Ambar Maceo is a Dominican attorney and the founder of Maceo Law, PC, a Massachusetts-based law firm specializing in criminal defense. She’s made it her personal mission to help bridge the gap between the criminal justice system and the people it serves, and to elevate the voices of underrepresented communities. Prior to immigrating to the United States, almost 10 years ago, Ambar’s experience ranged from civil litigation, employment and labor claims, to criminal fraud & abuse claims and white-collar crimes. Once in the U.S., she represented Latinx clients who had been injured on the job while also helping them connect with community services and resources. Her current practice is focused primarily on criminal defense to include generally violent crimes, drug crimes, theft and/or property crimes, OUI/drunk driving and motor vehicle offenses, and public order offenses. She remains passionate and committed to represent the Latinx community and to help them thrive in all aspects of their lives. She speaks Spanish, English, Portuguese and French (though might need a refresher on the latter).
