Internet & Cyber Crime Defense
Both sides of the law are still learning how to deal with the constantly evolving territory of computer crime. Prosecutors are easily misled by investigators and police officers, and defense attorneys often have little to no experience with the types of cases they take.
We have extensive experience innovating defense strategies for Internet sex crimes, identity theft, computer fraud, copyright infringement (piracy), and more.
New York Internet & Cyber Crime Defense Attorneys
At the Brill Legal Group, we focus our practice exclusively on representing clients facing criminal charges in Nassau County, Suffolk County and throughout New York City. When facing criminal accusations for these crimes, it is essential to have an experienced defense lawyer on your side defending your rights.
While these types of crimes are no longer new to the legal space, the technology powering the Web and the possibilities it opens for criminals are constantly changing. And that’s exactly the problem because most prosecutors have no idea what they are dealing with and are easily misled by overzealous Internet crusaders and ill-informed investigators and police officers.

We investigate for evidence of viruses, “bots” or illegal usage of our client’s wireless network.

The many Internet-related crimes and computer crimes against which we can provide intelligent, aggressive defense include:
As a former Nassau County Assistant District Attorney, criminal defense lawyer Peter Brill understands how prosecutors and law enforcement operate. They often start their investigations from a narrow and overzealous viewpoint, making assumptions that may not be supported by evidence and ignoring other potential suspects. We understand how to undermine and dismantle a poorly structured prosecution by a careful examination of the charges you are facing.
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.
Police and prosecutors are aggressively investigating attempts to gather personal data through fake emails and websites. Hacking in particular is a charge sometimes levied against individuals who are not attempting to do anyone any harm.
Phishing is an attempt to acquire information from someone, such as their website login credentials or credit card information, by deceptive means. It is a form of identity theft or attempted identity theft.
The Internet has fundamentally changed the lives of many people in the world, and in some ways it has changed the nature of criminality as well. It is easier than ever to find information about one another and to use that information to harm others. The law continues to evolve in an attempt to keep pace with changing technology and to protect the public.
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.
The very mention of the words “child pornography” and your name in the same sentence — especially if that sentence is in a newspaper or on a website — can have a devastating impact on your life, career, and personal relationships. During plea negotiations or at trial, the legal experts at the Brill Legal Group work diligently to ensure that the end result is an acquittal, dismissal, or charge of possession, rather than selling, distributing, receiving and/or transporting child pornography. This can make all the difference in helping a defendant live a life outside of prison.
