Newton, Massachusetts

Newton, Massachusetts Criminal Defense Lawyer

The City of Newton is located in Middlesex County. It was settled in 1630. Newton was incorporated as a separate town, known as Cambridge Village, in 1688. It was renamed Newtown in 1691, and finally, in1766, Newton. It became a city in 1873. Newton is known as “The Garden City.”

Newton historian Diana Muir described the early industries that developed here in the late 18th and 19th centuries – they were a series of mills that were built to take advantage of the water power available. Snuff, chocolate, paper, glue and other products were produced in these small mills but water power available in Newton was not sufficient to turn Newton into a manufacturing city. In 1902, Newton became home to the Stanley Motor Carriage Company, the maker of the famous Stanley Steamer.

It’s not hard to imagine the following: You’re out at a restaurant in Newton, you have a couple of drinks over perhaps 90 minutes, and you do not feel intoxicated. Everything seems under control.

Partial List of Client Reviews
When I was arrested for DUI, I was absolutely terrified. Had it not been for you, I might have been convicted of something I was not at all guilty of. My work life, my family life, my reputation, all could have been destroyed. You stood by me like the legal version of a bodyguard - and because of you, I was found not guilty.
When we got the call that our son had been arrested and charged with rape, we almost fainted. We know our son. He is not violent; he has never abused anyone, let alone another girl… If not for you and your "take no prisoners" attitude, our son might have been convicted of a crime that would have sent him to state prison. As far as we're concerned, our son owes you his life, and we owe you the world. We will never forget you.
I hired Mr. William D. Kickham for a very important legal issue and I was extremely satisfied by the results. His in depth knowledge about the matter and his intelligent thinking was extremely beneficial. He is really an expert. He was also very supportive and sensitive towards my concerns. It was great to have a lawyer of his capacity. Thanks William for all the Help.
Atty. Kickham defended me on a charge of raping my girlfriend, who made up the whole story out of revenge because I was interested in someone else. If it weren’t for Attorney Kickham proving me innocent, God knows what might have happened to me.
Mr. Kickham represented me on a trumped-up charge of domestic violence. The prosecutor and police wouldn’t back down, even after my spouse told them it was all untrue. They insisted on taking me to trial, and Mr. Kickham never wavered. He was my legal bodyguard, and I was found not guilty.
Of the many talents Atty. Kickham has, two are these: 1) He is ten times as persuasive as the best lawyer you’ve seen in the movies; and 2) Nothing - but nothing - gets by him. The police arrested me on completely false drug charges, and after a heated courtroom battle, Atty. Kickham won the day. Trust me, it was no surprise.
Because I mildly disciplined my child for throwing a tantrum, I was actually charged with child abuse. It was horrifying. Atty. Kickham fought for me tooth and nail, until I was declared not guilty. One hell of a lawyer.
I complimented a co-worker on her looks and patted her on the back as I did so. Two hours later, the police showed up and accused me of indecent assault & battery. From the day I hired him, Atty. Kickham fought the DA’s office until the charges were dropped. If not for him, my life would have been ruined.
