Personal Attention. Real Solutions.

If you have been accused of rape, and charges have been pressed, you have the right to an attorney. You could choose to work with a public defender, but at The Law Offices of Joseph Lesniak, LLC, we offer personal attention and creative solutions to your legal problems. We know that accusations of rape or date rape may be exaggerated or even baseless, and we fight diligently to protect the rights of the accused.

Effective Strategies

We will carefully examine the circumstances surrounding your case, including all available evidence and the credibility of the victim and any witnesses. We use our extensive knowledge and experience to develop a defense strategy that will avoid conviction entirely or effectively mitigate damages to your record and reputation.
