Criminal Defense & Legal Support When You Are In Trouble

Have You Been Arrested? I Can Help.

Being arrested is an overwhelming experience. You are probably confused and may not know what to do. I understand how that feels firsthand, thanks to a serious false accusation that occurred when I was young. You don't have to face these charges alone. Having an experienced defense attorney when fighting your criminal charges is imperative to your outcome.

Over the past 25 years, I’ve experienced the ins and outs of both sides of the courtroom, working as both a prosecutor and now as a defense attorney, where I’ve practiced for the majority of my career. That means you’ll be getting the best possible representation, no matter what’s happened to you.

Call me to discuss your situation.

Nassau County Burglary
Not long ago I represented a 26-year-old maintenance worker who made a good living and provided financial support to two children. He’d never been in any sort of trouble before, but one night he and two friends (who’d both been arrested multiple times before) decided to break into a deli. They set off an alarm, […]

Queens County Grand Larceny
A worried father called me one day to say he’d just received a call from a police detective, who informed him that his son needed to go to the precinct. He asked the police if he needed a lawyer, but they told him it “was unnecessary” and “would just confuse things.” When he asked why […]
