New York's Bail Reform Laws

In April 2019, the State of New York passed legislation to eliminate cash bail and pretrial detention in most misdemeanor, nonviolent felony, and Class A drug felony cases. In addition, judges must consider a defendant's financial situation before setting bail in eligible cases and are encouraged to release defendants until the court date, unless they pose a serious flight risk. Police officers will now issue appearance tickets to those arrested for low-level offenses instead of jail time or expensive bail payments.

While the new law may mean you may spend less time in jail, it is important that you retain a lawyer in order to adhere to your court dates and put yourself in the best possible position to face your charges. Our firm can stand by your side and help you understand the charges against you and your legal options.

5 / 5 stars

Brian Griffin is a master in the courtroom! He got both of my charges dismissed. The prosecutors wanted to adjourn to a further date but he refused. Amazing, this is the second time I've worked with him. DWI or other criminal charges call Brian.
