Addressing All Types of Criminal Charges

Our firm defends clients against a wide range of criminal charges, including minor violations, misdemeanors and felonies. Some of the most common charges include the following:

  • Drug crimes (possession, sale, distribution and trafficking of marijuana, cocaine, etc.)
  • Violent crimes (assault, battery, harassment, domestic violence, etc.)
  • Property crimes (theft, shoplifting, burglary, etc.)
  • Sex crimes (rape, sexual assault, etc.)
  • Computer crimes (Internet, pornography, etc.)
  • DWI (drunk driving)

Different people have different criminal defense goals. In some cases, it is possible to attack the prosecutors' evidence and win an acquittal or dismissal of the charges. We are fully prepared to stand up for our clients' rights in these circumstances.

In many cases, we are also able to negotiate alternatives such as drug rehabilitation programs that more effectively address the issues underlying the criminal charges. We are known for devoting significant time and attention to researching options for our criminal defense clients and for aggressively negotiating with prosecutors.

Representing Minors and Young Adults

Our firm has particular experience handling charges against young people, including juvenile delinquency charges against minors — which are heard in family court — and standard criminal charges against young adults, many of whom have never been in trouble with the law before.

We understand the impact that a conviction can have on a young person and will do everything we can to achieve an outcome that keeps your criminal record clean.

If you have been charged with any crime under any circumstances in New York, don't hesitate to contact us to discuss your criminal defense options with an attentive attorney.
