Kevin J. Mahoney
Boston Drug Crimes Lawyer
Kevin J. Mahoney is a Cambridge lawyer with a national reputation for successfully representing high-profile clients and for his trial victories, bestselling book on cross-examination, “Relentless Criminal Cross-Examination,” novel insights into trial strategy, and for serving as an on-air legal analyst for Fox News Live, Fox and Friends, CNN, Nancy Grace, and Court TV. He received his first nationwide media coverage after overturning the 1st-degree murder conviction of Christina Martin, dubbed the “JELL-O Murderer” by the national press. Forensic Files’ documentary, “A Dessert Served Cold,” chronicled Attorney Mahoney’s seven year odyssey to free Ms. Martin.
Attorney Mahoney has won 44 of his last 47 trials. Since 2007, the prestigious National Trial Lawyers has consistently identified him as one of “The Top 100 Trial Lawyers.” Avvo, the national attorney rating service, rates Attorney Mahoney a 10.0/10.0 for “superb.” He has been an impassioned advocate for discontinuing the senseless, brutal, and counterproductive “War on Drugs.” This war is unwinnable, has dramatically increased our prison population, and trampled on our constitutional rights. Preventing this war from victimizing Massachusetts citizens accused drug offenses is one of the most important aspects of his life’s work.
As an assistant district attorney for the Middlesex County District Attorney’s Office from 1991 to 1993, he tried dozens of cases in the District Courts and represented the Commonwealth before the Appeals Court and the Supreme Judicial Court on appeals from murder, drug trafficking, and rape convictions.

His 1989 article, United States v. Stanley, Has the Feres Doctrine Become a Grant of Absolute Immunity?, 23 New Eng. L. Rev. 767 (1989) was chosen as the best student article. In 1988, he won the American Jurisprudence Award for Clinical Evidence for the highest grade earned in an advanced trial practice course.
