The New York Criminal Process Explained

First and foremost, if you are accused of a crime it is important to understand that you have rights that must be adhered to by law enforcement officers and other officials throughout the entire process, from investigation through trial or settlement if applicable.

Police investigations begin when there is suspicion or reports of potential illegal activity or violations of laws or regulations by an individual or group of people; however, an investigation does not guarantee charges will follow or result in jail time as these depend on many factors such as evidence presented during trial or plea deals accepted between both parties if applicable.

A dismissal occurs when there is insufficient evidence presented against the accused while a conviction leads to jail time depending on severity of crime committed according to its classification as either misdemeanors (less severe) or felonies (more severe).

Client Testimonials

Our Clients Rave About Their Results
  • They were always available quickly, to address my concerns. Having dealt with some law firms before, I really appreciated this.

    “Steven Raiser's law firm handled my case with excellence throughout the process. I had a SBA EIDL loan that got transferred to the Department of Treasury unexpectedly, and had a 30% penalty added to the amount due, and due very quickly, which was very stressful. After talking with Steven Raiser, and working with Harry Gill, who was absolutely brilliant in working with me and preparing the case, they were able to recall the case to the SBA. They were always available quickly, to address my concerns. Having dealt with some law firms before, I really appreciated this.
