Being accused of a crime is always a very serious matter. The penalties you may be facing can range from jail or prison time to hefty fines, long probations in which you must comply with all court-ordered restrictions and conditions, and other court sanctions depending on the charges. Add to that a permanent criminal record that can be accessed by a routine background check and your life can be negatively affected forever. Because of the high stakes, you need an experienced and proven criminal defense lawyer in your corner as soon as possible.
At Townsend, Mottola & Uris Law, we understand what is at risk for anyone under investigation or who has been charged with any state or federal offense. In federal cases, the stakes may be even higher due to their seriousness and federal sentencing guidelines. Our team of Brooklyn lawyers for criminal defense are backed by decades of combined criminal law experience that includes former prosecutorial experience as well as over a decade of proven defense trial work.

In criminal cases, it is important to realize that you should have legal representation as soon as possible, even at the investigation stage. Early intervention by an attorney will ensure that your legal rights are protected and that you are treated fairly from the outset. It is too easy to inadvertently harm your case in police interviews without a lawyer present. After being charged, you should also remember that you need legal counsel by your side at every court appearance, including arraignments, bail hearings, and more. Without representation, you may face heftier bail or may lose the chance to await trial outside of jail.
