Top-Rated NYC Trial Lawyer
Our firm is focused on case development and presentation. The first step is to meet with us - as soon as possible. Let us help you through this difficult time! We will stand by you no matter how grim your case may appear. Whether you are accused of DUI or you are filing for a divorce, the earlier we get involved in your case, the better.
Have You Been Arrested for a Crime?
When facing charges for a misdemeanor or felony offense, the trial skills of your New York City criminal lawyer are a critical element in the outcome of your case. You cannot take chances in cases in which your freedom could be taken from you by the criminal justice system. Our 24 hour criminal attorney's early involvement in your case could mean the difference between freedom and a conviction.
When we take on a case, our goal is to protect your rights as a defendant. 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 during your arrest, in searching your person or your home or car, or in the interrogation process.
One of the most critical points in a criminal case is the arraignment. We can serve as immediate counsel for arrested individuals. We are available 24/7 and can provide the formidable advocacy you need to protect you in questioning and represent you at arraignment. The arraignment 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, a divorce may be 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.
Whether you are seeking a simple divorce or you expect to have every detail vigorously challenged, we are prepared to protect your rights throughout the process. With extensive experience in both contested and uncontested divorces, you can trust that our New York Criminal Defense Attorney is equipped to walk you through the process.
