The Firm represents individuals in connection with misdemeanors and felonies, including homicide cases. The Firm primarily works on cases at the trial level, but will also work on appeals.
Criminal work is typically done on a fee-for-service basis, but the Firm’s principal, Emily Campbell, is a member of the Kings County 18B Panel for indigents, so some services are charged to the City of New York. Sometimes criminal matters are handled on a co-counsel basis as part of the Firm’s commitment to pro bono representation, particularly where the Firm’s managing member provides assistance on complex cases (including homicide cases) to indigents who have another 18B Panel member appointed to represent him or her.
Low-income individuals charged with crimes, who want an evaluation of the current legal strategy being employed in their defense, may want to participate in the Second Legal OpinionSM program, where an accused, who is self-represented or has court-appointed counsel, may consult with the Firm about their case.
