Murder or homicide is the unlawful killing of another human being. It is one of the most serious crimes a person can commit, and as such, its consequences are severe. The Albany homicide lawyers at Tully Rinckey PLLC are experienced in handling homicide and murder charges.
In New York, there are different forms of homicide. For a person to be charged with murder in the first degree, there must be an element of intent to cause the death. Manslaughter is a lesser crime, where a person has the intent to cause bodily harm to another and causes the death of their victim. There are different degrees of both of these crimes. If a person commits one of these crimes, the charge that is brought against them can depend on intent and/or extenuating circumstances.
A conviction for homicide can result in the most severe consequences, which may include:
Prison time, up to a life sentence without parole
Domestic violence, also known as domestic abuse is a broad category that includes different types of crimes committed against people who live together, or are related by marriage, or house a child together, or who are or were involved in an intimate relationship. The Albany violent crimes attorneys at Tully Rinckey PLLC are experienced in handling domestic violence charges.
Domestic violence can include spousal abuse, child abuse, or intimate partner violence. Domestic violence can encompass many different acts, including, physical abuse, threats, verbal abuse, emotional abuse, sexual abuse, financial abuse, public humiliation, kidnapping, and stalking. Courts have become increasingly aware of patterns and trends in these types of behavior, and increasingly are treating the offenses with more weight.
Domestic violence cases can be extremely complicated, because of the sometimes low burden of evidence required to file charges. In addition, charges are sometimes found to be completely frivolous or filed out of spite.
A conviction for domestic violence can result in severe consequences, which may include:
Probation or parole
Loss of child custody or visitation rights
Mandatory community service
Criminal Possession of a Weapon
The illegal possession of a deadly weapon, such as a firearm or knife is a crime by itself, but often is committed in combination with other violent offenses. Illegal weapons charges then cause the consequences of these crimes to be more severe. The Albany violent crimes attorneys at Tully Rinckey PLLC are experienced in handling criminal weapon possession charges.
The consequences of illegal weapons possession depend on a number of factors, including prior arrests or convictions, parole or probation status, among others. Consequences for a conviction may include:
Probation or parole
Loss of right to bear arms
Hate crimes are crimes committed against individuals because of the victim’s gender, race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, age, or similar group affiliation/status. The Albany violent crimes attorneys at Tully Rinckey PLLC are experienced in handling hate crime charges.
These crimes of discrimination are also known as bias crimes. Hate crimes can take many forms of violence, and may include physical and/or verbal abuse, harassment, assault and battery, vandalism, homicide, and more.
Hate crime laws have developed relatively recently. The issues they highlight are polarizing, and receive much public attention. This can lead to extra pressure for these crimes to be punished more severely. Hate crimes are usually prosecuted together with another underlying crime, and thus do add to the potential for harsher consequence. Consequences for a conviction may include:
Violent crimes involve injury to or the threat of injuring other people. The Albany violent crimes lawyers at Tully Rinckey PLLC are experienced in handling violent crime charges.

I was most fortunate to be able to hire Derrick Hogan on two separate occasions to fight tickets for us. I cannot even begin to tell you what kind of a professional we were dealing with. His character matched his ability as an attorney. Having to hire an attorney for an out of town situation was a very difficult decision to make. I feel so blessed with dealing with this esquire. Mr. Hogan handled us like a symphony. He was extremely kind, brilliant, confident, sincere, and worked very hard on our behalf. He takes great pride in his work and it certainly shows. I have never in my entire life worked with anyone this professional or more highly qualified. If you decide to hire Derrick Hogan, you will have made the decision to hire the best attorney possible. Sometimes driving a Lexus is a smoother ride than driving a Dodge. You would be getting a Lexus with this lawyer. I give him five stars; he is a superstar himself. What a pleasure for me to recommend Derrick Hogan. Derrick is the absolute BEST of the BEST.
Tully Rinckey PLLC's professionalism put me right at ease. They had all charges against me dropped! I truly felt they earned my whole retainer and they even sent me back what was not used.

For that, I cannot ever thank them enough!
Derrick Hogan at Tully Rinckey handled my case and I feel fortunate that he was my lawyer. I called to talk with someone about my case and by chance was connected with Mr. Hogan. He listened, asked good questions, and gave me all the information I could have asked for. He explained every step, what would or could happen in very clear and easy to understand terms. I was sent a retainer and explained the case would be covered by a flat fee, and that anything that came up in the future relating to the case would be fully covered by that fee. Although my case was probably one of the simpler, easier cases they handle, Mr. Hogan always made me feel that my case was important to him. He always urged me to call him if I had questions or wanted him to go over anything again. He even called me to follow up before I had to call him â€“ something I find is rare with almost any professionals these days. He treated me with utmost courtesy and respect, was knowledgeable, and reassuring.
I contacted Tully Rinckey PLLC for representation and upon doing so, obtained Derrick Hogan as my attorney.
