Criminal Law

Going through a criminal investigation is incredibly complicated and stressful. If you’ve been arrested, charged with a crime, or investigated for criminal activity, you need a lawyer who’s ready to protect your rights.

Our legal team has a thorough knowledge of criminal law and is equipped to handle each client’s unique circumstances. We’re prepared to defend individuals charged with a full range of misdemeanors and felony crimes, including:

· Drug-related crimes – Having any kind of drug conviction can have a severely negative impact on your life. If you’ve been accused or charged with drug possession, trafficking, or dealing, please contact us today to get the defense you deserve.

· Assault – Assaults range from misdemeanors to felonies, and our legal team has experience defending clients against a wide variety of assault charges. If you have been accused of simple assault, aggravated assault, sexual assault, or any other assault charge, our lawyers will fight for you in court.

· Murder – Murder charges can have severe consequences. Enormous fines and a lifetime in prison are common punishments for various degrees of murder. Our legal team will do everything in our power to get your sentence reduced or dismissed entirely.

· DWI – Driving under the influence of alcohol can cause severe injury to you, anyone else in your vehicle, and the world around you. Consequences include license suspension/revocation, jail time, fines, community service, and a vast number of other costs and penalties associated with driving under the influence. If you’ve been arrested for a DWI, Cirillo Law Firm will provide the aggressive defense you need to stand up to your charges in court.

· Property crime – Penalties for property crime range from minor to severe, but a single property crime on your criminal record could impede your ability to find employment in the future. Whether you’ve been charged with shoplifting or armed robbery, our legal team is equipped to stand up for you in court.

· Seal your criminal record – Has an old charge on your criminal record been causing you problems finding employment or housing? In Connecticut, you can have your criminal charges erased if you meet one of the following qualifications:            

o   You were charged with a crime but not found guilty

o   Your case was dismissed
