Criminal Defense

Eastern Connecticut Criminal Defense Lawyers

An arrest and conviction for DUI, drug possession, or domestic violence can result in jail, expensive fines, and a permanent criminal record. If convicted for DUI or drug possession, your insurer could raise your rates -- substantially. Additionally, most employers have a zero-tolerance policy regarding criminal convictions. As a result, you could lose your job and have difficulty finding employment afterwards should the conviction go on your criminal record.

At the Anderson Law Firm, our attorneys work with our own investigators, forensic experts, and lab specialists in challenging the evidence against our clients. We expose the mishandling of evidence, improperly administered field sobriety tests, malfunctioning breathalyzers, and gather witness testimony that contradicts the claims of the prosecution.

If you are facing criminal charges for drunk driving, drug possession, domestic violence, or a serious traffic offense, contact criminal defense attorneys at the Anderson Law Firm today to schedule a confidential consultation to discuss your case.

Pursuing Alternatives to Jail and Expensive Fines

Our attorneys have had great success with getting many of our clients placed into first-time offender diversionary programs. These programs, typically involving en educational component and some form of community service, are an excellent way to avoid having a conviction on your criminal record. In cases involving DUI, the court will determine if you are interested in driving responsibly and if you take your drug or alcohol problem seriously. Participating in a diversionary program, in conjunction with voluntary enrollment in a alcohol counseling program, is an effective way to prove to the court your willingness to act responsibly.

If a diversion program is not available for the offense you have been charged with or you are ineligible to participate in one because of a previous offense, we still may be able to help you by working with the prosecutor to get your charges reduced or dismissed.
