Brooklyn Criminal Defense Attorney

If you face serious criminal charges, you need a lawyer who understands the court system where your case will be tried. When your future is at risk, the attorney who sits beside you can make the difference between an outcome you can live with and one that you can't.

I am Brooklyn criminal defense lawyer Wilson LaFaurie. As a former state prosecutor in Kings County and Brooklyn, I have handled thousands of criminal cases from both a prosecution and a defense point of view. I know what prosecutors need to put a case together. I also know how to take that case apart from a defense point of view. From my law office in Brooklyn, I represent people throughout New York City, Nassau County and Suffolk County.

Experienced Defense Against Criminal Charges

I defend people who face all types of New York state misdemeanor and felony charges, including homicide, manslaughter, drug offenses, theft, fraud, burglary and robbery. As an experienced federal criminal defense attorney, I also handle cases in federal court, such as federal drug trafficking charges, racketeering, and civil cases where compensation is sought for false arrest, excessive force and police misconduct. I also handle probation and parole cases. In addition, I represent minors who have been charged with juvenile crimes.

Seeking to Resolve Your Case, Prepared to Try It

I believe in a two-pronged approach to criminal defense. The majority of criminal charges can and should be resolved. I will work hard to do that. However, in order to negotiate a satisfactory resolution, you will need a lawyer who is known for trying cases successfully. The reputation of your attorney can make the difference between a satisfactory plea offer and a trial you do not want. When your freedom and livelihood are at stake, you need a lawyer who is willing to take your case as far as it needs to go.

When choosing a criminal defense lawyer, you cannot afford to take a risk with the wrong lawyer, and you certainly cannot afford to delay hiring the best. An hour of delay on your behalf allows law enforcement to initiate, investigate and indict. Gerry Spence, one of America's most honored criminal defense lawyers once said, "Criminal cases are won on opening statements, not closing arguments."
