Aggressive Defense Against New York City Prosecution

When selecting a criminal lawyer to represent you, you simply cannot go wrong with a former Assistant District Attorney who has prosecuted criminal cases. We know that our insight into the criminal justice system is valuable, and so are the important relationships we've built with local-area prosecutors and judges alike. Sometimes when it comes to negotiating a plea bargain in a drug crime or a homicide case, you attorney's rapport with the prosecutor can make all the difference.

We handle a wide range of misdemeanor and felony matters on both the state and federal levels. While the vast majority of crimes are criminalized under state laws, some crimes are criminalized under federal legislation of the U.S. Code, in these cases federal charges can result in decades in a federal prison and millions of dollars in fines.

Whether you are facing charges for any of the following, we can provide you with superior legal representation regardless of the nature of your charges:

If you are facing a legal issue in regards to criminal charges, family law or a traffic violation, we urge you to contact a New York City attorney from our firm.

Crime in New York City

When it comes to crimes of violence, New York City is ranked above the United States’ average. Residents of New York City are frequently made aware of the dangers associated with living in the city and the police department does what it can to keep them safe from crime. Because of this, prosecution is often very tough when it comes to those who are arrested under allegation of a criminal offense. The Criminal Court of the City of New York will handle the criminal case against you. They hear cases involving misdemeanors and preliminary hearings in felony cases.

Below is the contact information for the court:

  • Phone: (646) 386-4500
  • Administrative Judge: Hon. Melissa C. Jackson
  • Deputy Administrative Judge: Hon. Alexander B. Jeong
