Criminal Law

Criminal Defense

We handle all criminal matters in the State and Federal courts throughout New York including DWI/DUI, drug related offenses, shoplifting, theft, assault and traffic tickets.

As a former NYPD Detective, I have the necessary investigative experience to handle arraignments, hearings and trials at all levels of the criminal justice system, and criminal defense in immigration removal proceedings.

When you are facing criminal prosecution, you can’t afford anything less than aggressive representation.  Whether you are charged with a misdemeanor that can ruin your criminal record forever or a felony that can land you in prison for many years, your primary concern should not be attorney’s fees, but rather the quality of representation you will receive.

If you or a loved one have been arrested and charged with a crime in New York, or have learned that you may be the subject or target of a NY State or Federal criminal investigation, the most important decision you can make is deciding who will represent you in fighting against these charges or putting a halt to the investigation. Being accused of a crime is a very serious matter. And having a criminal conviction on your record will have long-standing and devastating consequences for you and your family.
