Attorneys There For You When Facing Criminal Charges

The criminal defense practice at The Pellegrino Law Firm, P.C., began as a courtesy service to our clients in other areas of our law practice. When a business client was arrested for a DWI or a divorce client was charged with domestic violence, he or she called an attorney they knew and trusted, and we were there for them.

If you are facing criminal charges, contact our New Haven criminal defense lawyers at the Pellegrino Law Firm in Connecticut.

The Criminal Defense Representation We Provide

Today, we can be there for you, too. We have extended our criminal defense service, formerly reserved for existing clients, to anyone in the New Haven area who has had a run-in with the law. When you call our New Haven criminal defense attorneys for help, you can be assured that you will be treated with respect.

Our law firm primarily defends people charged with misdemeanors, such as:

  • DWI, DUI, drunk driving
  • Traffic offenses, such as reckless driving, speeding, driving on a suspended or revoked license
  • Possession of narcotics or paraphernalia
  • Criminal mischief and vandalism, from graffiti to theft of Christmas decorations
  • Assault, especially those involving bar fights
  • Shoplifting or employee theft
  • Underage drinking

We will meet with the prosecutor and attempt to negotiate a favorable solution to the problem. You can rely on us to strive to keep you out of jail while protecting your civil rights and best interest.

Defending College Students, Faculty And Staff

We frequently represent students, faculty and staff members at area colleges and universities, including Yale University, Quinnipiac University, the University of New Haven, Albertus Magnus College, Southern Connecticut State University and Gateway Community College. Because of our experience in school law, we are well-equipped to represent or advise you regarding your school's disciplinary hearings as well as provide representation in criminal court.

Defending People With Asperger Syndrome

Our lawyers have experience defending people with Asperger syndrome, a form of autism. Police and criminal justice employees often do not understand this condition. They can interpret the person's failure to make eye contact or to understand figurative language as defiance, rather than as a symptom of the condition.
