James Budreau is a partner at Bassil, Klovee & Budreau and manages BK&B's criminal litigation group along with Janice Bassil. They specialize in complex criminal trials, appeals and related civil litigation throughout Massachusetts and the Northeast. We also have a full family law practice that represents high networth clients and a general civil litigation group that focuses on tort, business and employment law issues including discriminatory practices by employers.
Individually, Mr. Budreau and Ms. Bassil are considered to be top litigators in the criminal field. As a team, they are considered to be formidable adversaries that provide clients' with the best possible representation in any criminal case or appeal including the follwing areas:
James Budreau, who taught at Harvard Law School, was recently recognized by Martindale Hubbell as a premier white collar defense litigator. He has been trying and winning complex criminal and civil cases for the last twenty years including an acquittal in federal court for a business man accused of related felonies, two separate homicide cases for the same client, a television producer accused of drug distribution and the appeal for a juvenile that precluded life without parole in a first degree murder conviction. Mr. Budreau also represents clients in civil related matters including forfeiture matters, employment cases and tort defense.
Janice Bassil, who has trying criminal cases for thirty years, has successfully defended many high profile clients including an Olympian's brother accused of manslaughter and a lawyer accused of two separate rapes. Ms. Bassil, who defended John Salvi, often specializes in mental health defenses and successfully defended a woman, who was accused of killing her children, using a NGI defense. Ms. Bassil also represents clients involved in high networth diviorces and custody cases.
While the BK&B team has litigated some of the largest and highest profile cases in federal court over the last decade including the Mehanna terrorism castriale and the James Bulger organized crime case, our clients always come first whether they are charged with an OUI in state court or bank fraud in federal court.
