If you are facing an Arrest, or your loved one has been arrested, you know how stressful it can be. You may have stumbled onto an unfortunate situation and you were stopped and questioned by police prior to your arrest as may occur in a DWI matter. Or perhaps the Arrest was the result of a Gun Crime, Bench Warrant or a traffic ticket. Regardless of your unique situation, it is important remember an arrest does not mean that you are guilty. If you are the target of a pending Arrest, or you have experienced an Arrest it is important that you contact a Bronx Criminal Lawyer without delay. Anything you choose to say to the authorities can have an effect on your criminal case. Your Bronx Arrest Lawyer will tell you that asserting your 5th Amendment rights (to remain silent), and availing yourself of your right to have counsel is the best approach for a defendant that has suffered an Arrest, or an individual that is being investigated by law enforcement. This is true whether you were arrested or not and regardless of the type of crime be it an Assault or Petite Larceny or a felony sex crime, which could include Child Pornography or Sodomy. Additionally, federal law enforcement officials can make an arrest, generally these are prosecuted in Federal Court by a US Attorney. A Federal Court crime could include matters such as a White Collar Crime (things like Bank Fraud, Securities Fraud and/or Mail Fraud). If you are facing the considerable task of dealing with the Federal Government in a criminal case it is extremely important to obtain the advice of a New York Federal Criminal Lawyer. At Stephen Bilkis & Associates, PLLC, we are ready to help and offer you a free initial case evaluation. We have offices not only in the Bronx, but Manhattan, Brooklyn, Staten Island, Westchester County and Suffolk County.

If you have been issued a Desk Appearance Ticket you should know that a DAT is considered an Arrest. The difference with a DAT, however, is that you will not be taken into custody and held to await your Arraignment. Rather, you will be released and be required to return and the time prescribed by the police.

The Police Department may interrogate anyone that has been accused of a crime. There has recently been a new policy enacted which increases the powers of the District Attorney to be able to systematically interrogate defendants being held in custody. You will be questioned regardless of whether you are guilty or innocent. Even if you feel you have nothing to hide and are innocent, it is extremely important to not respond to any police questioning without the aid of a Bronx Arrest Lawyer. In this circumstance, whatever you might say can have a serious effect on your case. During this time it is highly advisable that you have the guidance and protection of a New York Criminal Lawyer. Having your lawyer present can prevent any questioning from taking place, and will ensure that your rights are protected. Your Criminal Lawyer will advise the police that you are exercising your right to remain silent (the 5th Amendment) and you will not be required to speak to the interrogators.

Client Reviews
My wife and I met under some unconventional circumstances. After I had some legal problems, Mr Bilkis and his firm continually got me out of trouble. I then had his firm represented my wife and he got her out of trouble! We are still married and got our ways straightened away. We both can't thank him enough for saving our lives and our families! J.P.
I contacted Stephen Bilkis' office for an issue regarding a family member and I could not be happier with the results. I have recommended the firm to friends and family, all of whom were also ecstatic with Mr. Bilkis and all members of his staff. P.R.
I was in need of legal assistance for a very sensitive matter for a family member. I contacted the law offices of Stephen Bilkis & Associates, PLLC and was met with staff whose demeanor was supportive, compassionate and professional. The lawyer handling our case had many years of experience and treated us as if we were his own family. Our experience was so good, and we became so close to all of the staff and all of the attorneys who assisted us, that we consider them our extended family and continue to send them our home baked gifts for the holidays. P.A.K.
I hired Stephen Bilkis and Associates to represent me on a legal matter a few months ago and am grateful for their swift action and resolution on my behalf. I was impressed with their professionalism and would recommend them to friends and family in a heartbeat. M.B.
