Queens Criminal Defense Lawyer

When you are charged with a crime, you need a strong, trusted advocate on your side at all stages of your case. You need a lawyer who will be there for you as soon as you call, who will represent you all the way through the process and through a trial, if necessary. Your lawyer needs to be someone who will be there for you, even after the case is over.

A Criminal Lawyer Who Is There for You Every Step of the Way

I am attorney Luke Scardigno of Queens, New York, and I offer exactly this type of criminal defense representation. I do not simply represent clients and send them on their way; I guide you through the legal process, explaining what is happening at each step of the process. I will continue to assist you until your life is returned as closely as possible to the way things were before your arrest. Before any court appearances, we will either meet in person, or speak on the telephone, so that you can know what to expect. I will always contact you before court to advise you of the upcoming court date, as well as discuss the status of your case. Your telephone calls to me will always be returned, by me. It is I, Luke Scardigno, who will be appearing with you in court.

Call 718-414-6186 or contact me online to arrange a free initial consultation and see how my comprehensive approach to criminal defense can make a difference in your case.

At my firm, I provide you with direct, personal attention from a lawyer with more than 25 years of experience. That lawyer will be Luke Scardigno, not someone straight out of law school. I also remain as accessible as possible, so that you always know where to turn during this stressful time in your life. I understand what you are going through, and one of my goals is to address your concerns and fears in a manner that will benefit you and your case.

Dedicated Criminal Defense Representation

My dedication to protecting my clients' rights is reflected in the focused nature of my practice. For over 25 years, I have exclusively practiced in the area of criminal law so that I can put all of my effort into defending my clients. I am able to offer assistance to clients facing all types of criminal charges, and I am especially prepared to help clients charged with DWI, DUI or domestic violence crimes. I understand that because you are charged with a crime does not mean you did what they say. There are always two sides to every story, and I know, from experience, you were not given a chance to tell your side of the story.

Aggressive Defense of DWI and Domestic Violence Charges

Much of my practice involves the defense of people accused of DWI. I vigorously defend people in both the criminal and license suspension aspects of drunk driving cases, seeking the best possible outcome for every client.

In the area of domestic violence, I defend people facing criminal domestic assault and abuse charges, as well as those who have had a temporary order of protection issued against them. In addition, I can apply my more than 25 years of experience and extensive trial skills to help you if you have been charged with any other felony or misdemeanor crime in New York, including shoplifting and drug charges.

Whatever the nature of your case, I will do everything to help minimize the damage these charges cause in your life. This applies to both defending you against the charges, and assisting you with civil matters and collateral consequences that arise out of criminal charges, something many criminal lawyers do not handle for you. These civil matters can include such issues as getting back your vehicle following a DWI or DUI charge in a civil forfeiture proceeding with NYPD Legal Division; representing you with a Department of Motor Vehicle refusal or safety hearing; or representing you in family court or the integrated domestic violence (IDV) court for a family offense petition arising out of an alleged domestic violence charge.
