Manhattan Fraud Defense Lawyer
In federal court, conspiracy can be charged whenever a prosecutor alleges that two or more people worked together to do something that would amount to a federal offense. Even if the alleged conspirators never actually carried out their plan, conspiracy can be charged if one of them does any act designed to further the conspiracy.
Even in cases where only one individual is arrested and prosecuted, the Government can charge a conspiracy (18 U.S.C. 371), and never have to prove who the other conspirators actually were.
If you are under investigation or have already been charged with conspiracy, you need a lawyer who understands the complexities of New York conspiracy law. At the Brill Legal Group, we vigorously defend clients against conspiracy charges and the underlying criminal charges. We have a track record of success in these cases, and we are ready to put our experience and reputation to work for you.

Providing Skilled, Strategic Criminal Defense
Our New York conspiracy attorneys know what it takes to be successful in conspiracy cases. We can help you understand what penalties you are facing, and we will work diligently to have your case dismissed or your charges reduced. In New York, there are many degrees of conspiracy charges under Penal Law article 105, each with its own punishment. The possibilities range from a Class B misdemeanor and three months in jail, to a Class A felony, which could mean life in prison with no possibility of parole.
Effective criminal defense representation can mean the difference between serving a lengthy prison term and perhaps avoiding jail altogether. We approach each conspiracy case aggressively from the start, uncovering facts and developing strategies for our clients. We are committed to preserving the rights and freedoms of those who face allegations of criminal activity.
Defending the Full Range of Conspiracy Cases
Most people are surprised to learn that conspiracy charges carry significantly higher penalties than the underlying charges. For example, in many drug cases there are charges for distribution of narcotics (under 21 U.S.C 841) and separate charges for conspiracy to distribute narcotics. The conspiracy charge may carry penalties that are twice as severe as the actual distribution charge. We handle a wide variety of charges, including conspiracy to commit:
- Mail and wire fraud
- Securities fraud
When you hire our law firm, we will immediately get to work constructing the best possible defense, tailored to the facts of your specific situation. We understand the serious nature of these charges, and we do everything we can to vindicate your rights.
