Your Success Is The Cornerstone Of My Success
With more than 35 years of experience, I have established a record of successfully protecting my client’s rights in both state and federal courts. I have secured positive resolutions in many high profile cases. My career began with a case that would conclude after a two-year federal trial in the acquittal of 20 alleged members of the “Lucchese Family.” This case was so notorious, it inspired the movie “Find Me Guilty” and the books “The Boys From New Jersey” (hardcover) and “Mafia Wiseguys” (paperback).
Other notable cases include the reversed murder conviction of Lawrence Simmons after Mr. Simons unjustly spent 23 years in prison. I have also had victories in the New Jersey Supreme Court, including State of New Jersey vs. Kuropchak and the civil case of Lyons v. Township of Wayne. These, and many other cases I have been involved with, have garnered national attention and have been featured on Court TV. I have successfully represented clients in appeals ranging from convictions of drunk driving and armed robbery to murder and sexual assault. My efforts have overturned life sentences and allowed wrongfully convicted individuals to return to their families after decades of unjust imprisonment.
