Experienced New York Criminal Defense Attorney
25 Years of Experience Litigating Over 1,000 Cases...
With 25 years of experience advocating for over 1,000 individuals in courts all over New York, I have been protecting clients against over-eager government prosecutors, false allegations and police abuse. When charges are brought against you by the police, FBI or a prosecutor, I understand the severity of your situation and the undue anxiety you are facing. As your counsel, I will take every legal action possible to alleviate your problem.
Why I'm Galvanized To Protect Your Rights, My Story...
My personal experience with the law inspired me to become a criminal justice attorney. Just prior to graduating from Vassar College in 1988, I was arrested for a crime I did not commit. I learned during my acquittal process that not everyone who appears before a court is guilty. This belief has endured and became my motivation to seek justice. My goal is to ensure that your constitutional rights are respected, every possible defense is investigated and all avenues of mitigation or justification are presented.
I attended Benjamin Cardozo School of Law in Manhattan where I privately clerked for some of the city's preeminent criminal defense attorneys. Upon graduation, I began working at the Legal Aid Society, Criminal Defense Division in Brooklyn gaining hands-on experience. The vast knowledge and experience I garnered through the years has allowed me to open my own practice specializing in criminal defense where every client is a priority.
Personal Attention, Earns Results...
For the past 25 years, I've handled criminal cases from murder to criminal mischief, drug possession to international smuggling and complex mortgage fraud to petty larceny. Whatever your situation, I will personally discuss your predicament and develop a plan to seek justice.
My combination of knowledge, experience and motivation has resulted in a winning edge for my clients. In drug cases alone, I have earned an impressive 86% success rate - so whether you need a talented trial attorney, an aggressive negotiator or simply need to get arraigned and released, my firm is here to assist you.
