Responding To A Federal Or New York State Criminal Allegation

Whether you are dealing with the federal government, or the State of New York, the government does its homework before making a criminal allegation, but they may have missed important facts and circumstances in reaching their decision. Attorney M. Bradford Randolph is an experienced criminal attorney in both New York and Federal Courts who can help you to identify facts and circumstances that may reduce the seriousness of the charges against you or prove your innocence.

Attorney Randolph can also help you to determine if a plea is appropriate, or the matter should go to trial. Mr. Randolph can represent you at trial, if that is the route that you choose.

Authorities must prove intent

There are many types of federal and New York State crimes. What these crimes have in common is that the government must prove that you intended to commit the crime.

Attorney Randolph can help you to identify and understand the key facts and circumstances in your case that may ameliorate any sentence or prove your innocence. People often quickly forget, or do not clearly remember, all of the facts and circumstances of their personal lives or their business activities that could be important in understanding actions you may have taken that are critical to the government's case against you.

Retaining counsel

If you are arrested or you receive a summons, it can be important that you seek counsel before speaking to an officer or provide documents pursuant to the summons. Attorney Randolph can help you to decide whether to respond to questions asked, or provide documents requested by a summons for yourself or your business. Mr. Randolph can represent you in court, as well as in your communications with a federal or state agency that sent you a summons.
