DeMatteo Law 203-815-6299

My name is Chris DeMatteo. I am a Connecticut attorney and represent clients in criminal, juvenile, civil and probate matters at both the trial and appellate levels. I work with my clients to solve legal problems and also to plan to prevent others from arising.

I am a solo practitioner with an office in New Haven, where I also am from and live. I serve the judicial districts of Hartford, New Haven, Waterbury, New Britain, Middlesex, Ansonia-Milford, Stamford-Norwalk and Fairfield; and the geographic areas of Bristol, New Haven, Meriden, Hartford, Waterbury, New Britain, Middletown, Norwalk, Milford, Fairfield and Derby.

I defend all criminal and juvenile delinquency charges, including DUI, underage drinking, larceny, burglary, robbery, assault, family violence, drug possession and distribution, weapons possession. I also defend parents and guardians accused of abuse and neglect of children.

On the civil side, I handle accidents, property damage, intentional torts, contract matters, civil rights and probate issues (including wills and powers of attorney).

I go the distance in all cases and pursue appeals in criminal, civil and probate cases and also seek postconviction remedies in criminal and juvenile matters.
