Allegany County Criminal Defense Lawyer

Being charged with a crime doesn't mean you are a bad person. Any person can be at the wrong place at the wrong time and face criminal charges. Whether you are charged with a minor or serious offense, it is important you have aggressive legal representation from a defense lawyer.

I am attorney John Cappellini and I represent individuals facing criminal charges in Cuba, New York, and the surrounding areas. I understand the negative impact of a criminal conviction and will work hard to help prevent a criminal offense from burdening your future.

Most people know they have the right to legal counsel if they are arrested or charged with a crime, but do not think about how quickly they need to contact one. It is critical to remember that the sooner you have someone representing your interests, the better.
