Law Office of Victor Knapp, Esq.Criminal Defense Lawyer
Queens, New York

Victor Knapp as Your Criminal Defense Attorney?

Whether they are graded as misdemeanors or felonies, whether they affect juvenile or adult defendants, all criminal charges have one trait in common: they all have the power to result in a conviction which can change the course of your life.

The New York and federal justice system impose very harsh criminal penalties, and if you are convicted, the legal repercussions could turn your life completely upside down. You could be sentenced to months, years, decades, or even life in prison, and could also be fined with thousands or tens of thousands of dollars. You stand to lose your reputation, your career stability, and even your liberty itself.

You also risk receiving a criminal record, which can continue to interfere with your daily life long after your sentence has been served and your fines have been paid. With a record attached to your name, you may experience difficulties in matters of employment, immigration status, housing, being approved for professional certifications, and even your personal relationships. Furthermore, these general penalties do not even begin to address the miscellaneous consequences which can arise out of specific convictions, such as loss of a driver’s license for a DWI, or mandatory listing with the Sex Offender Registry for certain sex crimes


The bottom line is that if you have been accused of committing a crime in New York, it is an extremely serious matter which requires immediate attention from a knowledgeable defense attorney who has experience handling the sorts of allegations you are facing now. If you have been charged with a felony or misdemeanor in New York City or Long Island, you can turn to the law offices of Victor Knapp, Esq., for help.
