The Bulldog You Want In Your Corner

After years of battling prosecutors in court, I knew that in the long run, to beat them, I had to become one of them. And that's what I did.

Chad chose to pursue a career as a criminal defense attorney when he was a freshman in college. After law school, Chad thrived defending indigent clients in Brooklyn for one of the best Public Defender Offices in the Country. But Chad knew that to become the elite defender he is today, he would have to experience criminal law as a prosecutor. Chad says that "Deciding to work for the District Attorney's Office was a worthwhile sacrifice. After years of battling them in court I knew that in the long run, to beat them, I had to become one of them. And that's what I did." Chad's' experience prosecuting cases from the perspective of a defense attorney, helped Chad become a prominent trial lawyer, skilled litigator, and an unmatched criminal defense attorney.

Chad has got soul, and his soul is deep.The fear of facing double digit upstate time disappeared whenever we spoke. I wasn't just a client to him. He went through the case with me, like he was the one facing time. We went through it together. But man, seeing this guy in court is something else. When he walks into the courtroom the atmosphere changes. It's like time stops. That's soul. But when the judge and prosecutor were speaking he just stood there silent. His face was neutral. The judge asked Chad if there was anything he wanted to add and that's when the real magic happened. It was like he ripped out a tommy gun from his briefcase. No one saw it coming and the power of his words won the case. Yeah, my man has soul."

My brother in law lied to the police. He said that I threatened him when I was walking with my 4 year old son. Chad had enormous patience with me. He explained the process and the impacts of my decisions in a way that was easy to understand.But I wouldn't take any plea. So we went to trial. Chad cornered my brother in law to admit he lied! It was amazing. I was acquitted thanks to Chad.


I don't know where to begin. Chad fought harder for me than any other lawyer I've had. When I told him the police were making it up he went out right away to get evidence. He got video showing that the police were lying. He always responded immediately to my calls, and met with me whenever. Sometimes I would just drop in. Chad always greeted me with a smile. When the prosecutors still didn't drop the case he fought even harder. During the trial, Chad destroyed the cop on cross the judge told the prosecutor if they didn't dismiss the case it would not end up well. So They did. Years later, when Chad wasn't even a public defender anymore, he testified for me in federal court. He even had the transcripts from our case. That's how much he cares. His talents as a trial lawyer are equal to his compassion. He is one of a kind.

Chad believed in me from the moment we met. He won me over quickly by listening intently to everything I had to say and following through. When he investigated my case, Chad found video that ended up resulting in the case being dismissed.
