IVY LEAGUE EDUCATION….
STREET FIGHTING EXPERIENCE
I have been a NY criminal defense attorney, representing individuals and corporations in criminal cases and investigations, since 1987.
I’ve taught and lectured law students and attorneys in trial advocacy and have written articles concerning the practice of criminal law.
And I have also appeared numerous times over the years on Court TV as an analyst for criminal courtroom proceedings.
Here’s a little more information about me.
I was born in the Bronx and raised on Long Island. After graduating cum laude from the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia with a degree in Criminology in 1983, I attended Fordham University School of Law where I graduated in the top 10% of my class in 1986.
During law school, I clerked for the supervising judge of the Criminal Court of the City of New York and also worked at a large NYC law firm.
From 1987-1990, I worked as a senior trial attorney with an organization that provides criminal defense services to indigent persons in the City of New York. As a young lawyer, I gained invaluable trial experience during these early years of my practice.
From 1990 to 1998, I was an associate attorney and then a member of the high-profile criminal defense boutique Litman, Asche & Gioiella. While with the Litman firm, I and my partners at that time successfully represented many individuals in highly publicized matters. Oliver Jovanovic’s case is one of the many highly publicized cases where we were successful.
And then in 1998, I left to open my own criminal defense law office, while assisting the Litman firm as co-counsel on high-profile cases.
I am admitted to practice before the Courts of the State of New York, and the United States District Courts for the Eastern and Southern Districts of New York, as well as the Second Circuit Court of Appeals.
I have also been admitted to appear on a case-by-case basis in other states and federal district courts.
I’m married, have two children and live in Bergen County, New Jersey.
I am a long-time member of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and the New York State Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. I am also a longstanding member of the Association of the Bar of the City of New York where I’ve served on the Criminal Courts Committee and the Judiciary Subcommittee (responsible for the review of the qualifications and fitness of attorneys for state and city judgeships). And I am on the Board of Directors of the New York Criminal Bar Association.
In the past, I’ve also served as an active member of a screening committee to choose judicial candidates for elective office.
If you should ever find yourself the target of a criminal investigation in New York, whether at the state or federal level, I can help.
You can reach me at 212-285-2270. If it’s after-hours, call me at 917-749-4420 and I’ll get right back to you.
