Hiring a Defense Attorney for Disorderly Conduct in New York State
NY City Police

In New York State, disorderly conduct is a violation, which is not considered a crime. As such, a disorderly conduct conviction will not result in a criminal record, unlike misdemeanor or felony convictions.

Hiring a criminal defense lawyer right from the start is good advice. An experienced attorney will protect your rights and will work to have disorderly conduct charges dismissed or reduced.
