Our Criminal Defense practice is one of the most active in Upstate New York and led by founding partner and chair Stephen Coffey. A former Assistant District Attorney for Albany County and Chief Felony Prosecutor, Mr. Coffey has over 35 years’ experience in representing persons charged with serious crimes in both State and Federal courts. He has been consistently recognized by his peers for his amazing acquittals and verdicts, thus earning the highly-coveted, annual distinction as being named New York Super Lawyer.
Our Criminal Defense practice represents individuals for all levels of offense from misdemeanors to felonies to white collar crime.
Our representation begins at the time of law enforcement investigation or arrest and our attorneys are available 24 hours a day to respond to questions or assist clients at the time of arrest. We appear for our clients at any time, day or night.
We are experienced advocates, negotiators and litigators at all levels of the criminal justice process.
Mr. Coffey demands that our attorneys are as skilled and passionate as he is about what we do. Our successful track record, which includes dozens of dismissals and acquittals, speaks for itself. We do not take holidays. Our reputation for integrity and excellence, as well as our ability to work with people, including United States Attorneys, District Attorneys and juries will help to ensure that you receive the best representation available.
We provide assistance with the defense and resolution of criminal matters involving investigations and prosecutions in town, village, and city courts and we are experienced in major and minor crimes. Mr. Coffey has handled matters in every jurisdiction in the region, and we have established excellent working relationships at all levels of the criminal justice system.
The Criminal Defense practice is active in both our Albany, NY and Plattsburgh, NY offices representing clients across New York State. We also provide criminal defense representation on a pro bono basis.
