Criminal Defense

Exceptional legal guidance for those charged with criminal offenses in Western and Central New York State

From the outset of a criminal investigation or the filing of a criminal charge or indictment, it is essential that individuals and corporations have experienced criminal defense attorneys who can properly advise them of their rights and obligations. How you respond in the early stages of any investigation will often determine the ultimate outcome of a case.

Our attorneys have extensive trial experience as both government attorneys and private counsel—in fact, many of our attorneys are former government prosecutors. The trial attorneys at The Wolford Law Firm LLP use their experience to formulate the best defense strategy for you.
