Confident, Prepared & Available
I hired Caleb to represent me in a criminal case and it was the best decision I could have made. Caleb was always reassuringly confident and prepared, and was available to me whenever I had questions or concerns. He helped get me the best result possible, which certainly would not have happened without his assistance. If you find yourself in need of a criminal attorney, do yourself a favor and hire Caleb.

Absolutely Amazing Attorney
Mr.Koufman is not only an amazing attorney, he’s an amazing person. He’s the most understanding attorney I have ever met. I got lucky by the grace of God that he took my case because without him I would be in jail right now. He got a tough charge in a blown up situation dismissed with ease no problem. He was so understanding of my personal life with my family and my financial circumstances and catered to my every need. Anyone reading this should hire him, he knows the justice system like the back of his hand. I was unlawfully arrested, and I was targeted by the justice system and he stood for me. Without him I wouldn’t be continuing my music career the way I should and helped me turn a new leaf. I’m only 21 years old in college and he held me supper accountable and taught me responsibility as an adult to handle the business that should always be taken care of no matter the circumstances, just like how he took care of me no matter the circumstances thrown his way or mine! Please hire him! You’d be doing yourself a tremendous favor.

1st OUI
Caleb took a stressful, uncertain situation and made it an organized plan of defense that put my apprehension and anxiety at ease. He was able to get the OUI charge against me dismissed! I’m not sure anyone else could have done that. He is very knowledgeable, and helpful. He kept me informed, answered all my questions, explained my options, and most importantly kept me confident with his abilities. I would highly recommend him!!!

Responsiveness, knowledgeable and professional.
Caleb was amazing. He had a short amount of time to prepare for my case and from the beginning he was positive that my hearing would get dismissed. He proved my innocents instantly. I couldn’t thank him enough.

Attorney Koufman represented me on an OUI trail and he got the Not Guilty! This was a long and painstaking process because covid delayed everything and because of this being my first and only offense, but Attorney Koufman was in constant communication with me and very reassuring. At the trial, Attorney Koufman used the officer’s police report to show the officer was making things up. His cross examination was impressive. His closing was great too. And his courtroom presence sealed the deal. Hire him!!

Caleb Koufman saves the day!
Wow, how lucky could a defendant be to have Attorney Caleb Koufman as his defense lawyer. Caleb worked diligently to get my 2 criminal cases dismissed. He was always available by phone, text, or email. He even visited me regularly in county jail while my bail had been revoked. His dedication and persistence to fighting my case was impressive. I was extremely pleased with the outcome of both matters that he represented me on. I would highly recommend his services to anyone seeking legal representation.

An attorney who communicates and fights.
Caleb will fight harder than any other attorney for you. Caleb represented me on two probation violations and he refused to back down. Even when the court officer tried to kick me out of the building telling me to join Zoom court, Caleb defended me in the hallway and then got the judge to tell the court officer to let me stay for the full hearing. It needed to be in-person because there was going to be live testimony, according to Caleb. Caleb was right. Caleb demanded full probation hearings, with testimony, both times, and both times, we won. I have no violations on my record during the times that Caleb represented me. Sometimes, it's easier for people to do what's easy for the court and for probation, but Caleb won't do that. He will fight for you and get you the result you deserve. And, also unlike other attorneys, he will maintain an open line of communication with you the whole time. You should hire him.

Communicates and Gets Results
Attorney Koufman represented me on a criminal matter in Waltham District Court. He's clearly a regular in that court. He knows all the personnel and I think the judges really like him because everything he asked for was granted. I got a great result and he got all the money that I owed waived. Add to that the fact that he was easy to reach for the whole time he represented me. This attorney calls and texts you back and he cares about your life! You should hire him!

Above and beyond
So I'd like to say that if you are looking for a dedicated and loyal and committed lawyer Caleb Koufman would be your lawyer. I just recently had a case that was dismissed. Assault and Battery Fare evasion Lawyer was so committed to paying attention to every detail that I have been accused of. Every day he always provided me with new information regarding my case Day before the actual trial we went over and went over the testimony in order to be prepared for the case. Heard that word was that I am a minority I am a bi-racial person and the VA was determined to press charges against me. During the process I lost an opportunity at a job and I also lost my arm Section 8 housing I was a nervous wreck everyday I was reassured by my lawyer. He gave me the confidence that I needed to be patient and to work and fight through the issues And the one advice that I would give during the pandemic that he graciously gave to me was that if something's worth fighting for Demand the dignity and Respect as well as the approprite place to be heard. Present yourself in a respectful manner Most important reasearch the case the charges and the lawyer.

A lawyer who actually cares and calls you back.
Attorney Koufman was able to do the job that two other attorneys couldn't and he got my case dismissed. I highly recommend him. He answered my phone calls and was extremely attentive to my case. He stuck up for me when nobody else would and he didn't let the system trample me.

Excellent OUI lawyer
Attorney Koufman handled my OUI 2nd. It was among the most stressful times in my life, but he was thorough and responsive. The government actually charged me with an OUI 3rd at first, but Attorney Koufman proved that was an error and he had the record corrected. The case ended in a NOT GUILTY!!! Attorney Koufman is a dutiful and thorough attorney and I would recommend him to family and friends.
