Attorney Charles "Charlie" Rankin and Attorney James "Jamie" Sultan founded our boutique criminal defense firm on June 1, 1986. They had graduated from Harvard Law School in the same class (1980) and worked together as associates at the small criminal and constitutional litigation firm of Silverglate & Gertner. After each subsequently enjoyed a successful tour in private solo practice, the two reunited to join forces as Rankin & Sultan.
Rankin & Sultan quickly developed a reputation for providing highly sophisticated and effective criminal defense at both the trial and appellate levels. Today, Rankin & Sultan is at the forefront of the field, having forged some of the most significant advances in criminal justice in Massachusetts over the past two decades. Our attorneys practice regularly in state and federal trial courts throughout Massachusetts. We also practice regularly in state and federal appellate courts in Massachusetts and in other jurisdictions. The firm is one of very few Boston criminal firms listed in the Martindale-Hubbell Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers.
We have been recognized by US News and World Report as one of the best law firms in Boston for non-white-collar and white-collar criminal defense. We have also been named by that publication as one of the best law firms in the United States for appellate advocacy. Both Charlie Rankin and Jamie Sultan have been individually recognized by Best Lawyers in America and Massachusetts Super Lawyers for both non-white-collar and white-collar criminal defense. Both Charlie and Jamie have also received an AB rating from Martindale-Hubbell, the highest available rating. Cathy Hinton has been recognized as an "Up and Coming Lawyer" by Massachusetts Lawyer's Weekly and as a Massachusetts "Super Lawyer." Kerry Haberlin has been recognized as a "Rising Star" by Super Lawyers. We are well-known and well-respected by our colleagues and adversaries alike.
