A crime is any act or omission that is in violation of a law or an omission. Each state, including the Commonwealth of Massachusetts has its own criminal code.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
I received a letter informing me that I was under investigation for fraud. Attorney Faigel reviewed that facts of the case and implemented a plan of action. As a result, the case was dropped and the investigation ended. He was fair and to the point in all of our discussions. His quick work saved me a lot of time, distress and money. I hired the right attorney. RF
★★★★★
I hired Attorney Faigel after another lawyer told me that there was nothing else he could do on my case and I was going to lose my license for 30 days. Attorney Faigel would not take no for an answer. He was somehow able to get some of the charges dismissed and I was able to keep my license. Without it, I would not have been able to work and would have lost a great deal. I would highly recommend Attorney Faigel. WB
★★★★★
I was involved in a very serious offense that, if convicted of, would have sent me to jail for the rest of my life. Attorney Faigel, through his diligent investigation and contacts with law enforcement, was able to keep me from being charged with a crime. I would recommend him to anyone. He is expensive, but worth every penny. JL
★★★★★
I hired Attorney Faigel for a very serious case. Even though he was expensive, he was well worth every dollar. He kept me informed every step of the way and never promised me anything that he could not deliver on. He saved my husband and our family. HB
