DUI & Criminal Defense

Areas of Practice

The stakes in criminal cases are high. If you have been arrested, you should retain the services of an attorney. Driving under the influence can result in serious penalties, jail time, fines, loss of your driver’s license, counseling, probation and the payment of court costs. Drug Offense cases often carry mandatory minimum sentences. Other types of crimes, including sex crimes, not only have harsh penalties but also significant personal and social consequences.

Penalties for most criminal charges are serious, far reaching, and a lawyer should be retained before your first court hearing. Many mandatory minimal penalties, even for first time offenders, are contained in the Connecticut General Statutes. Based on the police officer’s report and the prosecutor’s file, an experienced attorney can assess the minimum mandatory penalties for most people arrested. People arrested multiple times face harsh penalties and jail time. The best way to ensure that you are getting the best result possible is to have an attorney by your side during the criminal process.
