Any violation of the law in New York tends to carry extreme consequences for the perpetrator if it leads to a conviction. However, we often see our clients initially underestimating just how much a criminal conviction might affect their futures. At Villarini & Henry, L.L.P., we make it our first priority to inform clients of the short-term and long-term ramifications of any judgment a court might make against them, regardless of the perceived severity of the infraction in question.
We find that some of the crimes people have the highest tendency to underestimate are property crimes and minor drug crimes. If you or someone you care for were to receive a conviction for such an offense, the consequences may range beyond the expected.
