Windham County Criminal Defense Attorneys
Defending Clients for 40 Years
At The Law Office of Jerome Paun, we feel compassion for you, your situation,
and your loved ones. We understand that if you are looking for a criminal
defense lawyer, you, or somebody you care about, is in trouble with the
law. You’ve been arrested, or you expect to be. The police, or other
government agents like the Department of Children and Families, want to
talk to you. You may feel like you want to talk to them because you think
it’s all a big mistake. You may think that once you explain your
side of the story to them, they will understand and it will all go away.
(You don’t know it yet but it won’t just go away.) You are
probably scared of what’s happening, confused about what to do,
and worried about your future. You probably have questions you would like answered.
We are passionate about vigorously defending our clients' rights, preserving
their freedom and protecting their future. We are dedicated to defending
drunk driving and other motor vehicle offenses, and
juvenile delinquency charges. If you already have a Connecticut criminal conviction record, we can
help you clear your record by expunging your convictions with a pardon
petition or an erasure motion, which ever may be appropriate.
We understand. We can help you, if you’ll just call us for your free

What You Should Expect From Us
When you call our office, we will carefully listen to what you tell us.
We will make every effort to schedule your initial free consultation as
soon as possible, at a time convenient for you.
We want to help you get out of your legal troubles.
During your free initial consult: we will listen to you and your concerns;
we will explain the criminal justice system to you; we will explain your
rights to you. We will explore the facts of your case. We will explain
how the facts relate to the charges against you so you will understand
your legal situation. We will explore the legal defenses that may be available.
We will answer your questions thoroughly and honestly. Finally, we will explain our counsel fees to you. And we will work with
you to help make our fees affordable for you.
By the end of your initial consultation, we want you to leave knowing more
about your situation than you did before you came. We want you to feel
at least somewhat more hopeful about your legal defense options, even
if you don't retain our services.
If you retain The Law Office of Jerome Paun, we will empower you to effectively
participate in your legal defense.
We will promptly return your phone calls and honestly answer your questions. We will do our best to help you avoid: criminal conviction, jail, and a
conviction record by using a diversionary program if you are eligible
for one. If you are ineligible for a diversionary program, we will attempt
to negotiate the best possible plea agreement to minimize the criminal
charges and to avoid or minimize a jail sentence. If all else fails and
you want to go to trial, we will vigorously defend you at trial. We know
and will explain to you what the government must prove to convict you
of the crimes charged. We know and will explain to you what legal defenses
may be available to challenge and hopefully defeat the state's case. We
will always remember that you are innocent until you either choose to
plead guilty or are found guilty by proof beyond a reasonable doubt after trial.
