With a 100% focus on criminal law, the Law Office of James M. Hanley is one of the most reliable and experienced criminal defense firms in the Massachusetts and Rhode Island area. I see my clients as people first. Maybe they have gotten themselves into bad situations or made a bad decision. I know there’s more to a person than the mistake they’ve made—but a police report doesn’t provide this perspective. I understand how people get into situations, and can thus help the court see a more holistic view of someone who has been charged with a crime. Often times, the more the Court knows about you and your unique circumstances, the better the outcomes.
