Criminal Law

Being charged with a crime is often a disorienting experience. You may only understand some of the charges. The language of prosecutors and the courts can be difficult for an ordinary individual to understand after being swept up into the criminal justice system in Connecticut. You may not be sure how to protect your rights.

Ask For An Attorney Immediately

The biggest mistake any individual can make with a criminal law issue is believing they can handle their situation and their defense on their own. The Fifth Amendment guarantees you the right to remain silent and the right to counsel. Upon your arrest, you should ask to speak to an attorney and then remain silent.
