Criminal Law

At Abrams Fensterman, we zealously advocate for each of our clients in the pursuit of optimum results that are completely satisfactory to our client’s needs. Our attorneys have a vast array of experience in dealing with law enforcement agencies, and as former prosecutors in state and federal offices, our attorneys have intimate knowledge of procedure and process of our adversaries.

Providing personalized, individual attention to each of our clients is paramount and we will fight for you through the entire process. Often times we represent clients who are being investigated by law enforcement and quite often, we can provide assistance in the prevention of arrest and prosecution, avoiding potentially damaging media attention.

Abrams Fensterman’s Criminal Defense Law attorneys offer unique prosecutorial experience having served as:

  • Assistant Attorney General in the New York State Attorney General’s Office
  • Special Assistant United States Attorney in the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York
  • Special Prosecutor in Westchester County
  • Assistant District Attorney in New York County

We represent many clients associated with prevention of criminal liability in the area of compliance and our criminal defense attorneys advise clients on developing and implementing internal compliance programs designed to avoid problems before they result in formal law enforcement investigations.
