When an individual, business or family member is confronted with a criminal charge, the value of an experienced criminal law lawyer cannot be overemphasized. A criminal conviction can impose unacceptable restrictions to educational, employment and entrepreneurial opportunities. For more than 30 years, residents of the East Meadow area have been turning to the criminal law attorneys at Raiser and Kenniff, PC for effective legal representation.

Regardless of the nature and severity of the charge, enduring the challenge of a criminal investigation or prosecution can be daunting. The judicial system, including obscure legal procedures and case law, is difficult to comprehend. The criminal law lawyers at Raiser and Kenniff handle every legal case with extreme care. Regardless of whether the case involves a minor misdemeanor or felony charge, they understand that every criminal conviction becomes part of a defendant’s permanent record.

Defending the Accused

It’s important to realize that the prosecution bears the burden of proving every element of a criminal charge beyond a reasonable doubt. As former assistant district attorneys, the legal team of Raiser & Kenniff realize that this is a high burden of proof to attain. Therefore, they aggressively defend the constitutional rights of every criminal defendant and attack the weakest elements of the prosecution’s case. Often times, this strategy results in a negotiated dismissal of the case or an acceptable reduction in charges.

With offices in New York, City, Nassau County and Suffolk County, the law firm of Raiser and Kenniff has extensive experience handling a broad range of alleged criminal violations, including homicide, drug possession, white collar crimes, drunk driving charges and traffic offenses. If you or a loved one has become the subject of a criminal investigation in the East Meadow area, please schedule a free initial consultation with a Raiser & Kenniff lawyer without delay.
