Experienced New York Attorney Defends Clients Charged with Internet Crimes

Skilled criminal defense lawyer advocates for defendants in the New York area facing cybercrime allegations

The internet offers users a wealth of information at their fingertips. That ease of access to online services, however, can come at a price if you’re accused of internet fraud or hacking, child pornography, identity theft or any other cybercrime. It is important to have sophisticated legal representation by your side if you suspect you are under investigation for or have been formally charged with an internet crime. The legal team at The Law Office of James A. Schiff draws on our in-depth knowledge of the technological aspects of internet crimes and stands ready to protect the rights and reputations of our clients in the New York area facing these serious allegations. We will provide a targeted defense dedicated to the best possible outcome under the circumstances, whether that’s an acquittal of the charges, a reduced sentence, or a favorable plea deal.

Dedicated New York advocates defend clients on a range of cybercrime charges

When you have been accused of an internet crime, depending on the charge, you may face prosecution at the state or federal level, so it’s essential you understand the seriousness of the allegation and the risk of severe penalties. The Law Office of James A. Schiff knows what’s at stake and will provide a staunch defense to charges such as:

  • Internet fraud
  • Identity theft
  • Child pornography
  • Cyberstalking and harassment
  • Extortion
  • Terroristic threats
  • Illegal trafficking
  • Copyright infringement
  • Credit card fraud
  • Phishing

Whether you are accused of downloading or streaming copyrighted material or face allegations of using the internet to traffic drugs, you deserve a defense that challenge the prosecution’s case vigorously and effectively.

Knowledgeable lawyer defends your rights and reputation

The internet offers the illusion of anonymity, which can pose risks to unsuspecting users. We know that being convicted of an internet crime can limit employment opportunities, destroy your relationships with family members, prevent you from voting and even result in jail or prison time — and we do everything possible to minimize the damage. We have defended clients in cases before state, federal and appellate courts throughout New York. We will mount a vigorous defense no matter what charges you face, seeking to cast doubt in the jury’s mind that the illegal online behavior was committed by you or that intent to commit a crime existed. We will work to clear your name or reduce your charges from the moment we take your case until its resolution.
