You’ve Been Accused – I Will Defend You
I’m a Criminal Defense and Family Lawyer in New York City
Nothing’s worse than being accused. Together we’ll build your best defense.”– Bruce Yerman
Defending you is a privilege. The skills I’ve developed over 27 years of practicing in New York City Criminal Courts are at your service as your criminal defense and family lawyer.
Family offenses, juvenile delinquency, custody, visitation, child support, abuse & neglect, divorce. Many of my clients simultaneously have cases against a current or former partner in Criminal Court and Family Court.
Strategic Criminal Defense
Understand your legal situation. Then take action.
Never Speak to Police
Tell the truth. Tell a lie. Say a little or a lot. Innocent, guilty, or somewhere in between. It doesn’t matter. The police will arrest you no matter what you say.
The police want to speak with you because they think you did it. Most likely they already have cause to arrest you.
Even if you didn’t commit a crime, police possess some evidence tending to prove you did.
Your words are extremely valuable. Keep them to yourself. Never speak with police. Use your constitutional right to remain silent. Always! No exceptions.
