Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

  • The moment you are contacted by the police, you should quickly tell them that you will not meet with them without legal counsel present. Obtain a name and telephone number for the person who contacted you. Reach out to our office immediately so that we can assess the situation and help you proceed.
  • As soon a person is arrested, it is advisable to hire an attorney to represent their interests. Call our office at 718-504-1440 so that we can help you: (1) assert their right to not make any statements; (2) find which precinct they have been brought to; (3) determine what charges are being alleged against them; (4) attempt to expedite their processing time at the precinct; (5) communicate with the district attorney's office to determine what charges that will be formally charged against them (if any); (6) communicate with the Court to attempt to expedite the processing time until they are seen by a judge; (7) appear at the courthouse or central booking with them; and (8) represent them at the arraignment in order to make the best application to the court to have them released on recognizance or as low bail as possible.
  • This is an old question that routinely arrises when someone interacts with the court system. Some appointed lawyers are better trial attorneys than $1,000,000 attorneys that are routinely featured on television. Some private lawyers are worse trial attorneys than first-year law students. You need to be comfortable and confident with the person who represents you or your friend/family member. Hiring private lawyers provides you with a level of access that cannot happen with an appointed lawyer. You will have our cell phone numbers and can reach us any time of day or night. When a court appearance is scheduled, you will likely be our main focus as we have limited cases. Typically, this is not the case with an appointed lawyer. This type of access can have a tremendous effect on your outcome and it can also have a tremendous effect on your experience with the court system.
  • We differentiate ourselves by trying to understand your needs while applying it to your case and we are here to guide and help you understand the complex process of the criminal justice system. In addition, we defend you with our thorough knowledge of the varied intricacies of government investigations while we vigorously defend your constitutional rights.
  • We accept cash, checks, and most major credit cards. Under certain circumstances payment plans can be arranged.
  • Call our office at 718-504-1440. During a brief conversation we will assess the legal situation that you are facing. If it is a matter that we can handle, we will set up an initial consultation and meet with you in our office. All consultations are free of charge and there is no obligation to utilize our services.
