 Criminal Law/Defense

Regardless of whether the matter begins with a criminal charge or investigation, obtaining aggressive legal representation immediately is critical. Learning your rights and options will help avoid or minimize any adverse consequences.

But that’s only half the story.

The other half of the criminal conviction story is about consequences that the world-at-large can impose on you long after your official sentence has been served. We feel strongly that what makes our criminal defense practice different from other firms is that we take the job of informing and preparing clients for what’s ahead as seriously as we do the task of preparing their defense and aggressively representing them in court.

Our attorneys (Joseph P. Cataldo and Cornelius Madera) spend significant time getting to know the people they’ll be defending by going over the facts and explaining the law so that clients understand all of their legal rights and options. This translates into a more thoroughly prepared and effective criminal defense strategy and, ultimately, a more compelling case for obtaining an acquittal, dismissal or favorable disposition or plea agreement for our clients.”
