    Attorney Profile

    Arthur Trakas founded his firm in 1983 and practices an aggressive brand of litigation in the areas of personal injury, criminal and family/matrimonial law. Real estate and estate law is also an important focal point of the practice. As an attorney for over 30 years I  practice by a lifelong committment  to hard work and preparedness in finding solutions and getting results. Our personal injury litigation includes accidents involving cars, mass transit,  pedestrians and labor law/construction claims. Our criminal defense practice involves defense of all types of criminal cases in the federal and state Supreme Court  including complex multi-defendant federal cases. Our matrimonial practice both prosecutes and defends divorce actions from onset to resolution whether by trial or agreement. You will be comforted by  the personal attention. We service New York as well as out-of-state federal jurisdictions. We are dedicated to excellence, and we are serious about getting results.
