Criminal Defense Attorney in New York City

My name is Bruce Yerman. I'm a criminal defense lawyer. I'm committed to helping people who've been accused of felony and misdemeanor charges in New York City. For more than 20 years, my clients have placed their trust in me to defend their rights. It's been my privilege to earn that trust.

Take Charge of Your Situation With My Experience on Your Side

If you're accused of a felony or misdemeanor offense, you can't afford to face the charges without an experienced New York City criminal defense lawyer on your side. I not only have a strong background defending clients facing serious allegations, but also am committed to understanding their story. I will "stand in your shoes" so I can see things from your perspective.

Sometimes, the unknown creates so much anxiety. I address your fears by:

  • Explaining how the criminal justice system works
  • Protecting your constitutional rights with an aggressive defense strategy

I focus on understanding the facts of your case, so I can accurately address your legal concerns. I then develop a defense strategy focused on limiting or eliminating the criminal justice system's power to affect your future. Contact my New York City firm to learn how I can help you take charge of your situation with an experienced defense strategy.

Committed to Protecting Your Rights

This is likely a terrible time of uncertainty for you, if you've been accused of committing a serious offense, such as:

  • Drunk driving
  • Drug crimes
  • Sex crimes
  • Domestic violence
  • Shoplifting, robbery or burglary
  • White collar crimes

I understand your future is on the line. Penalties for a conviction can vary, but can result in hefty fines, probation, prison time, suspended license and a criminal record. If you're found guilty, numerous "collateral consequences" can also directly affect your life.

For more than two decades, I've dedicated my career to protecting my clients' constitutional rights. This remains my commitment to you. When you retain me as counsel, I will help you understand the charges against you. Together, we will assess your case. We'll discuss likely scenarios, and I'll provide legal recommendations designed to move you forward to a better future. I'm here to help you make well-informed, intelligent legal decisions.
