Edward Palermo Top Lawyer

  • Will I go to jail?
  • Will I have a criminal record?
  • Will I lose my license?
  • What happens when I go to Court?
  • How much will this cost me?

As a Suffolk County Criminal and DWI Lawyer, I hear these questions and many others every day.  The first thing to do is relax, and take a deep breath.  While criminal charges are extremely stress-full, worrying never made anything better.  I believe in putting things in perspective.  You are only ACCUSED of a crime!  The presumption of innocence is the bedrock of our criminal justice system as well as our entire democracy.

Hiring the right criminal attorney is very important to a successful outcome in your case.  I have been in the criminal law trenches on Long Island and New York City on a daily basis for the last two decades!  Many lawyers who have general practices will dabble in criminal law.  Avoid them at all costs.  A criminal case is much to serious to leave in the hands of a non-specialist.  There is nothing about your case that can surprise me.  I have seen it all in the past 20 years.

I have forged terrific relationships with the judges and prosecutors who handle criminal matters in Suffolk and Nassau Counties. These relationships are incredibly important and I value them as an asset when representing my clients.  When you retain me you get a Suffolk County Criminal and DWI Lawyer with the professional connections and concentrated experience to get the result you need.
