If you are facing possible criminal charges, getting a highly qualified and experienced defense lawyer can often mean the difference between getting a fair trial and avoiding a wrongful conviction or unjust and unfair disposition of your criminal case.

If you have been arrested many related issues may arise, for example you may be facing deportation and/or other immigration related legal issues, in which case you will need a lawyer experienced with both Immigration law and Criminal law; and for perhaps securities fraud you may need a criminal lawyer who also specialized in securities law. The Bronx County Bar Association referral service will point you in the right direction, so that you get the most out of your Bronx Bar referred criminal lawyer consultation

Besides your freedom, other facets of your life are in jeopardy as well. For instance, a conviction becomes a part of your permanent criminal record and may have an impact on future work possibilities, and for certain types of crimes even your driving privileges can be taken away.

At the Bronx County Bar Association, we can easily refer you to a reputable and experienced attorney who practices law in the Bronx. Our referral service has a multitude of pre-screened lawyers with expertise in New York State laws. As a part of the lawyer referral review process, to ensure the high integrity of our referrals, each defense lawyer in the Bronx County Bar Association referral panel is not only fully accredited to practice criminal law in the state of New York, but they must also be highly reputable, effective in court, skillful, personable and most importantly, competent. Do not compromise your freedom by hiring an unqualified and/or otherwise incompetent attorney.
