Having incurred a DUI charge in Connecticut, Joe expertly led me through the entire process of both State and DMV proceedings. Forging a way through the jungle of legal paperwork and process, while remaining in close touch/making himself available whenever I had questions or progress was made. He was also tremendously well informed on the topic of IDEP programs when it came time to find the right one. His assistance was vital to the final outcome of my case.
Attorney Colarusso was excellent in handling my case. I was facing a misdemeanor charge with possible jail time and license suspension. Mr. Colarusso is very experienced, knowlegable, communicates reliably and his expertise and confidence are very comforting. I had never been to court before and I felt my case was in good hands. He is understanding and kind. He informs you very clearly the steps to take for the best possible outcome for your case. I could not be more grateful, in the end my case was dismissed. His fees are fair and he works for you beyond his price. I absolutely recommend his representation.
