Worcester Murder Defense Lawyer

Are you being investigated or charged with any type of homicide crime? Obviously, the penalties for murder charges are very severe and it is in your best interest to seek out skilled criminal counsel as soon as you become aware of the charges.

Worcester murder defense attorney Daniel W. Cronin is a longstanding, widely respected presence in the courts throughout Worcester County and Middlesex County, Massachusetts. As a law student clerking for a New Orleans firm in 1984, Dan worked on the death row appeal of a first degree convicted murderer who was executed at Angola State Prison. As an assistant district attorney in Worcester County from 1986-1990, Dan served as a lead prosecutor of motor vehicle homicides in the District and Superior Courts of the Commonwealth. Dan then went on to serve as a special prosecutor for the Worcester County District Attorney’s Office from 1990 to 2009, presenting cases before grand juries and juries in the District and Superior Courts. Dan has prosecuted and defended homicide cases in Worcester County since 1986 and is well versed in forensic science and expert testimony necessary to defend charges of murder. In a 2012 jury waived trial on charges of attempted murder, Attorney Cronin successfully raised the insanity defense, and the client was found not guilty by reason of insanity or mental illness.

Using this experience, Dan’s persistent and aggressive approach has garnered a record of proven success in criminal defense and civil litigation since he entered into private practice in 1990.
