If you have a legal problem, we can put our heads together to find the right solution for you.

Criminal defense cases we can handle include but are certainly not limited to:

Penalties You Could Face in New York State If Convicted

The specifics of your criminal case will cause your potential penalties if convicted to vary dramatically but no matter how you approach it, no conviction is beneficial. You will always want to do what you can to challenge the accusations, either by moving for a full dismissal of the case or for a reduction of your sentencing.

If you are convicted of a misdemeanor or a felony, you could be punished with:

  • High fines - The state can collect a few hundred to several thousand dollars from you, depending on the severity of your alleged crime.
  • Incarceration - You might spend months in a county jail or years in state prison. Either way, you will be removed from your home and loved ones for far too long.
  • Probation - You will be placed on a “watch list” after you finish any incarceration sentencing. Any additional mistake could slam you with escalated charges and penalties.
  • Reputation damage - Employers and educational institutions unfairly stay away from people with a criminal record. If you are convicted of a sex crime, you will also have to register with national sex offender lists, which will further ruin your name and possibly force you to relocate.
  • License suspension - Nearly all traffic citations or DWI convictions will strip you of your license suspension for a year or more. If a driving-related criminal violation, such as vehicular manslaughter, is tied to your conviction, you can also lose your license.
  • Other - You may be inconvenienced with hours and hours of community service, forced to attend counseling or educational courses, or even have to pay a monthly tax to have an ignition interlock device or house arrest bracelet.
