I was charged with shoplifting charges in November 2014. I was an unintentional mistake but for those who do not know me, it was easy to be convinced that I was guilty - It was the most awkward situation in my life.
I came to US to pursue higher education (F-1 Visa) and any criminal complaint on my file means that I might be immediately deported or loose my job there by loosing the Visa status. Resolving this issue was very important for me due to immigration issues. I read about Mr. Lewin online and went through his website where he listed out few more shoplifting cases that were carefully taken care off. I immediately contacted him and explained him the entire situation. Upon receiving the summons, I met Mr.Lewin and completed the formalities. He was very knowledgeable and explained me the clauses, gave me a copy of state law for shoplifting, discussed in detail about the process of what happens next with this case.
I was pleased by the way he handled this case, he represented me in front of Court Magistrate and convinced her to have my case DISMISSED WITH OUT A CRIMINAL COMPLAINT being issued against me.
I would definitely refer him.
Had an outstanding warrant for 21 years that I recently found out about in Lawrence mass. I currently live in Florida and got the run around from the court system. I called Mr Lewin and within a week he had appeared in court in my behalf and got the warrant removed without me having to travel to Mass
I was accused of a hit and run. Bob was an excellent lawyer. From the moment I contacted Bob, he immediately demonstrated his commitment to my case by advocating on my behalf. Bob's wealth of knowledge and experience gave me confidence throughout the process. He kept me informed of the status of my case, and always returned my messages promptly. Bob was a professional, considerate, and invaluable ally; as a direct result of Bob's assistance, the charges were dropped.
We all dislike lawyers until we actually need one. So should life's complexities and challenges lead to you to need a lawyer, I would highly recommend Robert Lewin from Lewin & Lewin. In the summer of 2014, I was served a harassment order by Somerville District Court which was initiated by my former roommate. Subsequently, I was arrested for allegedly violating the harassment order which I refuted, then and now. I met with Mr. Lewin at his North Andover office to discuss my case. He took his time to evaluate my case and gave me a fixed price for case preparation and each court appearance. Before coming to Mr. Lewin, I met with six other lawyers to discuss my case and assess how much they would charge me. On average, their fees were roughly 5x higher compared to Mr. Lewin.
On the trial date, Mr. Lewin was able to have my case was dismissed. He didn't drag his feet to prolong the case. As a former prosecutor, now a criminal defense lawyer, I found Mr. Lewin to be thorough, well experienced and successfully brought a satisfactory conclusion to my case. I highly recommend him.
My son was facing a series of serious charges, including O.U.I.-Drugs and possession of various controlled/illegal substances. Although several of the actions pertaining to his arrest were poorly-executed by the state police officer and there were CLEAR instances of the arresting officer blatantly lying (there were several very questionable actions by the police officer including the administration/interpretation of the Standard Field Sobriety Test, as well as questions pertaining to illegal search/seizure), which may well have ultimately resulted in a "not guilty" disposition, the case was satisfactorily resolved at the pre-trial hearing. The most serious charges were dropped, and several others were "Continued Without Finding" as part of a year's "administrative probation".
Given the initial charges, the outcome was very satisfactory, and hiring Attorney Lewin turned out to be an excellent decision. I would do so, again, in a heartbeat, and can highly recommend his services to anyone, without reservation.
Our son was recently charged with breaking and entering. Bob saw the case for what it was, a couple of kids thinking an old abandoned house would make a great fort. The homeowner pressed charges, went right for the kill, and Bob got the case diverted. My son will not have a record and we have piece of mind. This could have, and probably would have, gone in a very different direction without his help. Bob is a cut above the rest, very experienced, and very clear in explaining the process to us. He saved our son.
I completed the Brady Background check for the purchase of a firearm. I was very surprised that I failed the background check due to a Warrant in Lawrence, MA. 36 years ago I was stopped by the police, and did not have my license on me. When I drove away it was my understanding that I had received a warning. Robert Lewin took on my case, and had the Warrant dismissed in a day. I was very appreciative as I did not want to from from Denver, CO to Massachusetts to manage this issue. In the long run hiring Robert saved me time and money. I would recommend his services to my best friend!
In August my wife and I were both charged with Larceny over $250 in Massachusetts. After our first meeting with Mr. Lewin there was a sense of relief. He is extremely knowledgeable about the law and how it works. He knew what the exact process he was going to take would be. He had multiple options for us to take for our cases to turn out great in our favor and promised he would try every single one. He was GREAT with communication, sending email updates as soon as he got them. He got the DA to agree to both our cases being dismissed prior to arraignment within 1 week of us hiring him. He worked around the clock to get his job done and supplied us with nothing but the best in defense.
I felt very reassured about everything after my first meeting with him. I was facing being charged with domestic assault & battery. We were able to get the case dismissed at a clerk’s hearing so it did not go on my record. Attorney Lewin is extremely knowledgeable, and good at what he does. He's a cut above the rest.
Awesome and thorough attorney!
Took his time to explain things in a language that I could understand.
Helped me with a shoplifting charge.
