About Me

Richard W. Young became an attorney after retiring from the NYPD. He was promoted to Police Sergeant in only 3 years and served in various capacities including Sergeant-In-Charge of the largest Anti-Crime Unit in New York City. A serious injury received in the line of duty cut short his career with the NYPD. His experience with law enforcement helps greatly in both criminal and civil cases.
