Criminal Defense | Williamsville, Cheektowaga & Buffalo, New York

If you are being investigated or charged with a crime, then you need an experienced, aggressive attorney to protect your rights and reputation. I am a seasoned trial attorney who has served as lead counsel in numerous jury and bench trials. I have successfully represented my clients in hundreds of criminal, administrative and regulatory matters. I will use these skills and my experience to help secure a favorable outcome for you.

Former Federal Prosecutor

Formulating an effective defense begins with knowing the government’s playbook. For eight years, I directed investigations into complex crimes as a felony prosecutor. I taught law enforcement agents their tactics, techniques and procedures. I presented charges to grand juries. I tried cases before judges and juries. I know where the police cut corners. I quickly can identify the weaknesses in your case. My experience as a former prosecutor lends you an advantage from the beginning.

Young, Hungry And Aggressive

Prosecutors and law enforcement officers are relentless in their pursuit of you. If you want to prevail over the government, then you need an attorney who will work harder and faster than the government. Employing innovation, superior research and compelling, passionate advocacy, I will work harder than the government to secure a favorable outcome in your case.

Skilled Sentencing Mitigation Attorney

Since over 95% of cases get resolved through a plea, many defense victories occur at sentencing. If a plea makes the most sense for you, then you need an attorney who is able to present a convincing sentencing case that proves why you are a person worthy of leniency. My sentencing cases discuss where you grew up, your family background, your education, your work experience and your support network. My cases demonstrate how you intend to rehabilitate yourself and the skills and support you have to do that successfully. Finally, I prepare you to speak about these things convincingly to the Judge.
