If you have been charged with a crime, your future and freedom are at stake. Whether you face a misdemeanor or felony, the most important thing you can do is to contact an experienced criminal defense attorney. But not all lawyers are the same. It is vital to work with a legal representative who fully understands the criminal law process and has successfully handled many similar cases to your own.
Mitigating The Consequences Of Your Criminal Charge
Attorneys Richard Lerner and Kimberly Lerner make up the father-daughter team at the Long Island law firm of Lerner & Lerner, P.C. We are both former prosecutors and have more than 50 years of combined legal experience — so we know the best way to approach the office of the district attorney when defending individuals against criminal charges.
Using this unique legal insight and experience, we provide clients with high-quality representation by fighting for the best possible outcome, whether it is a dismissal or acquittal, lowered charges, alternative sentences, treatment programs or reduced jail time. There are almost no types of criminal defense or DWI DUI cases that we have not resolved, and we have a significant track record of obtaining favorable results in all types of cases.
Relief From Civil Disabilities
Our lawyers understand that facing a criminal charge can cause a great amount of stress and uncertainty. A conviction can have lasting implications on many aspects of your life, including your freedom, your ability to obtain employment and your ability to enjoy certain privileges, including the right to vote, carry a firearm or obtain certain licenses and certifications. Some convictions can even subject you to deportation, even if you are a legal resident/green card holder. If you are convicted of a crime, we can help you obtain a certificate of relief from civil disabilities, which means the conviction shall not stop you from getting certain types of licensing. This is extremely important for professionals such as nurses, doctors, real estate brokers, lawyers, stockbrokers or anyone else who has any type of licensing.
The Personal Attention That You Need During The Criminal Defense Process
As our client, you will be treated with the personal attention and respect you deserve. While our lawyers are known for their aggressive approach to legal advocacy, they are also known for their welcoming approach to client service. We run a family business, and everyone who works with us is treated as one of our own. Our legal team is always happy to address questions and concerns as they arise, and we have a 24-hour answering service for those who need to speak with someone after-hours.
