There are many things you want from a criminal lawyer in Connecticut. They should have experience handling your specific type of charge. An in-depth understanding of the laws of our state. A willingness to fight for you and a strong ability to listen to you and be there when you need them.

When Misdemeanors are Elevated to Felonies in Connecticut

Misdemeanors | Criminal Law | Felonies

Each state has its own criminal justice system – Connecticut is no different. The state’s legislative body passes laws that regulate conduct and specifies the penalties that a judge can – or must – impose when an individual violates or breaks a law. This set of laws is called a penal code.
