Experienced Criminal Defense Lawyer Ready To Protect Your Rights

June 2017 Archives

Can you defend yourself against trespassing charges?

Criminal trespassing is the legal term for trespassing onto someone else's land or using that person's chattel without permission. On the whole, law enforcement agents such as sheriffs, park rangers and police officers enforce the laws for trespassing. In cases where charges are brought against you for crossing onto another person's land, you do have the right to defend yourself.

Domestic violence charges can impact your freedom and family

Things might have gone too far with your spouse during an argument and now you are looking at domestic violence charges. These charges can have a big impact on your life because they involve a violent crime. A conviction can impact your life in a host of ways. One thing that you have to remember if you find yourself in the unbelievable position of facing these charges is that you have the right to defend yourself against the charges.

Interpreter rules to aid domestic violence defendants

Can a language barrier in criminal cases prevent defendants from exercising their legal rights? That question is arising more often in New York domestic violence cases, as more victims are being considered as perpetrators because police cannot understand their stories. Imagine calling the police for help to protect you from an abuser - only to find yourself being hauled off, facing arrest and domestic assault charges because you sought assistance. It is not unfathomable - and it has happened to people in our city.

Failing to install an ignition interlock after a DWI is a crime

Under New York state law (“Leandra’s Law”), all people convicted of a driving while intoxicated charge must install an ignition interlock device in all vehicles they own or operate. It is a crime to drive without an ignition interlock device when your license is restricted in such a way. Doing so is a misdemeanor.
