Criminal Defense Lawyer Lefteris K. Travayiakis has a wealth of experience defending persons charged with a wide variety of criminal offenses in Massachusetts - from simple misdemeanors, such as simple assault & battery, to major felony crimes, such as rape and murder.  He has successfully represented persons in the district and superior courts all over the Commonwealth of Massachusetts; and has also handled appeals and post-conviction matter before the Massachusetts Appeals Court and Supreme Judicial Court.

His practice is focused exclusively on criminal defense of major felony crimes, including homicide / murder and related crimes of violence; rape and other sex crimes; gun crimes; drug crimes; as well as OUI / DUI.

As a criminal defense lawyer, Attorney Lefteris K. Travayiakis has earned the reputation as an aggressive and meticulously prepared advocate, fighting for his clients at every stage of the criminal proceedings.  Although he has had tremendous success in obtaining acquittals at trial, he also has a strong record of success in the pre-trial stage: from litigating pre-trial motions resulting in the exclusion of evidence to reduction or even dismissal of criminal charges altogether.  In some circumstances, cases can be won or favorably disposed on behalf of the client by smart and aggressive pre-trial motions.  Attorney Travayiakis commits to a thorough review of the allegations that might give rise to litigating a motion to suppress evidence or a motion to dismiss.  In cases where there may not be such dispositive motions to be litigated pre-trial, Attorney Travayiakis has a well established record of acquittals at trial, even in those cases where the prospect of an acquittal seemed unrealistic.  See Case Results.

For his courtroom successes, Attorney Travayiakis was recognized by Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly in 2010 and was highlighted in its Excellence in the Law Edition as one of Top 20 Up & Coming Lawyers and a "Rising Star".  Despite his peers and the legal community recognizing his dedication and commitment to his clients, Attorney Travayiakis has consistently striven to raise the bar and provide the highest possible quality representation with each individual case he takes on.  No matter the case, whether small or complex, simple or 'high stakes', he recognizes that any time a client is charged with a crime it is always 'high stakes' for the client and it is treated with the utmost importance and priority.

His commitment to excellence, courtroom advocacy, preparation and dedication to always be the best lawyer in the courtroom has enabled him to consistently obtain positive results for his clients.  He understands that the law is constantly changing and is committed to knowing and understanding the latest developments and changes in the law, as well as refining his trial skills by participating in and teaching trial advocacy courses or seminars.  This commitment to excellence has earned him high regards by his colleagues, prosecutors and judges.
