New York City Criminal Lawyer

The Linehan Law Firm defends New York from government and law enforcement actions. Jeffrey Linehan is a former Manhattan prosecutor with over 15 years of experience in criminal law. After prosecuting financial fraud, conspiracy, and narcotics crimes at the New York County District Attorney’s Office, the Office of the Special Narcotics Prosecutor, and the New York State Attorney General’s Office, he started this firm to give New Yorkers the best defense against these kinds of allegations.

To defend against criminal charges, you’ll need a strong advocate with significant trial experience to conduct tough negotiations and counsel you on the best course of action. The Linehan Law Firm represents New York City criminal defendants regularly in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens court houses, in both Criminal and Supreme Court, and is admitted before the U.S. Southern and Eastern District Courts of New York. Mr. Linehan is well-versed in the New York State Penal Law, Criminal Procedure Law, and Title 18 of the United States Code. In his prior experience as a prosecutor, Mr. Linehan took many felony cases to trial, including several prominent cases involving physicians who unlawfully issued opioid prescriptions to both patients who overdosed and narcotics traffickers. Mr. Linehan also served as ethics counsel with the New York State Joint Commission on Public Ethics, enforcing financial transparency and conflict-of-interest rules among the state’s public officials.

New York City Professional Discipline Lawyer

With significant experience conducting fraud, oversight, and negligence investigations in the medical field and in government ethics, the firm also specializes in representing professionals caught up in disciplinary and licensing inquests. If you’re a medical professional, you know scrutiny of prescribing, billing, and treatment has only increased. The Linehan Law Firm has assisted physicians, social workers, nurses and other licensed professionals safeguard their livelihoods and reputations. As a prosecutor, Mr. Linehan developed a practice area in allegations of medical fraud, often referring cases to the Office of Professional Discipline (“OPD”) and the Office of Professional Medical Conduct (“OPMC”) in which doctors, nurses, and pharmacists faced serious accusations. Under the Public Health Law Article and the Education Law, licensed clinicians have due process rights whenever accusations of misconduct are made, including the right to have an attorney present for any questioning or hearing. Even a simple request made by state authorities for patient files or treatment notes could lead to a costly and public disciplinary proceeding. Hiring a disciplinary attorney creates a shield between your practice and oversight bodies, and often makes the difference between a minor penalty and those as serious as suspension or revocation.

New York City Regulatory Enforcement Lawyer

Thanks to his background with financial fraud and white-collar criminal investigations, Mr. Linehan can assist broker-traders and business entities dealing in securities and soliciting investments. As an Assistant Attorney General, Mr. Linehan investigated financial frauds, bringing charges against corporate start-ups, foreign exchange commodity traders, and Cryptocurrency token sellers. This industry comes with a multitude of rules and restrictions set by authorities like the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (“CFTC”), and the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (“FINRA”). Additionally, in New York, the General Business Law’s “Martin Act” carries civil and criminal penalties for fraud related to the offering and sale of securities. If one of these agencies accuses you or your business of misconduct, the penalties can be severe and long-lasting. Failure to respond to these investigations can lead to heavy fines or a bar from the securities industry entirely. Regulators can seek injunctions, which may prohibit certain practices, require audits of accounting, or set up supervision of your business. Financial fines or orders to return profits (disgorgement) are also common. Regulators can even suspend you from serving as a corporate officer for a set number of years.

If you’ve been charged with a crime, face an enforcement action, or fear discipline related to your professional practice, you need to get ahead of the allegations and find the best lawyer for your situation. The Linehan Law Firm is ready to work for you.
