DUI and Criminal Defense Attorneys

Bartlett & Grippe will work to restore your life and reputation.

Every individual accused of a crime is entitled to a defense

Getting arrested for a DUI or other alcohol-related charges can be a scary and daunting event. The main witnesses against you are the police. In most cases, there is scientific evidence in the form of breath test and/or the blood tests presented against you. Any roadside video tape of your arrest, the officer’s testimony, and your performance on the Standard Field Sobriety tests may also present damaging evidence against you.

In Connecticut, an arrest for DUI triggers can trigger an immediate 24 hour suspension, following by a 45 day suspension with the condition that you install and ignition interlock device into your car. This is in addition to the criminal charges filed by the state! In addition, you face possible jail time, fines, probation, and a stain on your driving history that will last for 10 years.

A DUI charge is a serious matter that deserves the attention of a serious attorney. Our firm’s DUI and criminal practice focuses on defending your case and minimizing the impact of a DUI charge on your life. Our firm utilizes the experience of a former state’s attorney and the very same materials used by Connecticut State Police in DUI Enforcement to defend your case.

If you have been arrested for a DUI or any other criminal charge, contact our office so that we can help defend you.
