A criminal charge hanging over your head can be a frightening and stressful experience. Whether you were arrested or received a criminal summons to appear on charges in a criminal court,
You have questions and serious worries about what will happen to you.
That’s where we can help.
The two main questions facing people charged with a crime in New York are:
1) What will happen to me if I am found guilty?
2) What can I do to try to defend and protect myself from any serious consequences?
We can help you answer both questions.
What Will Happen to me If I am Found Guilty?
We have provided as much general information as we can provide on specific New York criminal offenses and penalties.
But general information and research will only get you so far. That’s why our attorney’s provide a free criminal case evaluation and consultation to help you understand what you are realistically facing in the best case, worst case, and most likely outcome if you are found guilty, or agree to a plea deal.
Misdemeanor charges may result in up to a year in jail in the most serious cases.
For New York felony sentences for a conviction or guilty finding on a criminal charge, felony penalty calculations that include jail time are complicated.
The criminal penal code of New York categorizes all criminal charges as different levels of Felony (A, B, C, D Violent, Non-Violent),Misdemeanor (A, B), and violation (non-criminal).
The formulas are elaborate, based on many factors about the charges and any priors. See my New York Criminal Sentences page for more details.
In addition, judges are given a broad range of discretion in sentencing in many cases. This can be good or bad, depending on the judge you end up with.
A wide sentencing range makes it even more critical to have a defense attorney with a strong reputation for sentencing arguments, and deal making with the prosecutors, to get the best possible result for you.
What can I do to try to Defend and Protect Myself from the Most Serious Consequences?
The first thing you need to do is understand your options. Getting some basic information about how the New York criminal justice system works is step one. Understanding the general penalties you are facing is step two. But for the most part, to get a realistic analysis of your situation, you need to talk to an experienced New York Criminal Defense Attorney.
That’s where we come in. Our attorneys are ready to talk with you about your case. We can answer your questions, talk about what you are up against.
What Can my Defense Lawyer Do for me?
A good lawyer will know when it’s time to fight, and when it’s time to deal. While being prepared to go to trial is a excellent tactic to pressure the DA, sometimes you really want to just to get things over with as quickly as possible.
For example, if you are facing a misdemeanor marijuana possession charge, any chance to get that reduced to a non-criminal violation is probably worth jumping at.
Getting out of criminal court with no permanent criminal recordshould be considered a win for you. So your attorney should press for any deals or reduction in charges that are in your interest.
Other times, when the charges are serious, and no reasonable deal is offered, the only option is to fight. So you’ll want a criminal defense attorney with trial experience, who knows how to argue to a jury or judge, and give you every chance to win.
Our attorneys will give you a realistic assessment of what might happen to you, how likely it is for you to get a good plea deal, and what we can do to help you and make that happen. And we do it as part of a free consultation and evaluation of your criminal case.
How Do I Know Who the Best New York Defense Lawyer is for Me?
The only way to find out who is the best attorney for you is to talk to them. Ask good questions. Find out how they have handled cases like yours. What is their record of success? Are they familiar with the charges? The court where your case is assigned?
Do they listen to you and seem genuinely interested in helping you? Appearing in criminal court is stressful enough, you need to feel comfortable that your attorney knows what he or she is doing, as well as can help you understand what’s happening to reduced your stress level about the proceedings.
Many people speak to a number of attorneys before deciding who they should hire. And that’s ok, it’s your right to do so. Especially in a serious criminal matter that could affect your entire life, and your freedom.
In short, you need an attorney who knows the law backwards and forwards, and can effectively and tenaciously fight for you. And you need someone with whom you can feel comfortable. That you are in good hands, and things are being taken care of as best that they can.
