2021 Case results

While the criminal justice system in 2021 has been extremely backed up due to the covid- 19 pandemic, and most of our cases have been either been put on pause or are otherwise delayed, we have still been able to successfully resolve cases for our clients that did not require jury trials and were resolvable during these difficult times: 

April 16, 2021
Quincy District Court
DEFENDING AGAINST 209A: The plaintiff, our client's roommate, applied for a 209A against our client. The plaintiff alleged that our client was physically abusive, even strangling her on one occasion. The plaintiff provided documents, videos, and pictures to the court. We aggressively cross- examined the plaintiff, who came in to the proceeding "pro se" (without an attorney), and we tore apart her accusations and story. 
RESULT: The court found that the plaintiff did not have grounds for a 209A order, and denied the plaintiff's application for one. 

April 7, 2021
Brockton District Court
APPLICATION FOR 209A: We applied for a restraining order for our client and minor children against the defendant, her ex- husband children's father. We presented testimonial evidence that was highly contested by the defendant and his attorney. 
RESULT: The court granted our application and issued the 209A restraining order on behalf of our client and her children. 

April 2, 2021
Barnstable Superior Court
CHARGES/ INDICTMENTS: Our client was indicted on charges of assault with intent to murder, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon causing serious bodily injury, assault and battery on a family/ household member, 2 counts of witness intimidation, and tampering with evidence. The district attorney's office moved to have our client held without bail pending trial as a dangerous person under M.G.L. c. 276 s. 58A. 
RESULT: After a 3 hour hearing, the court declined to hold our client without bail. He was released on $1,000 bail and ordered to stay away from the alleged victim, and remain alcohol- free. We will vigorously defend him up to and including trial. 

March 5, 2021
Natick District Court
CLERK MAGISTRATE'S HEARING: Our client was charged with larceny over $1200 (felony) after being stopped outside of the Macy's in Natick with a carriage full of items that were not paid for. 
RESULT: After a hearing, the clerk declined to issue a criminal complaint, and no record of this matter now exists. 

February 18, 2021
Quincy District Court
CLERK MAGISTRATE'S HEARING: The Quincy Police Department applied for a criminal complaint against our two clients for breaking and entering (felony) and trespassing. 
RESULT: After an evidentiary hearing, we convinced the clerk that there was no intent to commit a crime. The clerk then declined to issue any criminal complaint, and no record of this matter now exists. 

January 28, 2021 
Boston Municipal Court- East Boston
CHARGES: Possession of Class B (cocaine), Operating without a License. 
RESULT: Both charges dismissed. 
Client Reviews

"Ben Urbelis recently represented me in an OUI case in which I had crashed my car. I honestly did not believe I had any chance of beating it, but fortunately for me Ben was outstanding and all charges were dropped. In my first hearing he was calm, assertive and straight to the point. I was extremely impressed and satisfied. I left my hearing feeling confident that I had made the right choice of hiring him. I am positive I would have lost this case and walked away with an OUI if I hadn't. I am very happy with how he handled my case and how reassured I felt having him as my lawyer." MC
