If you are facing a sex crime charge, the New York sex crimes attorneys at the Law Offices of Stephen Bilkis & Associates, you provide the aggressive legal defense you need. With decades of experience, we understand that facing a charge of rape, criminal sexual assault, or any other sex offense is frightening. Even if the charge is a misdemeanor, a sex crime conviction will have a permanent, negative impact on your life because you will have a criminal record and you will be required to register as a sex offender. Thus, it is imperative that individuals charged with sex crimes in New York are represented by an attorney who understands the criminal legal process and who can build an effective defense. The attorneys at the Law Offices of Stephen Bilkis & Associates have the experience, skill, and knowledge to develop a strategy to aggressively defend sex crimes charges.
We have the skill and resources to defend clients who have been charged with sex crimes such as rape and sexual misconduct. A criminal conviction can mean prison, fines, fees, and a permanent criminal record. However, those convicted of sex crimes face an additional consequence. They must also register in the sex offender registry for years. This makes it even more difficult to pursue a career, rent an apartment, and move forward even after fully serving the sentence for the crime. Because we understand what is at stake, we will work tirelessly to protect your legal rights and ensure you are treated fairly throughout the process.
We will investigate all aspects of the case. We will aggressively challenge the credibility of witnesses, analyze forensic evidence, and conduct independent evaluation of DNA evidence. We will not only review the actual evidence, we will also review the procedures used by the police to collect, secure, and process the evidence. Because we understand such procedures and the rules of evidence, we are able to identify irregularities and will challenge them. As a result, we are often able to get evidence thrown out, get charges reduced, and get charges dismissed before ever going to trial. We have the experience to represent clients charged with a range of sex crimes including rape, sexual misconduct, criminal sexual act, forcible touching, persistent sexual abuse, sexual abuse, and aggravated sexual abuse.
The attorneys as the Law Offices of Stephen Bilkis & Associates have the skill to represent clients accused of all types of sex crimes, including sexual misconduct, rape, criminal sexual act, forcible touching, persistent sexual abuse, sexual abuse, aggravated sexual abuse, course of sexual conduct against a child, predatory sexual assault, and offenses related to child pornography. Those accused of sex crimes are also often charged with other criminal offenses such as drug crimes, assault, kidnapping, stalking, and manslaughter. We understand these criminal offenses and can vigorously defend you against those charges as well.
In addition to the skills and experience that we bring to each case, we bring personal service to each case. We will design a defense that is specific to your case, and not a general, cookie cutter defense. We are committed to finding the right solution for you.
The attorneys at the Law Offices of Stephen Bilkis & Associates have a history of success. In many cases we are able to obtain a favorable solution without going to trial. However, if the better option is to go to trial, we are prepared to do so, and we have a winning record when litigating cases. The consequence of a sex crime conviction is life-changing. In addition to facing prison, fines, probation, and fees, you will be required to register as a sex offender for years, and you will have a criminal record. It will be tough to get a job, rent an apartment, or obtain professional licensing. Mr. Bilkis and the staff of the Law Offices of Stephen Bilkis & Associates will work hard to get the best possible outcome on your case.
