Atty Jerome Paun was referred my case about a yr ago. He had called me to his office to discuss the case. When I had arrived I was greeted immediately by his secretary Kelly, who was extremely welcoming. Atty Paun went over my charges step by step, explaining everything and how serious each of my charges were and how much time each charge held. Being how I had a lengthy criminal past I was facing serious jail time, about 5 yrs. He stood behind me all the way. Any time I called his office, either he or Kelly would call me back the same day. Never leaving me in suspense of what was going on. I was notified of an 18 hr firm jury list (going to start trial that day). Some how, some way Atty Paun got my felony charge brought down to a misdemeanor and walked out of court with a fine. I can not thank him enough. Now my family can rest not having this stress weighing on our minds. If you need a lawyer this is the guy for you. Best is CT. Thanks again Atty Paun!!!!

Finding a lawyer on the internet can be scary. And I live out of state. A relative is in serious trouble. The family is in chaos. A neighbor in my building in NYC is a lawyer. (She's actually kind of a big deal.) I asked her if she could recommend a criminal lawyer in Connecticut. She told me to call Jerome (Jerry) Paun.
I left a message in his office. It was promptly returned by a really nice woman, Kelly. I gave her some information and she looked up the details on her computer. She actually made me feel better. Since I couldn't come into the office, she scheduled a phone consultation for the next day. She said there would be no charge.
Attorney Paun called me at the scheduled time. He spent almost an hour on the phone with me, even though he knew I couldn't be the one to hire him. He had looked up the charges and told me what the punishments could be. He answered all my questions. He was a wealth of knowledge. He even knew the answers to my questions about prison.
He wasn't arrogant or vague or sarcastic. He was kind and extremely knowledgeable. I wanted to cry.
He came highly recommended. After speaking with him, I understand why. I am passing all this information on to my family. I would not hesitate to hire him. He is everything you want a lawyer to be and more.

Attorney Jerome Paun is my personal hero. He came to my rescue during a very desperate time when I thought all hope was gone. I really felt so helpless and frustrated at the same time as I was going to lose an employment opportunity all because I did not realize I had misdemeanor charges for over 5 1/2 years and I did not even know about it until my prospect employer informed me about it!
But from the very start, he showed me what a good and honest defense lawyer does: educate me about what I was up against in razor-sharp precision. I really felt his great confidence about the law and was very upfront with me throughout the process.
Through his many years of experience in defending his clients, he was able to pull me out of the big mess I was in and gave me my life back including a chance to keep a very rewarding job (which I thought I already lost until he came to set me free from my legal predicament). All the charges were dropped and my case was nolled!
If you need an intelligent, trustworthy, and reliable defense attorney, you will be in good hands if Attorney Jerome Paun is on your side. You can feel secure knowing your life rests on his very able hands. I am forever indebted to this courageous man, my personal superhero!
THANK YOU, Attorney Jerome Paun! You are THE BEST!!!

I was charged by police with disorderly conduct and Class B misdemeanor. I donot know Jerome before, just knew him from his website. After I emailed my case to Lawyer Jerome Paun's office, I got an appointment in the next day. I should say his secretary is also very professional and friendly. Jerome analyzed my case in details from basic laws to all possible court decisions, also recommended what I should make the best choice for myself. His advice eliminated all my worries after I went his office in the first meeting with him. I felt that he is an experienced lawyer and will do the best for the customers.
I strongly recommended him if you want find a right lawyer, Jerome is the best one worthy to hire.

Attorney Paun was extremely knowledgable and informative when dealing with my DUI case. He immediately helped calm me down and walked me through the entire process. He explained everything so that I completely understood what was going on and what I would have to deal with. He helped make this terrible process much easier on me. I would higly recommend him to any of my friends and family. I will definitely be seeking his services out in the future if I ever need them.

Jerome and his team where great! I was dealing with an issue from 13 years ago and was dealing with it from another state. Attorney Paun and his team kept me in the loop at all times. My case was unique to say the least, but attorney Paun knew the laws, he knew the intricacies of the court room and had a good reputation amongst his piers. I highly recommend his services to anyone, attorney Paun is a no nonsence lawyer, who will shoot you straight and wont sugar coat it in the process!

