Protecting our clients for more than 40 years The Law Offices of Frank J. Riccio LLC represents clients in the following matters:
Felonies If you have been charged with a felony, it is essential that you retain an experienced criminal defense attorney to zealously defend you in court. Felonies are the most serious crimes — such as murder, rape, armed robbery, credit card fraud, home invasion and burglary. Felony convictions also have the most serious consequences. A person convicted of a felony is sentenced to serve at least one year in a state or federal prison and may be committed for life. In addition, convicted felons are stripped of many of the rights guaranteed to American citizens, including the right to vote, the right to travel out of the country and the right to own a gun. Convicted felons also have to disclose their crimes on job applications and can be deported if they are not American citizens.
How your felony charge is defended can make the difference between life and death for you. The Law Offices of Frank J. Riccio LLC has more than 40 years of experience handling felony charges and is committed to attaining the best possible outcome for you.
Misdemeanors Misdemeanors are crimes such as disorderly conduct, simple assault, shoplifting and trespassing that are punishable by less than a year in prison. Although misdemeanors are less serious than felonies, having a misdemeanor conviction on your criminal record can limit your employment options and can result in a jail sentence. Ensure that you receive a fair trial by letting the attorneys of the Law Offices of Frank J. Riccio LLC represent you.
Motor vehicle offenses If you have been charged with operating a vehicle under the influence of drugs or alcohol, driving with a suspended license or vehicular manslaughter, the attorneys at the Law Offices of Frank J. Riccio LLC can help. We also assist clients in getting their drivers licenses restored or fighting traffic tickets.
Drug crimes Charges of trafficking, distributing or possessing illegal substances or drug paraphernalia can result in heavy fines and extended time in jail. You can rely on our knowledge of drug crimes and our history of successful results to help eliminate or minimize the charges against you.
Sexual offenses Rape and sexual assault cases are among the hardest for defendants to win. The attorneys at the Law Offices of Frank J. Riccio LLC have the experience and skills to successfully litigate these cases. Contact us today.
Sealing and expungement of records A criminal record can prevent you from pursuing higher education, securing your dream job or traveling abroad. The Law Offices of Frank J. Riccio LLC can help you eliminate past criminal charges from your record or get those records sealed so that you can move on with your life.
Federal prosecution requires an attorney with federal defense experience If you are accused of a crime that violates a statute passed by Congress, you will be tried in federal court. Crimes against federal agencies such as the Securities and Exchange Commission (e.g., securities fraud), the U.S. Treasury (e.g., counterfeiting), the Environmental Protection Agency (e.g., toxic waste dumping), the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (e.g., gun-running) and the Drug Enforcement Agency (e.g., drug smuggling) are federal crimes, as are crimes that cross state lines, such as moving a kidnap victim from one state to another. Crimes that use a federal agency, such as the U.S. Postal Service, to perpetrate an illegal act are likewise federal.
At the Law Offices of Frank J. Riccio LLC, our attorneys understand federal criminal law and all aspects of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure, including:
Federal Bail Reform Act
Motions to compel discovery
Federal sentencing guidelines
White collar crimes
