Waltham was one of the earliest centers of the Industrial Revolution in Massachusetts. In the nineteenth century, it was home to the Boston Manufacturing Company, the first textile mill in the United States. In the twentieth century, it became the home to the Waltham Watch Company and the watchmaking industry, giving rise to the nickname “Watch City.” It is also the home of Brandeis University and Bentley University, which help make Waltham a “walkable” city and enhance its cultural offerings. Waltham has its own district court, the Waltham District Court at 38 Linden Street. This courthouse also serves the communities of Watertown and Weston.
Attorney Kathleen M. McCarthy is dedicated to protecting her clients’ rights and getting them the best possible outcome for each criminal case.
