Drug Crimes

I provide drug crimes defense counsel in all five boroughs in New York City, as well as Nassau County, Suffolk County and communities throughout New York.

I am Neil S. Ruskin, an experienced defense attorney with a reputation for success. I represent people charged with a full range of drug offenses in Brooklyn and throughout the five boroughs of New York.

I prepare your case aggressively and pursue every available defense to maximize your chances of success. I explore questions like:

  • Did the law enforcement officers in your case conduct themselves properly, or did they obtain evidence through an illegal search and seizure?
  • Was the offense caused by addiction and, if so, is treatment a better option than incarceration?
  • Is there sufficient evidence for the prosecutors to prove that you committed the offense?

In many cases, we can reach an agreement with the prosecutor to minimize your sentence or keep you out of jail completely. I fight to win ALL the time. Trial is always an option when the circumstances are right. I never accept failure! I know how to negotiate from a position of strength.

Prescription Drug Offenses

While street drugs may immediately spring to mind during a discussion of drug charges, prescription drug offenses are increasingly being prosecuted in New York and across the country. I have successfully defended people against prescription drug charges involving hydrocodone (Vicodin), Percocet, oxycodone and all others.

These cases are complex because they involve issues like addiction to drugs that are often prescribed legally. If you are facing charges surrounding prescription drug abuse, it is essential to speak with an experienced lawyer.
