Stamford, Connecticut Drug Crime Defense

Charged with a New York or Connecticut Drug Crime?
Defense Lawyer Joseph J. Colarusso
Former Prosecutor with Over 25 years of Experience

The government’s “war on drugs” has led to more than one million people being arrested at a cost of more than $38 million to date. That’s an arrest every 20 seconds with more than 8,000 people a year ending up in prison, often for low-level, non-violent offenses.

On the street, this “war on drugs” has become a war on people’s civil liberties. Illegal stops, racial profiling, illegal searches and seizures, entrapment and federal forfeiture laws can take your property and give it to the government.

It’s a complex system weighted against the accused.
