Ever since former Mayor Rudolph Giuliani declared war on petty offenses, New York City Police Officers have had the green light to make tens of thousands of arrest each year for minor crimes (misdemeanors) and violations (non criminal offenses). Caught in the web of these arrests are many good people who do not deserve and cannot afford a criminal record or other damage to their reputation.
Peter J. Schaffer, a New York City criminal lawyer with 25 years experience, fights for those individuals and businesses charged with misdemeanors, violations and traffic offenses. He understands that a criminal conviction can mean loss of employment, loss of licenses, embarrassment and irreparable harm to one's good name. Therefore, he has dedicated his practice to zealously defending those charged with minor offenses with the same vigor he uses to defend others charged with serious state and federal felonies.
