Whether you’re facing a misdemeanor or a serious felony, I provide a rigorous defense against a spectrum of violent crimes, including but not limited to:

  • Assault and battery
  • Reckless endangerment
  • Robbery and theft
  • Kidnapping
  • Unlawful restraint

Connecticut Murder Defense – A Nuanced Approach

Murder allegations are some of the most challenging cases to defend. While Connecticut has abolished the death penalty, a murder conviction could result in a life sentence. The media’s role in sensationalizing such cases can inadvertently create prejudice, turning public opinion against you before the trial even begins. My team and I recognize these challenges. Our holistic approach to defense aims to protect you both in the courtroom and in the court of public opinion. If the need arises, we will advocate for a change in trial location to ensure you receive a fair and impartial hearing.

Every Case Has A Defense

Remember, being charged is not the same as being convicted. There are always potential defenses to explore. My firm meticulously investigates every facet of your case, leveraging eyewitness accounts, witness statements, available evidence, and advanced scientific testing methods. With a rich history of trial experience, I know how to strategically present a persuasive defense to a jury. I remain committed to harnessing every legal avenue and tactic to ensure the best possible outcome for my clients.
