As a former New York Assistant District Attorney and a former ARMY JAG, my experience in criminal law is both extensive and diverse. Unlike many "general practitioners" my practice is devoted exclusively to defending those accused of criminal offenses. I have handled over a thousand criminal cases and tried dozens to verdict. I appear regularly as a legal commentator on Fox News Channel and CNN, and my cases have received national and international coverage.
I believe what differentiates me from other attorneys is the individual attention and compassion I show to my clients. I take a special pride in being the lone voice for individuals facing the powerful machinations of the criminal justice system. There is nothing more satisfying than a former client contacting me, months or years after their case is over, to tell me of the better times they now find themselves in.
I have fulltime offices in both Manhattan and Long Island, and I handle criminal cases throughout the metropolitan area.
I reside in New York City and am the father of a beautiful nine year old girl. When not practicing law I enjoy playing ice hockey, exercising, reading and travel.
