Drug possession and selling drugs are very serious offenses in Connecticut. A conviction on drug-related charges can result in serious penalties, including fines, jail time and a permanent criminal record. Charges are more severe if the offense is committed within 1500 feet of a school or day care center. With so much on the line, it is important to have an experienced defense lawyer on your side who understands the law and will fight to protect your rights.

Fighting to Protect your Interests
When you hire our firm, we will pursue every legal option available in an effort to beat the charges against you. Our attorneys will thoroughly examine every aspect of your case and work to find holes in the prosecution's case that we can use to your advantage. We will seek to suppress any evidence that was obtained illegally and seize any opportunity to have the charges against you dismissed or reduced.
We have been successful in previous cases at getting our clients admitted to diversionary programs in lieu of incarceration. First time offenders charged with simple possession can be considered for Connecticut's Drug Education Program. If you complete the requirements of the program, the possession offense can be dismissed. People facing charges of possession with intent to sell are not eligible for the program.
