Attorney Schuster’s path towards the top of the New York Criminal Defense bar began with his undergraduate education as both premed and prelaw student at John Hopkins University, where he graduated with the highest academic honor the University bestows. He then obtained his Juris Doctorate from Georgetown University Law Center at which time he also interned at the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Washington DC. After his immediate admission to the New York bar in 1995, he served as an Assistant District Attorney where he was placed in charge of more than eight municipal and local courts. He was also responsible for appeals on numerous murder cases, presenting cases to grand jury and for trying dozens of criminal and quasi-criminal cases to verdict. This breadth and intensity of experience earned him advanced prosecutorial insight that he leveraged and developed into powerful, in-depth defense strategies for thousands of clients in the years to come. After entering private practice in 1997 and founding his criminal defense law firm in 1998, Attorney Schuster has been honing his skills and experience, handling thousands of cases to their successful conclusion before State and Federal Courts throughout the Westchester County and New York Region.
