Criminal Law and Your Rights
In New York State, people who have been accused of criminal offenses face determined prosecutors with the government’s virtually inexhaustible supply of resources at their disposal.
Unfortunately for the accused, the promise of “innocent until proven guilty” does not often provide enough of a balance against those vast resources on its own. To protect your rights, and potentially your freedom, you need an experienced criminal defense lawyer.
At Strauss & Kallus Law Offices, we believe in standing up for our clients’ rights and freedom. Our goal is to obtain the best possible outcome for every client, regardless of the charges involved.
