Questions to ask your prospective attorney...

“How many criminal cases have you been involved in?”

As a Criminal defense attorney and prosecutor, I have been involved in over 10,000 criminal cases.

“Have you ever taken a case to trial?”

As a defense lawyer and Former prosecutor I have taken numerous cases to trial; from mere traffic offenses to serious felonies.

“Are you thoroughly familiar with the criminal penal law and cpl statutes of New York State?”

My entire legal career has only focused on one aspect of New York State law, that being sections of the penal and criminal code. Having taught other prosecutors throughout the state, areas of the law and how they are properly prosecuted. 

“Who will be handling my case?”

I will be the only one handling your case, it will not be turned over to a less experienced attorney. No legal assistants, no paralegals, no other attorneys; I will personally handle every aspect of your case, no exception. 

“What other areas of the law do you practice?”

My offices sole focus is criminal defense work. When we meet you will not be meeting with a defense/personal injury/Former assistant district attorney who now practices criminal defense law in Cortland, you will be meeting with someone who only concentrates on criminal defense work.
