The following are just a few examples of the types of cases handled by the criminal defense attorneys at the Law Offices of Robert E. Brown, P.C.:
- Homicide And Murder – While many people assume that there is no legal differentiation between homicide and murder, the former can include accidental killings, such as by way of intoxicated or reckless driving, while the latter is defined as the intentional killing of another person. Despite the difference between these two charges, the penalties for both can include life imprisonment. There are many defenses to these charges, and the right attorney will be able to formulate the best one on the basis of the facts specific to your circumstance. Don’t risk losing the life you’ve built in Staten Island; let a criminal defense attorney protect it for you.
- Extortion – Extortion is defined as the act of threatening another person with force or violence in exchange for goods, money, or services. In New York, crimes of extortion are typically categorized as crimes of coercion, of which there are first and second-degree charges. Second-degree coercion is a Class A misdemeanor and first-degree coercion is a Class D felony, and while the penalties can be significantly more severe for the latter given that it’s a felony, the differentiation between the two charges can be subtle and difficult to identify. This is where the knowledge and resources of an experienced criminal defense attorney will benefit you most and give you the best chances of walking away with the least serious charge and the mildest penalties.
- Robbery – Robbery differs from burglary and shoplifting in that it includes some element of violence—whether by the use or presence of a weapon, a verbal threat of violence, or physical force. Depending on the type of violence associated with a charge of robbery, a person who has been charged with this crime could be facing a violent or non-violent felony. To differentiate between the three degrees of robbery defined by New York law, understand the penalties associated with each, and identify which applies to your situation, scheduling a consultation with a criminal defense attorney is absolutely necessary.
- Internet Crimes – Given the increasingly ubiquitous nature of technology these days, internet crimes involving hacking, identity theft, credit card fraud, and phishing are on the rise. In this changing landscape, false accusations of illegal cyber activity are not at all uncommon, with law enforcement agents often coming to quick conclusions and failing to consider all possible suspects before filing charges. Don’t let yourself be the victim of an inadequate investigation by law enforcement; if you suspect you’re being investigated for an internet crime, the wisest decision would be to preempt law enforcement’s investigation with a defensive investigation led by a seasoned criminal defense attorney in Staten Island.
- Assault – In order for a prosecutor’s case of alleged assault to be viable, several components must be demonstrated. Depending on the circumstances, an assault could be treated as a misdemeanor or a felony—a distinction which could ultimately cost you your reputation, job, and time with those you love. The criminal defense attorneys at the Law Offices of Robert E. Brown in New York will sit down with you, hear your side of the story, review the evidence and select the items which best support your defense, and give you the best chances of avoiding serious penalties or having your case dismissed entirely—leaving you to pick up right where your life in Staten Island left off.
