With four offices, our firm serves clients throughout the New York area in Suffolk County, Nassau County, Queens, Brooklyn, the Bronx and Manhattan.

We understand how the justice systems of Long Island and New York City operate. From our years of working in criminal defense, we have come to know the area’s regulators, investigators, police, prosecutors and judges. Our firm has developed a reputation for trustworthiness and respect that prioritizes the best interests of our clients. The attorneys at our firm understand what is at stake for our clients, and we have the proven capacity to shield those accused from the worst consequences of the criminal justice system.

Our primary criminal defense attorney, Peter Brill, is a former assistant district attorney who knows the law inside and out. His understanding of how prosecutors think and operate gives him a distinct advantage when entering the courtroom or sitting down at the bargaining table. He is supported by the Brill Legal Group’s team of highly experienced criminal law attorneys who have tried hundreds of cases. These accomplished lawyers bring a collective wealth of knowledge and experience that is second to none on Long Island or the Five Boroughs.

A History of Providing Exceptional Legal Service


Clients who are facing criminal investigation or prosecution need a team that is sharp, responsive and able to utilize all available means to preserve their freedom. This is an optional slideshow section. It can display practice areas or any other topic on pages of your choice.


At the Brill Legal Group, we have extensive experience defending those accused of domestic violence or served with restraining orders. We are committed to helping our clients stay out of jail and minimizing other criminal penalties.


We have wide-ranging experience handling financial cases before the SEC, IRS, Department of Justice, and many other agencies. Time and again, we have successfully defended clients against charges of embezzlement, fraud, corruption, racketeering, conspiracy, and bribery.


The extreme contempt directed toward sex crimes today can actually undermine due process. Judges and prosecutors can give too much credence to a supposed victim's claims, and even some defense attorneys give barely adequate representation to defendants. They may advise accepting the first plea bargain offered out of eagerness to collect their fee and be rid of the case. At the Brill Legal Group, our experience guides our defense strategies, and our commitment to justice means we patiently see each case through to its optimal resolution.


We represent professionals across many industries in disciplinary and licensing hearings and investigations, with our without accompanying criminal charges. We can help defend your job, your license, and your livelihood. We also represent students facing expulsion and suspension.
