Serving the Danbury, New Milford, Ridgefield and throughout CT with professional legal counsel
People facing a criminal charge may have no previous experience with the criminal justice system. They are frightened and wonder about their rights. They often have little idea of the possible consequences the charges may have and how a conviction can change their life forever. In these situations, it is important to have an experienced criminal defense attorney to act as a guide through the legal process, protect your rights and fight for a positive outcome.
At Smart, Donohue & NeJame, P.C., we build strong defense strategies for clients who are facing all types of felony and misdemeanor criminal charges. With many years of experience practicing in state and local courts, our attorneys are dedicated to minimizing the consequences of bad judgment and / or youthful indiscretions. Whenever possible, we seek alternative penalties such as probation, community service and fines. When permitted by law, we work to expunge or seal criminal and arrest records to limit the long-term consequences of an encounter with the criminal justice system.
