Over 25 Years Of Experience In Criminal Law And Traffic Defense

Your case is important so choose someone with experience. Attorney Connelly has over 25 years of criminal defense experience, and he is prepared to vigorously defend clients facing a broad range of criminal charges, including traffic violations and DWI/drunk driving. We also handle charges involving violent crimes, as well as sexually related offenses and drug charges, among other areas of criminal defense.

Pre-Charge And Post-Conviction Matters

Attorney Connelly also offers pre-charge representation so you can discuss the charges that may be filed against you and enlist representation as soon as possible to protect your rights. Post-conviction matters that we handle include expungement and motions for appropriate relief.

Talk To Your Lawyer, Not The Police

Common questions we hear are, "Should I answer the police officer's questions?" and, " Do I need a lawyer for a traffic matter? " Law enforcement officials and prosecutors may try to convince or coerce you into giving a statement with a potentially false promise of favorable treatment.

Avoid "hanging yourself." Whatever benefit you get from answering questions without an attorney present is far outweighed by the damage you may do to your case.

While legal help is invaluable, there are certain things an attorney may not be able to do, depending on your situation. For more information, see What A Lawyer Can't Do.
