The Types Of Charges We Handle

There are different levels of charges in New York: violations, misdemeanors (class A, class B and unclassified), and felonies (A-I, A-II, B, C, D and E). We consider handling various charges on a case-by-case basis. No matter what charges you face, it is in your best interest to consult an experienced, local criminal defense attorney.

Why Competent Legal Representation Is Essential

A criminal charge can have serious, permanent and life-altering consequences. Criminal convictions can impact your ability to obtain and retain certain jobs, result in the suspension or revocation of your driver’s license, and even affect your ability to live in certain places. Felonies come with the potential risk of state incarceration and can impact gun ownership rights. Some convictions can prevent you from entering Canada and other foreign countries. If you are a student, your educational options and eligibility for sports and financial aid can be affected. Even a traffic ticket can affect aspects of your life you may not have considered. It is in your best interest to understand your options. Work with a qualified and proven local criminal defense attorney to protect your rights, freedom and future. Let us assist you in navigating the legal terrain.
