Zachary Reibstein began his career in 2002 as a paralegal with the Queens County District Attorney’s Office. In this position he interviewed crime victims, witnesses and officers to help decide what charges (if any) were to be brought. In late 2003 he began law school in San Diego, California on a full merit scholarship. During this time he earned numerous honors and awards before graduating Magna Cum Laude and in the top 10% of his class. His law school years also included clerkships with the San Diego City Attorney’s Office, the Office of the San Diego Public Defender and an international law firm focused on securities fraud litigation.
After graduation, Mr. Reibstein moved back to New York and became an Assistant District Attorney in Queens. He began in the Criminal Court Bureau and prosecuted all types of misdemeanors including assault, theft, drunk driving and child endangerment. He was soon promoted to a position with the Career Criminals and Major Case Bureau, where he worked closely with the NYPD on hundreds of investigations including attempted murder, kidnapping, robbery, burglary, and domestic violence.
Mr. Reibstein left the DA’s Office and opened his own practice in 2009, drawing on the skills and experience he gained as a prosecutor to help those who have been accused of crimes or otherwise aggrieved. Since entering private practice Mr. Reibstein has won numerous felony trials and recovered over $1,000,000 in judgments for civil clients. He was named a “Top 40 Under 40″ attorney by the American Society of Legal Advocates for both 2014 and 2015; and the National Trial Lawyers included him on their list of 2014′s Top 100 Trial Lawyers. He also currently serves as Vice President of the Assistant District Attorney's Association of Queens County.

Dedicated, Passionate, Responsible. These are words that come to mind when I describe Mr. Reibstein as an attorney. He is always dedicated to his clients and the legal issues he represents them on. His passion is clearly apparent every time he is on the record with a judge or arguing with his adversary. And Mr. Reibstein is responsible in his practice of law and his dealings with others. In total, Mr. Reibsein is a first class attorney whom I would trust even with my most serious of cases.

Anyone looking for a lawyer has to try and find the advocate who can bring their case to the best possible conclusion. Zachary is that advocate because he has the experience to know where the State's case is weak, the raw talent to make the most of those weaknesses at a trial, and knows exactly how to present all of this to prosecutors in New York. That is why he is so successful in getting the best results for his clients.
