Will A Criminal Charge Affect My Employment?

A criminal charge in Connecticut can upend your life. Authorities seek stiff financial penalties and, in many cases, jail time — even for first-time offenders. Those convicted face difficulties finding and retaining employment. Equally unfortunate is the damage individuals suffer to their reputations. Routinely, individuals charged with crimes find themselves shunned by their communities.

When facing criminal allegations, it is essential to find a lawyer who will protect your reputation and your rights. For more than 25 years, the attorneys at Chinigo, Leone & Maruzo, LLP, have offered aggressive, effective criminal defense counsel to individuals in Norwich and throughout the region. We understand exactly what's at stake, and ready ourselves to fight on our clients' behalf.
