Joseph Potashnik and Associates PC is a criminal defense law firm based in NYC that specializes in multiple law fields and has a record of over 1,000 efficiently defended cases. These fall into various categories – federal and state offenses, government investigations and audits. Navigate through the list of our practice areas to find out more information about each.

Federal Crimes

Federal-level charges are especially challenging to tackle, since the U.S. government possesses near to unlimited resources when it comes to such criminal cases and thus has all the chances to convict the person on trial. In such case, penalties that a defendant might face are extremely severe, some totaling decades of imprisonment and hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines. Therefore, it is paramount to hire a competent federal crime lawyer who may be able to either dismiss the case or help minimize penalties.

Since the beginning of their law practice, Joseph Potashnik and his colleagues have handled over 1,000 federal cases, and this includes approximately 100 jury trials. We provide legal representation to both private and business clients investigated and charged with various crimes:

If you’re investigated or charged with a state-level offense in New York or New Jersey, don’t hesitate to contact criminal defense attorneys at our NYC law firm to acquire a consultation for your case.
