Criminal Law

Offering Clear Counsel And Aggressive Representation

A criminal conviction can haunt a person for years, impacting job opportunities, relationships, student loans and many other aspects of life. If your freedom and reputation are on the line, it is critical to get an experienced and determined advocate on your side.

I am Williamsville criminal defense attorney Timothy J. Hennessy, PLLC, and my law firm is here to provide the vigorous legal representation you need during this difficult and confusing time. I will help you explore all possible options for having the charge dismissed or reducing the penalties you face.

I handle all felonies and misdemeanors in the New York State Courts. Whether you have been accused of petty larceny, homicide or anything in between, I can defend your rights.

DWI And Traffic Violations

Driving while intoxicated (DWI) carries many serious consequences. Depending on a variety of factors, you may be facing jail time, steep fines, increased insurance premiums, the loss of your driver's license and other penalties.

As your DWI defense lawyer, I will sit down with you and explain the process, step-by-step. I will also review the details of your traffic stop and arrest to ensure that law enforcement did not violate any of your constitutional rights.

Drug Charges

New York has strict laws in place regarding marijuana, methamphetamine, heroin, cocaine and other illegal drugs. I defend individuals accused of possessing, distributing, selling or manufacturing these controlled substances. I also defend those accused of prescription drug crimes, such as stealing script pads from a doctor's office or borrowing Oxycodone pills from a friend.

Defending Your College Student's Future

As a younger attorney who attended law school straight out of college, I can relate to the pressures and concerns facing today's students. I also understand how vital it is to protect their futures. If your son or daughter was charged with a criminal offense, turn to me. I represent students at the University of Buffalo, Buffalo State, Canisius College, Daemen College and other universities and schools in the area.
