Experience Matters

     Attorney Sandell has handled over 2,000 criminal cases in District Courts across the Commonwealth of Massachusetts over the past fifteen years.

    Whether your case involves an allegation of operating a motor vehicle while under the influence [OUI/DWI], an allegation of domestic violence, or any issue surrounding controlled substance possession or distribution, Attorney Sandell has dedicated over a decade and a half of time and energy into understanding these issues. Over his career, Dan has developed strategies to work towards the best possible disposition of these matters in courts across the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. 

    In addition to years of experience and a high level of legal skill, Dan can explain complicated legal concepts to clients in terms that can be easily understood.

     Very few law firms, let alone a single attorney possess this level of experience. Attorney Sandell has tried more than fifty cases, has argued complicated motions and has on more than one occasion made arguments for his clients in the Appellate Court.


  Attorney Sandell regularly appears on behalf of clients in Hampshire, Hampden, Franklin and Worcester Counties many days per week and is very familiar with the Judges and Assistant District Attorney’s who regularly sit and practice with those courts.

    The Goal at our Amherst office is dedicated to providing top of the line legal services at reasonable rates for individuals facing difficult challenges, college students, and working families. With our flat fee criminal representation program, there are no hidden costs, and Dan will  answer all of your questions before you are presented with a fee agreement. At our office Dan will personally handle your matter and you will never be referred out to a junior associate that does not have extensive trial experience.

      It's easy for attorney Sandell or any other attorney for that  to throw up a website and claim you have years of experience without backing it up. I understand that most people viewing this site are probably not familiar personally with Dan Sandell or the successful work he has done for thousands of people in Western Massachusetts. 
      To help aid you in determining which attorney is experienced enough to handle your legal matter, I have provided below a list of common questions (and answers) you may want to ask your attorney before you retain them. 
   I have also provided a list of most of the common crimes that occur in District courts in Massachusetts and I indicate whether or not I have represented someone on that type of case before. I have also provided whether or not I have defended an individual during a trial on that charge.  The information contained in here was drafted in May of 2019 and is subject to change in the future. Please click on the links below to view an extensive table of the types of matters Attorney Sandell has handled in the past.
