Being accused of a crime is a very serious matter. And having a criminal conviction on your record will have long-standing and devastating consequences for you and your family.
Given the stakes, when searching for a New York City Criminal Lawyer that you or your family can rely on, you should find a defense attorney who:

My name is Frederick “Fred” L. Sosinsky. And over the last 22 years, I’ve built a solid reputation among my peers, prosecutors and the judiciary in the New York metropolitan area as an aggressive and skilled NYC Criminal Defense Attorney.
More important though, is the reputation I have with my clients.
During my two decades of practice, I’ve represented thousands of clients in criminal defense matters in the federal and New York State courts. My clients have been accused of every crime in the book, ranging from the most serious charges such as murder, drug trafficking and sexual assaults to white collar crimes such as conspiracy, mail, wire and insurance fraud and labor racketeering.
And I even help clients with misdemeanor charges like shoplifting and driving while intoxicated.
And in most of these cases, I was able to use my experience and knowledge of criminal law and procedures to gain a dismissal or reduction of the charges, negotiate a favorable outcome, or win a not-guilty verdict.
And in a number of cases, I was involved at such an early stage of the investigation, I was able to convince the authorities not to charge my clients at all.
But most importantly, I know that to a client and their family, all criminal charges are serious matters – no matter how minor they are. Every case and every client deserves an attorney who will do everything possible to gain a dismissal, a reduction of the charges, or if possible, an acquittal of the charges. That is exactly what I promise to do for you….do everything possible and do it affordably.
