DeRoberts Law Firm - The Strong Defense You Will Need

DeRoberts Law Firm of Syracuse provides effective criminal defense in state and federal courts throughout Central New York. We routinely represent clients in Syracuse, Utica, Rome and all of Onondaga County. Veteran trial lawyer Jeffrey DeRoberts personally handles DWI/DWAI cases and alcohol-related offenses, all misdemeanor and felony crimes, and serious traffic violations. Many larger law firms, in order to keep costs down, have clients meet with a senior attorney, then pass the case off to be prepared by a paralegal or junior attorney. In fact, in many instances, even your appearances handled by an associate attorney, maybe even one fresh out of law school with no trial experience.

You may never see that senior attorney again, unless something goes wrong - and by then the damage may be done! At our firm, Jeffrey DeRoberts personally handles your DWI case or criminal defense. Paralegals Kristine Griffin and Rita Bianchi do perform important research and support, but Mr. DeRoberts is your lawyer from start to finish. He pores over the police reports. He files motions to challenge the evidence against you. He negotiates with the prosecutors to reduce or dismiss the charges against you. And, in the event your case goes to trial, he is right there beside you.

Experienced, Aggressive and Cost-Effective

Jeffrey DeRoberts has practiced in DWI/DWAI defense and criminal defense in Syracuse, New York, and the surrounding areas for 16 years. Due to his hard work, determination and skill, he can match those bigger firms for ability and results, but they can't match us for individualized attention, accessibility and the cost of your defense.

The front end of your case - the first hours, days and weeks after your arrest - is where an experienced and proactive attorney can make the difference. DeRoberts Law Firm works to get charges dismissed or reduced, to get questionable or improperly obtained evidence excluded, and to preserve your driving privileges.

Mr. DeRoberts is knowledgeable about all facets of DWI law and familiar with the tendencies of local prosecutors and judges. This enables him to give you solid advice and realistic expectations about your options, and effective advocacy in proceedings.
