Handling Civil Litigation & Criminal Defense Cases Throughout the Kingston, NY Area

When people are unhappy with a law firm, their most common complaint is that the lawyers didn’t seem passionate. In other words, the attorneys simply didn’t fight for the case with the zealous commitment they’d have shown if it were their own family members or business interests on the line.

Hacker Murphy is dedicated to being a different type of law firm. We only take cases we think we can win, and we give every single client the time, attention, respect, and ceaseless passion they deserve. Moreover, we don’t rush our clients’ cases to the easiest and earliest opportunity for settlement.

  • In personal injury cases, we focus on maximizing compensation.
  • In business cases, we focus on protecting our clients and making the most of every deal.
  • In taxation cases, we stand up against the IRS and help our clients save as much money as possible while also making wise decisions for the future.
  • And for our criminal defendant clients, our ultimate goal is always a total dismissal of the charges with a clean and clear record, whenever possible.

While no one can guarantee a particular outcome in any case, we think it’s so important that your lawyers give you their all. That is what we’re here for.

  • 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.
