Law Offices of Jeffrey Lichtman

New York Criminal Defense Attorneys

Experience. Tenacity. Results.

At the toughest time of your life, you need the toughest New York criminal defense attorneys. The Law Offices of Jeffrey Lichtman is a full service New York criminal defense firm which has handled – and won – some of the largest and most difficult criminal cases in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and all over the country. Recognized by peers, judges and the media as tenacious advocates for those charged with serious state and federal crimes, we understand that being charged with a crime is perhaps the single most terrifying experience anyone can have and that you need a fighter in your corner to get through it. Through exhaustive pretrial preparation we have managed to get dozens of cases dismissed – including such serious federal cases as RICO violations – and wrecked other prosecutions through meticulous investigations which have revealed major credibility problems with the prosecution’s witnesses. Unlike many lawyers you can find on the internet spouting their own false praise, our New York criminal defense lawyers have a track record of success second to none in the criminal law community in New York City – you can look it up.

Our Practice Areas

Very few law firms in New York can honestly state that their practice areas encompass all aspects of criminal defense work, state and federal, trials, sentencing and appeals. Most firms have a criminal law practice area – but are also involved in civil litigation which can last for years and require significant attention from members of the firm. At the Law Offices of Jeffrey Lichtman, we have decades of experience in all facets of the criminal justice system – and just practice in criminal law and criminal law-related civil areas.

A 29 Year Record of Success.

Experience. Tenacity. Results.

The Law Offices of Jeffrey Lichtman is headed by New York trial attorney Jeffrey Lichtman who is nationally known for his successful advocacy on behalf of high profile clients – and for those charged in the most difficult of criminal cases. With over 29 years of practice on some of the country’s largest stages, Mr. Lichtman has developed a cross-examination style described in the media as a “relentless pounding” in which witnesses were “put through the blender and shredded.” We have handled major federal cases including trials in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsylvania and all over the country; New York state cases in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Nassau/Suffolk Counties, Queens, the Bronx, Staten Island, Albany and Westchester.

Recent cases successfully defended include tax fraud, extortion, structuring, assault, bribery, kidnapping, narcotics offenses, murder and conspiracy to murder, firearms offenses, money laundering, Medicaid fraud, securities fraud, and DWI/DUI. In addition, we have successfully handled federal, state and IRS tax investigations and have managed to end them before they become criminal cases, preserving your freedom and career.

A Trial Record Second to None.

Our trial practice has been very successful – and not just in the run of the mill cases: we represented John Gotti, Jr. in a nearly two month federal trial which ended with the dismissal of three murder conspiracy charges, an acquittal on a $25 million securities fraud charge and a deadlocked jury on all remaining counts. This case and many more we have had are seemingly long shots – but not to us. If you hire a law firm which puts the time in, any case is winnable.

Motion and Appellate Practice.

Our motion and appellate practice has also borne fruit: recently in Newark, New Jersey, a client had his 27 year sentence for sexual assault vacated – and walked out of prison a free man – after we successfully argued that he was denied constitutionally effective assistance of trial counsel. Additionally, in late 2015 we successfully moved to dismiss a $6 million Medicaid fraud case in Albany prior to trial; the client had been facing 25 years in prison. We have won dozens of suppression motions which have severely compromised the government’s cases against our clients, leading to very favorable plea offers.
