Criminal Practice

Being accused of a crime or having the government investigate you is terrifying. Not only can a conviction land you in prison, but the social stigma of having a criminal record can have lifelong consequences for you and your family that are devastating. Aside from having your liberty taken away from you, a criminal conviction may prevent you from being employed, from voting, and may even get you deported from the United States. The stakes couldn’t be higher.

Fortunately, the U.S. Constitution gives you an absolute right to not have to go through this ordeal alone. The choice you make about who will represent you is the single most important decision you will make regarding this process.

Having the right attorney represent you can be the difference between a charge being dismissed and you being thrown in jail. Whereas the right attorney can fight for you regardless of the circumstances, the wrong one can rip you off while giving you the bad or irresponsible advice that can lead you to prison.

If you hire us to represent you, here is what we bring to your corner. First, John Buza is a knowledgeable criminal defense attorney with a lot of trial and courtroom experience. He is a former prosecutor with the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office. That means there is almost certainty that he has handled a case very similar to yours from the government’s perspective. Moreover, he has done it in the biggest borough of the biggest city in the world. He therefore knows the law, the kind of evidence the government is looking for, and what they will need to prevail. What’s more, he knows and understands how the government thinks. He therefore has a unique ability to explain to you why the government is doing what it is doing and advise you accordingly. Second, Mr. Buza promises to only charge a reasonable rate for his services, to always promptly return your calls, to always give your case the personalized attention it deserves, and to advise you on how to proceed at all times.

If you, or a loved one, has been arrested or are the subject of a criminal investigation, do not hesitate to contact Mr. Buza today for a free consultation.

Civil Rights Practice

The United States of America is a great country not because of our wealth, our military strength, or because of our influence around the world. It is great because of our freedom. The U.S. Constitution codifies this freedom by containing several provisions in it that guarantee some of the rights that our Declaration of Independence stated were inalienable. These rights to “…life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness…” are enshrined not only in our cultural ethos, but in our laws as well.

Regardless of whom the person is, the government does not have the right to take away that person’s life, liberty, or property without due process of law. If the government or an official working for the government does take away any of those rights without due process of law, you have a legal right to be compensated. This means that if you or a loved one has been falsely arrested or has been the subject of police brutality or other misconduct, you may have a cause of action against both that officer and against the government. If you hire John Buza to represent you, he can fight for you in an effort to get you the just compensation you deserve for the loss of your rights.

If you, or a loved one, has been falsely arrested or been the subject of police brutality, excessive force, or other misconduct, do not hesitate to contact Mr. Buza today for a free consultation.
