Representation from a Board Certified Expert in Criminal Law

Violent crimes are those which involve threats of violence or the use of violence. Even if a person was not harmed as a result, simply the attempted use or threat of violence can lead to an arrest.

    "“I am in court for YOU”"
    Helene and Steve were the most helpful, perseverant, and supportive professionals I have experienced to date. They made the impossible possible and performed nothing short of a miracle. I would highly recommend them for your legal needs, they are experienced and well renowned making for a great fit. I struggled with drug possession and distribution charges and they had my best interest in mind almost like my parents would if they were my lawyers. Regular check ups, positive reinforcement and encouragement had a huge help in my successful completion of all legal issues. If you want some one who’s always in your ring, go to the Raismans!

    "Ms. Raisman hates the abuse of power. I am forever grateful for they’re hard work and diligence."
    I was in the process of fighting a DUI in which my previous lawyer barely put in any effort towards the case. From the moment I met Ms. Raisman I knew there was a difference. She has a personal vendetta against the abuse of power and helped tip the scale back into balance. Easy to contact, prompt with responses, well known in her profession, knows the law, and most importantly took my case personally. In my career a clean record is a necessity and she took it as serious as I did which kept me satisfied even before the case was dropped!

    "You're not just a number."
    I had a case in regards to DUI and my previous lawyer did a terrible job. I could tell they were not concerned with actually fighting or dropping the case but were more interested in getting a plea deal which would look good enough and require minimal work. In my profession I need a clean record and Ms. Raisman took that personally. From the beginning I knew this would be a different experience and she didn’t settle for less. Everything was completely dismissed. The case was bogus to begin with but Unfortunately things are set up in a way today where the truth isn’t always the primary objective, and for that reason you still need someone very capable in your corner. Thanks again!

    "Absolutely Fantastic"
    Raisman & Raisman is absolutely a fantastic place on the stepping stones of the dark forest (court house). I worked with Steve Raisman during my 2 months of impending doom (court cases). We sat down in his conference room where he Immediately drew up a course of action. During each step he never over promised but delivered as swiftly & effectively as possible. Which resulted in the best out come and I am able to be home with my family because of his intelligent trades amongst the system which are forever honored. Thank you STEVE!

    "Very excellent"
    My lawyer reopened a case that was closed for me. Which was a felony. I didn't know that it was a felony at first, but it was affecting my immigration status and they fixed it.
