      Aggressive Representation for Serious Criminal Cases

      At Foley Griffin, our experienced lawyers have the skills and resources to handle a wide range of criminal cases, including:

      Tackling Federal Crimes

      Federal offenses are complex and nuanced, requiring the skill and knowledge of a dedicated attorney who knows the law. These crimes vary greatly, from professionals facing allegations of fraud or embezzlement to officials embroiled in corruption scandals, individuals charges with trafficking drugs, accountants facing tax issues, and more. These issues are investigated by federal agencies, such as the IRS, DEA, FBI, ICE, and others and complaints generally include allegations of fraud, serious drug crimes, computer-related crimes, hate crimes, and other violations of federal acts and laws.

      If you have been arrested and are facing prosecution from the Offices of the United States Attorney, our federal criminal defense lawyers at Foley Griffin will help protect your rights, future, and freedom. We know what it takes to stand in front of a grand jury and ensure your side of the story is heard. We are also diligent in our representation, tailoring our legal strategies to your unique circumstances, while always keeping the bigger picture in mind. 

      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.
