Steven J. Topazio



Steven J. Topazio, With more than 25 years of trial experience in the area of criminal law, Attorney Topazio has become a well-qualified criminal defense lawyer whose professional skills have become equally suited to the resolution of both criminal as well as personal injury law. Though felony or misdemeanor defense and negligence litigation involve entirely different legal principles and procedural rules, there are many parallels between them that tap into the same skill set and client service values that Attorney Topazio has developed. Both involve the protection of individual rights against powerful institutions — government prosecutors and insurance companies and both often depend on your lawyer’s skill with handling evidence — facts relating to guilt or innocence in the former, and facts relating to liability and damages in the latter. Boston Criminal Lawyer Steven J. Topazio has adopted a tough and aggressive approach to solving cases which delivers the highest legal representation you can obtain anywhere in Massachusetts.
