About me

Attorney Michael Redenburg has successfully represented Wall Street professionals, doctors and other licensed professionals accused of various different criminal offenses. As such, he is astutely aware of the impact a criminal charge, let alone a criminal conviction can have on an individual's professional career. Options and collateral consequences are carefully discussed with each client to be sure that the best course of action is determined, agreed upon and fully understood at the earliest possible time.


Michael Redenburg has successfully tried numerous cases to verdict, including felony jury trials venued in Richmond County and Kings County, NY, as well as bench trials in Bronx County, Kings County and New York County. In 2010, Mr. Redenburg was successful in achieving a "not guilty" verdict in favor of his client who was charged with DWI and various other charges. In 2013, Attorney Redenburg obtained acquittals for two clients in a row - one in a Strangulation Case and the other in a Sex Abuse Case. Additionally, Mr. Redenburg is often successful in achieving favorable "plea bargains;" favorable pre-trial dispositions for his clients facing criminal charges, where appropriate. He has handled hundreds of criminal cases, including DWI, shoplifting, assault, drug crimes and domestic violence cases throughout Brooklyn, Manhattan, Bronx, Staten Island and Queens.


In reference to Mr. Redenburg's class action work, where he represents employees who are denied minimum wage and/or overtime pay, misclassified as exempt, or misclassified as independent contractors, Attorney Redenburg has handled such matters in the Eastern District of NY, Southern District of NY, Northern District of NY; and has also been admitted pro-hac vice to handle overtime pay class actions in NJ and Pennsylvania. Along with co-counsel, he has actually recovered for the more than one hundred clients he's represented, hundreds of thousands of dollars for hard working people. Along with co-counsel, he successfully represented a class of NY Kmart loss prevention managers who claimed that they had been misclassified as exempt and denied overtime pay. A  five hundred thousand  ( $500,000.00 ) dollar settlement resulted. 

Additionally, Michael Redenburg regularly represents victims of wrongful arrest, stop and frisk and false arrest in lawsuits against The City of New York in federal court, and has successfully represented dozens of citizens who have been victimized by the NYPD in wrongful arrest & stop and frisk lawsuits. His efforts have led to his clients collectively recovering hundreds of thousands of dollars in compensation.


Mr. Redenburg has been recognized by three (3) different organizations which are invitation only and peer reviewed. In 2014 and 2015 Michael Redenburg was named a SuperLawyer, NY Metro Rising Star by Thomson Reuters and no more than 2.5% of lawyers in a state are given this rating. Attorney Redenburg was also named a Top 40 Under 40 attorney by American Society of Legal Advocates ("ASLA") in 2014 and 2015 and ASLA limits its membership to less than 1.5% of all licensed lawyers nationwide. Additionally, in 2014 and 2015 Attorney Redenburg was named Top 40 Under 40 by The National Trial Lawyers, which is invitation only, based on nomination and peer reviewed.
