NYC Criminal Defense Attorneys

New York Criminal Lawyer Serving Manhattan, the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, and Staten Island

Our system of justice guarantees that every person accused of a crime gets a fair trial and is presumed innocent until proven guilty. But what is a truly fair trial? And is a valid presumption of innocence possible in a world where many people rush to judgment before waiting to get all the facts? The answers to those questions can differ in every case, and how those questions are ultimately answered may well come down to the quality of the New York City criminal defense lawyer.

Why You Need an NYC Criminal Defense Attorney

Having a New York City criminal defense attorney is vital if you've been charged with a crime in NYC. An experienced New York defense attorney can help protect your legal rights and interests throughout the entire legal process. They can provide guidance on what to expect, explain the charges against you, and develop a strong defense strategy tailored to your specific case. An NYC criminal attorney will thoroughly understand the New York City court system and how it operates. This knowledge can be invaluable when negotiating plea arrangements or representing you at trial. They will also have established relationships with prosecutors and judges, which can help them advocate for you effectively.

Additionally, a criminal conviction in New York City can carry serious consequences such as fines, imprisonment, or probation. A criminal lawyer in New York can work towards minimizing these penalties or even getting your charges dismissed altogether. Having a competent New York City criminal defense attorney on your side is crucial in protecting your rights and ensuring that you receive fair treatment under the law.

Charges Our NYC Criminal Lawyer Handles

Our New York City criminal defense lawyers are multilingual, speaking Farsi andEnglish, and our criminal defense services include those charged with a variety of criminal charges.

  • Assault - Assault charges can be filed in either the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd degree, and that decision is made based on the severity of the injuries. Our attorneys can work with clients on everything from pleading charges down to going for an outright acquittal.
  • Drug Crimes - Drug charges can include possession, sale, and manufacturing. They can be filed against people ranging from the one who inadvertently possessed a small amount of an illegal substance to a trafficker operating out of a plush office. Here’s what both extremes and everything in between has in common–they each deserve dependable legal representation. They’ll get it from Maryam Jahedi Law Firm P.C.
  • Federal Crimes - A wide range of crimes can bring down federal charges and those levied by the state. Federal court is different, and the defense attorney must know what to expect. The demands for detail are likely to be greater, and the resources of the opposing prosecutor will probably be more significant than at the state level. Our ten years of experience can serve a defendant in good stead when a case is in federal court.
  • Sex Crimes - Society is rightly horrified by sex crimes, including rape, sexual assault, and possession of child pornography. But the nature of the crime has nothing to do with the guilt or innocence of the accused. The attorneys at Maryam Jahedi Law Firm P.C. are here to fight and ensure our clients aren’t railroaded into accepting a plea bargain they don’t deserve. Their future is at stake, and that future is what we fight for.
