Experienced Criminal Defense And Civil Rights Representation
At Law Offices of Joel B. Rudin, P.C., we do not hesitate to take on prosecutors and law enforcement officers, frequently handling cases that other New York 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 favorable plea bargain, an acquittal at trial or a reversal of a conviction on appeal.
We represent individuals in state and federal courts throughout 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 2017, we recovered $15.45 million for William Vasquez, and in 2014, we recovered $13 million for Jabbar Collins, the largest such settlements for wrongful conviction ever in New York City.
In 2011, the firm’s principal, Joel B. Rudin, received the New York State Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers’ Justice Thurgood S. Marshall Award for outstanding criminal defense practitioner.
