Long Island Criminal Defense Attorneys Serving Suffolk and Nassau Counties, NY

Providing aggressive support for a range of charges, from traffic violations to felonies

For most people, dealing with any type of legal issue is confusing. But facing criminal charges is among the most stressful and frightening experiences in life. If the police arrest you and take you into custody, you have the right to remain silent and call an attorney. But, even if you are innocent of all charges, you need to explicitly ask for these rights.

Regardless of the severity of the charges involved, the law firm of Jakubowski, Robertson, Maffei, Goldsmith & Tartaglia, LLP guides our clients through the legal process without judgment, making sure their rights are protected every step of the way.

We make a difference in all types of cases

Virtually everyone facing charges can benefit from the support of an experienced criminal defense attorney. We provide effective defense in the following types of cases:

  • Traffic violations: You may not need an attorney to handle your defense for a minor traffic violation, but convictions add points to your record that can quickly result in the loss of your driving privileges. Our skilled attorneys can help protect your record through effective representation.
  • Misdemeanor charges: Take any criminal charges seriously. Even convictions for misdemeanors can result in severe penalties, including jail time. A skilled criminal defense lawyer can protect your freedom.
  • Felony charges: NY sentencing for felony charges can be extreme. The most serious convictions for felonies can lead to life imprisonment. Anyone facing these charges needs aggressive defense from an experienced lawyer.

Look for a criminal defense lawyer in Long Island with local prosecution experience

The more a criminal defense attorney understands about the prosecution side of a criminal case, the better he or she can develop a thorough and effective defense for a client. Two of our partners are former District Attorneys from the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office and Brooklyn County District Attorney’s Office. This experience provides us with unique insight into how the local opposition works — and knowledge of the resources it has at its disposal. This information is invaluable in helping us anticipate the methods the prosecution uses, so we can apply the best techniques in each defense case we handle.
