Massachusetts Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers

Originally called the Massachusetts Criminal Defense Lawyers Association, the Massachusetts Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (MACDL) is a bar association comprised primarily of criminal defense lawyers that are licensed to practice in the Commonwealth. Membership to the Massachusetts Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers is open to lawyers and non-lawyers alike, but non-lawyers may join only if their work is closely related to criminal defense. The Massachusetts Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers’ membership is limited in this meaner because the main purpose of the Massachusetts Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers is to aid criminal defense attorneys working in Massachusetts in their practice, meaning that the Massachusetts Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers would not be beneficial to anyone that is not heavily involved with criminal defense legal representation in Massachusetts.

LegalMatch operates a valuable online service that connect Massachusetts residents with highly qualified local attorneys. An entirely free service, LegalMatch allows potential clients to post cases online for review by attorneys in the LegalMatch system. Prior to selecting an attorney, potential clients are able to review detailed attorney profiles and past client reviews.

The Massachusetts Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers strives to provide helpful resources to its members and their practices. One very important way that the MACDL provides aid to its members is through the Strike Force, which is a service that provides emergency help, such as a substitute presence in a courtroom at short notice or emergency legal advice, to Massachusetts Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers members.

Members of the Massachusetts Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers also file several amicus briefs every year at the request of their fellow members, who may ask the Massachusetts Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers to request that its members file amicus briefs at any time during the appellate process of their cases. There are also several helpful practice guides available to members for free on the Massachusetts Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers’ website.
