Prosecutor's Experience with a Defense Attorney's Compassion

As a criminal lawyer, Melanie M. Marmer earned her stripes investigating and prosecuting cases as a Brooklyn District Attorney. Her cases ranged from simple misdemeanors to high-profile felonies, including organized crime, civil forfeitures resulting from drug seizures, and DWI and DWAI arrests. Her work on the infamous "Bensonhurst" murder case was profoundly instructive with regard to how public perception can impact a criminal trial. Now as a defense lawyer, she brings her rich experience to bear in protecting her clients' rights and freedom.

Personal Attention & Commitment to Client Satisfaction

Ms. Marmer is personally invested in the success and satisfaction of each of her clients. She answers phone calls day and night, quickly responding to questions and providing prompt updates on all case developments. While her workday rarely ends at 5 o'clock, she is proud to earn her clients' trust by being at once relatable and tirelessly hardworking.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:
Comfort Level - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
Credentials - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
Cost - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
City - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?
