Greatest tax fraud lawyer
No words would be enough to describe how grateful I am for the job these attorneys did for my family. My daughter was charged with tax evasion for omitting some seemingly unimportant staff on her return. She was facing a substantial fine and a few years of prison time and potentially she could get fired. My wife’s post-operative care largely depends on our daughter’s income, and as I am retired now and spent almost all of our savings on the treatment, the daughter’s incarceration would basically mean my wife’s death. Thankfully, we found Joseph Potashnik’s firm, and its tax attorneys resolved the issue with a civil settlement. Mr Potashnik was very compassionate and understanding and helpful. You know, the need for criminal defense doesn’t arise often, but if my family ever faces it again, we’ll know whom to turn to.

I couldn’t be more grateful
My wife and I were investigated for investment fraud, as we bought some stock of a firm the company I work at partners with. Surely, this in no way influenced our decision, since it was a long-planned investment. But were we to be proved guilty, we would both face jail time, not to mention that I would lose my job which I love. Joseph Potashnik helped us collect the necessary evidence and show that the investigators had not enough facts to proceed with the case. The choice we made when looking for the right attorney turned out to be the best decision we took, because Mr Potashnik is very knowledgeable about the securities and investment procedures and has experience dealing with related accusations.

A reliable lawyer
I was referred to this firm by an ex colleague whom Joseph Potashnik had helped with a case similar to mine. I was investigated by the Office of Medicaid Inspector General and thanks to the job Mr Potashnik did for me the case didn’t end in prosecution, I didn’t even get any administrative or civil charges. At every hearing Joseph accompanied me I was always sure he did his homework diligently, and he was prepared to answer any question on my behalf. Also, throughout all the case the firm demonstrated strong work ethic and clear transparency in terms of all payments. This is the firm that I would highly recommend to anyone who is facing health care related investigation or charges.

Best immigration fraud defense
The immigration attorney who had helped me file investor immigrant visa application got charged with visa fraud, the case was huge at that time. The authorities started investigating all the cases he handled, and I got targeted too. It turned out that my documents had some inaccuracies. Luckily, I was smart enough to start searching for an attorney right when I got a letter from the USCIS. I found this firm on the Internet, Mr Potashnik picked up the phone. He was the one who took on the case, and he ended the investigation in about 7 months with no charges filed. These were the most stressful days of my life. Fortunately, Mr Potashnik and his colleagues turned out to be very competent in this sphere, they indeed know all ins and outs of immigration law and visa fraud defense. They were always available via phone, even when I called on late evenings or weekends (sorry for that, I was really freaking out) and were very patient when I asked to explain every single thing happening on the case. I’d like to thank these guys once again for their help. And if you’re investigated for immigration fraud, don’t hesitate to hire Joseph Potashnik.

This lawyer saved my job
I am a nurse at a Queens hospital, and I was accused of misconduct by my employer. Basically I was supposed to pay for someone else’s mistake but I was determined not to lose my license just because someone had chosen ME as a scapegoat. Joseph Potashnik himself worked on my case, he was very compassionate and understanding. Still he told me how low my chances of getting through with OPD hearings successfully were. However, Mr Potashnik collected all the necessary evidence, talked to the investigators and accompanied me during all hearings, and we managed to get the case dismissed and retain my license. Thanks a lot once again Joseph!

No words can describe this man!
Mr. Potashnick is by far the only lawyer you should ever call if you ever needed one. I was investigated for fraud by the Hra and I was terrified. On a normal daily basis, I am an extremley anxious person so when I was investigated my anxiety had reached a level that I didn't even know was possible to reach. This man is an angel. I went to several lawyers and they all tried to frighten me saying how my case was so bad, that it was one of the top cases out there. Well, these other lawyers just like to scare people for no reason just so that you would sign them. Not Joseph Potashnick though, he was so sweet, caring and above all he made me relax, my anxiety was gone the minute we started the consultation. Literally, my case took 1 week in half. 1 week! That's crazy! 1 week to have me feeling normal again. On top of that I didn't even pay one fourth of what we thought they'd ask. Please people, it's is hard to find people like Joseph in today's world, he truly is the best. No other lawyer can compare to him. To top it all off, his secretary Salina is great too. Very understanding and walks you through everything

Best lawyer for me!
I had a very sensitive legal problem for which i knew I needed a very competent attorney. Without going into details, my professional career was in jeopardy. I wasn't sure where to find a lawyer and I didn't feel comfortable asking around for recommendations. I used the Internet and came across one of Joseph Potashnik's videos, which was very informative. He talked about the exact issue I had! I looked up his reviews on Avvo and Google, which were good, and decided to give him a call. I called in the evening and I was surprised that Joseph himself answered the phone. I knew right away that he knew what he was talking about. He was confident and calm and I felt much better just talking to him. I made an appointment to see him the next day. They do charge consultation fees but I felt it was worth it. Joseph is very straightforward and down to earth. He doesn't tell you things you want to hear, which I appreciated. I decided to hire him and it was the best decision I made! Joseph and his staff delivered the best result i could hope for. The situation was resolved and I could move on with life. This was my personal experience and I would recommend joseph when you need a lawyer who actually cares!

