What is the three strikes law?

Many New York residents are unaware of the 'three strikes law' and how it can affect their liberty. This is why it is important to have a strong criminal defense and not overlook this process. People facing criminal charges, whether felonies or misdemeanors, may benefit from having skilled professionals advising them of their rights, fighting on their behalf from the onset.

What must be shown to prove drug possession?

To present a successful criminal defense, understanding the charges one is facing is very important. Knowledge of the law, such as what one is being charged with and what must be proven in a court of law, is crucial for understanding how one can defend against criminal charges.

What is my constitutional right to privacy?

There is a common misconception that when an Albany resident sees a policeman or woman knocking on the door, he or she should open it and allow them to come inside the house to search it. This is not the case-police officers either need a warrant to enter and search private property or should seek and receive consent. It is important to understand that giving consent is not essential and without it, evidence seized from a warrantless search is most likely going to be inadmissible in court.
