Preparing Strong Defenses on Behalf of Our Clients Our first effort is to prevent charges from being filed. By providing favorable information regarding our clients and the situation being investigated, we are frequently able to favorably influence a prosecutor's charging decisions. If a client is charged, we work tirelessly and aggressively on his or her defense. Our office vigorously prepares a client's case for a jury trial while simultaneously attempting to negotiate a settlement most favorable to our client. We will investigate government witnesses, challenge the government's allegations, work to exclude potentially damaging evidence, build affirmative defenses, and deal with the media when necessary. The office also has access to the best investigative and expert resources necessary to aggressively challenge the actions and inactions of law enforcement, prosecutorial and judicial powers.

Above all, we work with our clients to achieve the most favorable outcome possible.

Attorney John M. Runfola Mr. Runfola has a deep commitment to justice and is keenly aware of the daunting prospect an individual or corporation faces when squaring off against the government with its tremendous reservoirs of resources and power. He comes from a tradition of the strongest legal advocacy and ethics, having seen his father, Joseph P. Runfola Sr., work as a prominent criminal defense lawyer and a groundbreaking president of the Erie County Bar Association in New York state.

Our cases are first and foremost about people. Mr. Runfola provides responsive, personalized service in each case he handles. Our goal is to inform our clients of their options and to position them as favorably as possible, even pre-indictment or arrest. We want them to be an integral part of their cases, and make sure their needs and concerns are addressed at every stage of the process.
