About Me

I've had the opportunity to defend countless clients over the several years that I have been in practice.  I've helped people on simple matters like speeding tickets all the way up to serious felonies and murder.  I truly take pride in my work because I believe our constitutional system is truly unique in the world, where a defendant has a right to his/her day in court, a right to remain silent, and a right to put the government to the task of proving it's case.  While the system is certainly not perfect, it's my every day job to push it further and further toward a truly just system.  And, in doin so, I like to think that I have truly helped people out in their time of need.

    If you have been charged with a crime in the Commonwealth, you want James Abrenio by your side. It goes without saying that he navigates the courtroom and adversarial process with ease, but where James really shines is his dedication to his clients. James is a fighter who takes great pride in being the gatekeeper between a government with nearly limitless resources and the average citizen. Whether it is a low-level misdemeanor or a serious felony, James fights for and alongside his clients to protect their rights, ensuring the government has not overstepped its bounds and working tirelessly toward the right outcome. James is one of those rare attorneys who actually loves being an attorney and fighting against injustice. That is probably what makes him so inspiring at his profession. I endorse this attorney without reservation. He is an asset to the legal community and a boon to his clients.
