You Need Legal Firepower Now
Successfully navigating the criminal law system in New York State requires a lot of experience and finesse. This is why choosing the right Long Island criminal defense lawyer is so important! There are a lot of ramifications to being found guilty of a crime or a misdemeanor. For example, you should know that misdemeanor convictions are never sealed, unless offenders are classified as youth, and that a guilty verdict for marijuana possession may bar you from accessing financial aid in the future.
As well, there are long-term limitations that reach far beyond the legal world. Those who have criminal records may not be able to visit other countries or access visas for foreign countries. It can also be difficult for convicted criminals to find work or be promoted at a current job. As well, relationships with family and friends often deteriorate.
At Austin Law Associates PC, we understand criminal law inside and out and we are here to advise you of your rights and then protect those rights! If you’re in trouble with the law, the smartest thing that you can do is retain legal counsel today. When you are charged with a crime it is a mistake to put off engaging a criminal defense lawyer. Criminal charges are not going to disappear or become inconsequential, and eventually, court dates and trial will occur. At that time, you need a robust defense that was prepared by an experienced attorney over time.
As well, the longer you wait to contact a criminal law attorney, the more memories of the events surrounding your arrest will fade, witnesses harder to contact, and evidence may disappear or be lost, due to the passage of time. Your want to be proactive and assertive in providing a criminal defense and protecting your rights.
When you hire one of the qualified criminal lawyers at Austin Law Associates PC, your attorney will be able to create a stronger defense for you and may even be able to arrange a plea bargain. Plea bargains are the submission of a Guilty plea to a lesser criminal offense than originally charged. This is not the best course of legal action for every case, but it is helpful option in certain situations.
If you wait too long, the chances of accessing a plea bargain may also disappear!
