YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO DEFEND YOURSELF

SELF DEFENSE OR JUSTIFICATION

IS A COMPLETE DEFENSE 

SELF DEFENSE
OUR MANHATTAN AND WESTCHESTER CRIMINAL DEFENSE LAWYERS
WHO DEFEND ASSAULT CASES BASED UPON SELF DEFENSE

Our New York City criminal defense lawyers and White Plains criminal defense attorneys know that whenever they are called to a situation involving a phycial altercation, they arrest whoever looks less injured. Our experienced NYC and Westchester criminal defense lawyers know that just because you were arrested, that does not mean that you are guilty. New York law firmly recognizes that right of a person who is being attacked to defend themselves from both the actual use of force as well as the threat of force. You are also allowed to use reasonable force to protect not only yourselves, but to protect other people and even your property.  Our White Plains criminal defense lawyers and Manhattan criminal defense attorneys have won acquitals for our clients who were charged with assault, assault with a weapon and menacing based upon self defense and justification. 

Our criminal defense team is made up of both former prosecutors and criminal defense attorneys with decades of experienced in the New York Criminal Courts. 

WE FIGHT FOR OUR CLIENTS-

THE SAME YOU YOU HAD TO FIGHT FOR YOURSELF
