Expertise and effective strategy underpins every phase of the case
When our firm decides to take a case, our strong commitment to the client lays the groundwork. And we proceed with expert handling in all phases of the criminal justice process.
The investigative phase of our representation begins the moment a client hires us. Our legal team delves into police reports, obtains forensic testimony, and identifies weaknesses in the prosecution’s case. We work closely with our clients, discussing events and gathering all details pertinent to the defense. Hard work and a thorough approach opens doors to uncovering vital evidence. To convict in a criminal case, the prosecution must prove that the defendant is guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. The primary role of a criminal defense attorney is to unearth evidence that creates doubt and plants seeds for acquittal.
Authorities do not question our clients unless our lawyers are at their side. Expert handling of the media prevents clients from making statements that could jeopardize their case.
Effective strategies underpin each stage of the process, from pre-trial motions through discovery, jury selection, courtroom presentation, cross-examination, and closing argument. Likewise, all statements released to the media are products of intense scrutiny, deliberation to create a desired effect, and overall case strategy.
Equal commitment to clients in all types of criminal cases
Whether defending a client against misdemeanor DWI (driving while intoxicated case) charges, felony drug crime, or fighting for a defendant’s freedom in homicide allegations, the outcome of our efforts shapes the individual’s life. This is fact, and a fact that our criminal defense law firm in New York greatly respects. Our lawyers take their jobs seriously and commit to doing their very best for each client.
