Trusted Criminal Defense Attorneys in Great Barrington, Massachusetts

At O’Brien & Eggleston PLLC, our law firm’s founders have more than four decades of combined experience on both sides of criminal courtrooms, accounting for over 200 trials between them.

As we expand to the neighboring state of Massachusetts, we welcome criminal defense lawyer Alex Shmulsky to the firm to lend his 14 years of legal experience to defense clients who need his expertise in Great Barrington. 

Although just over 7000 people call Great Barrington home, we believe each resident deserves equal access to skilled criminal defense representation as others in much larger cities can easily attain. The reality is, no matter how large or small the town or clients live in, facing legal challenges is a stressful experience that places lives on hold until a solution is in place.

Our Berkshire County criminal defense office allows Alex to align his local legal knowledge, skills, and resources to expand our law firm’s priority, which is to create positive outcomes that align with our client’s goals so everyone understands the reality of their legal challenges and how we can help them.
