Felony Public Corruption Charges Reduced to Misdemeanor
Caught for filing false and fraudulent asbestos inspection certificates with the City of New York relating to a multi-family house he was renovating, a Brooklyn contractor was facing felony charges that threatened his real estate career. Knowing he needed the help of a veteran criminal defense attorney, he reached out to Protass Law PLLC. By carefully analyzing the evidence against his client, and then convincing prosecutors from the Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office that that evidence did not support the charges they had been filed, attorney Harlan Protass obtained a misdemeanor, no-jail deal for his client, preserving that client’s licenses and ability to work in New York real estate.
