    Long Island Criminal Defense Attorneys

    Understand that you have certain constitutional rights that are guaranteed to you by the United States Constitution and the Constitution of the state of New York. You have an absolute right to remain silent. No one can force you or coerce you to plead guilty to anything. You have a right to take your case to trial, and to force the people to prove its case against you beyond a reasonable doubt. You have a right to cross examine and confront the prosecution’s witnesses and to provide your own defense. You have the absolute right to be represented by an attorney at each and every stage of your criminal proceeding.

    If you are contacted by the police to be questioned or if you are arrested, call us immediately before speaking to the authorities. It is unwise to speak to the police without an attorney present. Anything you say and any statement you sign can and will be used against you.

    If you are charged with a felony, it is particularly important that you retain counsel right away to avoid possible indictment. An indictment is a proceeding where a grand jury hears evidence to determine whether or not there is probable cause to charge you with a felony, which is a serious criminal charge. Once you are indicted, the law places restrictions on plea bargains, so it is essential that you retain counsel right away. We provide immediate and personal attention to your case to protect your rights in these instances.

    We are experienced at plea negotiations, motion practice, hearings, trials and grand jury proceedings. Our Long Island criminal lawyers are available 24/7 to handle your criminal cases, including weekend arraignments.

    This is the most helpful law office I've ever dealt with. Through the past few years they have handled traffic citations for each of my teen boys, who are otherwise good drivers but unfortunately experienced mishaps. In every case they were responsive and effective and have saved us significant money by working with the court to reduce or eliminate penalties and points. Highly recommended.
    Great help. Chris really helped me understand what needed to be done. Thank you guys!

    Just Stop It!! Stop searching the Internet for a good lawyer to handle your traffic tickets. M, P & B are the best, so look no further. No, I am not a friggin cheerleader, nor am I being compensated to write a good review. Actually, I did receive something from Mr. Bennett and his team of professionals: Great Results!! I'm just a 50 something years-old Army veteran, and a guy who busts his a$$ every day to make a modest living. I don't have the time or money for mediocre results. When it comes to lawyers, I tend to be a bit skeptical, cynical and judgemental, but M, P & B (Mr. Bennett and his team, in particular) made me a believer. Thanks again, guys and gals at McGuire, Palaez & Bennett 👍👍

    I’m very happy with the outcome of my case since all was reduced to parking tickets and a small fine. They were super helpful and the work from my end was minimal. Overall good people and kind to customers, attorney Bennet did a really good job in court.

    I hired Brett and his team to help restore my license which was suspended/revoked for years due to points/accidents. Fairly priced… after trying to take care of it on my own (paying fines and taking classes) I hired Brett, they did everything they could even after I moved from NY to FL, everyone who I spoke to was very helpful ESPECIALLY Daslin, she told me everything I needed to do and calmed me down when I thought I’d never get my license. Well it took some time but I am officially a LICENSED DRIVER! If you are having license problems don’t hesitate to call them, you won’t regret it. They even sent me my $100 money order back that went unused after my license was restored. 5 ⭐️’s

    We are very grateful that we got Mr. McGuire to represent us for our case! Mr. McGuire is extremely helpful and professional, he stayed on top of everything for us, and most importantly he helped us to achieve the result that we wanted. Mr. McGuire always open to talk and provided his professional opinions to guide us through the whole process. And his colleague Mr. Sorell was also helpful to support us at the final meeting. I can't say enough good things about Mr. McGuire and his firm, I really appreciated everything they have done for us, thank you very much!
