Joseph Fricano


     I began studying the criminal justice system as an undergraduate while attending St. Anselm's College. I graduated with honors in 1995, and I worked the summer of 1995 as a part-time Police Officer in York, Maine. During the fall of 1995, I joined the United States Marine Corps.

     While I was serving in the Marine Corps as a Lieutenant, I obtained my first full-time law enforcement experience as a Military Police Officer (MP) at Camp Pendleton, California. After completing my service in the Marine Corps, I joined the Nashua Police Department during the spring of 1999.

     While I was working full-time as a Nashua Police Officer, I earned my law degree from the Massachusetts School of Law with honors, and I began my career as a Prosecutor in 2006. I successfully prosecuted hundreds of cases while working at the Rochester Police Department and the Hillsborough County Attorney's Office.

     During the spring of 2011, I established a solo private practice that is dedicated to serving individuals who find themselves in the grips of the criminal justice system.

     As a private attorney, I take pride in my courtroom skills, my professional integrity, and my commitment to obtain the best result possible.

     During my professional career, I have established a consistent history of excellence. A few career highlights include the following:

  1. Captain Martin Murphy Award—for obtaining the highest grade point average in my major at St Anselm's College;
  2. Graduated Magna Cum Laude from St Anselm's College;
  3. Navy Achievement Medal—for outstanding leadership skills;
  4. Arthur Kehas Achievement Award—for graduating as the top recruit at the Police Academy;
  5. Assorted Awards and Commendations while employed at the Nashua Police Department; and
  6. Graduated Cum Laude from Massachusetts School of Law.
