Top Criminal Defense Attorney Working for You

Attorney Rahul Manchanda has spent 18 years defending a wide array of clients in state and federal criminal courts. He is ready to mount an aggressive and zealous defense no matter your circumstances. When the stakes are high, he rises to the occasion. Many cases handled by the team at Manchanda Law involve immigrants, which means the threat of deportation hangs over their heads.  

Our team aggressively fights to make sure deportations related to criminal charges don’t happen.  We rely on the “scorched earth” policy of never, ever making a plea deal with a prosecutor unless we completely and totally must do so. We know that for our clients, even a minor violation or an adjournment in contemplation of dismissal could result in a complete and total deportation from the United States. This outcome could ruin the lives of not only our client, but our client’s family members. We have a history of aggressively protecting the rights of our clients, and we’ll fight just as aggressively for you.

Among clients we’ve helped in the past are alleged heads of New York’s Albanian mafia, alleged members of Mexican drug cartels and members of both the Cali and Medellin cartels. If Manchanda Law was successful in helping these clients, imagine what we can do for you. We have success defending immigrants facing criminal charges, so imagine how good the results will be when we defend a U.S. citizen whose rights have been trampled on by the criminal justice system.

Our Knowledge of Both Criminal and Immigration Law Works to Your Benefit

Our team understands the areas where criminal law and immigration law intersect, and we realize the risks our clients face. Any violation or even an adjournment in contemplation of dismissal can result in an immediate and permanent deportation. Because of this, we take a proven and aggressive approach to avoid these sorts of disruptive outcomes.

Our experience extends to representation in matters involving other countries. Whether you are a U.S. national who is in need of representation in a case abroad or are a citizen of another country who has become the subject of a criminal investigation in the U.S., we are here to help. We have represented and advised both foreign and domestic clients in a wide range of disputes and understand well the complexities of these cases.

Mr. Manchanda understands the courts and the evidence they will bring. As a former biology and chemistry student and scientist, he has deep knowledge of the forensic techniques and evidence that are employed in criminal cases. This allows him to mount an effective defense that will expose the flaws in any prosecutor’s case.

Get the Best Possible Outcome When We Defend You against Criminal Charges

Rahul Manchanda and his team are experts in legal and equitable tactics. This ensures that our clients get the best deals possible — if not a total dismissal of charges. 

In addition to defense of clients throughout New York City’s five boroughs, we represent clients in other parts of the state of New York. This means we have strong knowledge of the police, prosecutors, judges and court systems you will be facing. Attorney Manchanda knows their patterns, judges’ preferences and the right way to litigate every case. He will put this knowledge to work for you.
