Criminal Attorney Jason Bassett Offers Free Consultations to Defendants Accused of Crime in Suffolk County

Suffolk County, NY: Being accused of a crime is a serious matter. No one knows this better than an individual who finds themselves in this position, feeling lost and insecure with nowhere to go. Unfortunately, many individuals are also left feeling as if they are fighting an uphill battle and the criminal justice system is stacked against them.

Jason Bassett understands this. As an experienced criminal defense attorney on Long Island with over 20 years defending clients in criminal proceedings, he believes that no one should face the criminal justice system alone. Consequently, he is now offering free consultations to those who have been charged with a crime in Suffolk County.

“Even a first offense can have some serious consequences for someone accused of a crime. We’ve seen people being denied housing, employment, losing their job. A criminal record of any kind can have some pretty drastic implications that most people can’t appreciate until it’s too late. Unfortunately, this record can tarnish someone for the rest of their lives.”

Mr. Bassett believes that anyone who is facing criminal charges has the right to a knowledgeable and experienced defense.

“A skilled criminal defense lawyer in Suffolk County will understand that a criminal charge is not tried in a vacuum. It can’t just be distilled down to one individual being accused of one crime. As a lawyer, I need to look at it in the context of the big picture -- what is happening in the community? What is the current public sentiment? Given my experience with the system and its other players, what will the focus of the prosecution be?”

Consequently, Mr. Bassett believes that an attorney-client relationship doesn’t just begin and end with the legal nuts and bolts. He feels that a great criminal lawyer in Suffolk County must approach clients with empathy and understanding, that there is a confluence of heart and strength when it comes to talented representation. The client will need both skills in order to be successful in terms of the defense and how it plays out in his or her life going forward.

As a former prosecutor, Mr. Bassett fully understands the other side of the law and what his clients will be facing in a criminal case. He takes care to provide his clients with the reality of that so they are prepared and their cases can be stronger. This is especially true for first-time offenders and those who have been charged as juvenile delinquents.

“For juveniles, any criminal conviction can follow them throughout life, even when charges are sealed. A conviction can impact their further education and employment opportunities well into adulthood. It’s an unfortunate reality in today’s system, but a kid who makes a mistake as a juvenile can be dogged by it for the rest of their lives. It’s important to have a lawyer who understands juvenile law and sentiments.”

In order to serve individuals who have found themselves accused of a crime, Mr. Bassett is happy to offer a no-cost, no-obligation consultation. This allows everyone to understand the scope of the charges as well as the implications and possible consequences.
