Criminal Defense

Arrest typically happens either close in time and place to the scene of the alleged crime (example car stop, sidewalk), or later, pursuant to a telephone call or visit from a detective or federal agent. In either situation, the potential defendant to a criminal action should never speak to any law enforcement agents despite an officer’s claims that cooperation could make things go easier with the judge or District Attorney’s Office.

The person arrested should ask to speak with a criminal defense attorney on Long Island as soon as possible and refuse to answer any questions or sign anything.
