Founding Attorney
  • Profile
  • Credentials

Anthony Strazza is an experienced trial lawyer who has dedicated his entire career to practicing criminal law. His extensive trial experience includes a wide range of criminal matters ranging from the most serious of felonies to simple misdemeanor offenses, in both state and federal courts throughout New York City and Westchester County. Mr. Strazza takes pride in fighting zealously for his clients and in being there for them during a difficult time in their lives.

Mr. Strazza began his career by serving as an Assistant District Attorney in the Bronx County District Attorney's Office, where he prosecuted hundreds of criminal cases from inception through disposition, in one of the most difficult and demanding jurisdictions in New York State. Mr. Strazza's years of experience as a prosecutor were excellent preparation for his current work as a defense attorney, giving him in-depth knowledge of what the government needs to prove and where weaknesses often lie in the prosecution's case. He has seen that the justice system is not always just to defendants, especially those without a strong advocate in their corner. Mr. Strazza chose to dedicate himself to criminal defense in order to give defendants access to real justice, and to protect the rights of the accused.
