In most cases, our NY law firm can get your personal court appearance waived so that you will not even have to attend the court session. Our goal is to get your disorderly conduct charge dismissed so that you do not have a permanent record of conviction that can impact your life. Disorderly conduct also carries 15 days in jail. We seek to avoid that through dismissal as well.

Disorderly Conduct is very broad and a frequently charged violation in New York State and New York City. Police charge people with disorderly conduct for all sorts of minor transgressions, such as talking too loud, playing music too loud, roughhousing, double parking, not “moving along” when the police say to, riding a bike the wrong way down a street, engaging in a loud verbal argument, and a whole host of other behavior and activity.

Our goal in defending you against the disorderly conduct charge is to get it totally dismissed. We execute that goal through several legal tactics, such as discovery, disclosure, motion practice, motion to dismiss, pre-trial hearing, and negotiations. The facts of each case will determine how we devise a defense strategy. We strive to get your disorderly conduct charge dismissed because most people are worried about having the charge become a permanent public record. This is a legitimate concern. If you have been charged with disorderly conduct, we know that you are likely concerned about the charges and probably have more questions and concerns. If this is the case, please pick up the phone right now and give us a call. We talk to people like you every day. We’d love to chat with you and answer any remaining questions you may have.
