Norm Pattis, one of America’s Best Known Criminal Lawyers, Wants you to Know:

  • Domestic Violence, also referred to as Family Violence, is a serious violent offense carrying potentially substantial jail time;
  • If you are arrested you can be convicted for Family Violence in Connecticut even if your spouse refuses to testify against you;
  • If police violated your civil rights during your arrest or if the evidence against you was gathered in a way that was a civil rights violation, our Family Violence lawyers can have the arrest invalidated, the evidence excluded, and the charges dismissed.

Often when someone is innocent of the crime charged or if there are circumstances that can be explained, you should understand that police (with their presumption of guilt focus) can get it wrong with dire consequences for you, so before you or a loved one speaks with the police, consult a defense lawyer and let that lawyer handle the explanation. The rule is they can hold your own words against you, however misunderstood, but not the words of your lawyer.

You Should Act Quickly to Preserve Your Rights – Here’s Why

The prosecutor and police, with their massive resources, have spent time organizing a case against you so you must act quickly to prevent the state from gaining even more of an unfair advantage.

Whether this is your first Family Violence charge or if you have a record of prior offenses, it is important that you talk to the experienced CT Domestic Violence lawyers at Pattis & Smith immediately to understand and preserve your rights and prepare your defense.

We want to protect your rights and help get the Family Violence charge against you reduced or dismissed altogether. We have successful strategies to defend you against these specific criminal charges and we are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!
