Member Of The National Top 100 Trial Lawyers

As a Riverhead Criminal Lawyer/Riverhead DWI Lawyer, I hear these questions as well as many others every day. The first thing you need to do is relax. Take a deep breath. I know how stressful criminal charges can be. But I’m a firm believer in putting things into perspective. You have merely been ACCUSED of committing a crime. The Presumption of Innocence is the bedrock of our criminal justice system. I will make sure that it is given to you!

Hiring the right criminal attorney is so crucial to a positive outcome. I have been in the criminal law trenches in Suffolk County, Nassau County and New York City for the last 20 years! A lot of lawyers with general practices will dabble in criminal law. Avoid them at all costs. A criminal case is much too serious to leave in the hands of a non-specialist. No matter what your case is, or what’s involved, it won’t surprise me. I have seen it all in the past 22 years.

I’ve forged honorable relationships with both judges and prosecutors. These relationships are incredibly important when it comes to criminal cases. I value them as an asset when representing my clients.

Riverhead Criminal Lawyer/Riverhead DWI Lawyer Edward Palermo Named TOP ONE PERCENT in the Nation!

I was selected to the Nation’s Top One Percent by the National Association of Distinguished Counsel, a national association of lawyers. According to the NADC, all selections to the Top One Percent are vetted by a research team, a blue ribbon panel of attorneys and a judicial review board. “By virtue of the incredible selectivity of our appointment process, only the top one percent of attorneys in the United States are awarded membership in the NADC.”

Selection to the Top One Percent is a tremendous honor. As a Riverhead Criminal Lawyer/Riverhead DWI Lawyer, inclusion with the select few prominent lawyers in this association is pretty exciting for me. I continue to give the same level of professional service which has enabled my choice into this prestigious organization of lawyers.

Recent DWI Representations:

  • Client charged with aggravated DWI. Client is a financial professional and his future career advancement was in jeopardy if convicted of this serious misdemeanor crime. The Suffolk County District Attorney VERY RARELY agrees to reduce such a charge because of the elevated Blood Alcohol Content finding by police. Edward negotiated an extremely favorable resolution which will lead to the reduction of the aggravated DWI to a simple traffic infraction after 1 year of good behavior by the client. His professional license and future career opportunities are secure.
  • Medical Doctor charged with DWI in Suffolk County. Edward negotiates reduction to simple traffic infraction to insure no negative impact on Doctor’s career.
  • Client charged with DWI after driving his vehicle into a residential home in Suffolk County. The District Attorney originally recommended jail time. Edward negotiated a very favorable outcome which will lead to dismissal of criminal charges and only a traffic violation after 1 year of good conduct by client.
  • Pennsylvania business man charged with DWI in Suffolk County. Edward negotiates a reduced charge of only a single traffic violation.
  • Edward represented a New Jersey Businessman charged with DWI in Suffolk County. Once again, Edward negotiates a reduction of the criminal charges to a non-criminal traffic violation.
  • Edward represented student at Stony Brook University charged with DWI in Suffolk County. Again, Edward negotiates a reduction of the criminal charges to a non-criminal traffic violation.

A Riverhead Criminal Lawyer/Riverhead DWI Lawyer Who Is Hands-On With All Clients

I have never taken on more criminal and DWI cases than I can handle at a time. While I have a support staff which is always available to my clients, I’m the attorney who will personally resolve and take your case to trial if necessary. I’ve seen several so called criminal lawyers practice in volume, taking case after case – biting off more than they can chew so to speak. Criminal lawyers who approach their practice like this cannot give a fraction of the level of service I provide my clients.

Very often, clients will retain me to handle their case after they’ve started off with another attorney. These clients have shown great appreciation for the attention and concentrated effort I bring to the table for them. When you hire Edward Palermo, you get Edward Palermo. I’m direct, one-on-one, and will never hand off your case to another partner of my staff as many attorneys do. You don’t deserve that. You deserve one attorney who can handle your case with flying colors – not a slew of them. This approach to criminal law leaves clients confused, stressed out and worried that they won’t get the legal representation they initially entrusted with their case. That simply won’t happen with me.
