A CHAMPION OF YOUR RIGHTS. FIGHTING FOR YOUR FUTURE. CALL NOW 845-243-2532

I began my own practice and serve clients in the areas of personal injury and criminal defense. Though these are my focus, I am ready to help my neighbors any way I can. Since 2009, my law office has been a legal resource for people in the mid-Hudson Valley Region. For every client I have, I wish I could guarantee the results. The reality is that there are too many variables and unknowns at the outset of a case to guarantee a particular outcome. What I do guarantee is that I will always work my hardest for each client. I do not rest until I have received the best possible result. At my office I do not view my clients simply as a file number, I view each person as an individual. I understand the potential consequences injury cases and criminal charges can have on a person’s life.

From injury cases, minor violations and misdemeanors to class A felonies, I handle all types of cases to protect the rights and get justice for the people in my community. My clients are paramount. My practice is built on the cornerstone of integrity. As I continue to serve New York State with effective legal services, I am honored to forge lasting relationships along the way.

Great and personable lawyer with results
Without divulging too many details of my case but Raji Zeidan took a scary and grim situation and provided a solution. Raji walked me through his process and what my situation was. He was available when I needed him and always gave me a reality of my situation and the outcome was the best case scenario only made possible by him.

Personal attention and care
Raji was immediately accessible and very realistic to deal with. When discussing my case, he made no grandiose promises. He actually leveled with me and discussed each realistic outcome. Thru every step of our proceedings, Raji made sure to be in quick response and contact with every question I had and made me feel like he was genuinely invested in my case. As it turns out, his efforts were not in vain and my case went as we had hoped. A class act.

GOES ABOVE AND BEYOND FOR HIS CLIENTS!
I hired Raji and i am so glad that i did. He truly goes above and beyond for his clients. Raji could have closed my case sooner and been done with it but instead he went the extra mile to give me a disposition that was in my best interest so i still would have a chance at great schools. He is honest and completely himself all the time, he also is very trust worthy,you can be confident whatever you guys share is just between you two. Not just looking to get paid, he is worth every dollar. I would recommend him to anyone looking to handle their case the right way. 5 star service!!
