New York Stalking Charge Lawyer
You may be surprised to learn that stalking is almost as aggressively prosecuted as aggravated harassment and other serious crimes. Law enforcement officers see stalking as an early inclination to commit more serious violent crimes against an individual. Therefore, if you have been charged with stalking, you would be well served to seek the advice of a skilled criminal defense lawyer.
The attorneys of Goldberg & Allen offer proven counsel and effective representation against a wide variety of misdemeanor and felony offenses in New York City. While we know that many harassment charges — including stalking — can be handled effectively, we are not a “quick pleas, quick fees” firm. We put in the work necessary to protect your rights and record.
Have You Been Accused of Stalking or Harassment?
Many people accused of stalking are confused when they are first made aware of the charges against them because they believed they were engaging in normal communication. However, in addition to physically following a person, stalking charges can include:
- Repeatedly calling someone at home or on their cell phone
- Sending continuous texts, emails, letters or faxes
- Internet following or cyberstalking
- Hacking into someone’s computer
- Possessing any form of surveillance, including video surveillance, audio tracks or digital images of a particular person
Though a simple misdemeanor, being convicted of or pleading to stalking could still have future negative consequences. Any criminal conviction could prevent you from obtaining a job, applying for school or a loan, renting an apartment or serving in the military, among other hindrances. We protect your future opportunities by providing the honest, direct representation you need to keep your record clean.
