Laura K. Gasiorowski, Esq., who has been practicing criminal defense law since 1994, joined the Stahl Criminal Defense Lawyers in 2005, and has concentrated her career on complex pre-trial, trial and appellate matters in a wide variety of state and federal criminal matters, including mail fraud, money laundering, gambling, narcotics violations, murder, and RICO.

Most notably, Ms. Gasiorowski represented one of the two capital defendants who avoided an execution sentence in the federal death penalty trial of individuals involved in the bombings of American Embassies in Tanzania and Nairobi, Africa.

Ms. Gasiorowski also served as lead counsel in the sentencing phase of the State of Louisiana v. Leonard Williams death penalty murder trial, coordinating, preparing and presenting the defense's mitigation case.  In the Williams case as well, the defendant was spared execution and received a life sentence.  In addition to her criminal practice, Ms. Gasiorowski has also represented police officers in civil service hearings related to employment matters, and in civil rights and equal protection litigation in the federal court as counsel for PANO, the Police Association of New Orleans.

Ms. Gasiorowski has specialized experience in pretrial motion work, sentencing matters, and appellate brief writing.  Among her reported cases are Jenkins v. Artuz, 294 F.3d 284 (2nd Cir. 2002), in which the court order a new trial based on evidence of prosecutorial misconduct in examining a state witness; and State v. Bishop, 686 So.2d 1053, 96-694 (La.App 5 Cir. 1996), in which the Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit in Louisiana agreed that application of sexual offender notification laws prohibited constituted ex post facto punishment and therefore was prohibited.

Other significant published cases decided in Ms. Gasiorowski’s clients' favor include the first case in which a United States federal district court held that foreign subjects interrogated abroad by American law enforcement are entitled to Fifth Amendment protections, and a case in which the district court struck several aggravating factors from death penalty notice.

Ms. Gasiorowski is admitted to the state bars in New York, New Jersey, and Louisiana.  She is also admitted to the United States District Court, District of New Jersey; the Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, and United States District Court, Southern District of New York, and the United States District Court, Eastern District of Louisiana.

If you are looking for a skilled and dedicated criminal defense lawyer, I highly recommend Laura Gasiorowski and her team at Stahl Gasiorowski Criminal Defense. Their expertise and commitment to their clients are truly exceptional, and they are sure to provide you with the best possible legal representation What stands out about Laura and her team is their professionalism, expertise, and attention to detail. Laura took time to listen to my needs and concerns and provided personalized legal advice tailored to my unique situation. She also has an aggressive approach to defending her clients' rights which made me feel reassured that I was in good hands and she had my best interest. There was never a call she wouldn't answer. She was always available to answer any questions or concerns and was very honest and precise with her responses. God forbid, ( knock on wood ) I ever had another situation where I needed representation, Laura would be my go to hands down. Because of her exceptional work and knowledge of the Law I can remain a free man with my family. I am very grateful to Stahls Gasiorowski Law Firm.

Great Attorney
Mrs. Gasiorowski was nothing short of a phenomenal defense attorney. She was very thorough and caring. She fought hard for me to receive a fair sentence. Even when the pandemic hit Mrs. Gasiorowski didn’t miss a beat!

Laura Gasiorowski experience when she was working as Mr Stahl associate in my case.
My experience with LG was of a smart ,caring attorney who in my case was important in getting me to understand the reality of my situation. The legal aspects of my case was very hard to understand even for experienced lawyers who had voluminous experience with federal government. EVERYTHING MR Stahl and Ms. Gasiorowski did ,was clearly thought out and gave me the trust and feeling they were working for me and my family best interest . This was not only on the legal aspects which they are excellent . The personal input was unbelievable and extremely important when dealing with debilitating and life altering charges.
