Make your first call count with our Criminal Defense Service
Your Constitutional rights may be in effect the moment you are stopped by the police. Once you have been charged with a crime, it is important that you contact an attorney as soon as you can. Attorney Mohammed has handled hundreds of criminal cases, successfully resulting in dozens of cases to Not Guiltys.
Some of the services in criminal defense that Attorney Mohammed provides are:
Assault and Battery
This is situation in which two offenses are combined to define a single expression of an unlawful act of a person threatening through actions (Assault) and deliberate physical contact with another person (Battery). The consequences for each vary with Battery receiving a more severe sentence then assault. According to Massachusetts Law, assault and assault and battery crimes can be punished up to 2.5 years in the state prison and even more severely if the assault is severe enough. The experience we have would allow us to employ a strategy that would clarify the intent of the actions taken to arrive at a desirable outcome for our client.
Larceny (Misdemeanor and Felony)
The difference between misdemeanor and felony in larceny cases reveals itself in the magnitude of the sentences accountable to the case. Misdemeanor larceny charges occur when the value of the property is less than $250. A felony larceny charge is for property higher than that limit and higher chance of longer sentences and larger fines overall. Both charges are high risk for citizens with a previous conviction. In Massachusetts, the most common felony theft crimes include: Larceny in the form of stealing, by embezzlement, by check, of rented property, and of a motor vehicle. We will seek to demonstrate a clarity in the intent of actions regarding the separation of property from its owner.
Breaking and Entering
In Massachusetts, to be charged with breaking and entering, state must clarify between the intent to commit a misdemeanor and the intent to commit a felony. Unless caught in the act, Breaking & Entering cases rest heavily on evidence which can be challenged in court, in which eye-witnesses are notoriously unreliable, and video cameras offer only poor sound quality and are often grainy and unfocused. It is for the commonwealth to establish beyond doubt the intentions of the accused. Urgently contacting a lawyer with criminal court experience is essential to handling this serious situation and achieving the most desirable outcome possible.
Leaving the Scene of a Motor Vehicle Accident
Fleeing the scene of a car accident, or a hit and run, can result in very serious ramifications down the road. A hit and run is defined as being involved in a car accident with a pedestrian, another car, or a fixed object and leaving the scene without stopping to identify yourself or provide aid to anyone who might need assistance. You could be accountable for either criminal, administrative or civl penalties depending on the severity of the event. If not dealt with promptly and effectively, a leaving the scene of an accident charge can potentially result in serious criminal penalties. With that said, in Massachusetts, most hit and run accidents are minor and if dealt with promptly (at the magistrates office) will minimize the disruptive potential of the incident.
Operating a Motor Vehicle with a Suspended License
In Massachusetts, its a crime to operate a motor vehicle after your license has been suspended or revoked. The truth is real life often gets in the way and risks are taken “just this once” because of circumstances that are seemingly beyond a defendants control. However its possible to arrive at a decision that benefits the accused since the Commonwealth must prove beyond doubt; (a) the defendant operated a motor vehicle, (b)At the time the defendant was operating a motor vehicle his or her driving privileges had been revoked, (c) the defendant or an agent of the defendant had received notice that his or her driving privileges had been or were about to be suspended or revoked.
