Zealously Representing You

A Strategic Approach From A Proven Criminal Defense Attorney

Attorney Chorny brings a breadth of experience and knowledge to each case she represents. As a former prosecutor for the Nassau County District Attorney’s Office, she worked in various bureaus, including intakes, trials and grand juries. She knows the tactics that prosecutors use, how they think and what they will likely do. This insight is crucial in developing a custom, strategic defense for each client she represents. No case or client is the same.

Driven to get results, the firm’s attorney takes an aggressive approach. She isn’t afraid to go to court, and has recently brought three back-to-back murder trials to verdict in New York – a rare feat for a criminal defense attorney. She will diligently investigate every aspect of your case to determine viable solutions that aim to accomplish your personal and legal goals.

Whether you are facing a federal or state crime, she has the experience and knowledge to effectively represent you. Samantha understands the laws involving conspiracy charges, illegal possession of weapons charges, drug crimes, narcotics, sex crimes, driving while intoxicated (DWI)/driving under the influence (DUI) offenses, domestic violence charges and other serious crimes.

Criminal law is her passion, and she solely focuses her practice on it. Her priority is protecting your rights and freedom.
