The Essential Riverhead Criminal Defense Advocate

Riverhead Criminal Lawyer With Top Ratings

Facing a criminal charge can be scary, and I know you have a lot of questions. 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 30 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.

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. I am a Riverhead Criminal Lawyer with the professional connections and concentrated experience to get you the positive outcome you need.

Edward Palermo is Here For You

Any questions that you have, I will answer. I will explain the criminal charges you face as well as potential strategies to win your case! New clients ALWAYS feel better after meeting with me. Information and knowledge are power. After meeting with me, you will fully know and understand the legal concepts involved in your case. You will also realize that there is light at the end of the tunnel, and I will guide you there.

My experience as a Riverhead Criminal Lawyer is beyond extensive. I have represented thousands of defendants in criminal and driving while intoxicated cases in both Suffolk County and Nassau County courts.

I will create the necessary strategy to defend you in your case. There is no substitute for experience when it comes to a criminal lawyer. Trust your case to a Riverhead Criminal Lawyer who is confident, aggressive and experienced.

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, 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. Contact me today!
