Because results matter when

You’re Facing A New Haven

Criminal charge

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.

Connecticut Grants Greater Privacy for Juvenile Felony Trials

Juvenile Crimes

A stark separation between juvenile and adult defendants, the laws governing crimes committed by underage offenders have always allowed for greater privacy.

These are the laws that protect a minor’s name from being shared in the media and other public forums, for instance, when they’ve committed a juvenile offense.

So what happens when a juvenile offender has committed a felony?

Normally, these charges are processed as if the juvenile were an adult, which, in some cases, can nullify the privacy [...]

While the criminal justice system in Connecticut is certainly designed to administer punitive measures upon those who commit crimes, courts recognize that many offenders aren’t career criminals – they simply made a mistake.

These programs address a variety of criminal issues and can help keep your criminal record clean. Here’s what you need to know about taking [...]
