Criminal Defense

The New York Law Office of Ronald L. Kuby aggressively represents clients, in both federal and state courts, in a broad array of criminal defense matters, ranging from misdemeanors to crimes of violence, including murder, manslaughter, mass-sexual abuse, felony assault, and robbery charges; to white collar crimes, such as money laundering and RICO allegations; to criminal conspiracies, narcotics, weapons, and frauds; and international terrorism charges.

The firm is experienced in every phase of the criminal defense process. We are practiced trial and appellate lawyers, and have litigated numerous state post-trial motions (under C.P.L. Sections 330 and 440) and federal habeas corpus cases. We also represent clients who have been subpoenaed or are under investigation by law enforcement. We frequently attempt to resolve cases before they are indicted, limiting our clients’ exposure to criminal penalties.

The Law Office of Ronald L. Kuby has successfully defended hundreds of clients facing serious criminal charges. Read about our notable outcomes in criminal defense.
