Legal Guidance Following An Arrest

Arrested in Massachusetts while on vacation or at school? Criminal defense attorney John P. McKenna defends the rights of students, visitors and tourists who face Massachusetts criminal charges. Depending on the allegations against you, you may not even have to come back to Massachusetts to contest your charges.

Extensive Trial And Negotiation Experience

Attorney John McKenna has tried more than 220 cases and has more than two decades of experience. As a former prosecutor who has trained state, federal and local law enforcement, he knows what to expect in a Massachusetts criminal case.

We will investigate your criminal charges and determine whether you would benefit from negotiating with the prosecutors, accepting a plea bargain or fighting for a dismissal in court. We will discuss your options in plain English and listen to all of your concerns. Then, we will vigorously defend your interests.

Defending You When Pulled Over On The Massachusetts Turnpike

We defend clients from Vermont, New York, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Connecticut and any other state who face OUI/DUI/DWI (drunk driving) or traffic violations. Common locations for police stops include: I-91, I-90, I-291, I-391, Route 20, Route 4 and Route 9.

We also defend individuals who have been pulled over on the I-91 and I-90 corridors for suspicion of transporting drugs. State police look for cars with out-of-state license plates and, oftentimes, do not have justification for the stops they make. We may be able to bring a motion to suppress any evidence found during an unjustified stop and move to dismiss your case.

Providing Representation For College Students And Alums

If you are a student from out of state or a visiting alum facing charges in Massachusetts, you have a right to speak to a Massachusetts attorney. We will advise you and help you understand your legal rights, whatever criminal charges you face, including:

  • Underage drinking
  • Malicious destruction of property
  • Theft and burglary
  • Disorderly conduct
  • Drug possession
