About Peter Brill

About me


Peter E. Brill has extensive criminal trial experience in state and federal court, arbitration and administrative proceedings. He has won cases for his clients in practically every county in the New York metropolitan area. A former Assistant District Attorney, he now focuses on criminal defense of both civilians and law enforcement personnel, representing clients charged with a variety of misdemeanors and felonies. He graduated cum laude from Brown University and received his law degree from Georgetown University Law Center. He is also an Adjunct Professor at the New York Institute of Technology.


As of 2015, he is now one of only two attorneys in all of New York State--and the only attorney in the New York metropolitan area--to be certified by the National Board of Trial Advocacy in Criminal Law.

The National Board of Trial Advocacy is not affiliated with any governmental authority. Though certification is not a requirement for the practice of law in the State of New York and does not necessarily indicate greater competence than other attorneys experienced in this field of law. 

Peter Brill's background and education in the law far exceed the average criminal defense attorney, and his experience in the courtroom, at both the State and Federal level, is significant. In addition to Mr. Brill, our firm also has several other highly experienced criminal defense attorneys. Together, these accomplished lawyers provide a wealth of criminal defense knowledge and experience that is second to none in the New York metropolitan area, and without peer on Long Island.

Among the many criminal charges for which we can provide smart, aggressive criminal defense include:

  • DWI, DUI, and DWAI
  • Domestic and family violence
  • Sex crimes
  • Murder, assault, and other serious felonies
  • White collar crimes
  • Internet crimes and cyber crime
  • Juvenile crimes


No matter what kind of trouble you are in, we are here to help. We don't judge our clients by the type of crime they are charged with. After all, everyone is entitled to a zealous legal defense. When you choose the Brill Legal Group, you can rest assured that your defense will be of the highest quality.
