Profiles of the Lawyers at the Law Offices of Joel B. Rudin

New York City Criminal Defense Lawyers

At the Law Offices of Joel B. Rudin, we are not afraid to take on prosecutors and law enforcement officers, and frequently handle cases that other attorneys will not touch. We carefully choose the clients we represent, so that we can dedicate our full efforts and attention to obtaining a dismissal of the charges against them, a lenient plea bargain, an acquittal at trial, or a reversal of a conviction on appeal.

We represent individuals in state and federal courts in New York, and will represent you at any stage of a criminal prosecution, whether you are merely under investigation, have been arrested and charged, face sentencing, need representation on appeal, or have lost your appeal and seek post-conviction relief.

We are leaders in obtaining monetary compensation for individuals who have been wrongly arrested, prosecuted, or convicted. In 2014, we recovered $13 million, the largest such recovery for wrongful conviction ever in New York City.  The firm's principal, Joel B. Rudin, in 2011, received the New York State Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers' Justice Thurgood S. Marshall Award for Outstanding Criminal Defense Practitioner.
