Criminal Defense Lawyers in Troy
Serving Clients in Rensselaer, Saratoga & Albany Counties
Most people know that they need an attorney after they've been arrested, but so few realize that often the most important time to hire an attorney is before you've been arrested. We're all familiar with our “right to remain silent,” but you would be surprised how few people remember to exercise that right when the police “ask” you to come down to the police station to “straighten things out” or “tell your side of the story.” The police must advise you of your Miranda rights, and you should exercise them!
There are few things scarier than being accused of a crime. The police typically keep you in the dark, and often you don't even know what you've been accused of until you're hauled from your home to be brought before the judge. Most people have never been accused of such a thing before, and they don't know what to expect.
If you are facing criminal charges, you need a skilled and competent attorney on your side right away. Choose the Troy criminal defense attorneys at Frost & Kavanaugh.
Learn more about how we can protect your rights and fight for you by calling (518) 730-4222 or contacting us online.
Choose the Right Attorney
So how do you choose the attorney who can best protect you? There are three things you should look for in a criminal defense attorney: Experience, understanding, and affordability.
At Frost & Kavanaugh, we are widely experienced in the full gamut of criminal charges, from traffic infractions all the way to murder.
We have successfully gone to trial on many different types of felonies, including:
We are also well versed in misdemeanor matters, such as harassment, simple assault, and all traffic matters. Aside from handling thousands of cases, Attorney Frost has also represented someone featured on America's Most Wanted, where he took the matter to trial and got all charges dismissed.
Understanding of Your Situation
We well know that there are always collateral effects for anyone charged with a crime. Everyone has a family who will be affected by what you are accused of. Maybe that means the wage earner is in jail and the family can't pay their bills. Maybe that means you'll lose your license and can't bring children to school or elderly parents to doctor’s appointments. Maybe you're just scared. We understand that.
We also understand that often the person accused of the crime is incarcerated and can't come to our offices, so we will come to see you at the jail. On top of that, we realize that arrests don't always happen during business hours, which is why we have an emergency feature on our telephone answering system. You can always reach our criminal defense attorneys in Troy – day or night – when an emergency occurs.
If you or a loved one has been arrested, or the police want to talk and get "your side of the story," call Frost & Kavanaugh at (518) 730-4222. We are ready to help.
