Assertive Lawyers Serving Tompkins County And Surrounding Areas


Some of our lawyers are former prosecutors. This experience gives us an added layer of understanding in criminal law. We know what the prosecution is looking for and we prepare our case accordingly. We will give you the information you need to prepare your child to make educated decisions about his or her case. The students we work with have been charged with:

  • DWI/DUI
  • Drug possession
  • Assault
  • Theft
  • Underage drinking or minor in possession
  • Fake ID possession and manufacturing

If convicted, your child could be suspended or facing expulsion from school. Cornell University has its own judicial administrator that will pursue consequences against your child. Our Central, N.Y attorneys are experienced in negotiating directly with these professionals as we work to preserve and protect your child’s rights and reputation.

We understand how stressful and frustrating this situation can be for you and your son or daughter. Since Williamson, Clune & Steven’s inception in 1978, we have valued the importance of a strong connection to our community and our clients. We work collaboratively with each other and with many experts in criminal law as we work to help you obtain the best results possible.
