Haverhill District Court

Aggressive Essex County Criminal Defense Lawyer Representing Clients Facing Serious Misdemeanor and Felony Crimes

As a distant suburb of Boston, many people from various backgrounds call Haverhill home. For the most part, residents stay out of trouble. However, Haverhill police are known for being quite aggressive when it comes to investigating crime. And while the duty of a prosecutor is to pursue justice and not to necessarily seek a conviction in every case, most Essex County prosecutors don’t question what’s in a police report. Facing criminal charges in Haverhill District Court raises a few challenges, especially for those who are not from the area. If you’ve been arrested and charged with a serious crime, the Law Office of Patrick J. Murphy is here to help. Attorney Murphy has more than 28 years of experience defending clients in all types of criminal cases and knows what it takes to beat even the toughest charges.

Where Do You Go to Court After Being Arrested in Haverhill?

Regardless of whether you face misdemeanor or felony charges in Massachusetts, your case will almost certainly start off in a district court. There are more than 60 district courts around the state, each serving a relatively small geographical area. If you were arrested in Boxford, Bradford, Georgetown, Groveland and Haverhill, the Haverhill District Court will hear your case.

The courthouse is located at:

45 Ginty Boulevard
Haverhill, MA 01831

If you need to reach the courthouse, you can do so by calling 978-521-7300.

If you plan on driving to the courthouse, there is free parking on Ginty Blvd. However, there is a 10-hour time limit. The Haverhill District Court is also accessible by the MBTA. Just take the Haverhill Line to the Haverhill Station stop. Keep in mind, however, that the courthouse is still about a mile away from the station.

How to Get a Haverhill Police Report

If you’ve been arrested, one thing you can do to learn more about the government’s allegations against you is to request a copy of the police report. While a police report is just one piece of discovery in a criminal case, it can provide you with some information, such as the arresting officer’s name, the circumstances of your arrest, and possibly a brief summary of any evidence the officer relied on when making the arrest.

To obtain a copy of a police report, you must contact the police department of the city where you were arrested. In Haverhill, you can either complete an online records request or head down to the police station at 40 Bailey Boulevard, Haverhill, MA 01830. To obtain a full copy of the discovery pertaining to your case, reach out to a Haverhill criminal defense attorney.
