Connecticut Criminal Defense Attorney Explains the Importance of Having a Solid Defense Team

For those charged with a federal crime, the stakes are higher and a criminal defense lawyer with a track record of success in federal cases is essential, according to a leading Connecticut defense attorney.

Online PR News – 10-December-2009 – New York, New York – “The government has recently increased its prosecution of criminal conduct, traditionally tired on a state levels, in federal court,” says Frederick D. Paoletti, Jr., Founding Principal of the law firm of Paoletti & Gusmano, (, a criminal defense law firm that specializes in defending federal crimes in Connecticut. “As a result, many defendants run the risk of longer prison sentences.”

Therefore, he says, having an expert federal crime defense is more important now than ever before. When choosing a federal criminal defense attorney in the State of Connecticut, Paoletti says that it is imperative that a defendant choose a firm that has routinely practiced criminal law in the federal court system and has a proven track record of success.

“This is especially true in federal drug cases, such as federal drug trafficking, federal drug possession, and federal drug conspiracy,” says Paoletti. “In these types of cases, the stakes are much higher and having an expert federal drug crime defense attorney is a necessity.”

Paoletti says that in addition to defending federal drug crimes, his firm has successfully defended accused organized crime members that have been indicted under RICO statutes on federal exhortation charges, federal conspiracy charges, money laundering charges and gambling charges.

“The key is to hire a criminal defense attorney that understands the federal system and federal laws,” says Paoletti. “Only then can there be a chance for success.”
