The Plymouth County Trial Office represents clients facing a wide variety of misdemeanor and felony charges originating in the District and Superior courts of Plymouth County. Our attorneys practice client-centered representation: we are zealous advocates for our clients in the courtroom while recognizing that clients’ legal cases may have consequences beyond the case itself. In addition to our attorneys, investigators and social service advocates, along with the support staff, work to provide our clients with the highest quality representation.
