New York City Criminal Defense Lawyer 

New York City Criminal Defense Lawyer

Defense Attorney for Felony and Misdemeanor Crimes in the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Queens

In any encounter with New York City law enforcement, a resident or visitor is at a severe disadvantage. Police and prosecutors have extensive resources at their disposal. They are allowed to employ sly interrogation tactics to deceive and confuse (but not coerce) a person into revealing incriminating information, consenting to a search, or even confessing to a crime. The individual, on the other hand, is required by law to obey police commands and make only truthful statements. 

If you become involved in a police investigation, whether you are immediately placed under arrest or not, the outcome for you will largely depend on the skill of your criminal defense attorney. You are entitled to many legal rights and protections, but only a qualified and experienced criminal defense attorney can advise you on these rights. The police are required to inform you only of your basic Miranda rights, and then only after you have been officially taken into custody and placed under arrest.

When you hire Watford Jackson, PLLC, you can be confident that you will get both the savvy legal advice you need and an aggressive advocate who will make sure that your rights are protected every step of the way.

We have practiced criminal law in New York City for over 45 years combined. We have successfully defended people accused of crimes ranging from misdemeanors like driving while intoxicated and harassment to felony assault and murder.
