Drunk Driving & Impaired Driving (DWI/DUI)

Drunk or Impaired Driving is often referred to as the “every man’s crime.”  While very serious and carrying terrifying consequences, drunk driving is a crime for which anyone, from any background, at any time, can get arrested.  For two years, while serving as an Assistant District Attorney, Mr. Amsel almost exclusively prosecuted drunk driving cases.  That experience gives us an inside look at how the government builds and prosecutes drunk driving cases, including the tests and machines they use, and allows us to leverage that experience in your defense.  If you or someone you love has been arrested for drunk driving, don’t wait.  Call us and let us get to work for you.


Domestic Violence

Domestic violence cases are some of the most aggressively prosecuted cases today.  A conviction for a domestic violence offense carries enhanced sentences, the issuance of a long-term order of protection and other far-reaching consequences.  If you have been charged with a Domestic Violence crime, let us leverage our experience and our expertise in your defense.


Violent Crime

Violent crimes, including Murder, Attempted Murder, Assault, Burglary, Robbery and Weapons Possession charges, all come with mandatory minimum prison sentence and are the most serious criminal offenses.  The prosecution often has forensic evidence, DNA and fingerprints, and unlimited resources.  If you or someone you know has been charged with any violent crime, you need an experienced criminal defense attorney to help even the playing field and give you a fighting chance.  Call us and let us start on your defense.

Sex Offenses

Sex offenses are often treated by the criminal justice system as some of the most severe offenses.  Aside for stiff prison sentences, sex offenses often carry serious collateral consequences such as registering as a sex offender.  Yet, sex offenses can be some of the most difficult cases for the government to prove.  If you or someone you love has been charged with a sex offense, you need someone who understands DNA and forensic evidence and how the government builds these cases.  We have that knowledge and experience.  Call us and let us help.


Drug Offenses

With the repeal of the “Rockefeller Drug” laws in recent years, drug offenses are less frequently prosecuted with reduced penalties.  However, the remaining drug cases that are prosecuted are frequently the product of long-term, complex government investigation that involve undercover agents, wiretaps and other electronic surveillance.  We know how to deal with this evidence and how to, despite overwhelming evidence, get our clients the treatment they need rather than prison sentences.  Call us and let us help.


White Collar Offenses, Fraud & Larceny

White collar offenses, including fraud, larceny, bribery, conspiracy, and enterprise corruption can carry serious penalties and are aggressively prosecuted.  Prosecutors often builds these cases using wiretaps and other electronic surveillance techniques as well as cooperating witnesses and undercover agents.
