Brooklyn Criminal Court

Call Now for a Free Consultation
24/7 for Emergency Help and Advice on Bail

Suffering an arrest and being held in custody or receiving a Desk Appearance Ticket (DAT) means that you will now be dealing with the Brooklyn Criminal Court system. The Criminal Court handles a multitude of cases including returns on a warrant, misdemeanors, felonies and DWI violations, not to mention Drug crime and Sex Crime matters. In the case of a misdemeanor violation, the Brooklyn Criminal Court will deal with the matter from the initial Arraignment process through the trial and sentencing phase. In the case of a felony, the court will hear the arraignment and indictment phases. After this, felony cases are transferred to the Supreme Court. Brooklyn Traffic Ticket violations are not handled by this court (if need information for this, click on the link). For information with regard to your specific matter contact a Brooklyn Criminal Lawyer from our office. Moreover, if this matter involves the Federal Court sitting in Brooklyn (the Eastern District) contact a Federal Criminal Lawyer from our office for supplemental information

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.
