In most cases, the criminal process begins with the police making an arrest and bringing the accused person before a Judge for arraignment at one of the Long Island criminal courts. During the arraignment, the person is informed of the criminal charges being brought and the Judge will decide whether to set bail or release the person for the pendency of the case. It is important to have an experienced Nassau County Criminal Lawyer or Suffolk County Criminal Lawyer at this stage because they can make arguments for release or low bail and in some situations move for dismissal of the charges.

After the accusatory process is completed, a person with a Long Island criminal charge can either fight the case or attempt to negotiate a plea bargain. An experienced Long Island Criminal Attorney should be able to provide you with options and articulate a strategy to achieve a result that best suits your particular circumstances.


We approach criminal cases in Nassau County and Suffolk County by investigating and assessing the circumstances of the alleged crime and our client’s personal circumstances. Our objective is to provide options and devise and explain a strategy to obtain the best result possible for each individual client. We find it is particularly important to be available and maintain an open line of communication so that we can listen to the client and provide a solution that allows himor her to resume their lives with as little burden as possible.
