The Essential Long Island Criminal Defense Advocate

In my role as a Long Island Criminal Defense Lawyer, I encounter these questions and more daily. The initial step is to stay calm and take a deep breath. I recognize that confronting criminal charges can be an exceptionally stressful experience. It’s crucial to gain perspective – at this stage, you are merely ACCUSED of a crime. The cornerstone of our criminal justice system, the Presumption of Innocence, is something I am committed to upholding in your case.

Choosing the right criminal attorney is crucial for a successful outcome. With 29 years of experience in Long Island’s criminal law landscape, I possess a deep understanding of the intricacies of criminal defense. While some attorneys with general practices may venture into criminal law, I strongly advise against entrusting your case to them. Criminal cases are too significant to be handled by non-specialists. There is nothing about your case that can catch me off guard – my extensive 27-year tenure has exposed me to a diverse range of legal scenarios.

I have nurtured outstanding relationships with judges and prosecutors, considering them invaluable assets in advocating for my clients. As a Long Island Criminal Defense Attorney, I offer not only professional connections but also a wealth of specialized experience to achieve the outcomes you need.
