In January 2020 an extensive overhaul of the New York Criminal Procedure Law has become effective. Bail, discovery and speedy trial have been substantially modified in New York Criminal cases. The law is always changing and you need a lawyer who stays up to date with all of the changes in the law. Contact our lawyers today to discuss how New York’s new discovery law can help you fight your case. Often cases can be won using procedural issues. Speedy trial, suppression and discovery motions are commonly used by experienced criminal defense lawyers to win cases.
Often, seeking suppression of evidence may be the most effective way to fight your criminal case. In cases such as Gun and Drug cases a successful suppression motion will likely result in dismissal of the charges. In other types of criminal cases a successful suppression motion may make it much harder for the prosecutor to prove the case. The lawyers at Tilem & Associates have conducted hundreds of suppression hearings.Schedule Your Case Evaluation