Honest lawyers do exist ! Joseph Potashnik is the proof.
Joseph Potashnik was the 2nd lawyer I hired for HRA investigation case and let me tell you that walking out of his office I felt in good hands. 1 day later I got a call with update, 3 weeks later my case was settled with an amount way lower than expected. Never asked me about bank acc stmts nor how much money I make annually. Just to see the difference, 1 st attorney hired, asked for all bank stmt, all income I have, scared the hell out of me that my case will most definitely go to criminal court... (I will not even mention how any lies ) Guess what, thank God I switched attorneys and that Joseph Potashnik took my case. He was honest about all aspects and his paralegal Salina is just available to take and follow up on your questions at any hour. Joseph Potashnik is the only honest attorney left out there. Thank you !

amazing team!
I will highly recommend Joseph and his team to anyone who is in trouble. Knowledgeable, trustworthy, professional and, most of all - caring! The day I found out I was investigated (medicaid), I felt my life is about to be ruined. But I've made a good decision and dialed Joseph Potashnik office late evening, and he called me right back. My case was settled in less than two months. To anyone who is investigated, please, take a deep breath and call Joseph, you won't be disappointed. Great lawyer! Thank you Joseph!

I am a health professional who was charged with Medicaid Fraud. Joseph and Selena were very competent and closed my case within 2 months of when charges were brought against me. My OMIG case was also appealed by Joseph and within 30 days I received a call from Joseph informing me of no longer being on the exclusion list. Joseph was very straightforward and told me the worst and best case scenario. My result was on the best case scenario list. I would recommend him to family and friends. Thank You Joseph and Selena for being compassionate and being diligent.

Great attorney
Joe handled my Medicaid case last month. I was investigated for fraud I did not commit. Joe told me it would take a few months and that there was no point rushing. He pushed the investigator into closing the case after about 3 months. I'm very great full, thank you.

Competent, Trustworthy, Great Lawyer!!!
Joe recently handled my Medicaid fraud case. I found him on google and his reviews were great, so i called him. It was late at night and he answered the phone and spend about 20 minutes speaking with me. I felt better right away. I didn't relax until Joe called me a few weeks later and told me that I won't be prosecuted and the case will settle! I can't thank him enough! I highly recommend Joe to anyone looking for a great lawyer.

Food Stamps Fraud Client
Reached out to Joseph when we received an investigation letter from the HRA. We tried another lawyer but didn't feel right, so we kept on looking until we came about Joseph's video and google reviews. Joseph was upfront and made the whole process very simple and effortless for us. In the end, the case was resolved quickly and no charges were brought. When the case was over, his office asked me to leave Internet reviews and I'm very glad to do it. I highly recommend Joseph!

Thank You Mr. Potashnik!!!
I would highly reccommend Mr. Potashnik. I was hit with a fraud investigation and called him on a Sunday and he called me right back. I went to see him Monday and he was very honest with me on the possible outcomes. He worked on my case right away and was able to settle it on an administrative level. Case was closed today and I am relieved.

Amazing Legal Team
Joseph Potashnik and his staff are outstanding. Mr. Potashnik is very straight forward, he gave us all the facts and scenarios, the good, the bad and the very ugly, on our very first meeting! He is so straight forward, it’s intimidating, especially as you are going through a difficult process. He and his staff are ALWAYS available to answer any questions you may have with great professionalism, even if you call multiple times with the same question. Mr. Potashnick and his excellent team will assist you in you legal matter, we highly recommend them.

Wonderful Lawyer !!!!
I hired Mr. Potashnik to handle my fraud case after speaking with his paralegal Selena several times on the phone and then meeting with him. Most other lawyers tried to scare me into hiring them but Mr. Potashnik was very straightforward and clear about my options without attempting to frighten me. I was a very anxious client and often emailed late or called at least once a day. Neither Mr. Potashnik nor Selena ever made me feel as if I was being a pest and for that I am grateful. He settled my case very quickly which I am even more grateful for. All in all I am extremely satisfied with the help I received from his office.
