I had a recent case in Lawrence district court. The first thing I did wrong was send my citation to Boston instead of bringing it to court. I went to the clerk magistrates office when it came back to me and the person in the office told me it was too late, that a summons was already issued. Because of my checkered past I knew if I went in front of a judge un-represented they would probably throw the book at me. So, I made a great decision and called Bob. He was my first call and last call. He called me back from his vacation and we talked about the situation. He then called the magistrate office and worked his magic and told me to go there and they will grant me a hearing. I did, and they did. This is all before we even spoke about retaining him. After meeting with Bob it was a no-brainer that I needed him to represent me. He kept me informed throughout the whole process and knew everyone and everything. When it finally came time for the hearing date Bob went in the day before and made sure that all the facts were there and correct. The magistrate called me in and we proceeded into the room, we sat down and looked over the file and report. A few words were exchanged between Bob and the 2 other men in the room and next thing I know I am walking out of there without a blip on my record.
All I can say is hire this man, he is the best of the best.

I have known Attorney Robert Lewin for over 50 years. We practiced law in the same community (Malden, Massachusetts) for close to 40 years. Bob is one of the most accomplished criminal defense lawyers I have ever known. Since I do not handle criminal matters directly, I have always referred my clients with criminal matters to him so that he could handle their cases. He consistently secures excellent results and client feedback is always positive.
Bob is very experienced,extremely knowledgeable, attentive to detail and practices law in the most ethical manner. Perhaps most important, he is well known and highly respected by Judges, Prosecutors and other lawyers. Bob Lewin is always prepared, never afraid to try a case, makes an excellent impression. On a personal note, he is a very decent person.

I got myself into a horrible situation in 2008 and was charged with 2 felonies that I ended up serving time for and being put on probation for 3 years. I was coming up to the end of my probation and violated by getting an OUI. I hired Bob to help me in my OUI case and my superior court probation violation. He made sure to tell me everything that was going on at all times, which I was not used to...because in my other case I was left out of everything that went on in my case. Bob was very informative on everything that could happen to me considering my record. So we went to my first court date and got my driving on a suspended dismissed and my OUI continued without a finding! I was so happy because I thought it was going to be way worse. We then went to my probation violation hearing where I easily could have been sentenced a substantial amount of jail time and with Bobs help I ended up only getting 3 days in Framingham and another year of probation !!! I am very relieved that these cases are over with and now I can go on with my life. Even after the case is over Bob has still offered to help me if the RMV gives me any issues when it comes time to get my license back. Thank you so much Bob!!

Although there was some confusion at the beginning of our procedure Bob was very attentive after that and answered all of my questions in a timely manner. He was extremely helpful throughout the process. Being from Maine, I brought different hurtles to the proceedings but Bob, with all his years of experience, was easily able to adjust and made the whole process move forward smoothly. We achieved the ultimate goal in the end and I highly recommend Bob Lewin to anyone requiring such services. Thanks Bob.

I hired Bob for criminal defense in late February and he had me walking out a free man with no criminal record in late April. He is very knowledgeable in his profession and has answers to your problems.
I would recommend Bob Lewin to anybody that finds them self in a tough legal situation. This man will work for you.

Bob was professional and knowledgable, but also made things easy to understand. He responded to our questions quickly and made us feel secure in his ability to represent us. He has helped our family on several occasions over the years, and we would not only come to him again, but would also highly recommend him!

Mr. Lewin is the measure of a true professional. I was facing probation violations in district and superior court. Both carried suspended sentences. One of them being the ancient "Concord 10" Year suspended sentence. Including 4 larceny counts that I had not yet been arraigned. Running from my past seemed like the best option. After retaining Mr. Lewin he negotiated 7 default removals and 7 warrants cancelled. New charges dropped upon payment of fines. Probation in both courts terminated and in one months time since retaining Mr. Lewin I had my life back after 18 years on the run. It would have taken less time had I not requested a delay to attend a very important family celebration. I walked in and out of 2 courts in 2 days and I am still in shock. He knows what he's doing. He kept me informed and involved in the entire process as well as keeping my immediate family up to speed, comfortable and hopeful throughout. Without this man I am certain the results would have been different and they would have had a devastating impact on my wife and 2 young children. I never believed that the disaster of my past could ever be fixed. If you are serious about turning things around for yourself. If something from your past comes back to bite you or if you are facing new criminal charges Hire Bob Lewin. He gave me my life back
