How We Can Help

Our lawyers can aggressively represent you in cases involving:

  • Criminal Defense. Our founding partners’ experience as former New York prosecutors allows us to successfully represent our clients charged with many types of misdemeanor and felony offenses at the state level, including arson, conspiracy, drug crimes, drunk driving, embezzlement, fraud, sex crimes, theft crimes, and traffic violations.
  • Federal Criminal Defense. We also frequently defend clients facing federal charges, particularly white-collar offenses. Our team is prepared to take on cases involving bank fraud, credit card fraud, mortgage fraud, securities fraud, and more.
  • Title IX. Title IX is a federal law that forbids discrimination on the basis of sex in educational institutions that receive any amount of federal funding – which covers most schools in the United States. Our firm represents students, educators, administrators, employees, and others facing Title IX complaints. 
  • Employment Law. We help New York employees hold employers accountable for various types of misconduct, including age discrimination, racial discrimination, religious discrimination, sexual orientation discrimination, gender discrimination, disability discrimination, sexual harassment, retaliation, wrongful termination, FLSA violations, and more. Our firm also helps employees negotiate employment agreements, non-compete agreements, non-solicitation agreements, confidentiality agreements, and other contracts.
  • Personal Injury. When you suffer injuries due to another party’s recklessness or negligence, you deserve to recover compensation. Our firm handles personal injury claims involving car accidents, construction accidents, premises liability, product liability, brain injuries, and truck accidents. We also take on medical malpractice cases, including those involving birth injuries, and workers’ compensation claims.
  • Estate Planning. Our firm offers a wide array of estate planning services, including assistance with the creation and updating of wills, trusts, and powers of attorney documents. We are well-versed in elder law and can assist with all related planning endeavors. Our lawyers can also help you efficiently navigate matters of probate and estate administration.

Client Testimonials

Our Clients Rave About Their Results
  • They were always available quickly, to address my concerns. Having dealt with some law firms before, I really appreciated this.

    “Steven Raiser's law firm handled my case with excellence throughout the process. I had a SBA EIDL loan that got transferred to the Department of Treasury unexpectedly, and had a 30% penalty added to the amount due, and due very quickly, which was very stressful. After talking with Steven Raiser, and working with Harry Gill, who was absolutely brilliant in working with me and preparing the case, they were able to recall the case to the SBA. They were always available quickly, to address my concerns. Having dealt with some law firms before, I really appreciated this.
