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
My practice is focused on protecting the rights of clients facing all types of charges in New York state courts. I handle a wide variety of felony and misdemeanor matters, from drug crimes, fraud and property crimes, including theft, to murder and manslaughter.
In addition to representing people in state courts, I also have extensive experience handling federal criminal matters in federal court. These cases often consist of charges involving drug crimes, such as trafficking, and racketeering and RICO matters, among other criminal cases. Issues involving the pursuit of compensation for police brutality and false arrests are also heard in federal court.
Also as part of my practice, I handle post-conviction issues such as probation violation and parole matters.
Seeking to Resolve Your Case, Prepared to Try It
It is important to note that your choice in a lawyer directly impacts the outcome of your case. Your attorney will be involved in the decisions that may lead to you being vindicated and freed of all charges, or doing prison time for your alleged crimes.
I strongly believe in approaching each criminal matter from a multifaceted perspective. Using my experience and insight as a criminal defense lawyer, I am able to seek the resolution of many felonies and misdemeanors that my clients are facing. I work tirelessly on their behalves to see that justice is served. Regardless of the outcome we are seeking, my negotiation skills are put to use. In some cases I am seeking the dismissal of charges; in other cases, I am preparing to aggressively argue the case at trial. When your future is in jeopardy, you need a lawyer like me who is able to pursue your case to the fullest extent of the law.
If you are facing charges, have been arrested or are under investigation by the police, exercise your rights. Talk to a lawyer as soon as possible. Any delay in seeking legal representation may impact your case. Also, exercise your right to remain silent. You do not have to talk to the police until you have talked to your lawyer first.
