New York: Henrietta Aggravated Assault Attorney
If you've been charged with a violent crime such as assault, armed robbery or assault with a deadly weapon, you should consult and hire a criminal defense attorney as soon as possible.
In assault cases, interviews with witnesses are a key part of building a defense and learning what happened. In the best-case scenario, your lawyer will have the time to find and interview witnesses early-on after the incident, before memories fade or the witnesses become hard to find.
Experienced Rochester Criminal Defense Lawyer: More Than 30 Years' Experience
My name is Kenneth C. Hyland, and I have been practicing law for more than 30 years. My solo law practice focuses only on criminal defense work, and every client gets my full attention and the benefits of working with an advocate with more than three decades of criminal courts experience.
I am an aggressive advocate for my clients, and I always take the time to explain the criminal justice process, making sure they understand what will happen and my estimate of the likely outcome.
Negotiating Plea Bargains and Preparing for Trial
It should go without saying that my goal in every case is to keep my clients out of jail. Sometimes, that is best accomplished through plea negotiations with the prosecuting attorney — in which case my client agrees to plead guilty to a lesser offense that will not require jail time. In other cases, however, my client and I may decide that the best chance for a positive outcome is to take the case to trial and push for a not-guilty verdict. Because of my extensive trial experience — including experience handling major felony trials for both the prosecution and defense — I am always ready to pursue either strategy.
