Arrested in NYC – You Live Outside NY
You probably never expected to find yourself in legal trouble while traveling in New York. Out-of-state defendants face challenges returning to court.
The seriousness of the criminal charges might seem magnified while you’re far away from home and uncertain about what to do. Don’t have to face this nightmare alone.
I frequently defend out-of-state defendants in New York City.
I’m a criminal defense attorney with more than 27 years of experience practicing exclusively in New York.
I know how New York City prosecutors work. I know the steps to take in helping you navigate the criminal justice system. Whether you’re outside the U.S., or in the U.S. but outside New York State, I may be able to help you address minor criminal offenses without you needing to travel back to New York City.
Experienced Lawyer for Out-of-State Defendants
I have more than two decades of experience representing hundreds of New Yorkers and out-of-state defendants facing serious criminal allegations. I understand the questions going through your mind: Can you fight the criminal charges without traveling back to New York? What penalties are you facing? What will this cost you?
The unknown creates great anxiety. Ignoring a difficult situation can magnify the stress.
I will address your concerns by letting you know how the New York criminal justice system works. I’ll explain how less-serious offenses often can be resolved without you traveling back to New York. I have extensive experience trying to make the legal process as seamless as possible for out-of-state defendants facing less-serious criminal allegations, such as:
- Driving with a suspended or revoked license
- Possession of small quantities of drugs
- Possessing an open container of alcohol
- Disorderly conduct
- Public urination
If you received a Desk Appearance Ticket or a summons, email or fax me a copy. This will help me understand the exact charges you’re facing – a starting point for us to develop your defense strategy.
I’ll use my legal skills and years of experience to negotiate a favorable resolution on your behalf. I may be able to appear in court without you and resolve your case in your absence, without the need for you to travel back to New York.
