What are Internet and Electronic Crimes?

Internet and electronic crimes are illegal activities that on committed on the web.

Now, entire cyber-task forces have been setup to identify and pursue criminals who are breaking laws through digital engagement.  Because of the nature of the way these internet crimes are being enforced and an often wide net being cast online, the potential that someone can either be mistakenly charged is significant.  There is also confusion when it comes to what the law may actually be, and the penalties for the various internet sex crimes or cybercrime for which a criminal defense lawyer would be your greatest ally.

I worked with Gregg Gallian and had amazing results! I contacted a different lawyer at the beginning of my case and had no communication, effort and I even started to question whether I was forgotten about. I made the change and got with Mr. Gallian and he was quick and effective with making progress with my case! He was always professional, very communicative, knowledgeable in what he does and will get you good results! I highly recommend him and I know I'll be contacting his firm if I ever need to again.

Gregg was an amazing lawyer. He and his team were incredibly professional from the start and Gregg was just as passionate about my issue as I was. He cared - which is something many lawyers don't do. He expedited resolution to my issue and sought to restore justice. I am eternally grateful for him and his colleagues. I had been fighting this issue for 6 months and within 2 weeks of hiring him, it was resolved. Highly recommend if you are in need of a lawyer.

Thorough, respectful and communicative! We went with Mr. Gallian after having a lack luster lawyer. We immediately saw the difference in approach, he truly goes above and beyond, as well as the employees in the office. He got us the best possible outcome, something that wasn't even given as an option with our previous lawyer! I'd recommend his services to anyone. I can't thank him enough for his work.
