Experienced Representation for Any Criminal Charges

People facing criminal charges always have questions about the legal process. They want to learn about their options and understand how the case will unfold. Providing this level of information takes time and a dedication to helping people who have found themselves in difficult situations.

Caring and Dedicated Defense Lawyers

At our Brooklyn law firm, Schwartz & Krysinski, L.L.P., our attorneys take time to learn about our clients. We discuss their fears and concerns and explore aspects of their lives that might be affected by a criminal conviction. Clients appreciate the care we show and often communicate to us how much they appreciate our special style of legal practice. Contact Schwartz & Krysinski, L.L.P.
