An Arrest Doesn't Equal Criminal Charges

Being cited, arrested or accused of a crime can be an emotionally devastating experience. However, an arrest does not always amount to criminal charges being filed against you. In fact, most people don't realize that the prosecutor, not the police, actually is the agency who files charges.

Our law firm aggressively pursues the dropping of charges before your first court date. You can depend on The Law Firm of Jonathan Kaye to give you excellent legal counsel and criminal defense representation.

Having an attorney who is experienced in criminal defense is crucial to the outcome of your case. As a former New York City prosecutor, Jonathan Kaye has the knowledge and experience to assist you with your legal defense. He knows the theories of the prosecution, as well as its charging/negotiating guidelines, and is able to define a legal strategy based on this information. He has vast experience dealing with the criminal courts and has developed relationships with these judges and prosecutors.

As a lawyer who focuses exclusively on criminal defense, Attorney Kaye will review the facts and possible defense in your case and give you an immediate assessment. If you hire a criminal lawyer early in the process, especially one with "insider" knowledge, he may be able to convince the prosecution to not file criminal charges even after you have been arrested. Our law firm may be able to get your case dismissed, jail time reduced, probation without jail, weekends or community service..
