Wrentham District Court

Dedicated Criminal Defense Lawyer Skillfully Represents Clients Across Norfolk County

Wrentham is a small community and, as a result, facing criminal charges in Wrentham District court requires a unique approach. Unlike major cities like Boston, local police and prosecutors have not yet adopted a focus on restorative justice and instead rely on strict punishments for anyone convicted of a crime. If you were arrested in Wrentham, Foxborough, Franklin, Medway, Millis, Norfolk, Plainville, Walpole, or any of the smaller surrounding communities, you need a local criminal defense attorney who is familiar with the local court system. Attorney Patrick J. Murphy is a veteran Norfolk lawyer with extensive experience handling cases across Norfolk County. He regularly appears in Wrentham District Court and understands how the police and prosecutors think. This enables him to develop compelling defense strategies that can help you keep your life on track.

Getting to Court

Massachusetts trial courts are divided up into 62 district courts, scattered across the state. Every district court serves its local community. The judges in these courts typically live in the community, as do the prosecutors. If police arrested you in Wrentham, Foxborough, Franklin, Medway, Millis, Norfolk, Plainville, or Walpole, your case will be heard at the Quincy District Court.

The local courthouse is located at:

60 East Street
Wrentham, MA 02093

There is free parking in the rear of the courthouse; however, the courthouse is inaccessible through public transportation. Generally, you must appear at every court hearing. However, if you have trouble making it to your court date, your attorney can request that the judge waive your appearance.

Wrentham Police Reports

When police arrest you, they must complete a police report. These reports are usually filled out either at the scene or back at the station shortly after your arrest. A police report contains some important information about your arrest, such as the crimes you are alleged to have committed. It may also include a brief description of the evidence police relied on to arrest you. To obtain a copy of a Wrentham police report, you must contact the police department directly at 89 South Street, Wrentham, MA 02093. Keep in mind, if you face certain crimes, such as domestic violence allegations, a police report may not be publicly available. In these cases, your lawyer can obtain a redacted copy.
