New York Criminal Social Media Defense Attorney

The Experience and Understanding You Need

The Internet has fundamentally changed the lives of many people in the world, and in some ways it has changed the nature of criminality as well. It is easier than ever to find information about one another and to use that information to harm others. The law continues to evolve in an attempt to keep pace with changing technology and to protect the public.

At the Brill Legal Group, we stay up-to-date on new developments in the law and maintain a thriving Internet and cyber crime practice. Part of our defense work involves defending those accused of cyber-bullying. Cyber-bullying through various social networking sites is an unfortunate development that has gained publicity recently. Our New York social network crime attorneys know how to handle these cases and many other criminal charges that arise out of social media use.

Cyber-Bullying

Using technology such as social networking websites to harass, antagonize or cause harm to someone else is referred to as cyber-bullying. It has become a major concern for teenagers, college students and their families. Unfortunately, innocent people can be charged with cyber-bullying if their identity is stolen and the perpetrator sets up a false social media account posing as the innocent person and harassing a victim. Our experienced criminal defense attorneys work hard to uncover the truth and protect the rights of those falsely accused of this serious crime.

Popular social media sites that are sometimes used for cyber-bullying are:

  • Facebook
  • LinkedIn
  • Twitter

Defense for the Full Range of Internet Crimes

Social networks are also used for other crimes, and we build strong defenses for clients accused of these crimes. We defend those facing charges of:

  • Luring and solicitation of children online
  • Child pornography
  • Credit card fraud
  • Hacking
  • Phishing (setting up websites for the purpose of defrauding users)

We have an extensive network of law enforcement officials and attorneys throughout the country that can assist us in these complex cases. We have the resources and knowledge needed to represent people charged with Internet crimes in other states and other countries who were extradited to New York to face charges.

In addition, if you have been victimized by cyber-bullying or any other type of online criminal act, please do not hesitate to speak with us about what we can do for you.
