John Kaloidis is a hard nosed and gritty attorney who only knows one thing and that is what is best for his client and what is right is worth fighting for. He is aggressive and fights hard for his client. I was a defendant in an automobile accident in which another person was seriously injured. I was charged with a DUI and also a felony because of the severity of the injured person's condition. I was faced with the very real possibility of going to jail. John took on my case not just because it meant more business for him but because he truly believed in the wrongfulness of the severe charges that I was facing. I was charged with being under the influence of alcohol and drugs thus leading to the charge of not only negligence but wrecklessness as well. This was the first criminal charge of any kind I had ever received in my life, the first automobile accident in my life and the only charge of any kind related to drugs and/or alcohol. John took on my case because he believed in me and he believed in the integrity of the legal system which in my case needed to be upheld. Attorney Kaloidis truly believed that those charges were unfounded because of wrong results of faulty medical tests administered to me and the lack of evidence of any abuse of drugs of any kind. The truth of the matter is that I was on prescription medications which were closely monitored by several doctors and were never abused by me at any time. John always told me in regards to the severe charges that he just doesn't see it and by faith in me and in his own abilities he took on the system aggressively. After all was said and done I never received any jail time and was put on probation for two years. In my eyes that was all due to John's believing that something wrongful was happening here and he needed to correct it. Not just for me but for anyone who would be facing a similar situation. That's the sign of a great attorney as well as a great person. That's who John Kaloidis is. I would wholeheartedly recommend Attorney Kaloidis to anyone.

Criminal lawyers are not something you envision needing in your life until you are faced with something unimaginable. John was recommended to me by an another attorney in Waterbury, who is a very dear friend of mine. That is something you don't take lightly, another attorney recommending another whom they would want to represent them. John was very calming, reassuring, honest and direct throughout every aspect of my case. Needless to say, my summer was not what I expected it to be. However, John Kaloidis, made it clear that I hired him to worry for me and to let him do his job. John called me countless nights just to keep me at ease with my case circumstances. John called me while he was on vacation, always took my calls, emails and inquiries seriously and handled me with courtesy and respect. I am grateful his is in my corner and on my side. I am grateful for what he was able to do for me and my family. I would not hesitate to work with John again should I ever need him.

I highly recommend Mr. Kaloidis as a lawyer. He went above and beyond during one of the most stressful times in my life. I received a DUI a few years back in CT and at the time was living out of state. Mr. Kaloidis was knowledgeable about law, informed me of my options, was present at all my hearings and speeded along the process as much as possible. He helped me resolve my case outside of CT so I didn't even have to return a year later to stand before the judge. What I really appreciated about Mr. Kaloidis was his effective communication skills. You won't be waiting a week for a call back from this lawyer. For my first (and only) offense, he definitely offered calm to my storm. Thanks again!
