Criminal Defense Lawyers
Serving New York City

Work with a Results-Driven Boutique Law Firm

Facing the criminal justice system can be an overwhelming experience. Whether you are involved in an investigation by a law enforcement agency, suspect you are under suspicion, or have already been charged with an offense, your life has suddenly and seriously become complicated. You may be facing misdemeanor or felony charges or multiple charges based on a single incident. Regardless of the circumstances, you need to have the assurance that a sophisticated and experienced criminal defender is in your corner from the inception who will put in an aggressive effort on your behalf.

That is when you should consider Hamilton Clarke, LLP, a boutique law firm serving clients facing allegations of crimes that can range from murder to corporate white collar crimes. At our firm, you can work with a legal team that understands what is at stake for you, your family, your job or career, and your future. Our criminal defense attorneys have the experience you need and the highest standards of integrity to give you their best effort. We know that our reputation depends on the quality of service we provide to our clients which is why we work relentlessly to help you secure the most favorable result available.

State & Federal Criminal Charges

Both state and federal criminal investigations and charges are run by agencies and prosecutors bent on getting a conviction. They will use every available avenue and action to obtain evidence that can be used against you. That is why it necessary to enlist our services immediately before talking to any law enforcement agency, whether state or federal, so that we can ensure your rights are protected, that you do not do inadvertent harm to your own cause, and that you are treated fairly and per the law throughout.

You may be under investigation by the District Attorney’s Office, the U.S. Attorney’s Office, the FBI, DEA, ATF (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives) or other law enforcement groups. Dealing with these groups can be intimidating which is why you should rely on effective representation.

Hamilton Clarke, LLP represents clients across every spectrum of criminal charge, including but not limited to domestic violence charges, theft crimes, sex crimes, white collar crimes ranging from bank fraud to cybercrimes, tax evasion, money laundering, and more to federal crimes related to violations of controlled substance laws, RICO, interstate fraud, and more. We also represent clients facing DUI, robbery, arson, gun possession, and more as well as individuals charged with violating parole or post-release supervision. In cases where you are eligible, we also handle criminal record sealing to clear your name.

Why You Need Effective Legal Representation

The importance of retaining aggressive representation cannot be overstated when you are facing criminal charges. It is important to remember that not only can criminal penalties like jail time and fines be imposed but that a conviction will result in a permanent criminal record. That record can impact your future ability to be hired for new employment, to qualify for professional licenses, to be accepted into educational institutions or even to qualify with a future landlord for housing. At Hamilton Clarke, LLP, we will pursue every legal avenue to help you fight charges, to gain a dismissal, reduced sentencing, or other favorable outcome.
