Have you been arrested for a crime?

When facing charges for a misdemeanor or felony offense, the trial skills of your New York City criminal lawyer are a critical element in the outcome of your case. You cannot take chances in cases in which your freedom could be taken from you by the criminal justice system. Our early involvement in your case could mean the difference between freedom and a conviction.

H. Benjamin Perez & Associates, P.C. is ready to protect your rights for numerous criminal charges, including:

When we take on a case, our goal is to protect your rights as a defendant. The police in New York City make serious errors every day, and your case may be open to a dismissal for certain actions that have been taken during your arrest, in searching your person or your home or car, or in the interrogation process.

One of the most critical points in a criminal case is the arraignment. We can serve as immediate counsel for arrested individuals. We are available 24/7 and can provide the formidable advocacy you need to protect you in questioning and represent you at arraignment. The arraignment hearing is a critical point in the criminal justice process, and without aggressive defense counsel at your side, there could be disastrous results.
