Collaborative, Strategic Criminal Defense

When individuals throughout the Finger Lakes region of New York are in need of a Rochester criminal defense lawyer, they contact me, attorney John McKeown. My goal in criminal law is to provide my clients with staunch advocacy and a straightforward approach to defense. I run a solo attorney law firm, which allows me to work closely with each of my clients, preparing their cases on a one-on-one basis and providing them with the information they need to achieve their best possible outcome.

Even If You Have Only Been Questioned By Police, Call Me Immediately

I urge you to contact me as soon as possible if you have been questioned about, accused of, or arrested for misdemeanor or felony charges that involve:

  • Traffic violations or reckless driving
  • Alcohol-related offenses like DWI or DUI
  • Personal or professional driver's license suspension or revocation
  • Drug crimes, such as possession, cultivation or manufacturing of controlled substances (i.e., marijuana, cocaine, crack, heroin or prescription drugs)
  • Shoplifting, theft, larceny and similar charges
  • Violent crimes or sex crimes like assault or statutory rape

Vigorous, Honest Defense Based On Real-World Experience

Some attorneys will boast of their aggressive representation, without regard to how effective their methods actually are. As your criminal defense lawyer, I will stand up for your rights and do all I can to have your charges dismissed, but I will also not try to push you into a long, drawn out trial, when other methods might be more effective for you.

I have more than 25 years of experience in the practice of law, and it has given me a keen awareness of what actually works and what does not work in plea bargains, negotiations and hearings. Do not leave your life in the hands of an amateur attorney. Get the honest, straightforward defense you need.
