Jeffrey Lichtman is a prominent New York City criminal defense attorney who has successfully handled criminal trials and appeals on some of the country’s largest stages. His clients include those charged in the federal and state systems with white collar and non-white collar offenses. For 25 years, Mr. Lichtman's practice style has been marked by exhaustive pretrial preparation and smothering pressure inside the courtroom. His cross-examinations, in fact, have been described in the media as a "relentless pounding" in which witnesses were "put through the blender and shredded." Mr. Lichtman's appellate practice has also had great success, winning freedom for clients sentenced to lengthy prison terms.
A 1990 graduate of Duke University School of Law, Mr. Lichtman holds an AV Preeminent* peer review rating through Martindale-Hubbell and is one of just a handful of Manhattan criminal defense attorneys to be recognized in the Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers. He is also a frequent lecturer at law schools throughout the country and an active member of several professional organizations, including the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and the New York State Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. In 2015, Mr. Lichtman's office began representing individuals on Civil Rights/police misconduct issues as well as on sexual harassment and discrimination claims.
Mr. Lichtman has recently been featured in People and Newsweek magazines and was profiled in the New York Daily News and in The New York Times as part of the "Public Lives" series. Mr. Lichtman can also be heard as a guest host on WABC Talk Radio, Fox News Radio and AM 970 The Answer in New York City.
