New York City Criminal Defense Attorney
and Former New York City Prosecutors
Dealing with a criminal case in New York City is a frightening experience. If someone accuses you of a criminal offense, illegal act, misdeed, malfeasance, or any criminal misconduct, this could lead to an arrest and subsequent prosecution (legal proceedings). A criminal prosecution, which comes after the initial arrest or desk appearance ticket, carries the risk of jail, license suspension, job loss, court mandated supervision and the loss of personal property. A criminal conviction can lead to a permanent criminal record and can have many other life-altering consequences.
Another way to look at a New York City prosecution is that that the New York City Police Department (40,000 officers and a 4.8 billion budget) and the District Attorney's Office (typically about 500 attorneys and a $80 million budget) are teaming up against you. This puts you at an immediate disadvantage. Never go to criminal court alone.
