Criminal Law Attorneys

Nassau, Queens & New York Criminal Law Firm

Everyone makes mistakes. Sometimes people’s mistakes result in criminal prosecutions. At times, we may have been wrongly accused or the prosecution does not have enough evidence to convict. At other times, we may admit we have made a mistake and want to limit the damage to ourselves and our loved-ones.

Do not wait to contact a criminal law attorney. The earlier a client retains legal counsel, the easier the road to a successful defense will be. Delays in retention of a lawyer can often result in statements and admissions which could otherwise have been avoided.

Peknic, Peknic & Schaefer, LLC provide its clients with excellent legal counsel from experienced former prosecutors.


If you have been cited for Driving While Intoxicated or Driving Under the Influence, you should know that the law imposes serious consequences upon conviction. Penalties can include substantial fines, a jail sentence or mandatory performance of community service. It is likely that your driver’s license will be suspended and many insurance companies will drop your motor vehicle coverage if you are found guilty. Some convictions may result in the seizure of your vehicle.

While drunk driving is dangerous and can result in the serious injury and death of others, significant penalties and jail terms can usually be avoided if there has not been an accident. Many of these cases can be successfully defended or negotiated by the experienced attorneys at Peknic Peknic and Schaefer.
