Areas of Practice


Gallagher & Cavanaugh’s criminal defense group includes former prosecutors who currently practice before the District and Superior Courts throughout Massachusetts and New Hampshire.  We represent defendants at all stages of prosecution, from clerk magistrate’s hearings through trials and appeals, and in the following areas:

  • motor vehicle appeals;
  • suspension hearings before the RMV;
  • OUIs and DWIs;
  • motor vehicle homicides;
  • drug-related offenses;
  • restraining orders;
  • assault offenses;
  • theft offenses; and
  • sex-offender registry classification hearings.

Our experienced criminal attorneys strive to counsel our clients on the advantages and disadvantages of plea bargaining, and the consequences that an admission and/or conviction may have on an individual’s future, including such things as driver’s license status or immigration status.
