New York City Aggravated Harassment Lawyer
New York criminal laws covering harassment and aggravated harassment charges leave plenty of room for interpretation. Not all cases involve any physical contact whatsoever, and more and more they involve phone calls, text messaging, taking pictures or other non-violent actions.
Whatever the incident or relationship that led to this charge for you, however, one thing is certain: You now risk all the consequences of conviction for a Class A misdemeanor (aggravated harassment in the second degree) or even a felony (first degree).
Do You Need Serious, Determined Protection of Your Record and Future?
What could a criminal conviction mean for you? Loss of your professional license, security clearance or job? Future opportunities at college for your child? We encourage anyone charged with aggravated harassment, anywhere in the five boroughs, to get experienced legal counsel. Too often, people underestimate the penalties and long-term impact that can come with a harassment conviction.
A New York City aggravated harassment attorney at our firm will hear you out and take you seriously, recognizing that allegations against you may be wrong or that if you did break the law, you didn’t realize it. Anyone can be accused of improper touching in the subway, for example, and almost anyone who pursues communication after a breakup might be accused of stalking.
