Aaron Mysliwiec

About me

Mr. Mysliwiec is a founding partner of Miedel & Mysliwiec, LLP, a boutique litigation firm that specializes in helping individuals and companies in criminal, civil, and regulatory matters.  Our lawyers know how stressful it is to be the subject of a government investigation or to be confronted by criminal charges, and as a small firm, we are able to offer our clients the individualized and personal attention they deserve.   With more than 35 years of combined experience in criminal and civil litigation, we have built a reputation for toughness, integrity, and dogged advocacy on behalf of our clients.


Aaron Mysliwiec has defended clients such as a Fortune 500 company investigating contract fraud to a senior citizen charged with attempted murder who could not afford to pay a lawyer. He strongly believes that no matter who you are or what you've been accused of doing, you deserve to have someone in your corner.

Mr. Mysliwiec's practice includes defending clients against "white collar" criminal charges and against criminal charges such as murder, rape, terrorism, and narcotics distribution. This representation involves defending clients in both state and federal courts in New York and in other state and federal courts around the country.

He has successfully tried cases involving charges that range from Money Laundering to Grand Larceny to First Degree Murder to Material Support for Terrorism to First Degree Rape. He has also obtained dismissals in hundreds of cases and negotiated hundreds of desirable plea bargains on behalf of his clients.

Mr. Mysliwiec graduated from the Georgetown University Law Center in 1997 and from Carleton College in 1993. He is admitted to the bar in New York. He has also been admitted to practice in the United States District Courts for the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York, the District of Minnesota, the Northern District of Texas, and the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit and the Fifth Circuit. In addition, Mr. Mysliwiec is a graduate of the National Criminal Defense College's trial skills program.

In addition to Mr. Mysliwiec's experience, he is a Board Member and President-Elect for the New York State Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. He has also lectured and trained other lawyers on topics such as jury selection, cross-examination, closing argument, and the illegal imposition of post-release supervision on New York State prisoners and he has contributed materials to a National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyer training on litigating an "eye-witness" identification case. Finally, Mr. Mysliwiec has also appeared on Court TV's The Best Defense.
