Connecticut Lawyer Defending Clients Charged with DUI

A DUI conviction will stay with you long after the immediate consequences of driver's license suspension, fines and incarceration. If convicted, you will have a permanent criminal record. This can impact employment, education, housing, and in some cases, custody and visitation with your children. Don't let a moment of poor judgment affect your life for years to come.

At the Law Offices of Doris B. D'Ambrosio , in West Hartford, I have 25 years of experience as a practicing criminal defense attorney . I understand the true consequences of a DUI and strive to lessen the impact on my client's lives. It is always my goal to have the charges against you dismissed or reduced.

Strategizing Your Defense

The state of Connecticut is very tough on those convicted of DUI charges. As a result, it is extremely important to investigate every possible line of defense, including questioning the police procedures surrounding your arrest. After gathering the facts, I will work with you to develop an aggressive and compelling defense strategy.

First Time Offenders

If you are a first time offender with a clean criminal record, you may qualify for nolle prosecution. This means the prosecution decides to drop your case. However, they retain the ability to reopen your case at any point during the next 13 months. In addition, you will still be subject to temporary license suspension.

Repeat Offenders

I represent clients who find themselves facing a second or third DUI offense. Consequences for these offenses become much more severe. A second DUI conviction can result in jail time and a 3 year license suspension, while a third DUI conviction can result in up to 3 years in jail and a permanent license suspension.

Having practiced in the West Hartford area for a number of years, I know local prosecutors and the way they typically handle DUI cases. I am often able to work with them to reduce charges to a non-jail offense.
