Aggressive Legal Services You Can Depend On.
Brett Beaubien is a trial and appellate lawyer licensed to practice in state and federal court in Rhode Island and Massachusetts. His practice focuses on criminal defense: from trial through appeal. Mr. Beaubien relentlessly litigates on behalf of his clients to preserve their Constitutional Rights and to obtain the best result possible in each case.
Brett attended Roger Williams University School of Law, where he excelled in trial and appellate litigation, obtaining the highest achievement award for criminal litigation, and for appellate writing and advocacy. In his second year, he became the winner of his law school's Moot Court competition in an argument before the Supreme Court of Rhode Island. He authored an article published in the school's Law Review, and served as Student Chair of the law school's student disciplinary tribunal, overseeing the prosecution of complaints of student misconduct.
Brett spent his law school summers with the U.S. Military; first as a legal intern supporting the DOD's international law mission with the Defense Institute for International Legal Studies at Naval Station Newport in 2014, and then as a legal intern with the U.S. Navy Judge Advocate Generals Corp in Sicily, Italy, in 2015. He finished his law school career as a student attorney defending indigent clients in the Criminal Defense Clinic, appearing before the Rhode Island District Court and Rhode Island Traffic Tribunal.
Now, he aggressively defends his clients in Rhode Island and Massachusetts courts every day. Brett is dedicated to fighting for truth and justice, and to obtaining the most favorable results for every client, and prepares each case as if he were going to trial.
