Having recently experienced an arrest or receiving a Desk Appearance Ticket (DAT) is not only a stressful experience, but brings up a lot of new questions and concerns regarding the Criminal Court process. The Long Island Criminal Courts handle a wide array of cases. Long Island consists of two Counties and each has jurisdiction over matters that happen with in its borders These two counties are Nassau County Criminal Court and the Suffolk County Criminal Court. The types of cases the preside over can range from warrant returns, felonies such as Grand Larceny to misdemeanors such as driving under the influence violations DWI or DWAI. With a misdemeanor, both Long Island Criminal Courts have jurisdiction over the matter from the initial Arraignment to the conclusion of the case. For a felony, the criminal court will handle the case up to indictment, after that the case will be transferred to the County Court.

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.
