Seeking the Best Disposition for Clients

Whether a client has been charged with disturbing the peace or has been given notice of a no contact order, assault and battery attorney Arnel diligently strives to protect clients' rights and interests.

In a recent case of first impression in Massachusetts history, we represented a client seeking to expunge not only her criminal record, but also the record of a 209A restraining order, in attempt to preserve her reputation for future employment. The court remanded and expunged the criminal record and also found that the restraining order was obtained fraudulently, and according to the judge, "failing to expunge would allow false information to remain in the record."
