The National Trial Lawyers In the Office of Scott Bookstein, PLLC clients matter!

Since every client and every case is unique, everyone is provided with personalized service. I am a former NYC supervising prosecutor, having worked for the District Attorney’s Office for the better part of a decade. I incorporate almost 35 years of experience as a criminal practitioner to ensure that my clients and all their rights are protected. These are not just words, I have a proven record as a successful trial attorney, winning verdicts on cases ranging routine misdemeanors to murder.

Not every case goes to trial, so when not advocating for my clients before a Judge or jury, I engage in strategic negotiations where I use my knowledge and expertise to identify and exploit weaknesses in the prosecution’s case. This approach has resulted in countless favorable resolutions. Having a criminal case hanging over one’s head is stressful, that’s why I make sure that both my client and his/her family are well informed as to the court process, case developments and available options. Schedule a consultation to discuss your case. Most clients tell me that they learned more about their case during one meeting with me than months with their prior attorney.
