Criminal Defense Lawyers

At Berchem, Moses & Devlin, P.C., our goal in criminal defense matters is to secure the best outcome for our clients based on the specific facts of their individual cases. Through skilled negotiation with the prosecution or through tenacious representation at trial, we can defend your rights immediately after an arrest, before trial and in the courtroom.

Our Criminal Defense Practice

Our criminal defense attorneys handle cases involving a wide range of alleged criminal conduct, including both misdemeanor and felony charges, such as DUI/DWI, traffic violations, theft offenses and assault. We also defend clients against drug-related charges such as possession, manufacturing and distribution of illicit and controlled substances. These drugs can include:

  • Marijuana
  • Meth (Methamphetamine)
  • Prescription medications such as OxyContin and Codeine
  • Cocaine
  • Heroin
  • Ecstasy
  • Ketamine
  • PCP

In any defense case, we work diligently to reach a favorable resolution as early in the process as possible. We fight to eliminate or minimize the jail time, fines and other consequences that you may be exposed to as a result of the allegations you are facing.

Alternatives To Criminal Conviction

Connecticut offers several programs designed to help avoid a conviction of certain crimes, such as DUI, drug offenses, misdemeanors and lower level felonies. Diversionary programs such as the Alcohol Education Program (AEP), Pretrial Accelerated Rehabilitation (AR), the Community Service Labor Program and the Drug Education Program, if successfully completed, result in the charges being dismissed.

These diversionary programs are often designed for first-time offenders. They often involve class time and community service. Eligibility depends on previous convictions or completion of a similar program in another state. Our attorneys can explain these programs and determine if you may be eligible.
