Why Do I Need a Queens Criminal Defense Lawyer?

Involving a lawyer is one of the first steps you should take. No matter the nature of the crime you have been accused of committing or the circumstances surrounding your case, you have the right to legal counsel.

With the unique insight of a former prosecutor on your case, you have the added benefit of a professional who knows how the "other side" thinks and works. The firm also takes on appeals for those who have been wrongfully convicted and sentenced and can provide legal counsel if you need to deal with an arrest warrant or bench warrant. No matter the type or severity of criminal charges against you, you can count on the firm to provide a powerful defense on your behalf.

The defense of sex crimes is another key focus of the firm, including:

Due to sex offender registration requirements and the heavy penalties sex crime convictions carry, it is important to obtain the best possible defense, as these may affect a defendant for the rest of his or her life.

Each of these requires a unique approach based on the severity of allegations and the evidence at hand, not to mention the specific issues that will influence what type of defense will be most effective in court.

Have you been charged with a federal crime in Queens, NY?

If you have been charged with a federal crime, your case must enter the federal legal system rather than the state of New York's. This system can be more complicated, requiring different procedures, paperwork or other necessary steps that an inexperienced defendant will likely not be familiar with.

In some cases, due to the power a government agency can hold, a defendant may be held in detention without trial for an undetermined period of time, or may possibly be subjected to extreme interrogation. A competent New York City federal defense lawyer may be able to provide insight into the process and a level of confidence going into a federal trial that you may not have otherwise had, improving your chances at a positive case result.

If you would like answers specific to your unique situation, contact our Queens criminal defense lawyers today at (888) 502-8461 to request a free case evaluation.

I was arrested. Should I talk to the police?

If you have been taken into custody, it is important to exercise your Fifth Amendment right to stay silent. Tell the officers or investigators that you will not answer any questions without an attorney present. It is crucial that you do not speak to the police without the representation of a skilled Queens criminal defense attorney who can help protect your rights and guard you from making any self-incriminating statements.

What happens if I am not read my rights at arrest?

Law enforcement officers have a responsibility to make those taken into custody aware of their rights. If the arresting officer failed to read your Miranda Rights, anything you said could be made inadmissible as evidence before the court. Discuss your case with a knowledgeable Queens criminal defense lawyer immediately to determine your legal options if you were not made aware of your rights.

What are the consequences for violating probation?

Violating probation can happen in a number of ways, depending on your specific terms. You may be required to attend classes, pass drug tests, meet regularly with a probation officer or other requirements, and if you break the terms, you could be immediately taken into custody or a warrant may be issued for your arrest. Once you are arrested, you could face heavy fines, harsher probation terms, the loss of probation, incarceration, or the reinstatement of your original sentence. Call a skilled New York City criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible if you have violated probation because they can advocate on your behalf and help you seek reduced penalties.

Why do I need to hire a Queens criminal defense attorney?

A conviction for a criminal offense will have very damaging effects upon your relationships, career, freedoms, and future opportunities, which is why you need to be confident that your lawyer has the skill and determination to effectively challenge your charges. Public defenders often handle numerous cases at one time, and many are overworked and overwhelmed. A private defense attorney can provide your case with the personalized attention and detailed investigation needed to build a powerful defense for your trial, and they will be available to answer your questions and protect your rights at every step of your proceedings.

My child was arrested. Will they go to jail?

The circumstances of the alleged crime will influence whether your child's potential penalties include incarceration, but the juvenile court system is typically focused on rehabilitation rather than punishment. It is vital that you enlist a knowledgeable Queens criminal defense lawyer who can fight to keep your child's case in the family court system and advocate for their rehabilitation before the judge.

I was already convicted. Is there anything I can do?

If your right to a fair trial was violated at some point during your case, do not wait another moment to speak to an experienced lawyer. Your Queens criminal defense lawyer can help you file an appeal if the prosecution or the court made any type of legal error that had significant impact upon your verdict. If your appeal is accepted, the appellate court will assess the circumstances of your trial and decide whether to uphold the lower court's original ruling or overturn the verdict. A number of different situations can qualify for an appeal, so it is crucial that you discuss your case with a seasoned law firm to determine your legal options.
