DEFENSE AGAINST CHARGES FOR VIOLENT CRIMES

The consequences of a conviction for a violent felony in New York are extremely serious. There are mandatory prison terms — even for a first offense — for any violent felony conviction. A third conviction could mean life in prison.

You need an effective, experienced defense from a dedicated criminal defense attorney to try to prevent convictions that count toward New York’s “three strikes” law (persistent felony offender treatment).

I have more than 20 years of experience defending clients facing charges of violent crimes ranging from assault to homicide. Call 845-454-2385. You can also contact me by e-mail for a free in-office consultation about your case.

SOME OF THE CRIMES THAT CAN BE CONSIDERED VIOLENT FELONIES IN NEW YORK:

  • Assault, felony assault and aggravated assault
  • Domestic violence
  • Gang assault
  • Kidnapping
  • Burglary
  • Robbery and armed robbery
  • Arson
  • Homicide (attempted murder and murder)

It is essential to fight hard against any charge involving a violent offense to avoid “strikes” on your criminal record. You can take your case to trial, or you can try to limit the damage through plea negotiations.

I will review the information available to us at the time of our discussion and help you make the best decision in your case. If a trial is best for you, then I will not hesitate to take your case before a judge and jury.
