About David Singer

I’m a criminal defense attorney in the state courts of Massachusetts.

I practice in Massachusetts District and Superior Courts and have developed excellent relationships with judges, other attorneys (including opposing counsel and prosecutors,) probation officers and clerk staff. I have won many cases and negotiated favorable settlements for clients charged with a wide range of criminal offenses in Massachusetts courts. I am an active member of the Massachusetts Bar Association, the Boston Bar Association, the Greater Lowell Bar Association, and the National College For DUI Defense (http://www.ncdd.com).




My goal: you are treated fairly
Being charged with a crime is a difficult ordeal. You deserve to be treated with respect and compassion. Above all, your rights should be protected – that is why our court system was developed. I have committed my life to becoming an expert on our courts and legal systems to ensure that I can help my clients’ get a fair trial and their interests are fully represented.

Listen first
To be an effective advocate for you, I believe my first job is to listen. I take the time to find out who my clients are and what is going on in their lives. By fully understanding your situation – your health, your job, your family, your personal struggles – I can most effectively craft an effective defense for you.

A wide range of clients
My clients come from every walk of life, from blue-collar workers to academics to executives. My philosophy is to live the golden rule and to treat everyone with the respect I would like to receive myself.


21st Century Communication for Criminal Defense
I always have a smart phone and laptop available so I am exceptionally accessible to you. I have also set up a secure cloud server so that I have access to your documents wherever I am. I frequently hear complaints that attorneys are slow to respond to their clients’ needs and don’t return phone calls and emails promptly. With today’s communications tools, this problem should no longer be an issue. As basic as it seems, you can’t take for granted that your attorney uses up-to-date technology. I encourage you to discuss this essential matter with any attorney you consider engaging. Read more about how I use technology

Committed to making our communities better
Criminal defense law is a second career for me. Prior to becoming an attorney, I worked at social services agencies where I focused on homelessness prevention, affordable housing and mental health and substance abuse services.

In my personal life
I live in Chelmsford with my wife and teenage daughter. My hobbies include bicycling and antique cars. I am a Vietnam-era veteran of the U.S. Navy.
