Concord District Court
Concord is one of the safest Boston suburbs. However, the fact that the rate of serious crime is low enables law enforcement to focus their efforts on investigating crimes that may be considered minor elsewhere in the state. And, given the low crime rate, prosecutors and judges take an especially harsh stance against crime. The result is that if you have a criminal case in Concord District Court, you need a Middlesex criminal defense attorney who knows what to expect and how to effectively defend against the allegations. At the Law Office of Patrick J. Murphy, Attorney Murphy has nearly three decades of experience handling cases in Concord District Court. Over this time, he’s come to know many of the local judges and prosecutors, giving him insight into which defenses are best suited in each case.Where to Go to Court After a Concord Arrest
In Massachusetts, most criminal cases, with the exception of those in Boston, are heard at the district court level. There are more than 60 district courts across the state, each serving a handful of nearby cities.
