Protect Your Rights And Challenge Criminal Charges
When criminal charges call your integrity into question, you might feel like police, prosecutors, and even your friends and family already assume the worst. However, you are innocent until proven guilty. A defense argument that casts enough doubt may be all you need to recover your reputation.
I am Kurt T. Richards, and I am dedicated to protecting your rights and fighting criminal charges. As your criminal defense lawyer, I will be honest about the possible penalties you may face and how I can strategize to improve your chances of avoiding them.
Interdisciplinary Defense Based On Compassion
Most of my cases involve a crossover between family law matters and criminal law. With decades of experience working with families in a variety of circumstances, I understand how closely related these issues can be.
At Kurt T. Richards, P.C., I have successfully represented clients against several types of misdemeanor and felony criminal charges across New York, including:
- Assault and domestic violence
- Theft and fraud
- Reckless endangerment and child-related offenses
- DWI and other traffic offenses
- Weapons charges
- Drug offenses
The outcome of your criminal case may impact the outcome of a current or future family law case. For example, drug charges could risk your ability to keep custody of your children. I know how critical a strong defense could be for you and your family.
