The laws in New York are constantly changing and the nuances in revised statutes and new case law can be critical to a favorable result in your case. Our seasoned criminal defense attorneys stay up-to-date with these changes so we can make a significant difference to your future. As former prosecuting attorneys, we also understand how the prosecution is going to build a case against you.

If you are contending with charges for robbery, for example, we explore defenses that include:

  • Duress
  • Entrapment
  • Mental disease or defect
  • Infancy, which is for persons under the age of 14

If you are facing charges for first-degree robbery with a firearm, the defense could involve indicating that the firearm used was not loaded or was unable to be discharged. Each degree of a robbery charge has different distinctions. The prosecution must prove every element of the charge for a conviction to be made. Our attorneys will take the time to give you straightforward explanations about the charges you face and will be by your side every step of the way.
