About Me


A Different Kind of Criminal Defense Lawyer
 People charged with criminal offenses in central Massachusetts have many criminal defense lawyers available to them. However, there is only one in the area with 10 years of experience as a state trooper and 25 years of experience as a criminal defense lawyer. Attorney Salerno served in many different branches of the Massachusetts State Police, including... the detective branch, the uniform branch and highway patrol. This gave him extensive experience with investigations and courtroom testimony — real experience he uses today to defend clients throughout Worcester County. He knows better than any other attorney how the "other side" operates.

    Mr. Salerno represented me on a traffic matter when I was in college. I am now a criminal defense attorney and I use my experience with him as a model for how I need to treat my clients and how to achieve positive results for them.
