Accomplished Oswego Attorney Helps Clients Fight Criminal Charges

Central New York law firm safeguards fundamental rights

No matter what type of criminal charge you face, you are entitled to certain legal protections. Unfortunately, you cannot take advantage of those protections without a strong attorney advocating on your behalf. At Rodak Law Office, P.C., in Oswego and Syracuse, I have spent more than two decades protecting the rights of my clients. Since 1993, my firm has helped defendants throughout Central New York obtain justice. Whether you have been arrested in connection with a serious felony or seek assistance with an alleged traffic violation, I have the knowledge and background to develop and execute a successful defense strategy.

Dedicated adviser handles felony, misdemeanor and traffic cases

I take great pride in the reputation my firm has established throughout the area for helping people accused of:

  • Felonies — Charges such as homicide, robbery or aggravated assault can lead to long prison sentences. In these cases, where the stakes are so high, it is crucial to retain an experienced criminal defense attorney who understands the law and local criminal courts.
  • Misdemeanors — I provide the same type of comprehensive legal support in misdemeanor cases as in felony matters. If you have been accused of petit larceny, assault or some other misdemeanor, I can help you pursue a fair outcome. Having practiced law for decades, I understand how to handle all types of New York charges, such as those alleging obstruction, criminal negligence, solicitation or possessing stolen property.
  • Traffic offenses — Drivers who violate the law can end up paying a fine, losing their license or even spending time in jail. My firm takes the necessary steps to determine what happened and minimize the penalty.

Serving clients in Onondaga, Oswego, Jefferson and Cayuga counties, I provide each person I represent with the highest levels of professionalism and service.

Skilled advocate represents motorists accused of drunk driving

Facing charges of driving while intoxicated can be very intimidating, but it’s important to know you do have options. Even if your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) exceeded the New York intoxication level of 0.08 percent, I can review the circumstances and determine whether proper procedures were followed. Often, law enforcement officers violate legal standards when stopping vehicles and conducting searches. Additionally, wrongly administered tests and tainted results can lead to unjust prosecutions. I work diligently to ensure that harmful mistakes do not occur.

Experienced lawyer defends clients accused of drug crimes

If you have been accused of a drug-related offense, you need skilled representation to advocate for fair treatment. My firm confronts prosecutors and challenges evidence that is flawed or was improperly obtained. Whether you have been accused of possession, sale or manufacture, I have a detailed knowledge of the relevant New York and federal drug laws. Whenever appropriate, I argue for resolutions that include alternatives to incarceration such as substance abuse treatment.

Seasoned counsel handles sexual offense allegations

Even if you’re not convicted of a sexual offense, the allegation alone can stain your reputation. That’s why it’s essential to be represented by a lawyer who understands the highly sensitive nature of such cases. Sexual abuse cases present issues and concerns that don’t exist in other types of prosecutions. By providing individualized attention to each matter, I develop a thorough understanding of the relevant facts and evidence. With more than 30 years of legal experience, I know how to unearth the truth in court even when witness accounts differ.
