If You Are Charged With An Offense:

If you have been arrested on any criminal charge, it is critical that you remember two things:

  • You do not have to talk with the police or prosecutor without a lawyer present. This is your constitutional right as well as the best course of action in many circumstances.

Charged with a Crime in Connecticut?

Few things can jeopardize your chances of getting or keeping a well-paying job like being convicted of a crime. Employers are not interested in employing people who have been convicted of a crime because they perceive them as being dishonest.

And if you don’t think an employer can’t find out about a conviction, because you did not have to disclose it on your employment application, think again. Employers are very clever, and they have ways of learning things about you, without violating any labor laws.

What Can You Do if You Have Been Charged With a Crime in New Haven?

Countless people in Connecticut have hired the award-winning criminal defense attorneys at Lynch, Traub, Keefe & Errante to defend the criminal accusations against them, and have come away beyond satisfied with their results, particularly those involving a complete dismissal of their case.

Our attorneys always aim for a total dismissal of criminal charges because they understand the long-term devastation that a criminal conviction can and will have on your life. Not to mention the possible jail time, lengthy probation, and potentially financially ruinous restitution you may have to pay if your criminal case is not handled properly.

The New Haven criminal defense lawyers at Lynch, Traub, Keefe & Errante have many tried and true legal strategies in their arsenal. For example, our attorneys may be able to reach out to the prosecutor and negotiate a reduction of the charges against you, or a complete dismissal.

Why Hire a Criminal Defense Attorney ASAP?

When you have been charged with a crime, you have several important rights. Among these are the right to remain silent, the right to a jury trial, and most importantly, the right to be represented by counsel of your choosing at every stage of the process.

When you are charged with a crime, or suspect that you will be, it is important to get a qualified New Haven criminal defense attorney involved. The sooner, the better.

Remember, the police are not on your side. They work for the prosecutor, who wants to find you guilty. That’s why you need someone in your corner from the very start, who can advocate for your innocence, explain your rights to you, what you have been charged with, and the possible outcomes of your case.

Why Experience Matters

Time and again, we have seen how other inexperienced defense attorneys mess up their clients’ cases in completely preventable, unnecessary, and irreversible ways. This is why you should never trust an amateur, general practitioner, or inexperienced lawyer with your criminal case. Whether you have been charged with a misdemeanor or felony, and whether you are innocent, guilty, or looking to negotiate a plea deal, you need an experienced New Haven criminal defense attorney leading the way.
