  • Donald James Kilfin

    I have known Roger Futerman since the late 1990's. Throughout my several years as a prosecutor, Roger was one of a very small handful of criminal defense attorneys that could cause me to lose sleep. I tried dozens of cases as prosecutor and I can say without a doubt that Roger Futerman is the most skilled trial attorney I have ever crossed swords with. This guy IS the real deal.
