Extremely Professional

Doug and his assistant have been outstanding to work with. They are extremely professional and have been very kind and compassionate with me during this extremely difficult time in my life.

Very Helpful and Honest

Being charged with a crime is a tough thing to battle with both emotionally and financially. However when your have a lawyer like Douglas Rudolph, it can definetly smooth things over and calm the situation down. He was very helpful and honest throughout my case, whenever I had the slightest question about anything he was just a phone call away night and day to give his professional insight and advice which ultimately will end up in my case being dropped due to this. He is very thorough in what he does going above and beyond in his profession, always tending to his client with a friendly and welcoming attitude in their time of need, in addition to his knowledge on the judicial system and all matters related. He is an honest man who is not looking to rip you off (you should look at what other lawyers want to charge you) but rather he wants to help you out as much as he can so that your life can return to normal as soon as possible. If I ever needed representation of a lawyer again, I would 100% contact attorney Rudolph once more to help me out in whatever was troubling my life.

I Would Definitely Recommend

“I hired Mr Rudolf to represent me in multiple cases and he was magnificent. He was able to procure the best possible outcomes in both case, which was fantastic. He was always available for my questions and never made me feel like a pest which was also great. He was very reasonably priced, also awesome. I would definitely recommend him. He knows the law and knows how to handle the system.”

I Will Forever Be Grateful

Last year my boyfriend relapsed and with the relapse came instances of stealing. After he got sober, and we started working things out, he was notified of an arrest warrant for one of the items he stole. He turned himself in, went through the court process with a Public Defender, and after seven months of going back and forth to court with him he was put on Probation. About three months later, when my boyfriend has over a year of sobriety, started an Associates Degree Program, is working, and our lives stared getting back to normal; the Police decided to slap him with a warrant for another offense that occurred when he relapsed. We decided not to use a Public Defender this time, and started calling criminal defense attorneys. After calling several attorneys my boyfriend was able to speak with Attorney Rudolph, who was willing to meet with us on a Sunday to discuss the case. From the first meeting Attorny Rudolph was confident, compassionate, knowledgeable, and reassuring. At the first meeting he went over different outcomes he thought could happen, his fees (which were extremely reasonable), and never made us feel pressured to hire him. Attorney Rudolph kept us updated on all communication he had with the court and called my boyfriend the night before each court date to see how he was doing and to review for the next day. Within a month Attorney Rudolph was able to get the Prosecutor’s office to agree to additional probation to run concurrently with his current Probation. I will forever be grateful to Attorney Rudolph for making this process far less nerve racking than it was the first time my boyfriend and I had to go to court, for his compassion, and for his ability to see my boyfriend for the good man he is and not for the things he did when he relapsed. Thank you!

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 [...]

Connecticut Offers Pretrial Diversion Programs for These Crimes

Pretrial Alcohol Education Program (PAEP) | Pretrial Diversion Programs | Family Violence Education Program (FVEP) | Accelerated Rehabilitation (AR)

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.

To help those that find themselves charged with non-violent crimes for the first time, Connecticut offers a second chance through pretrial diversion programs.

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 [...]
