What to expect when charged with a criminal or DWI offense?

Web PTB Logo copyWhen you are first charged with any crime in New York State, you are either issued an appearance summons to appear in court at a later date for arraignment or you are held to appear before a judge, usually the next day, for an arraignment.  An arraignment is a process before a judge where an initial plea of not guilty is entered and the Court then may decide a number of preliminary issues, the most important of which is the defendants custody status.  It is IMPERATIVE to have a top criminal lawyer with you or your loved one at this point in time.  Once the custody status is determined, the matter is usually scheduled for a conference where the attorneys and the judge will discuss important issues such as disclosure of the prosecutions evidence and potential motion and hearing schedules.  Often, there are multiple dates for conferences as the attorneys and the judge sift through the relevant legal and factual issues in the case.  At some point the parties may be able to reach an amicable resolution to the case.  If not, the matter is usually scheduled for a trial.  

Why is it important to hire the best lawyer possible?

Anytime an individual is faced with the awesome power of the government and an accusation of criminal conduct, it is imperative that the best lawyers for the case be retained.  The reason is simple, the individuals freedom is often at stake as well as the individuals reputation.  A criminal conviction is permanent.  There is no way to remove the stain of a conviction unless the individual gets the benefit of some drastic and rare circumstances or is pardoned by the sitting governor of New York State.  The chance of removing a criminal conviction from one’s record is extremely remote.  Therefore, prevention is the best cure and there can be no better prevention than a skilled and experienced top criminal defense attorney.
