On the front page of the news, in personal recommendations, or in professional circles, our message is clear.
Our cases are frequently reported upon and followed by major news outlets. Many lawyers fail to grasp the power the media has on the optics of a case. The government will seek to sensationalize the case, inflame public outrage, and
imprint their theories on the public consciousness. Not only do these tactics stain the reputation of those who the law presumes innocent, they carry the potential to seep into the minds of jurors who will later hear the matter. Our firm will deny the government this advantage by taking control of the narrative, highlighting the weaknesses in the government's case, and refocusing the public's attention on the presumption of innocence and the side of the story yet to be told.

One of the greatest tests of a lawyer's professional reputation is how they stack up in the eyes of other lawyers. In 2020 and 2021, Attorney Erkan was rated "AV-Preeminent" on Martindale Hubbell, the most trusted peer review authority in the legal community. This is the highest rating available, and an honor reserved for the top 10% of attorneys in the country who have distinguished themselves for their high ethical standing.
In 2021, I was featured on "Super Lawyers," as having "attained a high degree of peer recognition and personal achievement" as a criminal defense lawyer. That same year, I was recognized as a top 100 criminal defense attorney by the National Trial Lawyers.
I am on the board of directors for the Massachusetts Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and the Criminal Justice Council of the Massachusetts Bar Association.
