New York Criminal Lawyer Case Results

In more than twenty years of practice, I have represented thousands of corporate and individual clients in criminal investigations and prosecutions. I have been trying criminal cases since 1987 in both the federal and state courts with remarkable success. However, most satisfying are those cases in which I’ve either been able to have my client avoid any criminal charges by NY State or Federal authorities, and those in which charges were brought but were dismissed without the necessity of ongoing litigation and the emotional and financial costs to the client and his family. Below is a representative sampling of some of my recent and/or more interesting successes.

A young man who had allegedly been distributing large quantities of marijuana in the Bronx had his apartment searched pursuant to warrant.
