Protecting You and Your Rights in Criminal Investigations and Prosecutions

Matthew H. Feinberg brings over 40 years of experience protecting the rights of the accused both at the investigative stage, trial and appeal in both state and federal courts.  In many cases, he has succeeded in preventing charges altogether.  In a host of other cases, he has gotten charges reduced or dismissed after formal proceedings have begun.  More than half of the cases he has tried to a judge or jury have resulted in not guilty verdicts or conviction of a lesser offense.  Attorney Feinberg is aggressive in the pursuit of justice and questions every aspect of the government’s case, working closely with forensic experts and private investigators whether the case is a white-collar offense such as tax or bank fraud, public corruption, or Internet offenses, as well as drug, firearms or other violent offenses.  Mr. Feinberg has distinguished himself for his intelligence, creativity, experience and legal know-how.
