THINGS TO CONSIDER:

The New York Attorney Search Website warns that if you can not find the Lawyer that you are searching for, you should try to search again using a different spelling of the name.  The Lawyer search system seems to be a very exact search engine.  People may also use nicknames.  However, the database used on the New York Attorney Search site corresponds to Court records which may have more formal names and/or variants.  Such being the case, make sure you are not searching for a nickname and that you have the exact spelling of the name of the Lawyer you are searching for.  To search Attorneys, make sure that you have all the information you know about the attorney ready to input into the attorney search fields.  Google, Yahoo, & Bing are also very helpful if you are looking to get information which may assist you in obtaining proper spellings and information regarding a particular attorney.

If you still have problems, you should contact the New York State Office of Court Administration’s Attorney Registration Unit.  They can be reached at 212-428-2800 or by email at attyreg@courts.state.ny.us

EXAMPLES AND USES OF NEW YORK STATE ATTORNEY DIRECTORY:

Example #1: My wife and I are getting a divorce.  Someone referred me to a divorce lawyer in NY.  I was told he was one of the best lawyers in NY.  I personally have no experience with divorce lawyers in NY.  I have never worked with a divorce law firm.  It is important to me that I work with a Divorce Lawyer in NYC.  Can I use the Attorney Lookup New York Site/New York State Attorney Directory to find out more information to assist me in my Attorney Search?

You can use the New York State Attorney Directory to find NY Attorney registration information.  However, it will not tell you whether the lawyer is the best divorce attorney NY has to offer.

Example #2:  I told my friend I need the best criminal attorney he knows.  He knows many criminal defense attorneys.  He works at a criminal defense law firm.  There are so many criminal lawyers in New York City.  Many have approached me in the Courthouse.

It will not tell you whether the person is the best criminal attorney NY has to offer.  In fact, it will not even tell you if the lawyer is a DUI attorney, a divorce attorney or even a personal injury attorney.  It will tell you nothing about practice areas.  So if you want to find a New York City Criminal Defense Lawyer, you will have to find out if that person practices in that area.  Then you can check the New York State Attorney Directory to ensure that the Lawyer is actually admitted to practice in the State of New York, confirm his or her contact information and confirm that he or she is properly registered with the State to practice Law.

PLEASE NOTE: This site is not in any way affiliated with the Courts of any State.  This information is provided to assist people searching for an Attorney or information about someone who they have had dealings with who may be holding his or her self out as a Lawyer.  This site is not an endorsement of any person or entity nor is it intended to provide legal advice.

WHAT IS AN ARRAIGNMENT???


An arraignment is when the Court officially takes jurisdiction over a case. Everyone comes together in front of a judge and they formally charge the person with the crime alleged. A plea is entered at that time (GUILTY/NOT GUILTY). If a NOT GUILTY PLEA is entered, the Court must then decide whether the person charged should stay in jail or be released. The Court sets a BAIL. The Court usually tries to assess flight risk when considering bail. This means, the Court, which does not know your loved one, will have to figure out whether he or she will return to Court. They use lots of factors, including the nature of the charges, the person’s job history and educational background, and whether or not the person has significant ties to the community. They also take note of who has bothered to come to court on behalf of the person during the arraignment. IT IS THE LAWYER WHO WILL ARGUE THE BAIL APPLICATION. There may be no BAIL. In that case, the person is released on his or her own recognizance (ROR). That means the person can leave and will come back at a later date. If a bail is set, the person will be held until bail is posted.THE REST OF THE CASE WILL BE DEALT WITH AT LATER DATES. THERE WILL NOT BE A TRIAL ON THE DAY OF ARRAIGNMENT.

 

In New York City Criminal Courts, Arraignments usually happen from 9am to 1am – 7 days a week (except Staten Island/Richmond County).

 

What is a DP?

DP stands for “Decline Prosecution” or when the District Attorney (DA) declines to prosecute a case.  This means that someone who has been arrested will not have any further action taken against him or her.  While the DA can file charges at a later date, often, this does not occur.  Sometimes, someone will say they were DP’ed.  When someone is released after arrest but before the arraignment (released before seeing a Judge) because the DA decides to decline prosecute a case, it is said that they were DPed.

In some situations, a person who was DP’d may want to consider contacting a lawyer regarding a possible civil rights suit and/or false imprisonment, false arrest action.  This is especially the case where a person who was arrested suffers damages.  Damages can be due to police brutality but may arise from someone losing days of work, having expenses as a result of an arrest, or from property damage that occurs as a result to or incident to an arrest.

If you are looking to talk to a lawyer regarding a civil rights case against the City of New York, you should do so RIGHT AWAY.  There are may rules that can bar your case if you don’t take action within a certain amount of time.  This applies to suits against the City in general, including false arrest, malicious prosecution, excessive force, civil rights, police brutality, false imprisonment, and similar cases.  While our firm handles these cases, this information, as with the rest of the information on our site, is provided for informational purposes and is not intended to create an attorney/client – lawyer/client relationship.  You should discuss these issues with your lawyer.
