There Is No Such Thing as a Detail – Everything Matters

There is no area of life that the law doesn’t touch in some way or another, and law is complicated because life is complicated.

And we understand that our most valuable asset – our reputation – can only be measured by the results that we achieve.

The New York legal system is brutally competitive as a matter of principle. Even if you don’t plan on going to court, you could damage your claim by missing a critical deadline or miscalculating the other side’s intentions. It is likely that you are going to need some assistance. Our Colonie, NY, attorneys offer brilliance, common sense, a solid work ethic, extensive experience, and a thorough awareness of client needs.

  • What is the difference between criminal procedure and civil procedure?
    When a crime has been committed, action is taken by a government agency against the person, persons, organization or other entity that violated the law. The first purpose of a criminal prosecution is punishment, which frequently consists of a fine or jail time. In a civil matter, the dispute is between two or more individuals or entities. The first purpose of a civil prosecution is obtaining compensation for the wronged person or entity. Settlement in a civil matter is generally an award of a money judgment. A criminal sentence is not imposed in a civil matter.
