The Law Office of Michael Viscosi is dedicated to the zealous defense of individuals charged with any crime in New York State.
If you or a loved one are facing possible jail time, probation or deportation, you should immediately retain an experienced lawyer to protect your interests. If you or a loved one was involved in a serious accident or was injured by another party, please call us immediately to see what we can do for you.
DWI & DWAI
Few experiences in life are as frightening as facing criminal accusations. One step in the wrong direction can have harmful consequences. We have years of success in handling over a thousand DWI cases- including DWI jury trial wins in town, village, city, county and federal courts. Do not trust your case to an internet jingle or a website in Syracuse miles from where you were arrested. Hire an attorney that will be there with you every step of the way and one that will actually go to court with you- instead of punting you off on some associate or attorney that doesn’t even work for that firm. Call us today.
Aggravated Unlicensed Operation
Not only can we keep you from having a permanent criminal record or going to jail, we can also guide you through the difficult and confusing aspects of the DMV and assist you in clearing up your driving history so that you can be a fully licensed driver once again. Call the Law Office of Michael Viscosi ASAP!
It is our mission as a law office to defend individuals charged with all types of criminal matters in both state and federal courts in New York. Sometimes pleading guilty is simply not an option. A guilty plea can have a far reaching impact on you life, and the life of your family.
The uncertainty of what to do next when you’ve been accused of a crime can be overwhelming – use this time to take affirmative action to defend yourself against the government’s allegations. First and foremost, it is important to remember that your case is far from over if you have been arrested.
Traffic Ticket Defense
If you receive a traffic ticket in New York State, paying the fine by mail may seem like the easy way out but it is rarely the right decision to make. Fighting your ticket can be the only option if you have a bad driving history or if you are facing points which can lead to increased insurance costs or even the loss of your license entirely.
Personal Injury & Wrongful Death
The consequences of an automobile accident can be catastrophic, both physically and financially. It is important that you immediately seek experienced legal help if you or someone you know has been injured or killed in a car crash. We file lawsuits against individuals and corporations who have hurt you or your family members and we fight to force insurance companies to compensate you based on what you deserve. If you have been hurt in an accident like a motor vehicle collision or a slip and fall then you most likely have a lot of questions.
Personal Injury & Wrongful Death Cont.
Who is responsible for these medical bills? How do I initiate a claim against the person responsible for the accident? What do I need to prove in order to win my case in court? We can answer these questions and guide you through the entire process. We will leave no stone unturned in obtaining every dollar for the injury that you have suffered. You can be confident in us.
We will immediately take action by:
- Compiling and using all of your medical records to our advantage
