Brooklyn criminal defense attorney explains violent and drug-related offenses
For example, many of our clients are unable to sleep or concentrate at work due to the concern and stress associated with a pending criminal charge. The Bukh Law Firm stands ready to represent people facing charges for violent and drugs related crimes. We believe in the principle that criminal defense is about more than simply standing up to “the system” and advocating for your Constitutional rights in the face of government prosecution.
Mounting a viable defense is about you. It is about getting you back to the life that you had before the arrest ever occurred.
Domino Effect of a Violent or Drug-Related Criminal Charge
If you are charged with a violent criminal offense or drug-related crime, there are three “dominos” you should be prepared for.
First, do not be surprised if friends, family members, neighbors, etc. rush to judgment and presume your guilty. Despite the legal principle of “innocent until proven guilty”, the harsh reality is that many people automatically assume someone is guilty just because they were arrested.
Second, jail time is just one of many consequences of a criminal conviction. For example, the loss of employment, suspension of your professional license, loss of immigration status, and a lower credit score are all potential consequences of a criminal conviction.
Third, convictions are, in many cases, permanent. This means a conviction can haunt you for the rest of your life.
This is why it makes sense to retain the services of the skilled Brooklyn assault and battery defense attorneys with the Bukh Law Firm. Our team of legal professionals are well known in the New York legal community as fierce and effective advocates on behalf of our clients. We are skilled investigators with years of trial defense experience in the New York courts.
Our team of skilled and aggressive Brooklyn defense lawyers work hard to persuade prosecutors to dismiss charges and reduce sentences. We handle cases involving violent crimes including:
- Vehicular manslaughter
- Murder, homicide, and manslaughter
- Sexual assault
- Assault and battery
- Gang-related fighting
- Weapons charges
- Gun violence
- Drugs related crimes
- DWI criminal cases
These are serious crimes that often come with serious, life-altering penalties, if convicted. Most of these violent and drug-related offenses can result in you serving years in prison, paying thousands of dollars in monetary fines, along with a whole host of other ramifications.
Serious Criminal Charges Require Serious Defense
As you can see, the seriousness of the offense only amplifies the need to hire a top-notch Brooklyn defense attorney. Do not rely on inexperienced criminal defense counsel when facing serious charges. Do not rely on the state to protect your rights. The experienced attorneys with the Bukh Law Firm aggressively and effectively defend our clients in all parts of the criminal process including:
- Pre-indictment investigation
- Plea bargains
- Pre-trial motions and hearings
- Federal charges
Conviction rates for federal crimes are very high, which is why it is imperative to retain the services of a Brooklyn attorney who knows federal law and can effectively protect your rights.
The fact that drugs and drug use have become woven into popular culture and are sometimes glamorized does not alter the fact that possession and use of cocaine, heroin and marijuana are still illegal.
If you have been arrested for or are facing drug charges, it is vital to seek the services of an experienced drug crimes attorney as soon as possible.
