Have you been arrested or received an appearance ticket for assault, menacing, domestic violence charges, sexual assault, or other crimes against a person? These are the more consequential crimes of the NY State Penal Code and the Nassau District Attorney takes these cases very seriously. One of the things that sets these types of cases apart is the strong reliance on the complainant or “victim” in the case. If the victim wants to press charges, even if the case is factually weak, the District Attorney may still aggressively pursue the charges. Conversely, even if a complainant does not want to press charges, the District Attorney may still forge ahead with the case, at times even bringing it to trial. I have decades of experience dealing with these types of charges. While no two cases are alike, I have been successful in getting charges reduced or in some instances dismissed. I have also conducted jury trials on assault cases and gotten acquittals of those charges. Call me if you have a court appearance for any type of violent crime or domestic violence allegation.
