A criminal defense lawyer is a legal professional specializing in the defense of individuals and companies charged with criminal conduct. Our role encompasses a wide array of legal services that are crucial to ensuring a fair legal process for our clients, as well as safeguarding their rights under the U.S. Constitution and New York State laws.
A criminal defense lawyer can help in numerous ways, often significantly affecting the outcome of a criminal case. At Sivin, Miller & Roche LLP, our dedicated team of criminal defense attorneys can provide the following critical services:
Our lawyers thoroughly analyze the charges and evidence against you to develop an effective defense strategy. We can identify strengths and weaknesses in your case, and advise on the best course of action, whether it’s negotiating a plea deal or going to trial.
From the moment of arrest, many essential rights must be protected. We ensure that law enforcement agencies respect your constitutional rights, such as the right to remain silent and the right to be free from unlawful searches and seizures.
If your case goes to trial, having an experienced criminal defense lawyer is crucial. We provide representation in court, skillfully argue your case, and challenge the prosecution’s evidence, all while advocating on your behalf for a not guilty verdict.
We negotiate with prosecutors to strike plea bargains, which can result in reduced charges or lighter sentences. If conviction cannot be avoided, we argue for alternative sentencing options that may replace or reduce jail time.
The criminal justice system is complex and can be overwhelming. We guide you through the process, explain legal terms and procedures, and ensure that you make informed decisions about your case.
Each case is unique, and we tailor our defense to the specifics of your situation. This may involve gathering evidence, interviewing witnesses, and consulting with experts to build a strong defense on your behalf.
Facing criminal charges is stressful. Our lawyers provide not just legal support, but also the emotional and moral support you need. We’re committed to standing with you throughout the process, offering reassurance and helping you manage the anxiety that often accompanies criminal proceedings.
Criminal convictions can have long-lasting effects beyond immediate penalties. We work to minimize these consequences, such as difficulties in finding employment, housing, or educational opportunities due to a criminal record.
If necessary, we can assist with appeals and post-conviction relief efforts, seeking to overturn unjust convictions or reduce excessive sentences. Our representation doesn’t necessarily stop at trial.
We educate you on the legal implications of your case, the likely outcomes, and the long-term effects of different legal strategies, enabling you to make decisions that are in your best interest.
