John Ianelli, P.C.

  Ianelli Law Criminal Defense Attorney


Our dedication to the defense of drunken driving accusations has led to countless successes in the courtroom. Having an attorney with DWI and DUI case experience can greatly improve your chances of a lesser charge or even a nonconviction. Ianelli Law can advise you on how to get your driver’s license back, how possible police misconduct can affect your case, and what do to if the arresting officer did not follow the proper alcohol breath test procedures. Favorable results sometimes can be achieved even in cases with extremely high breath test readings.

Drug Possessions

It is a crime to willfully possess illegal controlled substances such as marijuana, methamphetamines, cocaine, LSD, and heroin. These laws also cover the possession of ingredients and chemicals used in drug manufacturing as well as certain tools related to drug use. Although drug possession laws vary according to drug type and amount, possession of small quantities may be deemed simple possession. Possession of large amounts may result in a charge of presumed possession with intent to distribute. Ianelli Law can professionally and effectively represent those who have been accused of drug possession.


A misdemeanor is defined as a “lesser” criminal act, but make no mistake, it is a crime. If you’ve been charged with a misdemeanor, you may be punished with hefty fines that will cause financial difficulties or additional penalties. Ianelli Law can greatly assist with misdemeanor cases, increasing the chances of a lesser fine or punishment.

Felony Charges

A felony is classified as a serious crime. A person accused of a felony could be punished with a conviction of imprisonment in excess of one year as well as a life record, probation or parole, significant fines, loss of certain rights and occupational licensing, and even the right to vote. Depending on your case, the severity of the punishment is related to the degree of the harm done, any mitigating/aggravating circumstances, the attitude of the community and court toward this type of crime, your prior convictions (if any), and whether a weapon was used. Of course, this is not limited to the aforementioned; however, Ianelli Law can guide those who are convicted of a felony through the complex legal system and help to make this time as bearable as possible.

Traffic Infractions

Many minor traffic offenses include, but are not limited to, speeding, not wearing your seat belt, talking on your mobile phone while driving, and operating an uninsured motor vehicle. Your infraction will likely be recorded and presented to you in the form of a ticket. If you receive too many traffic tickets, you may lose your driving privileges and/or risk incurring a significant increase in your insurance premiums or even loss of coverage. While it may be easy to disregard such tickets, doing so only compounds potential problems and minimizes your chances of a lesser fine or even dismissal. Let Ianelli Law assist you with your traffic infractions to help ensure you receive the minimum possible punishment in a swift and timely manner.
