Share Article

Personal injury and criminal lawyer Brian Griffin discusses the closing down of a Long Island crime lab.

It allows us to ensure that we have a basis of knowledge for questioning any evidence that has come out of that crime lab.

Foley Griffin, LLP, a New York personal injury law firm that also focuses on criminal defense cases, has recently launched a video detailing criminal defense attorney Brian Griffin’s experience in a case against the Nassau County crime lab*.

Griffin’s help was instrumental in uncovering the widespread problems that had developed with and around the crime lab and, eventually, in closing down the crime lab itself. According to Griffin, the issues had been developing for many years, and they had negatively affected the accuracy of countless criminal cases within that time. From drug testing to handwriting testing, nearly every decision the crime lab had reported was called into question. In Griffin’s words, “It’s allowed us to question many of the prior convictions of clients that have come to this firm now" and "It allows us to ensure that we have a basis of knowledge for questioning any evidence that has come out of that crime lab on pending cases and any evidence that may come out of a future crime lab on cases that are coming through.”

With offices in Nassau County and Suffolk County, Foley Griffin’s reach stretches throughout New York City, Long Island, Queens, Staten Island, and Brooklyn (including Garden City, Hempstead, Huntington, Long Beach, Melville, Mineola, Oyster Bay, and Riverhead). The lawyers at Foley Griffin, LLP, take pride in their extensive experience in the New York area. Their practice areas include serious injury and wrongful death cases, as well as truck and bus accidents, premises accidents, worksite accidents, DWI defense, and traffic violations.

If a client is looking for a DWI Attorney Nassau County or a College Student DWI Attorney Nassau County, Foley Griffin will be ready and qualified to assist.
