Contact the Law Office of Tina Sypek D'Amato, LLC, to schedule a free consultation regarding criminal defense or personal injury matters including the following:

Criminal law Generally speaking, in Connecticut, first time offenders have an opportunity to escape a criminal conviction if the crime they are charged with is not considered serious, and they are capable of finishing an appropriate educational / rehabilitative program and its requirements without further arrests.

Unlawful Traffic Stops The Constitution extends protections to those who have been stopped unlawfully and subjected to illegal search and seizure. Tina is determined to provide clients with all protections under the Constitution.

Sex offenses If you have been charged with any type of sexual offense, including child pornography possession or sexual abuse of a minor, you have immediate legal needs. It is essential that you discuss your case as soon as possible with an experienced criminal defense lawyer.

Drug offenses Drug charges include charges of misdemeanor drug possession, manufacture, trafficking, or possession with intent to sell marijuana, cocaine, crack, heroin, and other controlled substances. A drug possession or trafficking arrest is a serious matter that requires prompt attention from an experienced criminal lawyer.

Gun cases A typical gun case often involves charges of illegal possession of firearms by a felon. Other types of gun charges include carrying a concealed weapon, possessing a gun without a permit, or carrying a gun at the same time that another crime (such as a drug crime or robbery) was allegedly committed. What might have been a misdemeanor may be upgraded to a felony charge because of a weapon.

Assault Tina has the knowledge, the experience, and the necessary passion to provide a vigorous defense of someone charged with assault and battery involving a police officer, a spouse, a boyfriend or girlfriend or a bar fight.

Domestic Assault In many situations, domestic assault should have been charged as a breach of peace. If you have been served a restraining order or have other issues regarding accusations of domestic violence, Tina can help.

Serious juvenile cases Attorney Tina Sypek D'Amato represents juveniles who are being tried as adults in serious cases involving felony charges.

State and federal charges If you have unresolved charges on the state level, once you are sentenced in federal court, it is imperative that you fill out the Interstate Agreement on Detainers. This will help you to resolve your charges quickly, within a short period of time, or the state will be required to dismiss them.

Federal Drug Conspiracy Tina provides effective defense of federal drug conspiracy charges involving drug smuggling, drug sales and distribution and money laundering related to illegal drugs.

Federal Gun Charges Federal gun charges can be brought if you have a felony conviction and later have possession of a gun. Federal sentencing guidelines can be complex. Your criminal history and the offense level of your previous crime will be considered.

Pardons and clemency The likelihood of receiving clemency after a prison sentence has been handed down often depends on a number of factors including the type of crime, how long the convicted person has been in prison, and what evidence there is that the person is rehabilitated enough to send him or her back into society, as well as extenuating circumstances that require a person be released to go home.

Habeas corpus Habeas corpus is a civil court procedure by which a defense attorney argues that counsel in a previous trial was ineffective, or that something happened during the criminal defense process that was not constitutional.

Probation violation When the terms of your probation have been violated, you have very few rights. Usually probation is violated due to a new arrest.
