Criminal Law

Nieroda & Nieroda has been successfully representing clients charged with anything from a violation to Federal felony offenses.

More commonly, we represent clients faced with driving while intoxicated (DWI) and/or driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Such a charge can affect your ability to maintain your driver’s license and in some cases even your vehicle. This is a serious offense and needs immediate legal intervention.

A violation is just that, a violation of the law and not a crime, per se. It usually involves paying a fine and perhaps some community service. Most commonly a violation involves traffic offenses, such as driving with a suspended license or no insurance.

A misdemeanor is a crime and punishable with up to a year in prison, a fine or both.

A felony, depending on the level, is a serious offense that requires the absolute best in legal defense. The liberty of the person charged with the felony may be at stake.

State offenses are different than Federal offenses. A Federal offense could be computer fraud, mail fraud, workers’ compensation offenses or tax fraud, to name a few. Mr. Nieroda successfully defended a complicated internet fraud case in Chicago. He represented one of nineteen defendants with a successful outcome.

Daniel W. Nieroda, Sr. is a former Assistant District Attorney and a retired NYC Police Lieutenant. He has more than 36 years experience in law enforcement and criminal defense work. He is also an active member of AMVETS and a former U.S. Marine.
