Experienced, Effective Criminal Defense Lawyer

I have practiced for 25 years, and I can represent you on any charges, including theft or burglary, domestic violence or drug possession . However, I have significant experience in handling:


Connecticut is tough on drunk driving, but there is some leniency for first offenders. If you have a clean criminal record, your case may qualify for nolle prosecution; your license will be suspended, but charges are eventually dismissed if you complete an alcohol education program.

A second DUI conviction may mean some jail time and one-year loss of license. A third drunk driving offense can be punished by up to a year in jail. I know the prosecutors and work with them to try to get clients into a diversion program or get charges reduced to a non-jail offense such as reckless endangerment.

Sexual Assault
If you are charged with rape, date rape, sex with a minor or other sex crime, a conviction means serious prison time and registering thereafter as a sex offender. I will make every attempt to get charges dismissed if there was a serious police error or scant evidence to support the charge. However, going to trial is a huge risk, especially in allegations involving children or teens. In most cases, I negotiate with the prosecution to work out the most favorable plea agreement.

My goal is to prevent criminal charges from putting you in jail or ruining your life. Use my experience to achieve the best outcome for your situation. Before you make any statements, call 860-232-5515 for a free consultation .
