Every Criminal Defense Trial in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Effects Someone!

Obviously not every Massachusetts criminal trial is as high profile as the one involving Dzhokhar Tsarnaev the accused Boston Marathon bombing suspect.  However each and every criminal trial in the Commonwealth has one thing in common.  That the accused is innocent until proven guilty.

Are you or someone you care about been accused of white collar crime, a juvenile crime, armed robbery, or worse?  Whom you hire to represent you will have long-term consequences on that person’s future.  They could be facing years of incarceration and a loss of future dignity and income.

Think carefully when dealing with decisions of such gravity.  Look for someone who will fight for you and/or your loved one that has only your best interest at heart.  You need someone who knows the criminal court system inside and out and can achieve the best possible outcome for the defendant.

That person may well be Paul R. Moraski.  He has never worked for the prosecutor’s office!  He believes it is better to have years of experience establishing defenses for people accused of crimes.  If it ever becomes a life-changing priority to hire a criminal attorney, contact the law office of Paul R. Moraski from www.northofbostonlaw.com at (978) 397-0011.

How are Massachusetts Residents Effected by The Controlled Substances Act?

In Massachusetts, thousands of people are charged with drug crimes every year.  The U.S. Controlled Substances Act sets the criteria for what constitutes criminal offenses in the manufacturing, possession, sale and abuse of drugs. According to state and federal laws, a controlled substance considered to be a drug can be:
  • Cocaine
  • Heroin
  • Methamphetamines
  • Barbiturates
  • Marijuana
  • Illegally prescribed or abuse of prescription drugs
  • Altered over-the-counter drugs
  • Other illegal substances
The above list includes some of the most insidious drugs and some that when taken in moderation are actually beneficial.  For instance, prescription drugs that have been abused because an individual has taken more than prescribed because they were purchased illegally. 

If you have sold some of the less dangerous drugs such as marijuana, prescription drugs, or barbiturates you are just as guilty and you require strong representation in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.  Contact The Law Office of Paul Moraski at (978) 397-0011 right away for aggressive help with your drug crime accusation.
