Frequently Asked Criminal Defense Questions

When you are confronted with criminal charges, you may have a lot of questions. Some of the most common questions we receive at Cimasi Law Office include:

What are my rights after an arrest or criminal charge?

Facing a criminal charge can be intimidating, but it is important to remember and protect your rights such as:

  • You do not have to speak to law enforcement. The Fifth Amendment gives you the right to remain silent.
  • You have the right to fair and humane treatment in any interaction with law enforcement.
  • You have the right to an attorney. Contacting an attorney as soon as possible can help you ensure all of these rights are protected. In many cases, you can have an attorney present at the scene of your arrest or later at police questioning.

How will an arrest affect my job or education?

An arrest on your record can seriously impact your life opportunities and goals. Even if law enforcement does not convict you, another institution could punish you.

New York medical professionals could face consequences from the state licensing board. College students could also face serious penalties from their university for breaching the school's code of conduct.

Attorney Michael Cimasi has the necessary experience and licensing to represent you in court, as well as in front of medical or university boards.

Why should I hire an attorney after an arrest?

You only have the rights you can protect. Hiring an attorney can help you protect those rights.
