Desk Appearance Tickets DAT If your future is at risk, your attorney can make all the difference.

Desk Appearance Ticket Lawyer in Brooklyn

Helping Clients Fight for Their Freedom Following a DAT

In New York, receiving a desk appearance ticket (DAT) means you have legally been arrested. It is an order to appear in court and respond to the accusation against you. Because individuals are not handcuffed during this type of arrest, many people confuse a DAT with a mere traffic ticket and assume that the DAT does not really matter. It does.

You will still be facing the same potential consequences for a conviction—usually up to a year in jail—as you would if you were arrested in any other way. If this has happened to you, call the Brooklyn desk appearance ticket attorney at The Law Offices of Wilson Antonio LaFaurie for a free consultation about what comes next.

Why Did I Receive a DAT?

In most cases, desk appearance tickets are reserved for nonviolent misdemeanor charges.

The Importance of Retaining Your Own Lawyer Right Away

If you wait for the court to assign you a legal aid attorney or public defender, you may end up significantly decreasing your chances of a positive outcome. In most cases, you will not actually appear in court or meet the public defender until weeks after you receive the desk appearance ticket. By that time, important evidence in your favor may have disappeared. Make sure you contact a criminal defense attorney sooner, rather than later.

You need someone who can take swift action on your behalf to:

  • Obtain copies of any videos of the alleged crime scene
  • Interview any witnesses to the alleged crime
  • Carefully and thoroughly review your case and prepare a strong defense
  • Offer the one-on-one attention you deserve
