Proven Brooklyn Criminal Defense Attorneys On Your Side

Our highly-professional team puts more than 25 years of criminal justice experience along with 30 years of defense trial work on your side. As former prosecutors, we understand how the other side thinks and works to obtain a conviction. With the advantage of that inside knowledge, we can devise savvy strategies designed to combat your charges. Our ultimate goal is to help you obtain the best possible outcome, whether that is through dropped charges, reduced charges or sentences, a not-guilty verdict, or some other positive result. 

What does a defense attorney do?

A criminal defense attorney is a lawyer who represents people who have been accused of committing a crime. Our job is to protect the rights of the accused and to ensure that they receive a fair trial. A criminal lawyer will thoroughly investigate and analyze your arrest, charges, and the evidence against you in search of mistakes and flaws in the prosecution’s case that will work to your advantage. This can include every factor involved, from police reports to witness statements, lab results, and more. We will also interview witnesses and prepare for cross-examination. In some cases, a criminal defense lawyer may negotiate with the prosecutor to have the charges against their client reduced or dropped.

If the case goes to trial, a defense attorney will present their client's defense in court, and work hard to ensure our clients receive a fair trial. We will try to prove that our client is innocent or that the prosecution has not proved our client’s guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. If you have been accused of a criminal offense, it is vital to have an experienced Brooklyn criminal defense attorney on your side.
