Law Firm Overview

My name is Matt Marin. My law firm, the Law Offices of Matthew T. Marin, Esq., Inc. is a Rhode Island criminal defense law firm dedicated to defending and protecting the rights of Rhode Island residents who have been charged with a crime. I've argued cases in every county and court throughout the state of Rhode Island, and I've handled all manner of charges, including misdemeanors, felonies, and traffic offenses.

My offices are conveniently located in downtown Providence and Newport. If you or a loved one is being investigated or facing criminal charges, call me today. I am available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The call is free and the initial consultation is free. Any criminal charge is a serious matter that should not be taken lightly. Serious charges require a serious defense.

I take my job as criminal defense attorney very seriously, and work relentlessly to achieve the very best result for my clients in and out of court. I strongly believe that a well-planned defense strategy and the assistance of an experienced and skillful criminal defense attorney can make all the difference between a criminal conviction - and a verdict of “not guilty.”

Rhode Island penalties for driving under the influence (DUI) are very severe and can have a lasting impact on your life. If you have been arrested for DUI, or a related alcohol offense, you may be facing jail time, large fines, loss of driving privileges, and expensive driver’s license fees.

He will do everything possible to have your case dismissed, reduced, or found not guilty, and also protect your Rhode Island driver’s license.

- Expungement

Rhode Island law sets out a procedure for an individual to expunge a record of conviction for a felony or misdemeanor. Under the Rhode Island Expungement Law, an individual may have the right to expunge all court records, all records in the possession of any state or local police department, the bureau of criminal identification and the probation department, including, but not limited to, any fingerprints, photographs, physical measurements, or other records of identification.

This means that we can defend your case at the Rhode Island Traffic Tribunal without the need for you to appear in court.

- Appellate Cases

Our firm is prepared to represent each client through all stages of criminal proceedings, including appeals and post-conviction proceedings. Part of the appellate process is to first determine whether an appeal is in the best interest of the client. Typically, that entails reviewing the court file, speaking with the client and his or her trial counsel, and reviewing the court transcripts. Once the preliminary review is complete, and the client has decided to move forward with an appeal, our attorneys mount a zealous appeal of the criminal conviction. While the appellate process can be lengthy, our attorneys are dedicated to keeping our clients educated and informed at every step.

- Family Law

The Law Offices of Matthew T. Marin, Esq., Inc. is committed to providing the highest level of service to our clients. We advise clients regarding all the legal matters that arise when a marriage is dissolved, including: custody, property distribution, child support and spousal support (alimony). We’re not going to lie to you: divorce is stressful. But selecting a divorce lawyer should not be. You want a lawyer who will fight when appropriate, negotiate when appropriate, and know which circumstances require which approach. We strive to settle divorce matters without going to trial, as that often protects our clients from undue stress and can save our clients time and money. We recognize, however, that mediation and negotiation are not always successful. As a result, we thoroughly prepare every case for trial if it becomes necessary.

- Car Accidents

We work with each client to help them decide the best course of action for their accident injury.

Hiring an experienced domestic violence lawyer can help you stay out of jail, protect your criminal record, and save you thousands of dollars, keep you off of probation, avoid fines, court costs, and classes.