The time was approximately 6pm on a thursday,and I contacted attorney Jerome Paun believing that his office might be closed, but to my surprise it was not. AttorneyPaun answered all the questions that I had prepared for him to no avail, not only did he answer all my questions,he offered some pertinent information without hesitation. If I ever need someone to represent myself, Attorney Paun has shown himself in a short time to be very knowledgeable.

I had the unfortunate occasion to require a criminal defense attorney who worked with minors. Enter into the equation, Attorney Jerome W. Paun and the matter was handled both professionally and with expediency. As a parent of four children never before faced with such a situation Attorney Paun was informative, taking a great deal of time explaining the laws to both my son and I. We were well informed of all the potential outcomes and my sons rights and obligations to the court system. Attorney Paun was well versed in the juvenile court system and assisted us in making the best of an unpleasant, potentially serious situation. My sonâ€™s outcome was as Attorney Paun had anticipated. Although I hope never to require his services again, I would wholeheartedly recommend Attorney Paun to others in need of a seasoned professional attorney.

Many, many years ago I acted selfishly & foolishly, and the resulting legal fallout has followed me around for a long time. I decided a legal pardon was a step I needed to take to finally break free from the past, and validate myself as a worthy person, having learned from my mistakes. I undertook this pardon process with a great deal of anxiety...knowing I would possibly have to revisit a part of my life I wish I could simply erase, and forget about forever. If only it were so simple.
I decided to not walk down this path alone. An attorney I was consulting with on a different matter suggested I seek a pardon, and forwarded Attorney Pauns contact information. A meeting was set, and the process began. Jerome Paun not only provided me with the legal counsel I needed, but equally important, his honest, empathetic demeanor gave me the confidence to move forward with this personally painful process. His guidance was essential in order for me to move past my fears and anxiety. I highly recommend Attorney Paun. Remember, you need never walk alone on a difficult path.

I am an attorney in the local area and I was uncertain about some legal isssues that were put before me. I confronted attorney Paun in the middle of his hectic schedule and he was eager to answer my questions. He was extremely knowledgeable with his advice and his advice truly helped to achieve a successful outcome. Other lawyers would have acted annoyed if I were to confront them with legal concerns but certainly not attorney Pa un. God forbid I were ever to get into trouble he would be the lawyer I would turn to without hesitation! Thank you attorney Paun.

I don't know what my family and I would have done without Jerry's advice and meticulous preparation with regard to our needs. I can't say enough good things about this caring, understanding, skilled attorney. I highly recommend him to all of my friends and those in need of good counsel. Thanks so much, Jerry!

I found Mr Paun on the internet when I needed assistance in clearing up a driving/criminal matter in Connecticut. My problem was compounded by the fact that i live in Florida. Mr Paun handled my case effeciently and always let me know what exactly was going on. Both Mr. Paun and his secretary, Robin were more than happy to answer my questions. I found My Pauns legal fee to be inexpensive as well.

Jerry was recommended to me by a very close friend that I trust. I am very happy I went with his recommendation! Jerry and Robin always got back to me in a timely manner and were able to answer all of my questions. Thank you very much Jerry and Robin!

I was arrested for DUI and possession of a firearm while under the influence $2500 to him and $1350 in court fees and I have a year of suspended probation and I had to use my A.R. and A.E.P. but I still have the right to poses a firearm

No one wants to have a problem with the law, but if it happens...Jerry is the one you want in your corner.
We had no experience with Juvenile issues, so were quite overwhelmed. Jerry explained clearly, answered endless questions, and we left his office feeling confident that we were in good hands. Jerry is professional and knowledgeable. He was there when we needed him, and the whole experience was actually bearable! Dealing with Robin in the office, or by phone, was always painless. She was very helpful, very efficient and always pleasant.
We needed Jerry for several separate incidences which occured over a period of 3 years. Both Jerry and Robin were quite accessable by phone, or always called back in a timely manner. THAT was much appreciated.
Thank you both, so much, for helping and guiding us through a difficult time.
