Law Office of Matthew W. Peterson Secures Probation for Client Facing Life Without Parole

Updated: Mar 13

In April 2017, the Law Office of Matthew W. Peterson, a criminal defense attorney, secured probation and release for our client charged with robbery and assault. Because of our client's record, he was facing mandatory life without the possibility of parole if convicted.

Our client was charged with taking the wallet of the victim with a gun, then hitting the victim with a gun. We investigated the case thoroughly, securing important records and interviewing numerous witnesses. Our defense was misidentification based on the victim identifying our client only through the news.

On the day of trial, based on our work, the prosecution decided to reduce the charge and offer probation, meaning our client was able to be released from jail and avoid prison.

If you want a criminal attorney who will fight for you and look for every possible way to win your case call me today at 617-356-8217. While my office is located in Boston, I handle criminal cases all over Massachusetts, including robbery and assault cases. Let's get started on your defense today.

DISCLAIMER: Please keep in mind that the results we obtained are case-dependent, and we may not be able to secure the same result for you. Please discuss your case with a qualified criminal defense attorney to find out the applicable law for your situation.
