A Review of the Long Island Criminal Courts from a Long Island Criminal Lawyer.
Often people refer to Long Island as if it is one jurisdiction. However, what people believe to be Long Island is rather Nassau County and Suffolk County. They represent two separate Counties and each has its own Criminal Court. Thus, it's incumbent on you to hire a Long Island Criminal Lawyer that is skilled and knowledgeable in both Nassau County and Suffolk County Criminal Courts. Moreover, each County has its own series of town and village courts that can deal with misdemeanors and traffic violations. But for the purposes of this article we will stay within the jurisdiction of each County's Criminal Courts.
The Office of the District Attorney of Nassau County takes Crime very seriously. In Fact the prosecution of Nassau County DWI cases was highlighted on the CBS television show 60 minutes.
