High-Profile Criminal Defense in New York

In high-profile criminal cases, choosing a defense lawyer who understands how to efficiently navigate the criminal law system and minimize negative publicity and media coverage is essential.

Handling Sensitive Cases With Discretion

I am Wilson LaFaurie, a successful New York criminal defense attorney who represents high-profile clients throughout the state. Media-savvy and tenaciously dedicated to my clients' best interests, I serve the needs of celebrities, professional athletes, entertainers, physicians, business executives, politicians and other prominent individuals who are facing state or federal criminal charges for a broad spectrum of complex criminal matters. These include:

  • White collar crimes: All too often, high-asset individuals become involved in white collar crime investigations as a result of their complex financial operations.
  • Fraud: Tax fraud and other related investigations are all too common for high-asset individuals, who may unknowingly fail to uphold their obligations.
  • DUI/DWI: Drunk driving charges often receive extensive media coverage when applied to celebrities and other high-profile individuals.
  • Sex crimes: The mere accusation of a sex crime can severely damage a person's reputation.
  • Domestic violence: Domestic violence cases are complex and acrimonious, and often receive a great deal of media attention.
  • Drug offenses: A conviction on drug charges can have a serious effect on a person's career and reputation. I can help you prevent these consequences.
  • Murder: If you have been accused of homicide, it is extremely important that you work with an experienced criminal defense attorney.

Respected Reputation as a Criminal Trial Lawyer

Clients count on my law firm for adept, aggressive advocacy coupled with strategic legal knowledge and discretion. With 17 years of experience, I fully understand the unique considerations that attend high-profile cases, and I am committed to protecting both my clients' personal and professional interests.

I began my career as a prosecutor in Brooklyn and Kings County, and tried hundreds of criminal cases, placing my trial experience in the top 5 percent of criminal defense lawyers in this area. However, my reputation for taking cases to trial also means that the opposition takes me seriously, allowing me to negotiate many favorable outcomes outside of the public courtroom.

Many overbooked lawyers talk to clients solely via videoconferencing or phone, and numerous others pass cases off to junior associates, paralegals or other "substitute" attorneys. I do not. I personally handle every case from beginning to end and meet with clients face to face.
