In our experience, prescription drug fraud or theft offenses often give rise to other legal problems within a household. If significant quantities of controlled substances are kept at home, or if a driver is stopped with unlawful medications in a car with a child passenger, there's a good chance that the child protection authorities will become involved while the prosecution considers criminal charges against you. The attorneys of Jeannie D. Michalski represent clients with family law problems as well as criminal defense issues, so we can address the whole range of problems that your situation might present.

We also advise people who work in licensed professions: doctors, nurses, teachers, commercial drivers, therapists and others whose occupational standing might be threatened by a drug conviction. We'll go to work on your criminal case with your professional interests in mind, and we can also represent you in any disciplinary investigation or hearing that a New York State licensing board might commence against you.

Our goal in any criminal defense engagement is to protect our clients from the risk of punishment. At the same time, we know that your criminal case can have a wider impact on your life beyond the risk of conviction. We therefore work closely with each client to protect the full range of any personal interests that might be affected.

With offices in Rochester and Avon, we're conveniently located for clients in Monroe and Livingston counties. Our familiarity with the different charging practices, treatment resources, diversion options and court procedures throughout Upstate New York can give you a significant advantage toward a positive outcome in a prescription drug abuse, theft, forgery or distribution case.
