My name is Bryan Owens, I graduated from Harvard University and criminal defense is my passion. I have been defending individuals charged with state and federal crimes since 2006. I understand and empathize with the stress and feeling of hopelessness that comes with being charged with a crime. I have defended thousands of individuals charged with everything from driving on a suspended license to capital murder. I represent citizens in courts throughout Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
No matter what my client is charged with, my approach to defending a case is the same: I will fight to protect your constitutional rights at every stage. I handle all criminal matters in Massachusetts and Rhode Island. I have extensive experience in state and federal courts. My experience is a long history of fighting for my clients like no one else. I believe in my clients and I will fight for them to beat the charge and to make sure their rights are vindicated. For Bryan Owens it is all about the fight. Prosecutors fight with the weight of the state behind them. They are driven to prosecute. I am driven by my clients and their unique lives. Each has a family and a life to protect. I understand and I empathize. I am on your side. I will fight the prosecution to the end- I am your fearless advocate.
My strategy is to seize the initiative from the start, and never relent. What this means for you is that I will demand the government comply with the rules of criminal procedure and respect your constitutional rights. When the government fails to do so, I will file motions and put the government's non-compliance before a judge. This strategy is what I call aggressive defense. This strategy over the years has proven to keep the government on the defensive and yields extremely favorable results.
I approach each case as if it is going to proceed to trial. This means I investigate the case fully and thoroughly to find all of the errors in the police reports. This is essential to developing our defensive theory. I will visit the alleged crime scene, speak with witnesses, research case law and statutes, file motions and argue the motions to a judge. It is through this process that we develop our theory of the case.
I am a skilled and relentless trial attorney. I have tried dozens of cases to a jury, including several murder cases. I have won Not Guilty verdicts, including Not Guilty in a murder trial where we used a self-defense theory. I will be prepared and ready for war should your case proceed to trial.
Please call me at 617-992-1732 or in Rhode Island 401-374-6149 for a free consultation. You will speak directly with me, not a legal assistant. We will discuss potential defenses to your case and I will describe how we can work together to achieve the best possible outcome in your case.

The 5th Amendment protects us from unreasonable searches and arrests by law enforcement. Bryan Owens uses motions to suppress to protect his clients' 5th Amendment rights.
For some dismissal or a Not Guilty verdict is the best outcome. For others, a continuance without finding(CWOF) or pretrial diversion may be the proper outcome.
Criminal cases often begin in the district court. Bryan Owens is an expert at the use of "show cause" hearings to prevent a criminal case from being filed against you.
