Manhattan Defense Lawyer

Facing criminal charges can be scary, whether they are a felony or a misdemeanor. The District Attorney’s office is pressing down, perhaps offering a plea deal or maybe vowing to press ahead all the way to trial. Either way, defendants are facing the prospect of jail time, fines, the loss of reputation in the community, and a record that will trail them around even after the sentence has been served. 

That’s where Attorney William J. Furber comes in. He’s a Manhattan defense lawyer with the experience, legal knowledge, and courtroom savvy that defendants need at this critical hour in their lives. A managing attorney here at The Law Office of Charles H. Kee, Attorney Furber can be reached either at (800) 954-5724 or right here online to set up a free consultation. 

Our Practice Areas

The criminal defense field is wide-ranging, and our work includes defending clients charged with the following: 

Drug Crimes

Whether it’s simple possession or large-scale trafficking, drug convictions come with consequences that can make getting a job or finding suitable housing more difficult—and that’s after a potential jail sentence has been served. Our Manhattan defense attorney understands defendants’ constitutional protections and how to ensure they are upheld. 

Sex Crimes

From rape to sexual assault to indecent exposure, even the allegations of sex crimes can have a terrible impact on a defendant’s personal and professional reputation. It’s far too common for society as a whole—including a defendant’s own family—to rush to judgment before the evidence is heard. Our defendants have the security of knowing that their lawyer is firmly in their corner and prepared to fight vigorously to clear their good name. 

Theft Crimes

A theft crime covers a broad gamut of possible charges, from stealing the neighbor’s tools to embezzling huge sums of money at the office. Attorney William J. Furber understands how to approach these kinds of investigations and how to challenge a prosecutor. From lack of intent to duress, there is no shortage of possible defenses, and we’ll exhaustively review them all to determine the best strategy in each particular case. 

Violent Crimes

These allegations, from assault to robbery and all the way up to homicide, can turn into long prison sentences if they end up with a guilty verdict. But there are basic principles in American law—that defendants are innocent until proven guilty, that their guilt must be beyond any reasonable doubt, and that a jury of twelve people must have a unanimous belief that such guilt has been established. That’s a very high bar to hit. It can even be harder for the D.A. when a tough-minded, experienced defense lawyer is in your corner.

Criminal charges can result from actions taken while driving a car, whether speeding or having too much to drink. We can help with charges like these: 

Traffic Violations

We will thoroughly review the evidence, challenge the accuracy of citations, and examine any possible procedural errors. Our goal is to mitigate the impact of the charges, minimize fines, and prevent negative consequences such as license suspension or increased insurance rates.


A DUI charge can have severe repercussions, including license suspension, fines, and even jail time. We will scrutinize the legality of the traffic stop, challenge the accuracy of field sobriety tests or breathalyzer results, and explore any potential violations of your rights. Our aim is to secure the best possible outcome for you, whether it involves reducing charges, negotiating for alternative sentencing, or fighting for an outright acquittal.

Depending on the defendant and the alleged victim, certain criminal charges could lead to Title IX issues if the alleged incident happened on campus. 

Title IX Legal Defense

Title IX charges often involve students charged with sexual assault, harassment, or discrimination. We recognize the significant impact these allegations can have on one’s academic and personal life. Our Manhattan defense lawyer will investigate thoroughly, negotiate aggressively, and advocate vigorously in the defense of our client’s rights and freedoms.
