Attorneys at law

Knight & Cerritelli, LLC, is a small New Haven firm providing individualized and personalized attention to its clientele. While some firms bill themselves as "general practice law firms," the attorneys at Knight & Cerritelli focus their attention on two primary areas of law: criminal defense and personal injury litigation.

The firm was founded in 1994 by attorney Tara Knight, a board-certified criminal defense attorney, who was inspired to represent individuals accused of crimes. In 1999 attorney Gregory Cerritelli, an adjunct university professor and former police officer, joined the firm. Over the years they have built a reputation in the New Haven legal community as dedicated and aggressive advocates for their clients.

Meticulous Preparation and Sharp Litigation

The New Haven criminal defense attorneys at Knight & Cerritelli have represented individuals in a variety of criminal matters ranging from capital murder to breach of peace. They pride themselves on their devotion to their clients as well as the meticulous preparation and investigation of their cases in order to achieve the highest standards of defense and best possible results.

Additionally, the firm proudly uses its litigation skills to represent clients in personal injury matters. The attorneys seek out the highest monetary awards and settlements to redress their clients' injuries.

Knight & Cerritelli also represents clients in the pardon process where they seek to expunge and erase their clients' criminal records, which are often a source of embarrassment as well as a barrier to obtaining meaningful employment.
