Attorney Michael Erlich

My interest in criminal law began while attending University of Miami School of Law. During my second year , I wasable to secure an internship with the State Attorney’s Office as a student prosecutor. I worked under Janet Reno,who later became our United States Attorney General. Over the last 23 years I have been representing individualsthroughout the Commonwealth with compassion, professionalism and the understanding that your case is all thatmatters. I am one of the few attorneys in Worcester County that devotes their entire practice to criminal defense andI have built a reputation based on results and dedication to my practice. In 2003 I was voted Massachusetts Lawyerof the Year.

Please take a moment and review my web site. I designed it with a specific focus on prior client reviews as well asrecent case summaries to reflect the types of cases handle. I believe this approach gives you an inside look at mylaw practice which will ultimately make you feel comfortable in choosing me to represent you. AVVO, a leadingindependent legal web site, has given me a superb rating of 10/10. This rating is calculated using a mathematicalmodel that considers elements such as years of experience, board certification, education, lack of disciplinaryhistory, professional achievement, and industry recognition. I represent individuals at all stages of a criminalinvestigation or prosecution.I have worked on and tried to juries successfully many high profile cases. My caseshave involved complicated charges and indictments for murder, insurance fraud, drug trafficking, sexual assault,kidnapping, as well as the more common OUI’s and domestic assault & batteries. I have persuaded prosecutorsto dismiss charges, convinced judges to reduce sentences and have won a significant number of acquittals at trial.

Most people don’t plan on getting charged or arrested but should you require my services, I am available 24 hours aday, will see you on weekends and more importantly, will never leave a call, text or e-mail unanswered.
