Queens Criminal Defense Lawyer

Former Assistant District Attorneys & Aggressive Family Law Attorneys

When you need help with a matter pertaining to criminal defense or a traffic violation, you can turn to the Queens criminal attorneys at Proto, Sachs & Brown, LLP for the legal advice and assistance you need. At our firm, our lawyers offer more than 65 years of collective legal experience. What's more, our attorneys are former Assistant District Attorneys; this means we have an advantage when negotiating a plea bargain with prosecutors and in the courtroom before a judge or jury as compared to other criminal lawyers who don't possess the same level of experience. Additionally, we have authored several criminal defense and DUI defense books that have made the National Bestseller's List!

When choosing a legal advocate to represent you when facing criminal charges on the state or federal level, evaluate your attorney's:

  • Knowledge
  • Education
  • Experience
  • Negotiation skills
  • Ability to speak persuasively before a judge and jury

As former prosecutors we have insight into how the prosecution acts, we know where to look for holes in their case and we are able to predict their maneuvers and plan accordingly, all of which is done for our client's sole benefit.

We are more than your average attorneys who specialize in criminal defense matters and traffic violations and are members of the criminal court and family court assigned counsel programs. The Assigned Counsel Program seeks our help when individuals are financially unable to obtain their own legal representation on appeal. What we do is provide quality legal representation in criminal and family law cases to individuals who are impoverished and cannot afford proper legal counsel. As passionate lawyers devoted to upholding the rights of New York citizens, we take this job very seriously and ensure that our clients voices are heard before the courts.

Queens Traffic Court

New York City is infamous for its pesky parking tickets, aggressive taxi drivers and inexperienced drivers. In an over-crowded area such as Queens, it's all too easy to get pulled over and ticketed for "reckless driving," driving too fast for conditions, or passing a stopped school bus. While this city may be difficult to drive in and traffic conditions can make one impatient, those annoying traffic tickets add violation points to your driving record.

The problem is when you accrue 11 or more points in an 18-month period, your license can get suspended or revoked. Unfortunately, in an area such as Queens, it's not hard to acquire 11 points within 18 months, especially when reckless driving is 5 points, and speeding from 21 to 30 mph above the speed limit is 6 points. By paying your ticket you are essentially admitting guilt, and by ignoring your ticket and not answering it, your driver's license gets suspended. Therefore, the best plan of action is to contact us immediately so we can go to court for you and challenge your ticket and fight for reduced if not eliminated penalties.

The traffic court is located at 25-00 Whitestone Expy, Flushing, NY 11354. They can be reached at (718) 488-5710. 

At Proto, Sachs & Brown, LLP, our legal team truly cares about you, your future and your family. We are a client-focused law firm that is driven by results. We don't measure our success by the number of clients we represent, but instead we measure our success by the amount of people we sincerely help. Regardless if you are facing DWI charges or homicide charges, or if you are filing for divorce or need to challenge you traffic ticket, we are committed to providing you with the highest level of legal representation at all costs.
