New York Criminal Defense Attorneys
There are few things more intimidating than to being charged with a criminal offense. A conviction can result in prison time, financial ruin, loss of employment and reputation, and have devastating consequences to a person’s family and personal life. Fortunately, those charged with crimes have the right to a vigorous defense. Romano & Kuan zealously advocates for all our clients no matter how serious or minor the offense.
Thousands of defendants are prosecuted every year in New York state and federal courts, with the accused facing charges that include assault, homicide, sex abuse, domestic disputes, larceny, drug offenses and driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Whether you have been charged with a misdemeanor or felony, you can easily be overwhelmed by the criminal justice system. This is especially true when the police are eager to “solve” criminal cases and prosecutors are equally vehement about obtaining convictions.
Our attorneys are experienced trial and appellate attorneys who can try any case and argue the most complex appeal or post-conviction matter. As founding partner Julia P. Kuan believes, early and aggressive investigation along with a hands-on approach during all phases of litigation is the key to our success in obtaining favorable dispositions, successes at trial, and in appellate and post-conviction matters. We are a leader in overturning wrongful convictions and obtaining monetary compensation for exonerated clients. We are experienced in dealing with prosecutors and judges and will use our knowledge of the system to provide advice and guidance throughout the entire legal process, including bail hearings, plea bargaining, and hearings to exclude coerced “confessions,” unreliable identifications, and illegally obtained physical evidence. No matter what, our lawyers will seek the best possible outcome in your criminal case.
