2003 Appearance on The O’Reilly Factor
The Massachusetts State Police Challenged on Racial Profiling
Attorney Erlich’s appearance on the O’Reilly factor in 2003, came on the heels of a Superior Court Judge in Worcester allowing the first Motion to Suppress in Massachusetts based on the State Police racially profiling.
Although the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court reversed the decision, it ultimately paved the way for future cases based on my theory. It ruled that statistical evidence may be used to meet a defendant’s initial burden of producing sufficient evidence to raise a reasonable inference of impermissible discrimination and that the exclusionary rule can be used where a stop is based on racial profiling.

A conviction for selling drugs can have harsh consequences on not only your liberty but also your right to operate a motor vehicle.

A driver speeding 15 miles per hour over the speed limit will receive a $155 fine. And for most drivers, the ticket itself is only the first cost associated with speeding—they often face insurance increases as well. On average, Boston area drivers pay $259.96 more per year in premiums after receiving a speeding ticket. In Massachusetts, speeding tickets stay on drivers’ records for six years and insurers penalize drivers as long as there the infraction is on their records, which means that Boston-area drivers end up paying $1,559.75 total in increased premiums. Tack on the cost of the ticket, and that comes to a whopping $1,714.75. Worcester is just a shade below.
Every citizen of the state of Massachusetts has the right granted to them by the 2nd Amendment of The Constitution to keep and bear arms. If you have a clean mental health and criminal history there is no reason for any citizen in Massachusetts to be denied these given rights.

Mike was great from the get go. He was able to represent me on a short term notice. One I was able to get to know mike you could tell he genuinely care about me as a client and as a human being that was wrongfully accused. He fought hard for me and was eventually able to get my case dismissed after 7 months of a continuous legal battle.

Attorney Erlich immediately made himself available when I contacted him for help with a family crisis. He understood the urgency of the situation and met with the family on Mother’s Day. He always took the time to answer my questions and concerns. The outcome was favorable and the family will forever be grateful for his excellent service.
