How Does The Legal Process Work in New York?

In the state of New York, the first step of the defense process is having your case represented at an arraignment hearing. Your attorneys can support you in your chances of pleading either guilty or not guilty after your charges have been read. This is the opportunity at which your lawyer may need to request bail, and the judge must determine whether they will grant bail.

Following this, you are entitled to have at least one initial hearing, where your criminal defense lawyers and the prosecution must both demonstrate evidence from the case, along with any testimonies of witnesses. In addition to investigating the details of your case with utter scrutiny, along with arguing the case for your liberty and rightful intentions, our attorneys are ready to do everything in their power to mitigate the harsh consequences which often arise in felony cases. We are ready to appeal your case or support you at hearings for parole, anything that can mitigate the potentially harsh penalties.
