Attorney Lown wins Green Card for young couple

July 18, 2019

The green card processing time on this case was unusually fast. The spouse initially came here to study. She later fell in love with a young man who she met through friends at Grad School in Boston. The spouse was approved for conditional permanent residency in a matter of just five months. (Go to Green Card Through Marriage.)

Suppression victory limits police intrusion

July 02, 2019

Attorney Lown’s motion to suppress win in Boston’s downtown district court underscored an important fact: police officers do not have authority to stop and frisk someone merely because they seem “suspicious.” In this case, Attorney Lown cross-examined four officers at a 4-hour hearing. Ultimately, Judge Cathleen Byrne ruled that the officers crossed a line. She found that the officers lacked sufficient justification to search Lown’s client and that the Constitution demanded that the evidence be suppressed.  

Attorney Lown convinces DA to drop “reckless driving” charge

May 31, 2019

“The police treated my client like a criminal for having gotten into an accident,” Attorney Lown said. Even though the officer did not witness the accident he decided to charge the client with reckless operation of a motor vehicle to endanger lives.  “But the prosecutor was very thoughtful and open to what I had to say,” Lown added, referring to an assistant district attorney in the Chelsea District Court. Ultimately, Attorney Lown prevailed and was able to show the DA that this was an accident, not a crime. The DA agreed to drop the charges.

In The News:

Dismissing cases outright would help defendants avoid the stigma of a criminal record, Lown said. "It's impossible to get a job with a criminal record...or get an apartment or a place to live. It's a moral issue," Lown said
