How Bernacki Law Will Fight Your Criminal Charges
Being arrested, no matter the charges, is a frightening and stressful occurrence. At Bernacki Law, our clients often ask us, “How will these charges affect my future?” or “Will I go to jail?” Unfortunately, we cannot offer a definitive answer to these poignant questions, but what we can do is to showcase our prolific case history full of successful criminal defense cases. As such, we have the skills, experience, and the judgment required to build a strong case designed to keep you from receiving an unnerving guilty verdict and an extensive prison sentence.
Immediately after we hear from you, Bernacki Law will get behind your case, ensuring a passionate commitment to lay the groundwork. For example, we’ll dive into police reports, obtain evidence as well as forensic testimony, and identify all the weaknesses in the prosecution’s narrative. From being your personal consultant and voice when under police questioning to keeping you informed during the entire criminal law process, our goal is to achieve a not guilty verdict or dropped charges. Or, if the evidence is truly stacked against you, we’ll use our decades of experience to fight for reduced or alternative sentencing.
Criminal Law Defense
The specific circumstances surrounding your charge, such as the possible punishments, are all dependent on the nature of the alleged crime. For the full list of crimes, including everything from minor violations to misdemeanors and felonies, you can refer to the New York Penal Law Code. Following are some common types of crimes in New York that we at Bernacki Law encounter:
- Assault and Battery
- Domestic Violence
- Drug Crimes

- Traffic Crimes and DWI
If you are accused of a crime in New York, we understand what is at stake and we’re prepared to work tirelessly in defense of your case. However, it is important to note that time is always a crucial factor in these cases, and immediately after you’re arrested or once you find out you’re under investigation, you need to contact a criminal defense attorney. Also, remember your constitutional rights, especially that you are innocent until proven guilty and that you have the right to remain silent until your attorney is present.
