My name is Paul Toland and I practice Criminal Defense and Immigration. I am an experienced trial attorney and I started my career as an Assistant District Attorney prosecuting those charged with crimes for about 3 years. I had the opportunity to hone my skills in the courtroom and tried over 100 cases. Since leaving the District Attorney's Office, I worked in two law firms practicing Immigration and Criminal Defense in the private sector. I practice before the District and Superior courts of Massachusetts as well as the Immigration court located in downtown Boston by my office.
Concerning my Immigration practice, I handle all matters before the Immigration Court and United States Citizenship and Immigration Services. I handle matters such as Removal Defense, Asylum, Cancellation of Removal, Adjustment of Status, Naturalization, Special Immigrant Juveniles, Nonimmigrant visas, Consular Processing, and Employment Immigration.
Criminal Defense and Immigration intertwine a lot and I have helped dozens of clients vacate their criminal convictions in order to save them from being deported for a criminal conviction. There are certain crimes such as aggravated felonies and crimes of moral turpitude that will render someone to mandatory deportation, permanent exclusion from admission, and ineligibility for naturalization.
Additionally, I am a very experienced OUI/DUI/DWI attorney having handled hundreds of these types of cases in combination as a prosecutor and criminal defense attorney. I know the angles in how the prosecution will prosecute the case as I used to be the one on the other side. There are many defenses I can use in an OUI case and you need someone with experience such as myself to help you navigate through this difficult time.
I also handle any criminal defense charges ranging from misdemeanors to serioius felonies. I have represented clients charged with attempted murder, drug crimes, sex crimes, domestic violence, crimes of violence, weapons charges, theft crimes, breaking and entering, and motor vehicle offenses.
