NEW YORK CRIMINAL DEFENSE LAWYER. FORMER PROSECUTOR. FEDERAL & STATE CRIMINAL DEFENSE. DWI DEFENSE.

I am a criminal defense lawyer by trade, having honed my skills as an assistant district attorney in the nation's third largest county at the beginning of my career. Currently, I represent clients in both federal and state courts in New York, on serious criminal matters.

If you have been arrested for any criminal offense, such as a DWI, guns, drug charges, assault, terrorism charges, or sex crimes, contact an attorney who is skilled and experienced in complex cases. If you are currently being investigated by the government on any criminal matter, call us at once.

I also can help if you have been issued a DAT (desk appearance ticket), which is considered an arrest, and still presents potentially serious repercussions if you are convicted. For a serious offense, you need a serious attorney who will listen to you and be available when you need them. 

My philiosophy is simple: I do not believe in telling a client what he or she wants to hear merely to get them to hire me, but rather, I tell them what they need to know. Often times, those two are not aligned with one another, but in the end you need to hear straight talk from your lawyer. Any attorney can sell you a bill of goods over the phone just to get you to hire them. I do not handle my practice in that manner. I handle every case as if it was my own case, or that of someone very close to me.

I put the necessary time in each case to ensure I know that case better than the prosecutor knows the case. I will conduct my own investigation by speaking with witnesses, going to the crime scene, and pulling the case law that will be helpful in your case. This is critical to a good outcome in your case. 

Most cases are resolved without a jury trial, while others have no other option but to go to trial. Whatever the issue may be with your case, I will advise you as to which path is the best course of action for you. 

While many attorneys may boast that all they do is go to trial on each and every case, the truth is that going to trial on every case would be malpractice, in essence. Not every case needs to go to trial, or would benefit the client from going to trial. In many cases I am able to get the charges dismissed, and my client has his/her life restored. Some cases are best worked out with a reduction in charges to a lesser offense, and some cases are worked out in a plea bargain. Those that don't fit those situations are typically set for trial. 

I have tried more than 75 serious criminal cases to a jury, with a very good track record in trial.

As the managing partner of Greco Neyland, PC, I oversee the east coast office, representing clients in all 5 boroughts of New York, as well as Westchester, Putnam and Dutchess counties. 

I am a father of 2 children, so I know how parents think when they come to my office to seek counsel for their child who may find themselves in the crosshairs of the prosecuting branch of law enforcement. 

I believe no person should be denied quality representation merely because they cannot afford a better lawyer. Whatever amount of money you spend on a lawyer is "good, hard earned money."

Every case is different from the next one, and therefore no two fees are alike. We have reasonable rates and we accept all major credit cards, in addition to Venmo, Zelle, and CashApp. Additionally, we offer flexible payment plans to clients in order to help our clients get the legal representation they need, and still be able to meet their monthly financial obligations.

Call us today so we can get started on your case. Do not wait until it is too late.

Need the best Attorney?
Need the best lawyer? Well that's exactly who I needed to have my back, and that's who I got! Jeff Greco, and his colleagues are hands down the most informative legal team I've ever hired. Mr. Greco, and his esteemed associates walked me through my entire case. Coached me in areas that needed addressing, and never missed a beat. If ever I'm in need of a legal team to represent me, I'll not hesitate to give Mr. Greco and his associates a call. I highly recommend Mr. Greco, and can't thank him enough for the time, effort, and attention to detail him, and his team put forth.

I'm extremely grateful for his help
From the minute I contacted Jeff's office I was able to get an attorney who would listen to me. I had an old case from seven years ago. Jeff and Juliana walked me through the steps to get it resolved. Jeff was able to help me clear up my past from a different state. I feel a big weight lifted off my shoulders.

Successful criminal defense
I sought legal support from attorney Jeff Greco and his law firm for criminal charges. Jeff brings significant experience and a strong reputation. His is very strong in legal strategy and leveraging his firm’s resources to provide the best possible defense. Jeff and partner were successful in steering my case to be dismissed. I would highly recommend Jeff and his law firm for the best possible criminal defense.

I would highly recommend Jeff Greco and his associate Medhi Essmidi. They both handle cases professionally and smoothly. They handled my case with much detail, I was always part of the process, and ontact between us was always maintained making me feel like my case was being taken as a priority. They resolved my case better than I expected. Would use their services again.

Best Team To Have Fighting For You
I cannot express how grateful I am with the work Mr. Greco and his team at Greco Neyland did for me. Their years of experience, first-had knowledge of the prosecution, and contacts they have acquired in NYC was tremendously beneficial in my case. I couldn't have asked for better legal counsel.

Excellet
I just had a consultation with this lawyer regarding a Theft of Service case and he made me feel at ease from this start. You can easily grasp that he is knowledgeable, personable, assertive, and will insure to get the job done no matter what. He wanted to push my court date up in order to make sure that it gets solved and looks good to the magistrate office. I have just started working with him but already know this is a good decision, hoping that my assumption is accurate. I am very young and he made me feel very comfortable with the result he is going to make.

Don’t go to court without Jeff in your corner.
Let me start with saying that I am not from nyc and was facing some pretty serious charges. So like anyone else would. I did search after search for some representation. So many attorneys gave me the same response I felt like i was calling the same place with different phone numbers. Then I lucked out and called Jeff. From the start I thought this guy was the real deal and thankfully I was right. Thanks to him and his team my charges were gone before I even stepped off the plane.

Call Jeff, he will listen to you and fix your problem.
Jeff was straight forward. He explained the case and what to expect. He referred me to an investigator and that investigator's work was essential to building my defense. I was very happy that Jeff and his team were able to get my case dismissed. I recommend Jeff to anyone accused of a crime.

THE BEST LAWYER ON EARTH HONESTLY
EXCELLENCE is the best word to describe Jeffrey.. I was searching for a Lawyer who could understand my case, but instead I found an angel; Jeffrey is not only a lawyer but he's also very human. I consulted a few other good lawyers but i didn't feel any connection with them at all honestly. While the day that I sat down with Jeffrey at his office, was a completely different experience; after he reviewed my case, he asked me if I had any questions and surprisingly i had no questions at all as he answered them all after he reviewed my case. He is just AMAZING! I couldn't be more satisfied. I'm personally a Christian guy and I strongly believe that God put this man on my path as an angel to help me with my case the way he did.

Helped me from beginning to the end.
I reached out to Mr.Greco and his staff when I was being charged with misdemeanor but the chances of it escalating was high. He did not sugar coat anything but was also there whenever I needed his advice or consultation throughout the case. If you are in any trouble, He is a great option and I highly recommened.

Will help you out when in need
Had a case that I thought was going to ruin my life. Spoke to Jeff in person & on the phone multiple times & every time he assures me that it's going to be okay. & he was right, I only got disorderly conduct instead of a criminal record. I can sleep tonight.

Thank You Jeffrey Grerco
My experiance with Greco Neyland was amazing, when speaking with them everything I needed and wanted to know about my case was explained to me. They considered my circumstances as a student and they were able to make me feel like I was a priority. As an outcome they were able to have my case dismissed.

From the moment we called Jeff he was consistently outstanding. In the short time frame I had, he and his associates made sure I had everything needed. They explained the process to me and continuously gave me updates. The attorneys at this firm are compassionate and extremely competent.
