Westwood, Massachusetts Criminal Defense Lawyer

If you're not sure that the town of Westwood, Massachusetts is one of the loveliest towns in New England, listen to this: In July 2005, CNN/Money and Money magazine ranked Westwood Number 13 on its list of the "100 Best Places to Live in the United States." Also, Boston Magazine once named Westwood's Gay Street as one of the "Best Streets" in the Boston area. Currently, Westwood is the 20th wealthiest town in Massachusetts.

Westwood is home to Xaverian Brothers High School, a Catholic prep school for boys.

Until 2005, Westwood was a dry town. Today, restaurants can apply for liquor licenses.

Westwood is home to the famous Hale Reservation, an area of open space donated by Robert Sever Hale. Hale Reservation spans more than 1,200 acres in Westwood and Dover, preserved and maintained as pristine conservation land by a private trust.

One of Westwood's most famous resident was the late trial lawyer Barry Reed, who was also an acclaimed author. In 1980, Reed wrote the bestselling courtroom drama The Verdict. Reed's book centered on a down-on-his-luck lawyer who tries a malpractice case against two prominent doctors; their negligence caused a pregnant woman to go into a coma. The Verdict has been translated into a dozen languages and was made into a 1982 film starring Paul Newman and James Mason. The film was nominated for five Academy Awards including Best Picture and Best Actor.

If you had an argument with a loved one in a public place and someone were to needlessly call the police, you can be almost sure that an arrest is going to be made for domestic violence or assault and battery. You could have a single alcoholic drink, drive your car, and get stopped by police because you forgot to use your turn, and a police officer could stop you. If the officer who stopped you detects alcohol on your breath, you will probably be arrested on OUI/DUI charges.

    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.
