Westchester County Arrest

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

An Arrest is an experience you will not soon forget. It is not only embarrassing but stressful. You may have been caught up in a unique set of circumstances, or the Arrest may have been the result of a conversation with police. Perhaps you were caught driving under the influence on alcohol (DWI), or were arrested because of a bench warrant. What ever crime you are being accused of, your rights as a defendant will be the same. From the very beginning of your case, you are innocent. Everyone is considered innocent until it is proven in Criminal Court. Also, you must know that whatever information you provide to the police may have a negative impact on your case. It is therefore recommended that you seek a Westchester County Criminal Lawyer right away, and that you do not speak during questioning. This is your right, and it is important that you avail yourself it during this sensitive time. Whether you are being charged with Assault, or something like Petite Larceny, a misdemeanor or Sex Crime, like Rape or possibly Child Pornography, or felony, you will need to be very mindful of exercising these rights. A case brought in Federal Court against you like a White Collar Crime (Securities Fraud, and/or Bank Fraud matter and/or Mail Fraud) will require that you are well versed in your rights and that you have contacted a Federal Criminal Lawyer to assist you. Going up against the Federal Government is particularly intimidating, and it is highly recommended that you secure the advice a Criminal Lawyer as soon as possible. Stephen Bilkis & Associates, PLLC have qualified and experienced lawyers that are ready to assist you. We have offices in Westchester County, Suffolk County and Nassau County.

Receiving a Desk Appearance Ticket means that you were in effect arrested, and you will have the same rights and responsibilities. The only difference with a DAT is that you are not ever taken into custody. You will need to be sure to go to your Arraignment at the date/time noted on your DAT.

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.
