NYC Criminal Defense Attorney
Former Manhattan Prosecutor Fighting for You
Being arrested or investigated is frightening. An arrest in New York City
carries the risk of incarceration while you await trial and other risks.
These other risks include the risk of jail, loss of your driver's
or professional license, employment problems, immigration or international
travel problems, eviction, loss of access to your bank account, and other
problems. A criminal conviction can make matters worse by making the initial
problems caused by your arrest to become permanent or by adding additional
penalties such as incarceration or by giving you a criminal record which
could trigger other consequences. In court, things can move quickly. At
your arraignment, what you say or don't say can mean the difference
between success and failure. The criminal court judge and prosecuting
attorney often have extensive experience handling cases like yours but
they are working hard for an outcome that could be catastrophic to you.
Whether you have been arrested before or this is your first time, the
steps you take in your defense can last a lifetime.
Getting your case dismissed is our top priority. Lance Fletcher, a former prosecutor at the Manhattan District Attorney's
Office, is dedicated to the defense of people charged with crimes in New

response to your charges. No two cases are the same and so our strong
track record of success shows our ability to find a way to get our client’s
charges dismissed or reduced time and time again. Depending on your situation,
getting your charges dismissed or reduced is a question of filing the
proper motion at the right time, successfully negotiating with the prosecuting
attorney, or winning at trial. The Law Offices of Lance Fletcher’s
consistent record of success has earned him respect throughout New York,
in the National Trial Lawyer’s Association, client reviews and testimonials

Criminal Defense. For our clients, a criminal charge in New York is a catastrophic disruption
in their daily routine. Many are unable to sleep or concentrate at work.
After meeting with us during the initial consultation, our clients often
report finding peace of mind. Criminal defense is about more than the
system, law, or best/worst case outcomes. It is about you. It is about
getting you back to the life that you had before the arrest. During the
initial consultation, we are able to give our clients an honest view of
their situation and uncover defenses that our clients often didn’t
realize existed. This is because a winning defense is often buried in
the facts of the case. Criminal defense is as much about criminal law
as it is about applying frank common sense to a given set of facts. In
one of our client’s cases, we were able to get a dismissal by pointing
out several problems with the State’s case. In another, we were
able to get a dismissal by focusing on one serious problem in the State’s
case. Although every case is different, the path to success and getting
you back to where you were before your arrest starts with your consultation.
