kinds of cases present. I am experienced and proficient in dealing with the difficulties of criminal charges when mental health and/or substance abuse issues are present.
