At the Hartford law offices of Rome McGuigan, P.C., our attorneys have been providing intelligent, effective criminal defense to individuals throughout Connecticut for more than 35 years.

Defending Against Serious Charges Including First Degree Assault

Serious criminal offenses, including murder, assault in the first degree and other violent offenses, carry serious, life-altering penalties. Depending on the severity of the crime, convictions can result in hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines and up to 60 years in prison. In addition, Connecticut courts may impose the death penalty for commission of the worst offenses.

When the stakes are this high, it is important to have experienced criminal defense attorneys working to protect your rights, your freedom and your life. For more than three decades, our lawyers have been helping clients who have been accused of serious criminal offenses and felonies obtain the best possible resolution of their charges.

At Rome McGuigan, P.C., we have former prosecutors and former state's attorneys on staff. Because we know how the prosecution thinks, we can often predict the approach they will take during trial. We also know the evidence and legal arguments necessary to undermine the prosecution's position, and we force opposing counsel to reduce charges and make agreements that are in our clients' best interests.
