His professional highlights include, inter alia:

  • arguing a criminal appeal before the New York Court of Appeals on whether a trial court should have conducted the inquiry mandated by People v. Buford, 69 N.Y.2d 290 (1987)
  • winning trial as lead counsel in obtaining protection under recent amendments to the Loft Law
  • winning hearing as lead counsel on complex evidentiary issue thereby triggering reciprocal attorney's fees under Real Property Law § 234
  • reducing federal criminal defendant's sentencing guideline range by several years by convincing District Court that Puerto Rican Commonwealth Court felony convictions cannot serve as predicate convictions for base offense level purposes as a matter of law
  • winning dismissal of criminal charges against corporation
