In addition to that, the NY AG is authorized to bring civil lawsuits against those who allegedly committed crimes against the residents of the state. This involves conducting investigations regarding a variety of allegations:

Conviction for one of these crimes can not only put your job or business in jeopardy, but also result in a sentence of years in prison and hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines. Our New York Attorney General defense attorneys provide the following guidelines for those investigated by this particular government body:

1. If you have received an interview request letter from the NY attorney general, don’t panic and avoid engaging in conversation with whoever delivers you the letter.

2. If you have been arrested in connection with a related offense or are approached by the NY AG agents, remember that you are not obliged to talk to them without a lawyer or before speaking with one.

3. Contact our NYC criminal defense attorneys to request a consultation for your case. J. Potashnik and his colleagues will do their best while representing you during the investigation, and if necessary, in court hearings.
