42 years of Criminal Defense and Personal Injury Experience
At some firms, lawyers spread themselves thin by trying to provide representation in numerous areas of law. At the Law Office of Jack O’Donnell, L.L.C., we understand that we can provide the most effective representation by focusing on two mains areas of law: criminal defense and personal injury. Our focused representation helps ensure we are always up to date with the legal trends and the relevant cases. With 42 years of experience, our New Haven criminal law and personal injury attorneys are familiar with the factual patterns of the law, and they know how to quickly asses a case for its strengths and weaknesses.
Most crimes fall into two classifications: misdemeanors and felonies. A misdemeanor means that although the crime is considered less serious than a felony, you may still face jail time up to one year. Do not take Connecticut misdemeanor charges lightly. When you contact our firm, we can help make sure you understand your options and have the legal protection you need.
We also defend individuals facing felony charges. A felony charge not only carries a significant period of incarceration, but conviction can haunt you for the rest of your life. Before speaking with law enforcement about allegations or prosecutors about charges, it is important to talk with a lawyer to make sure you understand your rights. We can provide the representation you need at any step in the process.
Whether you were involved in an auto accident or you were injured on someone else’s property, we know you might be overwhelmed with the extra medical expenses that are accruing. We handle all personal injury cases on a contingent fee basis, which means that we take no fee from you, but we get a percentage of the settlement or money judgment.
