Forest Hills, New York Criminal Defense Attorney Dennis F. Dowd

Criminal Defense Attorney

A former senior prosecutor, now defending clients in the five boroughs and Long Island.  I have built my private practice around one single goal: protecting the rights of my clients as I fight on their behalf for a successful result.

My philosophy and approach to helping clients is about representing people and not simply handling “cases” by moving them through the system. I work closely with each client on an individual basis as I fight for them and pursue the best course of action for their individual situation.

Whether you have a criminal matter or need help with some type of family transition I can help.

Since 2002, practicing as a prosecutor and as a defense attorney, I provide a level of expertise that truly benefits my clients. Additionally, with a unique understanding of the local courts, we work for the best possible outcome for out clients.

Criminal Law

As a former criminal prosecutor I have a distinct advantage when representing clients that other defense lawyers can’t match. I know the system and how the prosecution team thinks and works because I was one of them for a long time. Today I use that knowledge and experience to help.

Traffic Tickets

Traffic violations are part of life. Unfortunately, they can become serious problems if not dealt with. Many traffic charges carry points that can lead to a suspension of your driver’s license. Receiving more than 11 points in an 18 month period will required the DMV to suspend your license.  Six points will likely gain you a warning letter from Albany accompanied with a “warning” penalty.

Some traffic tickets are more serious and can land you in the criminal court, so if ignored can have consequences that can dramatically affect your daily life.

Personal Injury

The Law Office of Dennis Dowd can help you with your car accident, slip and fall, work injuries, and medical and dental malpractice issues. This office works diligently with outside counsel with the goal of gaining compensation for those who were the victims of other people’s negligence.
