Boston Criminal Lawyer / Massachusetts Criminal Defense Attorney 


Serving All of Massachusetts

When you’re under investigation or facing criminal charges, you need a lawyer who can get the job done.  Attorney Steven J. Topazio is a tough, aggressive, experienced and well-qualified criminal trial lawyer that will use his courtroom savvy and knowledge of the law to your advantage. Experience is the difference.


If you have been arrested, received a summons in the mail, or under criminal investigation; representing yourself is usually not your best option.  Without the proper legal advice, you might unwittingly say or do things you believe are in your own defense that are used by the prosecution in its case against you.  Police and prosecutors are trained professionals in the area of criminal prosecutions and will capitalize on every mistake you make and will certainly take advantage of your inexperience in court.  You can’t afford to make any mistakes when you are in trouble, especially not having the appropriate lawyer. Attorney Topazio is your right choice to defend your freedom for the best possible outcome.
