Criminal Charges We Defend
If you have been arrested, you may be feeling scared. We are a firm of committed lawyers who handle criminal defense cases. Here are the criminal charges we defend.
Criminal Charges We Defend | Domestic Violence
For many decades, New York domestic violence law required battered, financially dependent spouses to proactively file charges against the family’s breadwinner, creating an unreasonable and untenable situation that left many families unprotected.
This was obviously not in the best interest of New York families, so the state has more recently adopted a different approach, and as experienced Buffalo domestic violence attorneys, it is our belief that in this area, the pendulum has swung too far in the direction of an unreasonable definition of “family protection.”
Criminal Charges We Defend | Assault
Assault is an extremely serious charge in New York State, with penalties that can include big fines and jail time. If you’ve been arrested for or charged with assault, you need help right away from an experienced assault lawyer. The attorneys at Friedman & Ranzenhofer are some of the most experienced attorneys you’ll find in Western New York.
Criminal Charges We Defend | Drug Crimes
Western New York County prosecutors take drug crimes very seriously, and if you’ve been caught in possession of narcotics or trafficking in them (such as marijuana, cocaine or prescription drugs), you’re looking at an extremely risky legal situation that could cost you a lot of money – and can definitely land you in jail.
If you’ve been charged with a drug crime in Buffalo, don’t wait to speak with our experienced drug crime attorneys to safeguard your rights.
Criminal Charges We Defend | Juvenile Crimes
As a parent, one of the worst moments of your life is receiving a call notifying you that your child has been arrested for a crime. Maybe there have been previous bouts of trouble, or perhaps the behavior in question has caught you off guard, but whatever the situation, if your child has been arrested, you need our skilled Buffalo juvenile crime lawyers.
Criminal Charges We Defend | Theft
When it comes to theft crimes, the State of New York doesn’t play around. And unfortunately for you, simply being charged with crimes like shoplifting, possessing stolen property, embezzlement, identity theft, or fraud is enough for many Buffalo employers to terminate you on the spot – ending promising careers before you even have a chance to defend yourself. Things can be even worse for immigrants working their way to permanent residency or citizenship, and students relying on scholarships or loans to complete their higher education.
