    Practice Area:
    Criminal Defense
    Date:
    Oct 18, 2011
    Outcome:
    All charges in Indictment charging sexual offenses dismissed
    Description:
    After a four year legal battle conducted by New York Criminal Law Attorney Todd D. Greenberg, all criminal charges have been dismissed against a Winthrop University Hospital Medical Technician accused of fondling three patients. The case is an attestation to the diligence and persistence of New York Criminal Attorney Todd D. Greenberg, which included two Jury Trials and a reversal by the Appellate Division and, finally, a dismissal of the single remaining charge by the Nassau County District Attorney on the eve of a third Trial. On October 18, 2011, Supreme Court Justice William C. Donnino granted an Adjournment in Contemplation of Dismissal to the remaining charge of Sexual Abuse which means that the case will be dismissed and sealed. Once again, knowledge of the law, preparation of the case and a firm believer in the innocence of our client has resulted in the complete exoneration of Todd Greenberg’s client and dismissal of an Indictment.
  • People v. Defendant

    Practice Area:
    Criminal Defense
    Date:
    Mar 24, 2011
    Outcome:
    Defendant found "Not Guilty" of DWI at trial
    Description:
    The Defendant, eighteen years old when arrested for Driving while Intoxicated, was found "Not Guilty" after Trial on March 24, 2011 in Criminal Court, Queens County. The Defendant was alleged to have been driving approximately 100 miles per hour on Cross Bay Boulevard when he was pulled over by the police after he made an abrupt turn and spun around going in the opposite direction. The Officer, a Captain, testified that the Defendant had a "strong odor of alcohol on his breath, bloodshot eyes and slurred speech." The Defendant stated he had "one beer." The strategy of defense attorney Todd Greenberg was to show that the Defendant had full control of his vehicle when he made this maneuver and made the maneuver intentionally. On Cross Examination, the Officer testified that the Defendant was in control of his vehicle when he made the turn and that it was a turn like you would see a "secret service agent" make in an emergency. Although the defendant admitted to having one bottle of beer, Attorney Greenberg successfully argued that the actions of the defendant that night was not reckless driving by a drunk individual, but was reckless driving by a person who intentionally drove his vehicle in that manner. It should be noted that the area where this occurred, Cross Bay Boulevard, has been historically known as a speeding area due to the straight highway and lack of pedestrian traffic. Once again, instead of having a criminal record, knowledge of the law and a prepared presentation resulted in a verdict of "not guilty" for a client of Addabbo and Greenberg. (The defendant was found guilty of speeding)
  • People v. Defendant

    Practice Area:
    Criminal Defense
    Date:
    Jan 11, 2011
    Outcome:
    Dfendant acquitted after trial by Jury
    Description:
    On January 11, 2011, a Brooklyn Jury acquitted the Defendant, a thirty- seven year old man, of the Class C Felony of Criminal Possession of a Gun that was in a car in which he was sitting. The offer prior to trial was seven years incarceration for having a loaded weapon in the car. Without calling any witnesses on his own behalf, and through extensive cross-examination of the police witnesses by Defense Attorney Todd D. Greenberg, it was established that the defendant had a dispute with his girlfriend on the street, which the police saw, and observed the defendant get into the car wherein the police approached the car, asked him to exit and arrested him for Disorderly Conduct. Upon the arrest, the arresting officer stated that he observed the "butt of the gun" sticking out from under the seat and arrested the defendant for the weapons charge. Even though there is a presumption of possession of a gun when in a vehicle under New York Law, Attorney Greenberg successfully argued to the Jury that the Defendant's presence in the car was only for a "fleeting moment" and there was no evidence that the defendant brought the car to the location or otherwise exercised dominion and control over the car. Instead of taking the offered plea, Mr. Greenberg advised the client to take the case to trial wherein the Jury found, based on Mr. Greenberg's arguments, that the presumption of possession should not apply in this case and found defendant "not guilty". Once again, knowledge of the Law and knowledge of the facts has helped a client of Addabbo and Greenberg avoid a serious criminal conviction and jail time.
  • People v. Defendant

    Practice Area:
    Criminal Defense
    Date:
    Feb 01, 2012
    Outcome:
    DEFENDANT ACQUITTED OF ENDANGERING CHILD
    Description:
    On February 1st, 2012 our client was found "Not Guilty" of Endangering the Welfare of a Child, Menacing and Criminal Possession of a Weapon. The Defendant was arrested and charged in an ongoing dispute with his neighbor with having a verbal argument, then brandishing a machete and threatening to kill his neighbor's daughter, the fifteen-year-old complainant. Even though the District Attorney presented four eyewitnesses, during Cross Examination, Criminal Defense Attorney Todd Greenberg was able to show inconsistencies between each witness's testimony which led the Trial Judge to doubt the credibility of the witnesses. Once again, a falsely accused client of Addabbo and Greenberg has been found "Not Guilty" of all criminal charges.

The Plaintiff underwent shoulder surgery repairing a torn rotator cuff. The case settled for $500,000.00 on the eve of jury selection. Due to the hard work of the attorneys at Addabbo and Greenberg, this injured laborer was able to be compensated for his pain, suffering and lost wages.
  • “NOT GUILTY” VERDICT ON ASSAULT CHARGES AGAINST QUEENS BUILDER

    Practice Area:
    Criminal Defense
    Date:
    Jan 01, 2012
    Outcome:
    Not Guilty verdict
    Description:
    On April 9, 2012, a Queens business owner was found "NOT GUILTY" of all charges after trial. The Defendant was charged with Felony assault wherein it was alleged that he and a foreman physically beat a worker and then commanded a dog to bite the worker. Underlying the criminal case was an allegation by this particular employee and other employees who filed a Federal civil suit against the Queens contractor regarding unpaid wages. Criminal attorney Todd Greenberg was able to establish that the alleged victim lied in prior proceedings, had memory issues and, most important, that the scenario as stated by the witness was simply impossible to have occurred. Once again, the best result possible was obtained by assault attorney Todd Greenberg based on his research, knowledge of the law and trial preparation.
