For Parents - Parent Information

     No parent is ever thrilled getting the phone call from their son or daughter telling them that they have been arrested. Although you may not be thrilled with your child after you hang up the phone, you likely want to make sure that they are treated fairly by the criminal justice system and the Dean of Students office. Contacting an attorney as soon as possible can help ensure that your child may be able to preserve their criminal record or point out defenses to the alleged misconduct.


     Whether your child is charged with Operating under the influence of alcohol or OUI, a controlled substance offense, an assault and battery, or a crime of domestic violence, you can rest assured knowing that your child's case is being handled by attorney Sandell. Attorney Sandell has resolved roughly two thousand cases in District Courts across the Commonwealth, with many of those cases involving college aged students at local colleges in Western Massachusetts. As someone who has seen numerous cases stemming from riots on college campuses, cases stemming from all sorts of alcohol induced behavior at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, and Long term drug investigations that lead to students going to court, there is very little that attorney Sandell has not seen throughout his fifteen years in Western Massachusetts.
