Criminal Defense

Defending the rights of the accused at every stage

At Ury & Moskow, our criminal defense attorneys provide clients charged with state and federal crimes the vigorous representation necessary to protect their rights. Our lawyers routinely handle a wide range of cases, including high profile drug and rape cases, white-collar crime, DUI/DWI, sexual assaults, risk of injury cases and traffic violations. We defend the rights of our clients at every stage of these serious matters, starting when or even before our clients are charged or arrested.

Our attorneys understand that criminal behavior sometimes is just the tip of the iceberg, so we work with medical professionals and consultants to find appropriate treatment facilities when our clients' problems with the law are accompanied by alcoholism, substance abuse and/or mental illness. We also employ consultants to identify alternative sentences that may better serve our clients and the criminal justice system.

Consult with a criminal defense attorney at the first opportunity

If you are under suspicion, have been charged with a crime, or have been arrested, it is extremely important to consult with legal counsel at the first opportunity. Your criminal defense lawyer will then be able to take advantage of every opportunity to improve your position. If you are a potential client, contact our office in Fairfield, Connecticut or Washington, DC to arrange a complimentary consultation with an attorney with the appropriate experience. Our firm serves clients in Norwalk, Stamford, Bridgeport, New Haven, Hartford, Danbury, Waterbury and all of Connecticut.

We defend clients against state and federal criminal charges, including the following:

  • Drug and narcotics charges
  • DUI/DWI/drunk driving and traffic violations
  • Assault, battery, domestic violence
  • Sexual assault, rape, internet sex crimes, sexual predator offenses
  • Child abuse, risk of injury to a minor, use of the internet (MySpace and Facebook) to solicit sex with a minor
  • Burglary, robbery, theft, shoplifting, larceny
  • White collar crime, including embezzlement, employee theft, fraud, identity theft, wire fraud, and internet fraud
  • Juvenile matters

Complex financial crime: When handling a case involving white-collar crime, particularly one involving a complex financial transaction, our criminal defense lawyers work closely with litigators from our banking and commercial law and business litigation practices to provide a carefully crafted and well-targeted defense strategy. Our experience in representing banks and other financial institutions gives us valuable knowledge we use to protect our clients charged with serious white collar crimes.
