Summary

I am a trial lawyer with over 30 years’ experience. I am the author of Connecticut Criminal Procedure, our states leading textbook on the criminal process used by lawyers and judges alike.

Since starting my own law firm approximately 20 years ago, my principal work has been the defense of citizens accused of criminal offenses as much a vocation as a business. In this role, I have defended hundreds of citizens accused of crimes making every possible effort to protect an individuals' greatest right and necessity the right to be free from the limitless power of the State to deprive individual liberty.

These sound like big words but I believe in them and have dedicated my life to defending citizens from every walk of life in criminal prosecutions of every kind in all State and Federal courts.

I have done this with great success in every type of case, ranging from crimes of violence from domestic violence to murder, as well as every type of so called "white collar" crimes involving charges of sophisticated economic crimes and conspiracies involving multiple defendants over several states involving corporate defendants as well as individual citizens.

Every criminal prosecution imposes great stress on individuals and families. It is my goal to eliminate the despair and burden imposed by any criminal prosecution by providing the best possible defense against the awesome power of the State and allow you to resume your life as a free member of society.

I would like to discuss your case with you in person or over the phone. For information about my professional qualifications and experience I encourage you to review my website.

In every criminal case, time is a most important concern you need to act promptly.

I can be reached at my office number (860-728-4900). I look forward to talking with you as soon as possible.
