Accusations of sex crimes can be damaging on a personal and professional level. Whether you are accused of internet child pornography crimes or need an attorney for a Sex Offender Registration Act (SORA) hearing, we’ll advocate for your interests every step of the way.

We can provide effective defense for petit larceny, grand larceny, and many other financial crimes, including shoplifting, embezzlement, extortion, etc.

Crimes involving violence such as assault, attempted murder, burglary, and weapons possession typically carry hefty penalties. Our team has successfully defended many clients accused of serious crimes and have prevailed time and again.

  • VEHICULAR CRIMES AND SEIZURES:

As one of NYC’s most notable criminal defense firms, we have achieved many astounding victories defending DWIs, reckless driving, and other car-related charges. We have beaten cases where our clients have blown more than 2x the legal limit, and have gotten not-guilty verdicts when our clients have had prior DWIs.

  • NARCOTICS CASES:

Whether you’ve been charged with being the kingpin in a drug ring, or are being accused of simple possession, we can launch a vigorous defense in your favor. Our team has been responsible for impressive victories at both federal and state levels. For example, one of our clients faced 40 years in prison — and instead got six months in a light correctional program without cooperating with the government. If you’re suspected of being involved in narcotics activities, or have been confronted, arrested, indicted, or even convicted, contact us, and find out how we can help.

We are well-versed in the federal criminal statutes and equipped to fight against federal prosecutors. From investigation by federal agencies such as the FBI, DEA or another agency, all the way to trial in federal court, we stand by you and defend your rights every step of the way.
