What We Do
We represent indigent clients who have been convicted of crimes. Most of our cases are assigned by the Appellate Division, Second Department, and are direct appeals following a conviction after a trial or a plea. We also represent clients in the New York Court of Appeals and in several types of post-conviction proceedings in trial court.
Our clients have been convicted of a range of crimes from serious felonies such as murder or rape, to less serious misdemeanors such as drug possession or trespass. Their sentences of imprisonment range from under a year to life. Regardless of the crime involved, we represent each individual to the fullest extent of our abilities and do our best to obtain a positive outcome.
Our advocacy on behalf of our clients also influences criminal law throughout New York State.
