Criminal Defense

Whether you are a witness or a target of a law enforcement investigation or have been arrested and charged with a crime, our combination of prosecutorial and defense experience is invaluable when confronting the government and preparing a successful defense strategy. From the minute that a person comes into contact with law enforcement, every decision becomes critical. It can begin as a subpoena, a search warrant, a knock on the door, or a flashing light behind you. Regardless of the circumstance, every word that is said, action that is taken, phone call that is made, and document that is produced can have a significant impact on how a case gets resolved.

Without question, the most important decision to be made is the choice of counsel. At Smith & King, LLC, we have been dealing with federal and state criminal investigations and prosecutions for over two decades and routinely handle matters before the District Attorney’s Offices in New York County, Kings County, Queens County, Bronx County, Nassau County, Suffolk County, and Westchester County, as well as the United States Attorney’s Offices throughout the country and the New York State Attorney General. These matters range from white collar cases involving mortgage fraud, securities fraud, wire fraud, tax fraud, health care fraud, mail fraud, construction industry fraud, public corruption, larcenies, embezzlement, subpoena compliance, and witness representation to DWI/DUI, domestic violence, orders of protection, assault, and drug related charges.

We represent our clients from the inception of an investigation through arrest, arraignment, discovery, motions, trial and appeals. Our careful preparation, extensive investigation, zealous advocacy, and deep knowledge of the process and our clients makes us extraordinarily successful in avoiding charges if possible, negotiating favorable resolutions when appropriate and aggressively fighting charges when necessary.
