If you are falsely accused of a crime a NYC criminal defense lawyer, at Raiser & Kenniff, PC, protects you from your accuser and fights the system tooth and nail to obtain complete dismissal of the false and defamatory allegations. Our Suffolk County criminal defense lawyers can help you with all of your needs, regardless of whether it be a petty misdemeanor, or a complex white collar crime. Sometimes an appropriately favorable disposition may be gained through the plea bargaining process. This can be achieved by negotiating hand in hand with the courts and prosecutors. Other times, however, favorable dispositions are not possible because hard-line prosecutors favor strict plea bargaining policies instead of sound case analysis and fundamental fairness. As experienced NYC DWI attorneys at Raiser & Kenniff, PC, we make it our business to identify these differences at the very beginning of every case.

When no favorable disposition is likely, we utilize all the tools at our disposal, under the Constitutions of the United States and the State of New York, to push a tired and at times overwhelmed system to work in your favor. Getting to this point is not easy. It takes tenacity, good judgment, and hard work. At Raiser & Kenniff, PC, we have the motivation, experience, and reputation to meet this challenge, every time.

With Raiser & Kenniff, PC, you get more than outstanding defense attorneys; you get an advocate and a friend who stands with you at a crucial time in your life. Those who want to protect their future, their livelihood, and their freedom call Raiser & Kenniff, PC, first.
