About Christopher

Learn Christopher’s areas of practice.

Christopher M. Gioe, Esq.

I graduated from Thomas M. Cooley Law School in 2005. Based on dedication and exceptional academic performance I graduated law school in two years on an accelerated program. Upon returning to New York, I was appointed by the District Attorney, Thomas J. Spota to a position as an Assistant District Attorney with Suffolk County. There I prosecuted thousands of misdemeanor and felony cases in the District and County Courts.

I spent 7 years with the District Attorney’s Office working hard and developing many valuable skills. I was assigned to several bureaus within the District Attorney’s Office such as the District Court Bureau, the Domestic Violence Bureau, the Case Advisory Bureau and the Major Crimes Bureau. While a productive assistant in these bureaus, I learned the intricacies of the Criminal Justice System including the Penal Law, Criminal Procedure Law, evidence gathering, and trial practice with a concentration on domestic violence, driving while intoxicated, and sex crime cases.

While with the Case Advisory Bureau and Major Crime Bureau, I handled hundreds of major offense cases. Major offenses included assaults, rapes, robberies, burglaries, vehicular crimes including DWI fatalities and DWI’s with serious physical injuries. I received extensive training on forensic analysis of motor vehicle crash scenes, accident reconstruction and advanced trial skills. Additionally, I handled many high profile prosecutions including gun shot cases, violent home invasions and sex cases involving children and adults.

This review is from a person who hired this attorney.

He was very effective and efficient
Chris knows the system and the people involved on all sides and how to deal with them. He is well respected in the criminal justice community. He helped my son out of a very difficult situation. I found him to be an honest broker and not someone who makes promises that he can't keep. Good legal representation doesn't cost... it pays by sparing a defendant many years of Jail time.

Very helpful, knows the law, and was always ready to try my case.
I was charged with a DWI, the cops said I was drunk, but I wasn't. Chris was able to have the charges dismissed after hearings. He was very well versed in the law, made me feel like part of his family. I had access to him 24 hrs a day via phone, text and email.. He always took my calls. I would recommend this attorney to anyone in trouble.

Chris is a great attorney, and became my long lost cousin...
I think Chris G is a great guy, he saved me from going to jail for a long time. Chris diligently worked on my case, visited me in the jail and kept my family and I informed about the status of my case. I never had trouble getting in touch with Chris and neither did my family. Chris told me, his goal was to foster a family atmosphere in his firm for his clients; my family and I now consider him a long lost cousin. Use this attorney, he will not let you down. Jason F.
