New York Criminal Defense Attorneys
Solid Criminal Defenses Built by Former Long Island Assistant District Attorneys
Criminal cases involve the most serious offenses in the American judicial system. Unlike civil cases where the dispute lies between two or more private citizens, criminal charges are brought by local, state, or federal governments. When you find yourself facing such charges, you are actually up against a government entity and all of the money, time, and resources it can wield.
If you are facing criminal charges on Long Island or anywhere in the New York metropolitan area, you need experienced legal counsel. You need the criminal defense attorneys at Collins Gann McCloskey & Barry PLLC, New York’s premier criminal defense firm.
The Consequences of a Conviction
Criminal charges need to be taken seriously. If you are found guilty, any criminal conviction carries the possibility of severe penalties.
You could be facing:
- Imprisonment in a state or federal institution
- Substantial fines
- Loss of certain rights and freedoms
- A permanent criminal record that can follow you on every job, loan, education, or housing application you ever fill out
