Brockton District Court

Dedicated Criminal Defense Lawyer Defending the Freedom of Clients Throughout Plymouth County

Brockton has undergone tremendous change in recent years, which may be part of why the city suffers from a staggeringly high crime rate. As police try to do what they can to get a handle on the growing number of crimes, they also run the risk of over-policing. And while prosecutors are charged with seeking justice rather than seeking a conviction, in reality, most Plymouth County prosecutors assume every word in a police report is true. If you have a criminal case in Brockton District Court, you need an attorney who is ready to stand up for your rights at every step of the way. At the Law Office of Patrick J. Murphy, our Plymouth County criminal defense lawyer aggressively defends the rights of individuals facing all types of crimes in Brockton District Court.
