About Me

Mr. Davidoff’s extensive experience and education is an asset to our firm and invaluable to our clients. Mr. Davidoff is admitted to practice in the state courts of Florida, Massachusetts (inactice), New York, federal courts in Florida and New York, the United States Tax Court, and the United States Supreme Court. Mr. Davidoff earned his Bachelors of Arts in Political Science and Bachelors of Business Administration from Emory University, a Masters in Business Administration from the University of Miami, a Juris Doctor from New York Law School (magna cum laude), and a Master of Legal Letters in Taxation from New York University School of Law. Having previously served as a prosecutor for several years and represented clients involved in small and large matters, Mr. Davidoff is able to view cases from a very multifaceted perspective.


Mr. Davidoff has represented clients such as: attorneys from large law firms such as Latham & Watkins, LLP and Kelley Dry & Warren, LLP who were involved in criminal tax matters, investment bankers from Bank of America (the Parmalat transactions) and Enron Corporation who were involved in two of the world’s largest corporate collapses, a former federal government employee in New Jersey Federal Court on theft of government funds (Section 8 housing), and clients charged with life felonies to simple misdemeanor and DUI/DWI charges. Mr. Davidoff is also able to handle commercial matters involving criminal issues, such as when he represented a client whose attorney forged the buyers’ signature in a mortgage note, clients whose multi-million dollar company purchased was actually a worthless entity, a client who sought a divorce based on domestic violence, clients whose restaurant was purchased based on fraud and deception, as well as matters involving corporations such as Hewlett-Packard and the grey market.


Mr. Davidoff has obtained excellent outcomes for his criminal clients, including dismissal of an Indictment for a radiologist client in the largest health insurance fraud case brought in New York, a minimal incarceration sentence for a DUI manslaughter client, and a probation only plea in an attempted murder/armed kidnapping case where the client was facing two life sentences.


Mr. Davidoff has been equally successful in his representation of clients in civil matters.  Mr. Davidoff has been able to obtain great results for his civil clients including dismissal of medical malpractice cases, dismissal of RICO claims, monetary judgments for civil theft clients, and non-inclusion in civil fraud cases.
