New York City Summons

New York City Summons

When you have been issued a Criminal Court Summons (a pink summons, citation, or notice to appear) you have often been charged with a crime. These cases can result in criminal records. These criminal records can cause problems in your current job and future jobs/employment. Law students, medical students, and other licensed professionals need to know their rights, they should consult and experienced attorney before taking any plea. I always recommend that my clients look to their companies employee handbook regarding their responsibilities for reporting arrests and convictions to their employer. People on probation need to report all police contact to their probation officers, public officials, licensed professionals, people who work for the City, students, and people with immigration issues need legal support.

Criminal convictions can also create other collateral consequences including problems with immigration, deportation, or denial of your immigration application. Whether you are a citizen, permanent resident, visa holder, and especially if you are undocumented, a criminal defense lawyer can help you if you have been issued a summons. In many cases, you may not even need to appear personally. This means that you can avoid the long lines, the metal detector, and the long court lines. You can go to work, I will appear on your behalf. You will obtain top level representation, I have handled literally thousands of these cases.
