Being charged with a crime and facing potential jail time is an incredibly stressful and scary experience. Many people feel overwhelmed when trying to navigate the complex criminal justice system on their own. Fortunately, there are experienced Queens criminal defense attorneys who understand how to protect your rights and build the strongest possible defense for your case.
If you or a loved one has been arrested and charged with a crime in Queens, the first step is to understand exactly what you are being charged with. The district attorney’s office will provide information on the specific charges, the relevant criminal statutes, and the potential penalties if convicted. This includes the minimum and maximum jail or prison sentences that could be imposed.
Many laws provide a wide range of sentences – for example 5 to 25 years in prison. The judge has significant discretion in determining what sentence to impose based on the facts and circumstances of each case. As such, it is critical to have an experienced Queens criminal lawyer assess your charges and advise you on the sentencing exposure and any options available to reduce the penalties.
There are several strategies criminal defense attorneys use to fight unfair or harsh sentences in Queens courts:
In addition to these strategies, criminal defense lawyers in Queens use comprehensive pre-sentencing reports and expert testimony to advocate for fair punishment. The reports provide background on the defendant and emphasize factors like:
Presenting this type of mitigating evidence can convince the judge to impose less than the maximum penalty allowed under the law. And in cases where an unfairly long sentence is still imposed, appeals lawyers can fight to get the punishment reduced.
If you have already been convicted and sentenced, there are still options to challenge an unfair or excessive criminal sentence in Queens County. Post-conviction relief strategies criminal defense lawyers pursue include:
An experienced post-conviction relief attorney can evaluate which strategies give you the best chance at overturning an unlawful conviction or getting a harsh Queens sentence reduced. Time is of the essence, so contact a lawyer immediately after sentencing to discuss your options.
The single most important step in fighting criminal charges and avoiding unfair sentences in Queens is retaining an aggressive and experienced criminal defense attorney. Look for lawyers with a proven track record of getting charges dismissed pre-trial. Also confirm they have substantial experience arguing for fair sentences and appealing excessive punishments.

You can challenge any criminal sentence that seems unfair, excessive, or illegal compared to sentences typically imposed for similar offenses. Common issues include failing to properly apply sentencing guidelines, inadequate consideration of mitigating factors, constitutional rights violations, and ineffective assistance of counsel.
Even after losing a direct appeal, there may still be grounds to challenge the conviction or sentence through habeas corpus petitions, post-conviction motions, clemency requests, and other strategies. An experienced post-conviction relief attorney can advise if further options are available.
Time limitations apply for most post-conviction challenges, so you must act quickly. In New York, you typically have just 30 days after sentencing to file your notice of appeal. Other post-conviction motions have filing deadlines as short as one year. Meet with an attorney right away to avoid losing your right to fight an unlawful or excessive sentence.
