Criminal Defense Strategies To Combat Accusations Of Violent Crimes

Violent crimes that result in conviction can mean serious penalties, the most concerning of which is generally significant jail time. Defendants under that kind of duress are often too overcome with emotion to think about their case with any kind of clarity.

Your choice of legal counsel is the single most important decision you will make after you become aware of the existing charges or those pending investigation. Who you work with can make all the difference between a long prison sentence and a heavy fine; a conviction and a dismissal.

If you have been accused of a violent crime in New York, you need an experienced criminal defense lawyer on your side. Since 1952, Edelman, Krasin & Jaye, PLLC, has defended those accused of committing violent crime in and around New York City, the greater metropolitan area and Long Island.

Violent Felonies Warrant Experienced Counsel

Any prison term can have devastating consequences for your life. A conviction will brand you as a felon, complicating your attempts to seek gainful employment once you are released. It is not an easy stigma to overcome. You can't trust the outcome of your case to just anyone. It is imperative to hire a defense attorney with the strength and confidence to stand up to aggressive prosecutors while exposing every weakness in the case being built against you.

Violent crimes are felonies (the most serious crimes with the stiffest penalties) and, by definition, result in at least one year of prison time upon conviction. New York law divides violent crimes into distinct classes, each of which carries its own penalties and sentencing guidelines. If you are accused of any violent felony, you need to stand before a judge with a qualified New York criminal defense lawyer.

In addition to making sure you receive a strong legal defense, the most important thing your lawyer can do is to explain which rules apply to your case in such a way so as not to inspire panic, but to empower you with knowledge. We have represented clients accused of these violent crimes for decades and understand the details of a defense for each type of charge in a way that newer, less experienced firms do not.
