If you are currently under investigation or have been charged with a crime, this will likely be one of the most terrifying times of your life. There are potentially serious direct and collateral consequences when a person is involved in the criminal justice system. It is important to realize that no matter what the charges are, every person is are entitled to a strong defense.
New York imposes harsh punishments on those who are convicted of breaking the law. If convicted of a crime, a person can face jail time, expensive fines, probation and other penalties. Additional collateral consequences include loss driving privileges, employment or educational opportunities, security clearance, immigration status, or child custody privileges. Convictions can damage credit scores and housing opportunities and can seriously damage a person’s reputation.
