Wrentham District Court
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.
