Experienced and Effective Legal Representation
Both Jay K. Goldberg and Gerald Allen served as former First Deputy Bureau Chiefs for the Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office before entering private criminal defense practice in 1996. We have handled complex cases involving bribery of elected officials and public servants on both sides of the courtroom, and use our experience to:
- Advise clients on whether to cooperate with prosecutors or government investigators given the specific circumstances of their cases
- Counsel clients on their options to avoid indictment on charges of bribery, campaign fraud, extortion, embezzlement and other serious “white collar” crimes in grand jury proceedings and complex investigations
- Analyze the facts of the prosecution’s case and build an effective defense strategy to overcome it or mitigate immediate and future consequences
- Minimize short- and long-term damages to our clients’ employment, pension, career and reputation through skilled negotiation or trial representation
Effective Representation in Court and Before the Media
Public corruption and bribery charges often receive extensive media attention.

Our lawyers use the utmost discretion when handling such high profile cases, and we are experienced in handling unwanted media attention. We focus on minimizing the effects of the case on our clients’ reputation and future, not on fulfilling the media’s need for drama.
