High Profile Criminal Defense
The media loves a controversial criminal case, particularly if the defendant is a celebrity or high profile individual. Managing the media during the months leading up to trial can be a daunting task, even for a defendant accustomed to the limelight.
However, our law office has been working in high profile criminal defense litigation for decades, and we can make certain that you are painted in a positive light whenever we address the media. What’s more, we are not deterred or intimidated by the attention garnered by a high profile case and will make certain your defense is handled with poise and professionalism. By working with us, you can rest assured that any details provided to the media about your case are accurate, correct and not open to interpretation.
Defense Against Major Violent Crimes
Our New York criminal defense lawyers are well-versed in the New York Penal Laws as pertaining to violent crimes, and are prepared to mount a defense to your recent violent crime charge. Whether you are facing murder, assault, manslaughter or kidnapping charges.We will work overtime to protect your rights and ensure you are given a fair and unbiased trial. It is not uncommon for violent crime allegations to receive invasive media coverage, sometimes with misreported facts or unchecked assertions that may affect potential jurors’ views and create an unfair prejudice. As experienced criminal defense practitioners, we will employ tactics to work against this prejudice and help you achieve the fair trial you deserve.
Violent crimes typically involve an expansive assortment of forensic evidence. From blood samples to ballistics, we have a team of experts readily available to review your case from a microscopic level, allowing us to create a defense capable of raising that necessary reasonable doubt. Moreover, we are accustomed to the tactics often utilized by the prosecution to secure a victory, including shoddy police work, unlawful searches and seizures and use of questionable experts. In your case, you can rest assured we will be prepared with an argument to prevent the use of any evidence against you that does not comport with evidentiary rules, is overly prejudicial or was not collected pursuant to constitutional principles.
Non-judgmental Sex Crimes Representation
Facing a sex crime charge is a humiliating experience, and our team of professionals is ready to help guide you through the process of defending against these heinous charges and moving on with your life. Even if a defendant is cleared of a sex crime, lingering doubt tends to hover around the defendant for months or years following the acquittal. For this reason, we will work diligently to ensure that your sex crimes defense is thorough and meticulous, digging up every detail from the incident in question and ensuring all forensic evidence is brought to light.
Drug crime legislation is changing regularly, and our criminal defense attorneys work tirelessly to keep abreast of the amendments to the state and federal drug code. Whether you are facing a misdemeanor drug crime or a major trafficking indictment, we can help mount a credible and aggressive defense to the government’s charges. We are unafraid of state prosecutors and their attempts to intimidate our clients, particularly clients who are facing minor, first-time drug offenses. If rehabilitation is a better treatment option for you, we will fight for a sentence or probation condition that upholds your needs and will reduce your likely recidivism behavior. Likewise, if you are facing a major drug crime charge, particularly a drug trafficking charge under federal laws, we will fight for the lightest possible sentence as well as work to keep your legal status in the United States if a conviction would place you in jeopardy.
The number of fraud crimes in the federal and state penal codes is ever-expanding, and our office is ready to help you defeat this serious criminal charge. Wire fraud and mail fraud are often charged against our clients as an ancillary crime occurring pursuant to another alleged criminal fraud scheme. However, as our New York criminal lawyers will explain, the prosecution must prove intent to defraud as part of its case, and mere accident or negligence is insufficient to support a charge of criminal fraud. Whether you are facing health care, banking, securities or any other type of fraud, we encourage you to contact us right away. If you are under investigation for fraud but have not been formally charged yet, our office can help secure your constitutional criminal procedure rights by ensuring your property is not searched or seized illegally without a proper warrant and probable cause. If you have already been charged, our attorneys will work to have any improperly obtained evidence excluded.
Computer crimes can include any computer theft or Internet-based offense, including unauthorized use of a computer, hacking, phishing, transmission of contraband (i.e., pornographic material) over the Internet, identity theft, unlawful email spamming, using the Internet to commit a crime and more. Our computer crimes representation has assisted clients in avoiding prosecution by making the simple argument that “it wasn’t him!” More specifically, we recently defended against computer crime allegations that were actually perpetrated by a remote hacker having accessed our client’s IP address using an unsecured wireless network. When the forensic team tracked the IP address, it came back to our client, even though he was not involved in the crime at all. Fortunately, further investigation corroborated our assertion, and our client was exonerated of culpability in the matter. For assistance with your computer crimes charge under investigation, our attorneys can use their knowledge of the intersection of law and technology to help you avoid an unwarranted conviction.
Federal charges can often carry stiffer fines and penalties than the New York version of the same law, meaning you need an attorney able to effectively argue on your behalf under both state and federal statutes. Attorney Frederick Sosinsky is admitted to practice before all New York state courts, as well as the United States District Court for the Eastern and Southern Districts of New York. Attorney Sosinsky is also admitted to practice before the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, which handles appellate review of federal cases.
