If you or a loved one have been charged with a crime, we know that it can be a stressful time and that you or your loved one are likely to have many questions. First, we believe that it is important for anyone accused of a crime to have a defense attorney who has both the relationships to be able to effectively negotiate the case AND the skill to fight a case all the way through trial, if necessary. We can do both of these things for our clients. At O’Brien & Wood, PLLC we are here to help you through this stressful time. We can assist you in answering these difficult questions and making sure that you have every option available to you to attain the best possible result.
We have extensive experience in defending all criminal matters, from the relatively minor traffic infractions to the most serious felonies.
Kevin O’Brien’s previous experience as a prosecutor has provided him with the knowledge to understand all of the ways that the prosecuting authority, generally, the local District Attorney’s Office, may attempt to proceed with your case.
At O’Brien & Wood, PLLC we frequently represent clients who are charged with the following crimes, however, we would be happy to talk to you about any charges or potential charges that you may be facing:
- Drug Charges
- Vehicular Assault/Manslaughter
- Domestic Violence
- Sexual Assault
- Hate Crimes
Our strategy will look at every possible way of defending the case and will focus on understanding and achieving the goals of our client. We bring every option to our clients as we have practiced extensively throughout the Capital Region in nearly every court in Albany, Saratoga, Rensselaer, and Schenectady County. We also have significant experience with the courts and district attorney’s offices in the North Country, the Catskills and Hudson Valley.
Our relationships in these areas allow us to frequently negotiate favorable results for our clients. However, if we are unable to get to a successful disposition through negotiations, we have the skill, creativity and tenacity to fight your case using motions, hearings and trial whenever it is necessary for our clients.
