He has won over one hundred acquittals for clients charged with all ranges of cases, from misdemeanors to major felonies. He has won dismissals in hundreds of other cases. There is hardly a crime that can be charged that he has not won at some point in his career: murder, robbery, rape, fraud, theft, drug trafficking, illegal firearms, assaults and batteries.

Attorney Scully graduated cum laude from Suffolk University Law School, in Boston, MA in 1997. Suffolk Law is known for producing trial lawyers and Attorney Scully stood out in his class. He was invited to write and edit for the school’s prestigious Law Review and published several articles on Criminal Law: Discovery in Selective Prosecution Cases, and Criminal Trade Secret Violations. His success in the classroom back then is the foundation for his success in the courtroom now.

After graduating from Suffolk Law, Attorney Scully was one of a small and hand-picked group of young lawyers who clerked for the Justices of the Massachusetts Superior Court. As a Law Clerk, he assisted Justices throughout the state as they adjudicated criminal cases. After completing his Clerkship he worked for one year as a Superior Court Trial Attorney for the Committee for Public Counsel Services.  He has spent the balance of his career in private practice as a trial attorney concentrating in criminal defense.
