Do I Need An Attorney?


Getting Arrested Impacts Your Life. So Does Hiring the Right Criminal Defense Attorney.

Being convicted of a crime can have a huge impact on your life. It can negatively affect your employment, driver’s license, and credit. Nothing is more important than hiring the right criminal defense attorney – one with the knowledge and experience necessary to make sure your arrest doesn’t change your life any more than it already has.

At Feldman, Kleidman, Coffey, Sappe & Regenbaum LLP, in Fishkill, NY, we have lawyers highly experienced in criminal defense work. The FKCS&R criminal defense team is made up of former prosecutors and criminal defense attorneys. We know exactly how the system works. Not only do we have the experience you need, but we have the resources and relationships required to get the best possible result.

Our local attorneys, who are familiar with the proceedings of the area courts, will meet with you to discuss the particulars of your case. We have successfully represented clients charged with misdemeanors, felonies, and traffic offenses such as DWI and Driving While Ability Impaired (DWAI). No case is considered too small. Our attorneys will personally handle every matter including routine speeding tickets. Our attorneys are with you every step of the way, and will work with you to decide your best defense. If your case needs to go to trial, we’re ready to fight on your behalf. If it’s best to agree to a plea bargain, you can count on our reputation as experienced negotiators to secure you the best possible resolution.

Felonies and Misdemeanors

An allegation that you committed a crime is serious. Whether you are facing a felony charge such as homicide, manslaughter, attempted murder or assault, or if you are facing a misdemeanor charge such as petit larceny or criminal mischief, you need a lawyer who has the courtroom experience to handle your case seriously and help you achieve the best possible result.

As former prosecutors and public defenders, our attorneys know the best strategies to use when you’re facing criminal charges. We use these strategies to make sure that the State is forced to prove every element of your case beyond a reasonable doubt. We protect your rights throughout every step of the process, including protecting you from having unlawful interrogations used against you, having evidence obtained or used without a warrant, as well as any number of procedural errors that could mean the difference between a win and a conviction. We will investigate every aspect of your defense, and we know when to push for a fight in court and when a negotiated plea is the best choice.

I had my daughter's case with Mr. Steve and he is excellent lawyer. I'm very satisfied with the way my case is being handled. He is very professional and he will fight for you in and out of court to get you the best settlement possible. When meeting with him he explains the trial procedures, who the witnesses are that will testify and why. He also has a great knowledge about medicine and works with your doctor to make sure the medical evidence offered during the trial will help win your case, and the damages you deserve.read more

I can’t say enough good things about Steve Cohen and how he handled my personal injury case. Although other firms declined to take my case, Steve agreed, after patiently reviewing all of the facts, and was forthright that I was entitled to compensation for my injury. He was professional, perseverant and caring. Steve is also a great communicator and kept me informed at every step along the way. He provided his insight and guidance when it mattered, which enabled my case to be settled for an amount that I never anticipated. If you’re looking for professionalism and class, look no further than Steve Cohen. Thank you.read more

Steve Cohen fought hard for my settlement so I didn't have to travel back to NY after my move to Wisconsin. The plan was for me to take several trips for depositions. He was able to get me a settlement which saved me time and money. All was done from across the country. I was so surprised how Steve listened to my concerns of how the case would cause me more loss of work and travel fees. I cannot thank Steve Cohen enough for understanding my needs.read more
