Violent Felonies

New York Criminal Defense Lawyers For Violent Felony Crimes

The criminal defense attorneys of the New York City law firm of Siriano & Bernstein, P.C. fight for the rights of those accused of violent offenses and crimes against persons. The state of New York classifies violent crimes as a separate category of offenses, and the criminal courts have been particularly harsh when it comes to adjudicating violent offenses—particularly if the crime is a felony.

Over the years, criminal defense attorney Anthony Siriano has represented hundreds of individuals who have been charged with all classifications of violent felony offenses. They have built their reputations as tough, aggressive lawyers who obtain acquittals and reduced sentences for their clients. If you’ve been charged with a violent felony, contact our office in the Bronx to discuss your case.

Violent Felony Offenses in the State of New York

New York’s penal code divides violent felonies into five separate classes: A, B, C, D, and E. Anthony Siriano of New York represents clients charged with violent felonies at all levels. Some of these crimes include:

  • Sexual Offenses/Rape
  • Child Abuse
  • Homicide
  • Attempted Murder
  • Possession of Weapons or Firearms
  • Burglary with Violence
  • Robbery
  • Arson
  • Gang Violence
  • Domestic Violence
  • Witness Intimidation
  • Crimes of Terrorism
  • Placing a False Bomb or Hazardous Substance
  • Making a Terrorist Threat

Most of these offenses have several sub-categories, which will determine at what level of the offense you are charged. All violent felonies in the state of New York carry a potential prison sentence.

Private Criminal Defense Lawyers in Manhattan, The Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, and Staten Island

If you’ve been arrested for a violent felony, you need to take your legal defense seriously. If you decide to retain the services of one of our veteran criminal defense lawyers, we will review all aspects of the prosecutorial case against you: police reports, medical records, witness and victim statement, photographs, physical evidence, et cetera. Only when we have a total understanding of the events that led to your arrest will we begin developing a defense strategy.

If it is determined by our criminal defense team that a negotiated plea with the New York State Attorney’s Office is in your best interest, we will present it to you, but you will have the final say in the matter. In many instances, we are able to get a violent felony case dismissed without going to trial. If you do have to stand trial, however, you will have the benefit of criminal defense lawyers with over half a century of combined experience at your side.
