Review James Deffet

About Me

I worked as a prosecutor at both the State and City levels for several years after graduating from law school and then worked defending insurance companies for several years after leaving the prosecutor's offices.  I have now been able to use those experiences to better represent my clients in their personal injury and criminal cases.
