NY Robbery Lawyers

It is never pleasant to face criminal charges that have been brought against you, but robbery is a particularly bad one. We understand that having the government charge you with robbery can be stressful and even frightening because of the implications of having a felony conviction in your record, as well as the prospect of jail time. Moreover, all of the uncertainty that you have surrounding the process of going to court and its eventual outcome makes the whole thing feel worse.
We here at Spodek Legal Group understand your concerns. We have a 24/7 phone staff and free initial consultations to ensure that you get all the time you need to make your decision. We have a staff of experienced and professional lawyers and we will take the time to make sure that you are connected to someone who understands the needs and goals for your specific case.
When it comes to robbery, there are three main types: third degree, second degree, and first degree. All of them share the same legal basis: taking money or other property from someone while using or threatening to use force. That is the lowest type of robbery, or the third degree charge. The second degree charge applies to the situation if there are multiple robbers participating in the event, if the item stolen was a car, and what degree of violence took place. The last type of robbery is the first degree version, which requires a significant amount of force and/or the use of a gun. Each of these carries its own range of prison sentences: for third degree it is two to seven years, for second degree it is 7 to 15 years, and for the first degree it is 10 to 25 years. As you can see, there is a very wide range of different outcomes depending on the exact circumstances of the event and how the judge and jury interpret them.
Robbery, like other criminal charges, has a variety of different possible defenses. We will work with you to craft an ideal defense that will get you the best possible outcome. That best outcome is having the charges dropped. Even beyond that, we can work to get your sentence lowered. We have a 99 percent success rate.
The two main types of defense in robbery cases are casting doubt on the evidence to show that you do not fit the parameters of the crime and arguing that your actions were not under your control due to threats and duress from someone else. The first type of defense relies on trying to undermine the evidence that the prosecution presents. Very rarely do these cases have a truly definitive piece of evidence. Instead, the prosecution has to use whatever they can find. If they don’t present enough evidence or the evidence was tampered with, then the defense can argue that there is reasonable doubt that you committed a crime. The same goes for the second type of defense. Here, rather than arguing that it could not have been you, the defense team tries to show that you were drugged, or in serious danger if you did not do what someone else told you to do.
We adapt the defense that we will use for you to the specifics of your case. Our team has served hundreds of people in the NYC area and we have extensive experience with the local requirements, the judges, and other lawyers.
Unlike other law firms, we have reasonable fees and costs and an active and dedicated support staff that can answer your questions at any hour of the day or night. This is because we know that you want to resolve these charges as soon as you can, so we are always available.
If you or someone you know is facing robbery charges and they live in Brooklyn or anywhere else close to DC, then have them get in touch with us. We have to get involved early on so that we can set the strategy and start reviewing and connecting evidence. The Spodek Law Group might have a lot of experience, but we also know to stay in tune with what our clients need.
The bottom line is that while in theory you could be your own lawyer and try to beat these charges by yourself, in practice this is nearly impossible. Let us take on all the work and the stress involved with this court battle. You can rest assured that we are doing our best work on your behalf. Remember, the initial consultation is free so we can get to know you and your case, so you have nothing to lose by giving us a try. By the end of the entire process, you will be glad that you did choose us.
