ABOUT ME

ATTORNEY MICHAEL ERLICH

My interest in criminal law began while attending University of Miami School of Law. During my second year, I was able to secure an internship with the State Attorney’s Office as a student prosecutor. I worked under Janet Reno, who later became our United States Attorney General. Over the last 25 years I have been representing individuals throughout the Commonwealth with compassion, professionalism and the understanding that your case is all that matters. I am one of the few attorneys in Worcester County that devotes their entire practice to criminal defense and I have built a reputation based on results and dedication to my practice. In 2003 I was voted Massachusetts Lawyer of the Year.

Please take a moment and review my web site. I designed it with a specific focus on prior client reviews as well as recent case summaries to reflect the types of cases handle. I believe this approach gives you an inside look at my law practice which will ultimately make you feel comfortable in choosing me to represent you. AVVO, a leading independent legal web site, has given me a superb rating of 10/10. This rating is calculated using a mathematical model that considers elements such as years of experience, board certification, education, lack of disciplinary history, professional achievement, and industry recognition. I represent individuals at all stages of a criminal investigation or prosecution. I have successfully tried many high-profile cases and jury trials. My cases have involved complicated charges and indictments for murder, insurance fraud, drug trafficking, sexual assault, kidnapping, as well as the more common OUI’s and domestic assault & batteries. I have persuaded prosecutors to dismiss charges, convinced judges to reduce sentences and have won significant numbers of acquittals at trial.

In my Criminal practice, I am available 24 hours a day and will see you on weekends if need be. More importantly, I will do my best to reply to a call, text or email as soon as possible. I was guided by these same principles when choosing the lawyers who are affiliated in my network.
