About Me


Peter E. Brill has extensive criminal trial experience in state
and federal court, arbitration and administrative proceedings. He has
won cases for his clients in practically every county in the New York
metropolitan area. A former Assistant District Attorney, he now focuses
on criminal defense of both civilians and law enforcement personnel,
representing clients charged with a variety of misdemeanors and
felonies. He graduated cum laude from Brown University and received his
law degree from Georgetown University Law Center. He is also an Adjunct
Professor at the New York Institute of Technology.

Peter Brill's background and education in the law far exceed the
average criminal defense attorney, and his experience in the courtroom,
at both the State and Federal level, is significant. In addition to Mr.
Brill, our firm also has several other highly experienced criminal
defense attorneys. Together, these accomplished lawyers provide a
wealth of criminal defense knowledge and experience that is second to
none in the New York metropolitan area, and without peer on Long Island.
Among the many criminal charges for which we can provide smart, aggressive criminal defense include:


  • DWI, DUI, and DWAI

  • Domestic and family violence

  • Sex crimes

  • Murder, assault, and other serious felonies

  • White collar crimes

  • Internet crimes and cyber crime

  • Juvenile crimes

    No matter what kind of trouble you are in, we are here to help. We
    don't judge our clients by the type of crime they are charged with.
    After all, everyone is entitled to a zealous legal defense. When you
    choose the Brill Legal Group, you can rest assured that your defense
    will be of the highest quality.
