A Rochester New York Criminal Law Guide

Rochester Lawyer Bob FriedmanBob Friedman

Being under investigation, charged, or arrested for a crime is an extremely stressful event, and one that can change your life forever.

When arrested you will need to make a decision, and fast.

You will be allowed to make one phone call, and that call will either make or break you. The call will usually be to a family member or friend asking them to find a good criminal defense attorney in Rochester.

And we want to be the criminal defense attorneys that you – or the person you called for help – turns to.

My name is Bob Friedman. Our firm has been successfully defending Western New York area residents that have been arrested, or charged with a crime, for over five decades.

I have more than 25 years of criminal defense experience.

Additionally, I also have twenty three years of experience as a prosecutor – so I have close ties to law enforcement and prosecutors throughout Western New York.

What this means to a Rochester resident that is under investigation, charged, or arrested is this – my experience allows me to quickly address your situation, know almost instantly what’s going to be the end-result, and begin to form the right defense strategy from the start.

I believe the best defense is a good offense so I don’t sit around and wait for things to happen while you ponder what your future will look like.

I’ll first attempt to have your case dismissed if that is the correct strategy.

If this is not possible, I aim to get a favorable plea bargain – with the least amount of jail time or even probation if your warrants that.

And if we go to court, I have an enviable track record in front of judges and juries.

So, what should you look for when choosing a criminal lawyer in Rochester NY to represent you:

  • An attorney that is involved at such an early stage of the investigation, they are able to convince Rochester authorities not to charge you at all.
  • An attorney that has the experience and knowledge of criminal law and procedures to gain a dismissal or reduction of the charges.
  • An attorney that can negotiate a favorable outcome.
  • And if needed, an attorney that can win a not-guilty verdict.
