Not Guilty




Our client, a small-business owner and Staten Island resident was charged with a $600,000 Conspiracy and Mail Fraud in federal court by the United States Attorney, Southern District of New York, along with his partner. The main witness against him was his ex-girlfriend, who had come up with the idea of starting the business venture to begin with. After a two-week trial, both he and his partner were found Not Guilty of all charges at trial.

Additionally, we defend clients in the following areas:

When most people hear the word “espionage,” they think about James Bond, spies, national security issues and agents of one government selling national security information to another country. Corporate espionage can be thought of as the private business equivalent. It is essentially one company trying to gain an advantage by obtaining the business secrets of another company.

Legislators have closed loopholes that allowed multiple mortgages on the same property or conspiracies to artificially inflate market values to “flip” properties for a profit. But with tighter rules and scrutiny, many innocent people have become the target of a fraud probe. The Brill Legal Group has represented legitimate speculators who are buying foreclosed or short sale homes, and ordinary people who are purchasing a home not to flip it but to live there or to provide space for family.

A wide variety of criminal activities, such as prostitution, drug trafficking and robbery, can be involved in a RICO case. The complexity of these charges demands the attention of an attorney who understands the nature of RICO violations. At the Brill Legal Group, we have successfully defended many clients facing these charges.

The Brill Legal Group, with offices in Manhattan’s Financial District and on Long Island, has successfully defended stockbrokers, brokerage executives, fund managers and investment advisors accused of defrauding investors or breach of fiduciary duty.

State and federal law enforcement agencies are devoting more resources to combating identity theft and credit card fraud. They have the cooperation of banks and credit card companies that lose millions upon millions each year covering fraudulent purchases. If you were caught up in the dragnet, the Brill Legal Group in Manhattan’s Financial District provides a sophisticated defense to counter the government’s case against you.

Credit card fraud can include the use of forged cards, the physical theft of a card, the theft of data, the use of that data to make online purchases, and the unauthorized use of information to obtain new credit. The charges associated with these offenses include credit card theft, possession of stolen credit cards, unlawful use of a credit card, forgery, and identity theft.

Both the U.S. Attorney’s office and the New York Attorney General’s office are cracking down on doctors and pharmacists, while local law enforcement goes after street dealers and users. Any such crackdown always catches innocent people or results in low-level participants being overcharged. Brill Legal Group, P.C., in New York represents anyone charged with prescription drug fraud or felony possession of a controlled substance.
