If you’ve been arrested on a criminal charge in Connecticut, you are faced with the following questions:
- What could happen to me if I am convicted?
- Who is the best Connecticut defense lawyer to help me?
- Can we beat the case?
It’s a lot to think about and worry about. Facing a criminal charge, and the prospect of appearing in court with your future on the line is tremendously stressful.
I can help you.
My name is Erin Field, and I am a criminal defense lawyer here in Connecticut. This is what I do for a living.
I fight for people just like you, a person unexpectedly facing a criminal charge in Connecticut courts – whether it is a serious felony charge like first-degree assault or a misdemeanor such as a DUI or drug possession charge. Any criminal offense is serious and can have significant consequences for your future.
What are the Penalties if I am Convicted?
I’ve put together some facts about common criminal charges to give you an overview of what some of the penalties are, and possible options and defenses.
But the facts of every case are different, which leads to widely varying defense options, the opportunities to get a case thrown out or dismissed, or make plea and sentencing arguments.
These general penalty guidelines and minimum and maximum sentence information may give you some insight into what could happen, but may not be reflective of what can happen, and what is likely to happen.
The best way to get an honest and realistic sense of your criminal case is to talk to me.
If you want answers, there is no substitute for a lawyer who defends criminal cases in courts every day across Connecticut. That’s why I offer a free criminal consultation to anyone facing charges here.
How Do I get Help from the Best Defense Lawyer I Can?
I know you are under a lot of stress, and the best thing you can do to relieve some of that pressure is to find the best CT criminal defense attorney to help you. The best lawyer for you is someone who:
- Has the right experience and a record of successfully fighting and winning cases like yours (DWI/DUI, possession, assault).
- Will take the time to listen to you and answer all your questions.
- Make you feel comfortable that you have someone on your side.
I answer my own phone most of the time. I do use an answering service if I’m not available, but I will get an instant notification of your call, and get back to you as quickly as I possibly can. And if you text me, it’s just me.
I won’t ever hand you off to an assistant or paralegal to deal with your case.
Definitely, give me a call, and we can just talk. I’ll let you know what I’m about, and what I can do for you right away. The way to pick a lawyer is to consult with and evaluate at least a few different ones and ask lots of questions. That’s what an initial consultation and lawyer evaluation is for. Any good lawyer will let you consult with them for no charge.
And I’m willing to bet that after you talk to me, you will think that I’m the best lawyer to represent you. And if not, that’s ok too. There’s no obligation for my case evaluation.
Can I Win My Case?
Yes, many types of cases have an excellent chance for a dismissal or not guilty verdict. Even in cases where the facts seem bad may have hidden opportunities to challenge the prosecution that a good criminal defense attorney can dig out.
It is always possible to win your case in a criminal trial. Many cases that look terrible play out differently in the courtroom. We can point out mistakes that police made in arresting you and look for every opportunity to exclude incriminating evidence on Constitutional grounds.
Look, it is impossible to generalize about any defense strategy. Every case is different. But when we talk in a consultation, I can go over the facts of your case in detail, tell you what is good and bad about it, and explain exactly what I would do to fight the case, and what I think our chances would be in winning.
