There is no one-size-fits-all approach to legal matters; every client has different needs. An attorney who will work with you and inform you of all of your options is crucial, regardless of the type of legal issue you’re facing. Some of the services our office provides include:
Criminal Charge Defense
If you’re facing criminal charges, you need to work with an attorney immediately. Criminal charges of all types can result in jail time, steep fines and will have an impact on your future. You could face difficulties getting a job, finding housing and even qualifying for public assistance if you have a criminal record. Don’t take chances with your current freedom or your future; as soon as you’re arrested, contact a criminal defense attorney for assistance.
OUI Charge Defense
Massachusetts takes OUI charges very seriously. While a first-time conviction may not result in jail time, the conviction will remain on your record permanently and will play a role if you’re arrested for OUI later in life since these arrests and convictions are never removed from your record. You can potentially lose your license to operate a motor vehicle if you refuse a breathalyzer test for a period of one year. If you’re found guilty you could be facing an additional suspension of your license which will impact your ability to get back and forth to work.
Auto Insurance Claims
If you’re involved in an auto accident in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, you must file an initial claim with your own insurance company. However, under the no-fault statues, if your medical bills exceed $2,000 or you have suffered disfiguring injuries, broken bones or the loss of your hearing or vision in an accident, you may have the right to file a personal injury lawsuit against the other driver. Discuss the specifics of your accident with an attorney who will be able to tell you if you have the basis for a suit.
You need an attorney who will focus on your needs whether you’re facing criminal charges, OUI charges of if you’re considering a personal injury lawsuit. An attorney with a full understanding of the law is a must. When you need an attorney who will fight aggressively for your rights regardless of the type of legal matter you’re facing, contact Attorney Jamison M. House at 617-216-2094.
