Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly Reports on Attorney Barabino’s Landmark Case

Attorney Barabino’s historic work on this landmark case has changed the rules on criminal process and procedure in the Commonwealth. The development was so substantial that Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly wrote an article on the feat, which you can read here.
