        Mr. Ranzenhofer and his attorneys were great! My case was handled quickly and I got a great result – $300,000. I fell at my doctor’s office, so I knew it was a hard case. Mr. Ranzenhofer developed a strategy that got me a great result. I highly recommend Mr. Ranzenhofer and his team of attorneys.

        It is your constitutional right to have a fair trial, but if the correct procedures are not followed that right can be compromised. An important area within criminal law is DNA identification, which is sometimes mishandled. In 2007, 1,907 DNA specimens were thrown out of court in New York State because of procedural errors by the police.  You want an experienced lawyer that can identify and highlight procedural errors. You also want an attorney with the ability to recognize mistakes that are made with identification and eyewitness procedures. Lastly, you want a criminal attorney that knows the level of proof required before the police can take certain actions, such as a search and seizure. Our Rochester criminal defense lawyers fit that list, and are ready and willing to defend you.
