Welcome to Reasonable Doubt New York


The concept of reasonable doubt stems from the fundamental principle of our society that it is far worse to convict an innocent man than to let a guilty man go free.  As anyone who has ever been in trouble with the law knows, a "reasonable doubt" can mean the difference between freedom and spending time behind bars.

Hundreds of thousands of people are arrested each year in New York City alone, many for the first time.  Facing the criminal justice system in New York can be a confusing and incredibly stressful experience.  The police ask you to come down to the precinct to answer a few questions and before you know it you're behind bars.  You get a phone call in the middle of the night to learn a loved one has been arrested, what do you do?  Hopefully, this blog can help.

This blog is devoted to helping New Yorkers navigate through their criminal defense problems. I will be posting some brief guides to questions that I am frequently asked.  I may re-post some questions that I have answered on some other legal question sites. And I will also be happy to answer as many of your general New York criminal defense questions that you submit as I can.

All answers are for information purposes only. Answering this question or any future questions does not form any attorney-client relationship. Be mindful, that answers are limited by the limited facts presented by the questioner and are not meant to take the place of competent legal advice by an attorney fully informed of all the facts surrounding your case. However, be aware that nothing posted in a public forum such as this can be deemed confidential or privileged communication. For a privileged private consultation, contact me at 212-385-8600 or via my website
