Experienced Criminal Defense Lawyer

When charged with a crime, you need an experienced and knowledgeable attorney you can trust who will be 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 who will take your case to 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 with Law Offices located in Queens, New York, and I offer exactly this type of Criminal Defense Representation. I will not simply represent you and send you on your way; I will 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 returns 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 to discuss the status of your case. I will always return your telephone calls. I will be appearing with you in court — not some attorney, who you never met before and who does not know anything about your case.

At my firm, you receive direct, personal attention from a lawyer with over 25 years of experience in Criminal Defense. I will be 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. My other goal is to ensure you walk away with a clean criminal record, if at all possible. It is very important to me that my clients' records stay clean, if at all possible, no matter how long it takes me to accomplish that goal.

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 offer assistance to people facing all types of criminal charges, and I am especially prepared to help those charged with DWI or Domestic Violence Crimes. Criminal charges do not mean you did what they say. There are always two sides to every story, and I know, from experience, you did not have a chance to tell your side. Call me and I will give you that chance.

Aggressive Defense Of DWI And Domestic Violence Charges

Much of my practice involves the defense of people accused of Driving While Intoxicated (DWI). I vigorously defend people in both the Criminal and DMV License Suspension aspects of Drunk Driving cases. I always pursue the best possible outcome for every client. Each client's case is different, and I will not treat you like every case is the same.

When it comes to Domestic Violence Allegations, I defend people facing Criminal Domestic Violence Assault and Harassment 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 regarding any other Felony or Misdemeanor Crime in New York, including Shoplifting, Grand Larceny, Petit Larceny, or Drug Possession or Sale 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 the civil matters and collateral consequences that arise. That is something many Criminal Lawyers cannot and do not handle for you. These civil matters can include such issues as getting back your vehicle following a DWI charge in a Civil Forfeiture Proceeding with the NYPD Legal Division; representing you at 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 where one party is seeking an Order of Protection against the other.
