My name is Bruce Yerman. I'm a criminal defense lawyer. For 25 years, I've dedicated my career to defending people accused of crimes in all five boroughs of New York City.
No lawyer is more accessible to clients than me.
I take an aggressive approach to defending your rights. Skilled in litigation and plea negotiation, I seek the best possible result for each client.
I love my job. You'll see that as you browse this website. You'll hear it when we speak on the phone. You'll fully appreciate it when we meet in person.
Achieving the best result requires me to be the best lawyer I can be. I will always defend you zealously and intelligently. Sometimes that means fighting very aggressively. Other times it means holding our cards close to my vest.

Anytime you have a question, call me. If I'm unavailable to speak when you call, leave a message. I'll call you back as soon as I can – if not within minutes, then almost certainly the same day.
I graduated cum laude from Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law in 1992. While there, I served as a supervising editor of the Cardozo Law Review. I also attended the Cardozo Criminal Law Clinic. I received a bachelor's degree from Vassar College
I'm licensed to practice law in New York State since 1993. I'm admitted in the United States District Courts for the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York.
