Part of the MetroWest part of eastern Massachusetts, Natick is 15 miles west of Boston. It was originally settled in the mid-1600s by a group of Massachusett Indians called Praying Indians, who were relocated there by British settlers trying to preserve their way of life. In fact, the name Natick comes from that tribe’s language, meaning “place of hills.” Famous citizens include author and abolitionist Harriet Beecher Stowe, Heisman Trophy winning football player Doug Flutie and children’s author Horatio Alger. Natick residents can take care of their legal business at the Natick District Court, which is located in Framingham at 600 Concord Street. It also serves residents of Sherborn.
Attorney Kathleen M. McCarthy is dedicated to protecting her clients’ rights and getting them the best possible outcome for each criminal case. A former prosecutor, she has worked as a criminal defense attorney since 1997 and developed a reputation as a tough, aggressive advocate for her clients. She handles all types of criminal cases, including minor crimes like disorderly conduct, drunk driving or drug possession as well as serious crimes like assault and battery, theft or indecent assault. In many cases, she can handle multiple legal matters stemming from the same incident, such as traffic charges related to a charge of operating under the influence, or restraining orders related to a domestic violence charge. She also handles criminal appeals, which give defendants a chance to overturn a wrongful criminal conviction.
Visitors to the law offices of Kathleen M. McCarthy frequently arrive feeling upset, stressed and uncertain about the future. Criminal charges against you or someone you love can threaten your family, your job and your plans for the future. Kathleen McCarthy understands what her clients are up against, which is why she makes a point of responding quickly to messages from new and existing clients.
