I have been representing the rights of accused persons in State Courts in Connecticut since 1989. Call me the moment you are aware that you or your loved one have come under a criminal investigation. An accused person has an absolute right to remain silent in the face of criminal accusations against them  and a right to counsel during any criminal investigation. Most people believe that they can resolve the matter by tellng police their side of the of the story. Nothing could be further from the truth in most cases. Police are trained questioners. You are at a huge disadvantage when you voluntarily choose to speak with them during a criminal investigation regardless of any assurances made to you. Providing any information to the police while you are under a criminal, DCF, or School investigation for the alleged commission of a crime may actually result in the use of totally innocent facts provided by you to corroborate the criminal complaint against you, thereby forming the basis for the probable cause necessary to secure a warrant for your arrest. If you or a loved one are the subject of a criminal investigation call Attorney Favreau. In many cases the most crucial stage of the representation is prior to arrest during the investigation phase. If you have already been arrested it is not too late. Call Attorney Favreau. I have effectively represented hundreds of people accused of crime at all stages of the criminal proceding for many years in many different Courts throughout Connecticut.  No case is too big or too small, including but not limited to, Murder, Manslaughter, Sexual Assault, Date Rape, Statutory Rape, Assault and Domestic Violence, Burglary, Larceny, Drug offenses, Breach of Peace, Criminal Mischief, Embezzelment, and other serious criminal and motor vehicle matters such as DUI as well as Juvenile matters and infractiions or traffic tickets. I have years of experience effectively representing clients at all stages of the criminal proceeding either to minimize the consequences of  criminal conduct which an accused person has admitted or  alternatively in an effort to exonerate the accused person at a trial before the Court or a Jury. I also handle certain post judgment matters such as Pardon Applications and Probabtion Violations. I am AV Rated by Martindale-Hubbell for the past 6 years and was selected to the list of Connecticiut Super Lawyers. The consequences of criminal involvement with the law are too serious for you, your family, and your loved ones to try to go it alone. My office is conveniently loated off of I-84 at exit 65 in the Vernon Professional Building. Less than 20 minutes from UCONN and only about 5 minutes from Superior Court, GA19 at Rockville. College students are particularly vulnerable during any police investigation due to their interest in remaining in good standing with their repspective University and the particular University's Student Code of Conduct often triggered by an arrest for even a minor criminal matter. Call me today for a free and confidential  consultation. You'll be glad you did!

Highly Recommend
Attorney Favreau did a great job of making my court process run smoothly and efficiently, answering any and all questions along the way. She truly prioritizes her clients and is incredibly knowledgeable. She made sure myself, as well as my parents, were comfortable in understanding each step going forward.

I recommend her
Pamala is great at what she does. she helped me with two pending cases I had in two different courts. She didn't continue with my recent case till she made sure the other one was dropped. She represented me to the best of her ability. I truely recommend her.

Aggressive Attorney
I have needed a defense attorney twice in my life and can tell you that there are two types; lawyers and then there are fighters. Pam Favreau is a warrior. Even before my court date Pam's style gave me confidence that everything was going to be okay. I felt like I had my own personal guardian and that clearing my mistake was her most important mission! On my court date, I watched other attorneys, similar to my previous one, acting timidly as they defended their clients. I thought to myself how glad I was to have chosen Pam and also how I wish she had been my attorney during my first run in with the law. Thank You Pam, you don't just defend. you stop at nothing to get us out of a jam!!

Exceptional Lawyer
Attorney Favreau did an amazing job representing my case over ten years ago. Then just recently she was able to assist me in getting me a full pardon. She has always been professional and has amazing customer service. If you are in need of an attorney Attorney Favreau is the one to hire.

Highly recommmend
Excellent attorney to deal with when your too far away to help your own child away at school. She knows how to get the job done and she does. Free consultation on the phone and I knew I had the right person to help my son out. Her fees were more than reasonable when she was dealing with a delicate situation at hand. She knew how to be patient with the situation and knew how to handle a nervous parent at the same time. I hope I Never have to use her again, but if I did, she would be the first attorney I would call!

Attorney Favreau came to the nursing home a family member was in. With compassion, patiences, and understanding took much of her time to listen. She was professional and sympathetic in her explanation of his situation. She then directed him to taking care of his needs. I would recommend Attorney Favreau to anyone.

I would recommend Pam as a viable option if you needed an attorney. She was very honest and straight forward with me about my situation. Also she has the required knowledge in her field of expertise. I would highly recommend her if you are in need of her services.
