Let me help you like I have helped thousands just like you. If you are like most people facing criminal charges, this may be your first time facing the New York criminal justice system. The process is confusing and you probably can't help but worry about your future. Will you go to jail? What if your employer finds out? What will a conviction on your record do to your future?

I Have Dedicated My Legal Career To Helping People Just Like You

I am Brooklyn criminal defense attorney Neil S. Ruskin. I won't insult you by telling you not to worry. It's very human to worry about the future. But here is something that I'm sure will help you feel a little better: I CAN and WILL help you.

You Need A Criminal Defense Expert! Tough! Strong! Smart! Aggressive! And On Your Side!

For more than 40 years, I have represented people facing every type of criminal charge, ranging from DUI and driver's license suspension to domestic violence, felony grand larceny and murder. In every case, there has always been a successful strategy for helping people face the charges and always a better outcome than they might face by just pleading guilty with another lawyer. I fight hard to win to get the best results for my clients.

How am I different from other New York criminal defense lawyers?
Since beginning practice in 1973, I have committed myself to making sure the New York City criminal justice system knows that there are people's lives behind the charges, not just case files to prosecute. Call me any time of the day or night for the legal help you need!

If you are under investigation for a crime or have already been charged, do not wait to see what the prosecutor will do next. Call me any time of the day or night to arrange a meeting.

Please remember do not make any statements or admissions to police officers, law enforcement, or district attorneys. Call Neil Ruskin if you are under investigation, about to get arrested, or have been arrested. REMEMBER remain silent and say nothing. Tell them you want to speak to your lawyer NEIL S RUSKIN. You are constitutionally entitled to speak to your lawyer. Once you tell them you want to speak to a lawyer they must stop questioning you - that is the law. Also, remember to sign nothing, don't consent to anything and don't waive your rights.

I offer aggressive, effective criminal defense for all misdemeanor and felony offenses, including:

  • DUI defense: Yes, there are alternatives to accepting a guilty plea agreement and facing a driver's license suspension. I know what programs are available for first-time offenders and repeat offenders to help you avoid serious consequences.
  • Drug crimes: Whether you have been charged with illegal possession of street drugs or prescription medication, I offer the help you need. Having a chemical dependency problem or drug addiction doesn't make you a criminal. I will prepare your case aggressively and pursue every available strategy to help you get into the recovery program you need and stay out of jail.
  • Theft and property crimes: If you are facing false accusations, you can trust me to fight aggressively to preserve your innocence in court. In many cases, people charged with theft or possession of stolen property have a chemical addiction they need to support. I will make sure the human story is included in your defense and work to negotiate an alternative to a conviction.
  • Assault, violent crimes and gun charges: Whether it involves charges of domestic violence, assault or homicide, if you were caught at the wrong place at the wrong time or need help with controlling violence, I am ready to assist you and do everything possible to keep you out of jail.
  • Sex offenses: Nothing will destroy your future and ruin your reputation like a conviction for a sex offense, particularly if the accusations include a minor. I have helped many people get charges dismissed or reduced and have won many cases.
