Dedham Felony and Misdemeanor Lawyer

Serving Boston and the surrounding Massachusetts area

As a defendant in a criminal trial, you have rights. But without a qualified criminal lawyer, who will ensure you receive a fair trial?

While misdemeanors are punishable by confinement to county or local jail and/or a fine, felonies may be punishable by death or incarceration in a Massachusetts or federal prison. If you have been charged with a felony or misdemeanor, you need an experienced criminal defense lawyer. Your freedom depends on it.

Providing quality legal defense since 1979

Criminal law attorney John E. DeVito has 30 years of experience defending clients against felony and misdemeanor charges, including:



  • Arson-related crimes
  • Credit card fraud
  • Disorderly conduct
  • Drug crimes

Boston Probation Violation Attorney

If you are convicted of or plead guilty to a crime you may be sentenced to probation. Probation has conditions, and violation of those conditions or failure to meet the requirements of probation could land you in jail. Defendants who violate the conditions of their probation while on a "straight" probation can either be re-probated or receive the maximum penalty under the law. Defendants who violate the conditions of their probation while on a suspended sentence can be ordered to complete the suspended sentence.

Probation violations can be a bigger threat to your freedom than prosecution for the crime itself, as you have very little with which to work. As an experienced criminal lawyer, Mr. DeVito will prepare a solid plan to present to the judge in order to keep you on probation and out of jail.
