If you've been arrested on a criminal charge in Connecticut, you have a lot to think about. Facing a criminal charge — and the prospect of appearing in court with your future on the line — is tremendously stressful. As one of the leading Connecticut criminal defense lawyers, I can help you. My name is Erin Field, and I am a longtime criminal lawyer here in Connecticut – it is what I do for a living. I fight for people just like you. You should know that many criminal cases have an excellent chance for a dismissal or not guilty verdict. Even in cases where the facts seem bad, there may be hidden opportunities to challenge the prosecution, which only a highly qualified and experienced CT criminal lawyer would know. In fact, many cases that look terrible on the surface play out differently in the courtroom. As an experienced Connecticut criminal defense attorney, it is my job to expose all the problems in the prosecution's case.
The facts of every case are different, which leads to widely varying defense options. There are typically many opportunities to get a case thrown out or dismissed, or make plea and sentencing arguments.

As a leading female criminal defense attorney in Connecticut, I have worked hard to earn the respect of my fellow lawyers and judges. I have aggressively taken on the state's top prosecutors and won some really tough cases, all while keeping a focus on civility.
