Criminal Defense Attorney Practice Areas

Posted on: December 10, 2015


Knight & Cerritelli are seasoned criminal defense attorneys that are focused on preserving and protecting the rights of their clients.  Just because you have been accused of a crime, does not mean that you are guilty of committing one.  In the United States, you are innocent until proven guilty and you have constitutional rights, regardless of what crime you have been accused of.  To make sure that yours are protected, call (203) 624-6115 to schedule a consultation with our New Haven, CT law firm.

Our criminal defense practice areas include:

DUI Cases

If you have been pulled over and accused of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, you need an experienced DUI attorney to represent you in court.   In our 06510 law office, we see clients accused of a DUI that otherwise have a perfectly clean record.  The problem is that most people do not realize the severity of a DUI conviction. This is a criminal charge and a conviction will go on your permanent criminal record.  This makes fighting the charges critical to your overall future, employment opportunities, etc.   If you live in New Haven, CT or the surrounding area, we encourage you to take these charges seriously and hire a criminal lawyer to represent you.

Drug Charges

With the aggressive war on drugs being waged across this country, being caught possessing drugs, transporting or selling them, can land in you jail for a long time.  This is not a charge that you want to dismiss or take lightly.  You need to hire drug defense lawyers that know what they are doing and are experienced in dealing with these types of cases.  Knight & Cerritelli have the trial and negotiations experience you need to get fair treatment and to make sure that if you are guilty, your sentence is as light as possible.

Criminal Cases

Working with a confident criminal attorney is the best thing you can do when accused of committing a crime.  Whether you have been accused of assault, manslaughter, arson, breaking and entering, etc., you need a criminal lawyer that knows their way around the courtroom and understands the power of building a strong defense.  The last thing you want to do is to head to court with someone that primarily only negotiates plea deals.  You need a criminal defense attorney that understands procedure and how to use the law to your advantage.  When you speak with Knight & Cerritelli, you can be confident that you are meeting with a criminal lawyer that will fight hard for your freedom and use their vast knowledge of the criminal justice system, to protect your rights.

If you live in New Haven, CT or the 06510 area, call (203) 624-6115 to schedule an appointment with a DUI attorney, drug defense lawyers, or a criminal defense attorney that will fight for you. Whether it is ensuring that your constitutional rights are protected or making sure that a strong case of your innocence is made, Knight & Cerritelli will work hard for your present and your future.
