Extensive Trial Experience On Both Sides Of The Courtroom

I am defense attorney Shane W. Surrette. I was born and raised in Worcester County and have been practicing law since 2003. Upon graduating cum laude from the New England School of Law in Boston in the top 7.5% of my class, I worked at the Middle District Attorney’s office and prosecuted criminal cases for several years in the District, Juvenile and Superior Courts.

I draw from this extensive courtroom experience to protect your rights to justice and due process. I have successfully handled thousands of criminal cases and have tried several hundred jury trials. My track record includes dismissal of charges, acquittals, no guilty jury verdicts, reduction of charges and penalties, alternative sentencing and probation. While I cannot guarantee the outcome of your case, no criminal defense attorney can – I do guarantee I will fight to safeguard your best interests in the battle.

The Best Defense/Trial Attorney

“I hired attorney Surrette after finding out about him through a few friends and another attorney. Really good guy, got me the best results on my case, and took the time to explain the details to me.”
– Anonymous

Great Decision

“Shane was recommended by a mutual friend and I am happy I took that recommendation. My vehicle was wrongly identified as being involved in a hit and run accident. I made matters worse by sending the summons to the wrong location and missed the date to request a hearing and instead receiving a summons to criminal court. I consulted with Shane, where he explained everything that had gone on to that point, and what could happen at the hearing.”
– Dana

Great Experience

“I retained Mr. Surrette a few months back. So far, he has been straight with me, doesn’t lie and over promise results to me, and he is aggressive in getting me what I want.”
