The Maddox Law Firm, LLC

Connecticut Criminal Defense Lawyer? Don't Judge.

Many attorneys who refer to themselves as criminal defense lawyers look at their clients and their plight and act as though it could never happen to them.


You drove drunk. I would NEVER drive drunk.

You got into an argument with your wife, your husband, your neighbor or your friend and then you broke some stuff and were arrested. I'd NEVER argue or break stuff, or steal anything or hurt anyone and if I had to admit it, I'd have to say that I just understand people who do any of those things.

You're different than I am.

Yes, I'll defend you. I'll speak on your behalf in court. I'll get you a deal, but your problem is a "you" problem. It's not a "me" problem.

I'm not judging you, at least not to your face; later on, I will though.

By the way, that "deal" will be what I think is a good deal, but it may not be the absolutely best possible deal. That's because I don't identify with you. I can't identify with you and so, getting the best possible result isn't the point for me. Just getting done is the point.


There's a separation. It's almost as if the client is an alien from another galaxy that has an outer space infection that is peculiar to the alien's native planet.

E.T., phone home, but don't phone this lawyer.

These are the same lawyers who stand in front of the court and use words like "my client represents that...", or "according to my client..."., so that the judge knows that the lawyer is completely separate from the client. That kills me. They're also the lawyers who, when the client isn't present at the time that their case is called, rush to put all of the things on record that they did to make sure that the client knew to be there.

Is that so that the judge thinks that the lawyer and the judge are on the same side?

They're not.

The lawyer is supposed to be on the client's side. Always. Yes, lawyers are obligated to be honest with the court, candid with the tribunal, but that doesn't mean that you tattoo your client with a bus tire imprint.

Where's the compassion? Where's the love?

Does your law firm get you? Does your law firm and your lawyer identify with you? The Maddox Law Firm does.
