A Skilled And Aggressive Criminal Defense Attorney
Criminal charges are a serious matter that can come with a lifetime of consequences. In addition to legal consequences like major fines and imprisonment, indirect consequences like not getting approved for a loan or gaining employment can make life extremely difficult for you. Your criminal defense attorney can help you try to beat or reduce your charges, but not all attorneys are the same.
My name is Sebastian DeSantis, and I have been defending my clients from criminal charges for more than 20 years. From my New Haven office of DeSantis Law Firm, I offer clients throughout Connecticut the level of dedication and respect they deserve from their defense attorney. Because each attorney you can choose from offers a different level of service, I encourage you to learn more about my unique representation.
My History Of Experience
I graduated from the University of Connecticut in 1993 and from Suffolk University Law School and Suffolk University Sawyer School of Management in 1997, receiving a Juris Doctor and a master’s in business administration. I then founded my firm to help defend clients from criminal charges.
I have handled dozens of appeals, hundreds of Habeas Corpus matters and thousands of criminal matters in state, federal and tribal court ranging from capital murder down to DUI’s and misdemeanors. I also have experience handling criminal matters when someone is under investigation, negotiating a disposition, jury and bench trials, and appeals.
In an effort to increase my experience, I have been a Board Certified Criminal Trial Advocate (www.NBTAlawyers.com) since 2006. Only a handful of Connecticut attorneys hold this certification because of the rigorous standards required to receive and maintain such certification. I am also one of the Top 100 Criminal Trial Lawyers starting in 2013 by The National Trial Lawyers, and Martindale rates me as having high criteria of general ethical standard and skills, based on my past legal work.
In an effort to stay abreast of new developments in the practice of law, I am a member of many different legal associations. As a CJA panel member, I attend seminars focused on federal defense and sentencing. I also participate in numerous continuing legal education events throughout the years as well.
