Protecting clients from criminal accusations

Gerald S. Stanshine & Associates, L.L.C. represents clients in the following criminal matters:

  • Felonies. If you have been charged with a felony, it is essential that you retain an experienced criminal defense attorney to zealously defend you in court. Felonies are the most serious crimes — such as murder, rape, armed robbery, credit card fraud and burglary. Felony convictions also have the most serious consequences. A person convicted of a serious felony is more likely to receive a lengthy prison sentence. In addition, convicted felons are stripped of many of the rights guaranteed to American citizens, including the right to vote, the right to travel out of the country and the right to own a gun. Convicted felons may also have to disclose their crimes on job applications and can be deported if they are not American citizens.
  • Misdemeanors. Misdemeanors are crimes such as disorderly conduct, simple assault, shoplifting and trespassing, etc., and although misdemeanors are less serious than felonies, having a misdemeanor conviction on your criminal record can limit your employment options and can result in a jail sentence. Ensure that you receive a fair trial by retaining an experienced, skilled attorney.
  • Motor vehicle offenses. If you have been charged with operating a vehicle under the influence of drugs or alcohol, driving with a suspended license, or vehicular manslaughter, we can help.
  • Drug crimes. Charges of trafficking, distributing or possession of illegal substances or drug paraphernalia can result in heavy fines and extended time in jail. You can rely on our knowledge of drug crimes and our history of successful results to help eliminate or minimize the charges against you.
  • Sexual offenses. Rape and sexual assault cases are often among the hardest for defendants to win. Mr. Stanshine has the experience and skills to successfully litigate these cases.
  • Internet Crimes / Child Pornography.  Often, jail time and the ruining of a good reputation can be the result if you fail to obtain the best legal representation.
  • Sealing and expungement of records. A criminal record can prevent you from pursuing higher education, securing your dream job, or traveling abroad. We can help you eliminate past criminal charges from your record, or get those records sealed so that you can move on with your life.
