If you face criminal charges in Woburn, regardless of the allegations, it is imperative that you work with an attorney who regularly handles cases in Woburn District Court. Attorney Patrick J. Murphy has been helping clients overcome criminal cases in Middlesex County for more than 27 years. He understands how Woburn judges and prosecutors see cases and knows how to favorable position his clients’ cases.Getting to Court
