Get a Consultation After an Arrest

Protecting your future, your freedom, and your rights is vital after you have been accused or arrested for any alleged criminal offense, be they insurance fraud or domestic violence. At the Law Offices of Robert Tsigler, PLLC, our New York criminal defense attorneys proudly serve clients throughout New York state and New Jersey, as well as in throughout the rest of the U.S. We have a reputation for getting winning results and have successfully guided thousands of clients through the justice system.

All American citizens have the right to legal representation after an arrest, and they also have the right to remain silent. It’s a good idea to take advantage of these rights. Even if you know you are innocent of the charges against you, the police will look for anything and everything they can find to build the strongest case possible against you. Conviction numbers are important to the police, so they will look for as many charges as they believe may stick in most cases. Remaining silent prevents anyone from using your words against you.

A legal representative can assess the charges and evidence against you and help you prepare a defense. A public defender will be available to you at no cost and most public defenders are terrific attorneys. However, few public defenders will be able to provide the same level of individual attention your case would receive from a private NYC criminal defense lawyer like the ones you can find at the Law Offices of Robert Tsigler, PLLC.

Types of Criminal Defense Cases We Accept

New York law upholds strict statutes regarding many different types of criminal behavior and the penalties that might follow these acts. Some of the criminal defense cases the Law Offices of Robert Tsigler, PLLC has handled include:

  • Violent crimes. If you have been accused of assault, battery, or weapons offenses, our team will review the charges against you and determine your best move.
  • Drug crimes. After an arrest for drug possession or possession with intent to sell illicit drugs, you might face fines, jail time, and other penalties depending on the substance involved, the quantity, and the nature of your arrest.
  • Sex crimes. Crimes that involve sexual conduct are pursued aggressively by New York City prosecutors. We can potentially spare you from incarceration and severe fines as well as sex offender registration, depending on the details of your case.
  • DUI cases. If you were arrested for driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol in NYC, your criminal defense attorney can help you plea to reduced charges in some cases. In other cases, it means our team can help reduce your sentencing to avoid jail time in exchange for mandatory drug and alcohol counseling or rehabilitation.
  • “Fraud” is a broad term that covers many different illegal activities, but the core definition of fraud is any crime of deception. Check fraud, wire fraud, benefits fraud, insurance fraud, credit fraud, and many other varieties of this offense exist, all of which can potentially lead to severe legal penalties. These include but are not limited to repayment of all ill-gotten funds and assets gained through the fraudulent activity.
  • Domestic violence. The state of New York considers “domestic violence” as interpersonal violence that occurs between family members, romantic partners, or household members. A domestic violence charge could lead to incarceration, fines, and loss of custody rights or support rights in some cases.

These are only a few examples of the types of cases the Law Offices of Robert Tsigler, PLLC handles. Depending on the severity of the charges against you, you might face long-term imprisonment in county jail or state prison, fines in the thousands or tens of thousands of dollar range, restitution to victims named in your case, loss of your professional licenses and credentials, and long-term registration as a sex offender and/or felon. A New York City criminal defense attorney is your best defense against criminal penalties like these, and the right attorney can potentially spare you from the worst potential consequences on the table in your case.

What to Expect from Your Criminal Defense Attorney

The average public defender handles several cases at once and can provide individual clients with minimal one-on-one time. When you instead choose a private criminal defense firm like the Law Offices of Robert Tsigler, PLLC, as your NYC criminal defense lawyers, you will have a much more accessible, responsive, and comprehensive criminal defense team on your side.

Your New York City criminal defense attorney will start by assessing the facts involved in your case, the record of your arrest, and a thorough investigation of the events leading up to and immediately following your arrest. Your attorney will want to find any holes in the prosecution’s case, procedural errors that may qualify having the charges against you dropped, or exculpatory evidence that proves your innocence.

Your criminal defense attorney will be present to represent your interests during all of the proceedings in your case, from your preliminary hearing and arraignment to the various court appearances you will need to make until your case concludes.
