Criminal Defense

You Have A Right To A Lawyer

If you are arrested or under investigation, the Constitution of the United States and of the state of Connecticut guarantee your right to have counsel present prior to speaking to or providing any evidence to law enforcement. The Maddox Law Firm has the experience to protect you and safeguard your constitutional rights from the moment you even suspect that law enforcement has turned its attention to you.

You Deserve A Strong Defense, No Matter The Allegation

When you are represented by our trial law firm, you will be set on the right course with the right combination of knowledge, intelligence and aggressive protection of your rights. We have a long history of success in high-profile state and federal criminal cases, including those involving:

  • Driving while intoxicated (DWI, also known as DUI)
  • Narcotics violations
  • Federal defense
  • Assault
  • Sexual assault
  • Violations of probation
  • Murder
  • Breach of peace
  • Drug crimes
  • Arson
  • Larceny (theft)
  • Juvenile charges
  • Criminal trespass
  • Criminal mischief
  • Gun offenses
  • Evading responsibility
  • Reckless driving

Although we cannot prevent the fact that some of our cases have been and will be covered in the news, we do not play to the media. We protect our clients’ privacy, the integrity of their court proceedings and their constitutional rights at all times.

Keep in mind that prosecution or a conviction may be avoidable through the participation of a diversionary program. We often advocate for our clients’ participation in diversion and education programs for issues pertaining to:

We will evaluate your unique situation and fight for the best possible outcome and rehabilitation, if applicable.
