About J. Christopher Llinas

J. Christopher ("Chris") Llinas graduated from Franklin Pierce Law Center (now the University of New Hampshire School of Law) in 1997, clerked from now-Chief Justice Leigh I. Saufley of the Maine Supreme Judicial Court, and, over the years, has worked as a legal aid lawyer, public defender, state's attorney, in-house corporate counsel, and private criminal defense attorney. Over that time, he has established a strong and successful track record of experience before the DMV, trial courts, and appellate courts, first in Maryland and now in Connecticut. In 2017, Chris moved from Maryland to Connecticut, where he quickly established himself as a strong advocate in the realm of DUI defense, just as he had been in Maryland, both at trial and on appeal. As well, upon arriving in Connecticut, Chris began doing immigration removal work, as he had developed, over time, a strong knowledge of "crimmigration," which characterizes the intersection between criminal and immigration law. At present, Chris serves as the Connecticut State Delegate for NCDD, acting a liaison between the organization and its Connecticut membership. Chris stands ready and available to assist you with your Connecticut DUI.

However, there is a growing body of evidence to suggest breathalyzers are not a reliable tool when it comes to measuring how intoxicated a...
