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.

That being said, none of that matters if they are not able to get the results you want.

Now, it is impossible – not to mention unethical – for a defense attorney to promise a particular result. All cases are different, and there are too many variables for that.

However, you can get a sense of how likely a lawyer is to help you attain the best possible outcome by looking at the results they have achieved in past cases.

My record speaks for itself.
