Long Island Criminal Defense Attorney Mike Elbert Esq.



In most cases, the criminal process begins with the police making an arrest and bringing the accused person before a Judge for arraignment at one of the Nassau County criminal courts. During the arraignment, the person is informed of the criminal charges being brought and the Judge will decide whether to set bail or release the person for the pendency of the case. It is important to have an experienced Nassau County Criminal Lawyer at this stage because they can make arguments for release or low bail and in some situations move for dismissal of the charges.

After the accusatory process is completed, a person with a Long Island criminal charge can either fight the case or attempt to negotiate a plea bargain. An experienced Nassau County Criminal Attorney should be able to provide you with options and articulate a strategy to achieve a result that best suits your particular circumstances.


We approach criminal cases in Nassau County by investigating and assessing the circumstances of the alleged crime and our client’s personal circumstances. Our objective is to provide options and devise and explain a strategy to obtain the best result possible for each individual client. We find it is particularly important to be available and maintain an open line of communication so that we can listen to the client and provide a solution that allows him or her to resume their lives with as little burden as possible.

Although prior case results do not guarantee similar outcomes, we are happy to discuss our past success, the strategies we employed and allow you to decide if our Long Island Criminal Lawyers are sufficiently skilled and experienced to handle your case in the Nassau County criminal courts.
