The Law Office of Robert W. Nolan

Being charged with any crime, whether a misdemeanor or a felony, can be an extremely frightening, isolating and life changing experience. It is important for a defendant to know their rights under the law and to act upon those rights immediately before any further damage can be done. Don’t wait to get help and make sure you are working with an attorney who specializes in criminal defense. Case law is always changing, and you need an effective criminal defense attorney who is up to date on recent legal developments through the Supreme Judicial Court and is well versed in the constitutional and state laws relating to identification, evidence, search and seizure, confessions and admissions, and joint ventures. Every case has its own specific fact patterns that need to be scrutinized by someone who is well versed in all aspects of the law.

Attorney Robert W. Nolan spent 28 years in law enforcement prior to opening his law practice and understands how the system works from all angles. He spent fourteen of those years as a detective, writing over 150 search warrant affidavits. Attorney Nolan will carefully investigate your case to uncover all available evidence. He will interview all parties involved, including police. He will bring in witnesses, when appropriate, to testify on your behalf. You will be presented with defense options to help you combat your charges and when appropriate, Attorney Nolan will negotiate with prosecutors to have your charges dismissed or reduced.
