The Criminal Defense You Need

Have you recently been criminally charged? No matter if you are dealing with a criminal charge for DUI, an internet crime, theft or a violent crime, if you are currently at risk for conviction you cannot afford to be satisfied with subpar legal assistance. You need to be sure that you are aggressively being defended so that you have the best possible chance of success. At our firm, we are widely recognized for our tireless and effective defense. Should you choose to work with a criminal defense attorney from our firm, you can be confident that we are doing everything possible that can be done to protect you.

When you are arrested or charged with a crime, there are a number of situations that might occur. The outcome is based upon what crime has actually been charged, how much evidence is available and valid, whether or not the police and courtroom officials followed proper procedures, and the strategy of the accused's defense. When these elements are combined, there are a few outcomes that may play out. First, a criminal investigation is conducted but no arrest is made and the issue is over. Second, an arrest does occur but the case is dismissed on grounds of illegal seizure of the evidence. The third possible outcome is that the person who is charged and arrested enters into a plea bargain with the government in order to receive a lighter sentence. A fourth possibility is that the accused is brought to trial and is acquitted by the jury. The final possibility is that a person is brought to trial, convicted, and sentenced to serve time in prison.

In order to receive the best of these possible outcomes, you should have a lawyer at your side every step of the way. In every trial, you are innocent until proven guilty. Sometimes though, it is difficult to convince a jury of this reality. More often than not, guilt, rather than innocence, is assumed. This makes it unlikely to have the fair, unbiased trial that you are entitled to. With the help of our associates, you can fight for your right to a fair trial. No American should be deprived on this right. Each and every case must be proved beyond any reasonable doubt no matter the circumstances or the crime. We will make sure this standard is upheld. To find out the best way to go about defending your case, contact our firm and we will investigate your case to the fullest extent.

A skilled New York criminal defense lawyer can provide you or your loved one with the legal counsel that you need to get through this situation. Time is of the essence in immigration issues, and we are standing by to help you with immediate guidance and answers to your questions.
