Criminal Defense Overview

Brooklyn Criminal Lawyer

Criminal charges are a very serious matter in our state; the penalties imposed by the court if convicted are some of the most severe in the country. When charged at the federal level, you are facing even more serious repercussions. Any such case demands the immediate assistance of a Brooklyn criminal defense attorney to act on your behalf.

Our legal team at The Law Offices of David E. Levine has extensive trial experience and an impressive record in defending serious criminal charges in both state and federal court. When arrested, it is advised that you remain silent until your attorney arrives to protect you in any questioning. If you are under investigation for a criminal offense, the same holds true; if you are being investigated you can assume you will be arrested within a short period of time, and you must get legal representation immediately, and refrain from engaging in interviews until your attorney from our firm arrives.

How the Process Works

In many misdemeanor cases, the process is fast and you will be arrested and formally charged within a short period of time. Never enter the courtroom without one of our legal team there to fight for every advantage, whether it is an arraignment, bail hearing, grand jury or other court appearance in state or federal court. In cases of serious felony charges, the process is more complex and should be managed from the moment of your arrest by one of our criminal defense team.

The first step of the process after an arrest is the arraignment, which is not a trial or hearing in which evidence will be presented. The lawyer speaks on behalf of the accused at the arraignment, which is related to the process of being formally charged and setting bail. Without an attorney from our firm to fight for you, you could have a much higher amount in bail or fail to get the opportunity to get out of jail while awaiting trial.
