As an Assistant District Attorney in New York City I worked on thousands of criminal cases learning the ins and outs of the New York criminal justice system. As a criminal defense attorney I learned that justice isn’t always served, particularly if the accused doesn’t know his or her rights, doesn’t understand the process and doesn’t have the right advocate. I left the New York County District Attorney’s office and formed The Law Firm of Andrew M. Stengel to help ensure that those accused of crimes in New York City, Nassau, Westchester and the surrounding counties have access to experienced, knowledgeable and aggressive representation. As a private criminal defense attorney, I take pride in holding the prosecution to its burden of proof and ensuring that right of my clients are protected, no matter the degree of seriousness of the charge crimes. The criminal justice system is complex and can be intimidating and confusing. Those who are unaware of the process are at serious disadvantage. A private defense attorney will take the the time explain every step of the way and be available to answer questions and concerns.

Legal Answers
Q. My boyfriend got caught manufacturing meth and got an A2 felony. We hired my boss and my boss later had it out for me,
A: It is difficult to withdraw a plea unless there is a valid reason. Speak directly to a defense attorney about the issue.
Q. What should i do?
A: Possibly. You didn't write what the charge is. In any event, you should speak to a criminal defense lawyer.
Q. I have had a DWAI misdemeanor conviction, a DWI conviction, and am facing a second DWI conviction within 25 years.
A: DWAI is a traffic infraction and not a misdemeanor. More facts are needed to answer your question, like the time between the criminal DWI conviction and the new DWI-related charges.
