Legal Information to Help You Navigate Your Case

The legal system can be overwhelming and complicated, regardless of whether or not you've encountered legal issues before. For this reason, our attorneys at Carlson & Dumeer want to ease some of the burdens you may be up against when facing criminal charges or other tough situations. Below, we provide online legal resources for matters including:

Accelerated Rehabilitation

You may be eligible to apply for accelerated pretrial rehabilitation (AR) in Connecticut if you're a first-time offender or veteran who is facing certain criminal charges. Accelerated rehabilitation in Connecticut could result in the dismissal of your criminal charges if successfully completed. You should consult with an attorney to learn if you are eligible to apply for this diversionary program, as this is not available to everyone. Take a look at the application for accelerated pretrial rehabilitation in Connecticut below and reach out to our firm to learn more.


Family Violence

If you are facing family violence charges in Connecticut, you may be eligible to apply for the Family Violence Education Program, a diversionary program that's available to certain people who are charged with domestic violence. Since this program is only available to individuals who meet its requirements, it's in your best interest to consult with a lawyer to determine if you qualify for the Family Violence Education Program. Your attorney can guide and advise you each step of the way - contact us today to learn how our team can help. To view the Family Violence Education Program application, see the link below.


Impaired Driving Intervention Program

The Pretrial Impaired Driving Intervention Program, or "IDIP," allows certain individuals charged with DUI in Connecticut to get their charges either reduced or dismissed altogether. Even if you complete the program, a judge may not be satisfied with your results and thus may order the prosecution of your DUI charges. As such, it's important to consult with a lawyer to ensure you are well-positioned for success in the IDIP program. To learn more about the IDIP in Connecticut, visit our blog and the link below.


Drug Intervention and Community Service Program

If you are facing charges for drug possession or drug paraphernalia, you may qualify for Connecticut's Drug Intervention and Community Service Program (DICSP). If you are eligible for the DICSP, you would be required to attend a series of drug education classes or a series of substance use treatments, or both. If completed successfully, your drug charges may get reduced or even dismissed. Given the seriousness of drug charges in Connecticut, you should consult with an attorney to learn if you are eligible for this program and advocate for you throughout the process. To learn about the application requirements for the DICSP, see the link below.
