Protect Your Rights and Get the Results You Need

The district attorneys in each of these counties have different criteria and thresholds for willingness to consider a plea bargain. Generally, the further north you go, it is more challenging to obtain a plea bargain, because the counties closer to New York City have a higher volume of criminal and traffic cases to deal with.

Cases will always depend on the county and the district attorney in the county as well as the facts of the case. If a case involves a young person or someone who could lose his or her job, some district attorneys might plea bargain it a little differently than they would with someone else. Regardless of your position or location, you need to work with an attorney who understands the complexities of county standards and procedures.
