Bristol Criminal Defense Lawyer

Being arrested and charged with a crime is frightening and stressful. Asserting your rights is also scary, but it is important to remain silent until you can speak with an attorney who knows how to protect you.

At the Law Offices of Jodi Zils Gagne, LLC, we take pride in smart and proactive criminal defense. Our experienced attorney will guide you through the legal system and diligently pursue the best possible result within the framework of the law. Our legal team is equipped to get the charges dismissed, negotiate on your behalf or fight for you at trial.

Hartford DUI And Drug Crime Defense Attorney

Attorney Jodi Zils Gagne has a strong background in civil litigation, but practices chiefly in criminal law. Her criminal defense practice is devoted to representing ordinary citizens — adults, college students and juveniles — who are in trouble with the law. She provides defense against the full spectrum of felony and misdemeanor crimes:

  • Drunk driving or traffic crimes
  • Drug charges
  • Larceny or burglary
  • Financial and white collar crimes
  • Sex offenses
  • Domestic violence
  • Violent crimes and gun crimes
  • Violations of probation

 

We understand that a conviction as charged could mean jail or prison and has far-reaching consequences for employment and social standing. We will do everything we can to dismiss the charges or minimize the impact on your freedom, your family and your future.

Ms. Gagne practices in state and federal courts of Connecticut, and has extensive experience with criminal appeals and post-conviction relief.

We also represent victims of employment discrimination, including sexual harassment or wrongful termination. We will hold those parties accountable for economic losses (medical bills, lost income) as well as your pain and suffering, and emotional trauma.

Attorney Gagne also represents commercial and residential landlords in landlord-tenant disputes, from non-payment or lease violations to eviction proceedings and rent control matters.
