Meet Attorney Barbara Wilkanowski

If you have been arrested or need to help a loved one who is facing criminal charges, the pressure to make smart decisions is intense. Whether charges stem from a DWI, drug possession, alleged assault or something else, you need to speak with a reputable defense lawyer right away.

I am Barbara Wilkanowskia criminal defense lawyer with over 35 years of experience as an Assistant District Attorney in Queens — and many years of experience helping my clients deal with criminal charges effectively. In addition to providing misdemeanor and felony defense services, I frequently advise and represent businesses facing construction, fire safety and other civil violations.

Care And Respect, Every Step Of The Way

In my view, knowing the person as well as the charge and circumstances is vital for effective criminal defense. You can talk to me openly and honestly about your case and which potential outcomes worry you most. My role is to share practical, in-depth knowledge of the system and your options so that you can make the best possible decisions for your future.

Then, I have the skills and resources to take action on your decisions, whether that means negotiating a plea, pursuing alternatives to prosecution or taking your case through trial. I have gone that distance hundreds of times in my career, with an excellent success rate.

Many Prior Clients Send Friends And Family To Me For Help
