About me

I am a criminal defense lawyer by trade, having honed my skills as an assistant district attorney in the nations's third largest county at the beginning of my career. Currently, I represent clients in both federal and state courts in New York on serious criminal matters.

If you have been arrested for any offense, such as a DWI, drug charges, terrorism charges or sex crimes, contact an attorney who is skilled and experienced in complex cases. I also can help if you have been issued a DAT (desk appearance ticket), which is considerd a serious offense. For a serious offense, you need a serious attorney who will listen to you and be available when you need him. 

I do not operate a typical 9 to 5 office. My office is open 7 days a week, and I am available when you need me, whether it is day or night. I give out my cell phone to clients to provide a direct line of communication that enables clients to reach me when they need me. 

My philiosophy is simple: I do not believe in telling a client what he or she wants to hear merely to get them to hire me, but rather, I tell them what they need to know. Often times, those two are not aligned with one another, but in the end you need to hear straight talk from your lawyer. Any attorney can sell you a bill of goods over the phone just to get you to hire them. I do not hanlde my cases in that manner. I handle every case as if it was my own case. 

I put the necessary time in each case to ensure I know that case better than the ADA knows the case. I will conduct my own investigation by speaking with witnesses, going to the crime scene, and pulling the case law that will be helpful in your case. This is critical to a good outcome in your case. 

Most cases are resolved without a jury trial, while others have no other option but to go to trial. Whatever the issue may be with your case, I will advise you as to which path is the best course of action for you. 

While many attorneys may boast that all they do is go to trial on each and every case, the truth is that going to trial on every case would be malpractice, in essence. Not every case needs to go to trial, or would benefit the client from going to trial. In many cases I am able to get the charges dismissed, and my client has his/her life restored. Some cases are best worked out with a reduction in charges to a lesser offense, and some cases are worked out in a plea bargain. Those that don't fit those situations are typically set for trial. 

I have tried more than 75 serious criminal cases to a jury in both New York and Texas, with a very good track record in trial.

As the managing partner of Greco Neyland, PC, I oversee the east coast office, representing clients in all 5 boroughts of New York, as well as Westchester, Putnam and Dutchess counties. 

I am a father of 2 children, so I know how parents think when they come to my office to seek counsel for their child who may find themselves in the crosshairs of the prosecuting branch of law enforcement. I love all things Yankees and New York sports in general.

I believe no person should be denied quality representation merely because they cannot afford a better lawyer. Whatever amount of money you spend on a lawyer is "good, hard earned money."

Every case is different from the next one, and therefore no two fees are alike. We have reasonable rates and we accept all major credit cards. Additionally, we offer flexible payment plans to clients in order to help our clients get the legal representation they need, and still be able to meet their monthly financial obligations.

Call us today so we can get started on your case. Do not wait until it is too late.
