About Attorney Pomerleau
Attorney Pomerleau has a wealth of successful courtroom experience. A member of the Massachusetts and Maine bars, the Federal District Court of Massachusetts, and the First Circuit Court of Appeals, his practice focuses on all aspects of criminal defense. He also handles many immigration matters, such as deportation defense and appeals in the immigration courts, and in particular, has extensive experience advising noncitizen clients about devastating immigration consequences – such as deportation or denial of citizenship – that may result from current or prior involvement with the criminal justice system. He also has experience representing clients before the US Citizenship and Immigration Services and the National Visa Center regarding obtaining certain immigration benefits, including lawful permanent residence, citizenship, and H-1B visas.
Experience and Qualifications
Attorney Pomerleau has state and federal trial experience, successfully representing clients as lead or co-counsel in obtaining many acquittals on charges such as controlled substances violations, unlawful possession of firearms and ammunition, operating under the influence of alcohol, assault on a federal officer, and insurance fraud. He also has been successful in litigating motions to suppress evidence and dismiss charges. His postconviction results are also impressive. He has won some criminal appeals and briefed and argued several others, and also has won several dozen motions to revise and revoke criminal sentences, to vacate guilty pleas and admissions, and for new trials. Many of these motions saved clients from lifetime deportation. In 2008, he represented as co-counsel a client before the Massachusetts Advisory Board of Pardons, obtaining a unanimous 7-0 recommendation for a pardon – one of the only favorable recommendations in at least the last two decades.
