Best Lawyer I could ask for. I needed some one to handle a sensitive family situation and he was able to coordinate communicate, and build trust with our family on our case. Not to mention he won our case and exceeded the amount of money we were looking and expected.

Caner is a Trial Attorney and a Fighter

If you or someone you love has been accused of a crime you need strong representation to avoid spending time in jail. Caner is in the criminal courts weekly and provides robust defense for all cases ranging from murder, gun possession, assault, robbery, burglary, drug sales, drug possession, drinking while driving, larceny and other crimes. 

Caner holds the prosecution to its burden by filing suppression motions, arguing at hearings where the police violated your rights in making a case against you, representing clients at the grand jury if in the rare chance they should testify, selecting juries and trying cases and forcing the prosecution to meet its burden of proving their case beyond a reasonable doubt. 

Do not make the mistake of hiring a lawyer too late or not a trial lawyer who will expose all of the reasonable doubt that makes you not guilty of the charged crimes.

Caner's work in defending his clients has resulted in an acquittal on a charge of murder in the second degree full dismissals of felony assault with a deadly weapon and felony drug sale cases

Caner has defended clients in the Supreme Court of New York at trial on murder and gun possession charges and obtained a verdict of not guilty on murder in the second degree. Caner knows how to pick the right jury for you and knows how to make sure all reasonable doubt is established. 

Caner handles all aspects of a criminal accusation from surrendering on warrants, I-Cards and bench warrants to negotiating with the prosecution, motions, hearings, suppression of evidence illegally obtained and trial.

Caner previously worked with the criminal defense practice of the Legal Aid Society of New York while still in law school and continued to hone and sharpen his skills at trial practice and criminal defense.

Additionally, if you are a victim of an automobile accident, construction accident, hit and run, trucking accident, bicycle accident, slip or trip and fall, or a civil rights violation you need a trial lawyer to fight for you and get you the compensation you deserve. Caner Demirayak has been a trial attorney for nearly a decade and knows how to take a case to trial if the insurance companies or person responsible for your injury refuses to pay you what you deserve. A trial attorney is crucial to getting you the most money as the threat of a full trial with a jury of your peers is never off the table. You should never settle for less than what you are entitled to for your injuries. 

You should also never make the mistake of hiring a big national firm for your case as you will not get the same personalized and focused attention to your case as you would with a small firm like Caner Law. A small firm treats your case like it is the only case that matters. To the big firms you are just a file number. Your case is all that matters to Caner Law.
