My name is Attorney Matthew Marin (Rhode Island Attorney License Information / Rhode Island Bar Association Membership).  I have dedicated my career to defending those charged with criminal offenses throughout Rhode Island.  If you have been arrested or are under investigation for a criminal offense, we understand that you are likely in an unfamiliar situation which can be extremely intimidating and even paralyzing.  You may feel as if you do not know where to turn or who to ask for help.  Fortunately, you have come to the right place to begin your search for answers and for a successful resolution to your situation.  We have extensive experience assisting thousands of clients facing drunk driving charges, domestic violence charges, and drug charges throughout Rhode Island.

We Represent Regular People
On a daily basis, I meet with Clients who have many of the same concerns you do.  Our clients are regular people.  They include college students and young professionals, landscapers and postal workers, as well as doctors and other lawyers (AND EVEN POLICE OFFICERS).  We employ legal strategies and processes that are designed to reduce your stress and fears by shining a light on legal system and the court process.  Our hope is that we can reduce your stress.  One of the most important ways we can reduce your stress level is by effectively communicating with you and outlining the often complex legal situation you may be facing.  This allows you to make informed and rational decisions regarding your case.

We Help Demystify the Law and Courtroom Process
In addition to demystifying the legal process, we work swiftly, diligently and aggressively in every case we accept.  Out goal is to utilize our skills and experience to achieve the best results for you, as quickly as possible.  Each client we accept receives a roadmap for the future which outlines the court process that lies ahead for him or her.  In addition, we always provide a no-nonsense and realistic opinion regarding the likely and possible outcomes to expect from each case and situation.

Our Client Relationships are Built on a Foundation of Trust and Dedication
The relationship we form with each client is guided by some important foundational principles.  In every case that we accept, dedicate our efforts and resources to instilling these core principles to our work and our client relationships.  We want each and every client to find us to be:


Our Former Client's Are Our Best Advocates
We firmly believe that the best promoters of our track record of achievement, in the areas of trustworthiness, honesty, dedication, hard work, and experience, are our former clients.  We know this is a new experience for you, and that you are afraid to make the wrong choice when selecting the lawyer to represent you.  We ask you to thoughtfully and thoroughly review our online reviews which date back over four years.  Many clients that we meet for the first time are skeptical of the large track record of positive reviews that we have built over the years, but I can assure you that each and every one of our reviews is a result of our dedication to our clients and their case.  I hope that you consider hiring us to assist with your case and allow us the opportunity to provide you with a no obligation case evaluation in which we can discuss how we can help you.

"The notion that most people want black-robed judges, well-dressed lawyers, and fine paneled courtrooms as the setting to resolve their dispute is not correct. People with problems, like people with pains, want relief, and they want it as quickly and inexpensively as possible."

Chief Justice Warren E. Burger
