Needless to say, contending with an Arrest is difficult. Whether your Arrest came after a question and answer session with the police (DWI for example), Bench Warrant, or caught you by surprise, it is important to know your rights. When there is an Arrest, the defendant is considered innocent by law enforcement. Even so, you must be extremely careful how you handle yourself once in custody. Remember to remain silent if possible. The 5th Amendment affords you this right, and it should be used, along with your right to counsel. Whatever information you provide police could have a detrimental effect on your Criminal Court case. That is why it is so critical to have a Long Island Criminal Lawyer represent you. These rights are available to you regardless of whether you were arrested for a state court matter, any misdemeanor violation, Assault or Petite Larceny or a variety of felony crimes including but not limited to a Sex Crime, or a Gun Crime or Rape matter. If you have been arrested for a White Collar Crime in a Federal Court case it is important that you know these rights pertain to you as well. A White Collar Crime includes matters like Mail Fraud, or Bank Fraud. Facing down the Federal Government can be scary and it is all the more important to obtain a Federal Criminal Lawyer if you are in this situation. The Office of Stephen Bilkis & Associates, PLLC has qualified and experienced lawyers ready to help you create a defense for you and obtain the best possible outcome for your case. We have offices not only in Westchester County but throughout New York City.

If you were the subject of an Arrest, yet came home after you were booked, you received a Desk Appearance Ticket or DAT. Remember here that just because you were "let go" does not make your case any less serious. It simply means that you were not taken to jail. You will still be expected to attend your criminal Arraignment hearing.

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.
