Lown beats back false accusations at restraining order hearing in Chelsea District Court

December 02, 2019

October 03, 2019

By a Lown Law Firm client and friend:

"I had Zachary Lown as my criminal defense attorney on a domestic case. This was in Boston. Unfortunately, our child’s mother was attempting to have me wrongly convicted of a crime.

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.

May 31, 2019

Quick Not Guilty Verdict for OUI Client

August 09, 2018

A Dorchester jury deliberated today for barely 10 minutes before coming back "Not Guilty" for Attorney Lown's wrongly-accused OUI client. "The officer tried to change his story to make our client look bad, but we had him on the stand and we had him read out loud to the jury from the transcript of his testimony at a prior hearing.
