If you have been arrested or need to help a loved one who is facing criminal charges, the pressure to make smart decisions is intense. Whether charges stem from a DWI, drug possession, alleged assault or something else, you need to speak with a reputable defense lawyer right away.

I am Barbara Wilkanowski, a criminal defense lawyer with 20 years of experience as an assistant district attorney in Queens— and many years of experience helping my clients deal with criminal charges effectively. In addition to providing misdemeanor and felony defense services, I frequently advise and represent businesses facing construction, fire safety and other civil violations.

In my view, knowing the person as well as the charge and circumstances is vital for effective criminal defense. You can talk to me openly and honestly about your case and which potential outcomes worry you most. My role is to share practical, in-depth knowledge of the system and your options, so that you can make the best possible decisions for your future.

Then, I have the skills and resources to take action on your decisions, whether that means negotiating a plea, pursuing alternatives to prosecution or taking your case through trial. I have gone that distance hundreds of times in my career, with an excellent success rate.

Referrals from other attorneys generally come out of respect. When they come from past clients, they reflect gratitude and confidence. You can count on my total effort to reward the trust you place in me as your criminal defense lawyer.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

Credentials
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

Cost
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
