If you have been brought up on criminal charges, it is your best interest to start planning your defense right away to ensure your best chance of winning an acquittal or getting a favorable plea bargain.

Having the counsel of an experienced Massachusetts criminal defense attorney who knows both sides of the process is vitally important to a successful defense.
For almost 25 years, Mark W. Bennett has protected and defended the rights of criminal defendants as a Massachusetts criminal defense attorney. A former police detective and prosecutor, Attorney Bennett is well-versed in how laws are enforced, how cases are built, and how prosecutors work, which allows him to anticipate the opposing counsel’s strategies and think like a prosecutor when building his defense strategy.
Understand Your Rights
If you are arrested, it is important that you do not try to “explain your side” to the police, as this will probably hurt your case. You may think you are trying to profess your innocence, but anything you say at all can come back to hurt you later if it is found to be even slightly inconsistent with what the police know. You have the right to remain silent and the right to speak with an attorney, and you should exercise those rights to ensure any chance of having a successful defense. Contact Mark W. Bennett at 617-296-8282.
