I have been a criminal and family lawyer for 34 years and have practiced in Buffalo, Manhattan, Niagara Falls, and many other cities in New York State. I was one of the first lawyers in the state chosen by a panel of judges to handle capital murder cases and have handled some of the biggest criminal cases in New York State. We are one of the very few law offices that are statewide so that no matter where you have a case we will be able to represent you. I am a CLE criminal law instructor and have taught criminal law to the judges, prosecutors, and lawyers in New York for the last 20 years. I am one of the very few lawyers to have achieved a 10.0 "superb" rating from the lawyer rating agency AVVO, and have the excellent client and peer reviews on Avvo, Yelp, Google, and Yahoo. My offices in Buffalo, Brooklyn, and Manhattan are open 24 hours a day, every day of the year including all holidays and a lawyer is available to offer free consultations 24 hours a day as opposed to just having an answering machine. My fees are almost always a flat rate so that you know the total fee up front and can compare them to other lawyers. I offer easy payment plans and my fees start at just $500. I answer my cell phone 24 hours a day to answer your questions and give you a free legal consultation or you can meet with me for free to discuss your case.
