If you are accused of a crime, you may feel like the whole world is against you. Too often, criminal defendants lack the proper representation to appropriately fight their charges or to navigate the complex criminal justice system. White & Associates will ensure that you are aggressively, skillfully, and creatively represented throughout the criminal process and we will work tirelessly to obtain the best possible result for you.
White & Associates has successfully defended hundreds of drug crimes for clients facing narcotics charges in federal and Massachusetts courts. Narcotics crimes cover the following offenses: Drug Conspiracy, Drug Trafficking, Simple Drug Possession, Drug Distribution, Drug Manufacture, Possession with Intent to Distribute, Prescription Fraud and Habitual Offender Charges. White & Associates has also litigated multiple narcotics cases with substantial law enforcement wiretaps and/or electronic surveillance of defendants and is highly experienced in the law surrounding wiretap warrants and electronic surveillance. White & Associates has even taught seminars to other attorneys regarding electronic surveillance and cell phone technology.
We have also successfully defended hundreds of firearm crimes which include the following offenses: Possession of a Firearm, Possession of a Sawed-Off Shotgun, Possession of a High Capacity Weapon, Possession of a Loaded Firearm, Failure to Properly Secure a Firearm, Felon in Possession of a Weapon, and Armed Career Criminal charges.
Violent & Sexual Crimes
White & Associates has successfully defended many clients accused of violent and sexual crimes. Violent crimes cover the following offenses: Manslaughter, Arson, Mayhem, Home Invasion, Bank Robbery, Armed Home Invasion, Armed Assault with Attempt to Murder, Attempted Murder and Murder.
Sexual assault crimes include the following offenses: Rape, Attempted Rape, Lewd and Lascivious Behavior and Indecent Assault and Battery.
In these cases, the entire prosecution often rests on the unsupported testimony of one victim. White & Associates will fully investigate the background of this victim, their motive to lie and their past history in the criminal justice system to ensure that the jury has a full picture of this witness. In many cases we have found that inconsistent statements from the victim (such as transcripts of prior restraining order hearings, prior evidentiary hearings, prior depositions, prior statements given under oath) can be successfully used to cast reasonable doubt.
Operating Under the Influence (OUI)
White & Associates specializes in cases where a client is facing a subsequent OUI charge.
OUI offenses can be very serious for an individual because they carry mandatory minimum sentences and can cause you to lose your license for life.
Prosecutions of OUI usually rests on arbitrary field sobriety tests that lack any scientific basis and breath test readings that are often improperly calibrated and improperly utilized. We construct motions to compel discovery of background of breath test operators as required by 501 CMR 2.23, background on breath test device and simulator certifications pursuant to 501 CMR 2.39 and background on the testing of the breath test device and simulator as required by 501 CMR 2.41. We have effectively beaten several OUI cases despite substantial evidence of intoxication while driving.
