A Criminal Defense Attorney You Can Trust
When you or someone close to you is charged with or is even suspected of a crime, the experience can be frightening. Beyond the emotion attached to the actual allegation, the question “what happens next?” comes with immediate concerns about the impact of the case on your family, your job, your license and your existing relationships to name a few. With so much riding on your case, you need an experienced attorney to guide you through the court process.
Rhode Island criminal law is defined by a set of specific statutes found in the Rhode Island General Laws. My name is Attorney Thomas H. O’Brien of The Law Offices of Thomas H. O'Brien, and I have a thorough understanding of these laws and the manner in which they’ve been interpreted by the Rhode Island Supreme Court. With more than 16 years’ experience practicing criminal law, I ensure that every one of my clients gets the full benefit of every law and every rule.
