An Aggressive Defense for Your Criminal Charges in NYC
There are several reasons that connecting with our firm is the right thing to do. Beyond our Superb rating, we have served at hundreds of criminal trials, and we have a background serving in the Kings County District Attorney's Office, where we gained experience in how the prosecution operates when seeking a conviction. When we take on a case, our goal is to protect your rights as a defendant. If you have been the victim of police brutality, a rights violation in search and seizure, an illegal arrest, or other error, we will bring the actions of the police to the attention of the court and pursue a full case dismissal. The police in New York City make serious errors every day, and your case may be open to a dismissal for certain actions that have been taken in the police stop, in searching your person or your home or car, or in the arrest or interrogation process.
One of the most critical points in a criminal case is the arraignment. We serve as counsel for those who are arrested and need an attorney to protect them in questioning, and to represent them at an arraignment, the hearing at which you will be formally charged. This court hearing is a critical point in the criminal justice process, and without aggressive defense counsel at your side, there could be disastrous results.
Do You Need Representation for Divorce in New York City?
Tension in the home is very difficult for families to experience, and at times they may decide a divorce is the best option. If you are considering filing for divorce in NYC, we encourage you to contact our office to discuss the details before you take the step to file. What you do prior to filing divorce could impact a court decision, such as moving out of the family home, moving assets, or other similar actions. There are many cases that reach resolution through negotiating a settlement with the opposing attorney, which allow you to avoid the stress of a trial. Mediation is one of these methods and can be used to help reach more equal compromises for the family, especially when the custody of children is involved.
