Dedicated Former Prosecutors Representing the Accused

As former prosecutors, we understand both sides of the criminal courtroom. We know the tactics used by the prosecution and how to fight them. We know how to find weaknesses in the prosecutor’s case.

Jeffery Greco became a criminal justice attorney to help those who are in need of protection. He served as an assistant district attorney in one of the largest counties in the nation before dedicating himself to the defense of people accused of crimes.

Dustan Neyland is also a former assistant district attorney who now represents those who face criminal charges.


Skilled Advocates in Federal, State and Local Courts

Criminal Lawyer NYCMost criminal charges are accusations of violating state law. People accused of these crimes are arraigned in a New York City Criminal Court. If the accusation is a misdemeanor, the case will remain there. Felonies, however, are heard in New York Supreme Court. An assistant district attorney from the borough’s office will prosecute the case. Those offices include the New York County District Attorney for Manhattan and the Kings County District Attorney for Brooklyn.

Federal charges are handled by the United States Attorneys’ Office (USAO). The prosecutors in those cases are Assistant United States Attorneys (AUSA). Manhattan is in the Southern District of New York and Brooklyn is in the Eastern District of New York.

Many differences exist between federal and state cases. Different rules and procedures apply. The agencies investigating the allegations will be different. Different penalties apply.

It is important for your legal representative to have experience in the court where you face charges. At Greco Neyland, PC, we are experienced at representing the accused at all levels — misdemeanors in New York City Criminal Court, felonies in New York Supreme Court and federal charges in U.S. District Court (both the Southern District of New York and the Eastern District of New York).


Fighting DWI Charges in NYC

One of the most common offenses in New York City courts is Driving While Intoxicated (DWI). The charge happens to all sorts of New Yorkers, including those with no prior criminal record. In fact, most drunk driving cases are for a first DWI offense.

Unfortunately, many people think there is nothing they can do about a DWI charge, especially if they consented to a breath or blood test. A DWI charge is a criminal charge, and prosecutors must prove every element beyond a reasonable doubt like any other offense.

Even a chemical test is fair game for being effectively challenged by a skilled DWI attorney. Jeffery Greco has been certified to conduct field sobriety tests. He has received the same training as police officers to recognize drunk or drugged driving. He uses that training to mount an aggressive defense whether you are accused of refusing or submitting to a chemical test of your breath, blood or urine.


The Importance of a Thorough Investigation

In any criminal case, the prosecutor must bring evidence admissible in the court sufficient to prove every element of their case beyond a reasonable doubt. The defense does not have to prove anything unless asserting an affirmative defense.

However, that does not mean that the defense attorney can take it easy. If you have been accused of a crime, your lawyer should be doing everything possible to demonstrate the reasonable doubt in your case. Discovering every possible angle to show reasonable doubt requires a thorough investigation of all the circumstances surrounding your arrest.

A thorough investigation will also uncover missteps by police and other law enforcement. During the investigation, police may have violated your right to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures, mishandled evidence or taken you into custody without sufficient cause.

If any misstep occurred, your attorney can file motions to suppress evidence, motions to exclude prejudicial testimony, and motions to dismiss the criminal charges. Filing and litigating all viable motions is an important part of getting the charges reduced or dismissed before trial.

I'm just going to start this review by saying Jeff Greco is amazing attorney. I have absolutely no complaints about the service he provided me. He was knowledgeable, available at all times and very understanding. I can tell Jeff Greco actually cared about me and the situation I was going through. He seemed well connected and respected in the court system community and got my case dropped from a DWI charge to a violation very swiftly. I was going through financial problems, he not once pressured me about payments. Again not only is he an Amazing attorney but also an AMAZING human being. I would recondmend Mr. Jeff Greco to anyone! -Anthony Vargas

2 years ago I was charged with a crime "cash smuggling " I made the mistake of not reporting the amount of cash I was taking out of the USA . Prior to that I've never committed a crime , not even a traffic ticket on my record. So you can imagine what I felt that day that I was arrested. I've never been in a trial before , I didn't know who to call, I didn't know any lawyers in this type of case. Thank God my sister in law worked in a attorneys office so she ask her boss (attorney) if she knew somebody GOOD In this type of cases. Her boss automatically said he needs somebody with power and with a good record -MR. Jeffery L. Greco (Jeff) . Having Jeff by my side was the Best decision I've made in my life. The level of professionalism and caring of this man is Amazing . I've always heard that lawyers are just interesting in the money , it wasn't the case with "Jeff " he wanted me free, he wanted me to keep my job and enjoyed the freedom with my family . He kept money to the side , he worked with me, with my situation , and he was never intimidated by the Judge. I can not stress enough how he treated me through out the entire case, so much respect . I don't know much lawyers, but He is the one you want to defend you. I didn't step a foot in jail, i was able to keep my job, and now I'm enjoying freedom. Jeff and I still text each other here and there , is like we're family , i consider him my friend. I owed my life to this man, best attorney ever. Jose L Cabrera .

first offense for me and i was super nervous. i called multiple attorneys and the first thing they would ask was if you knew my fee. From the moment i spoke to Jeff Greco he made me feel like we were friends and I made a mistake and not to worry he has my back. Jeff was available at all times and when ever I texted he was prompt, no matter how many questions I had, which happened to be a lot. He got my case dismissed and made sure I was comfortable the whole time I time he was defending me. I would definitely recommend Jeffrey Greco.

I was facing 20 years to life for a federal conspiracy case. Jeff push for a speedy trail the goverment came down to ten years it being is one time deal offer then came down to three years and finally a week before trial try to change my trial date. Jeff wrote a letter apposing this adjourment which the judge apposed. Two weeks later jeff walk me out from jail with time served. Till this day i can text him and he will answer me jeff is like a friend that i owe my life to. From my experience being in federal jail most attorney wont fight for you because the federal govement is unbeatable the only thing he ask for was for the truth which i did tell him and he took it from there . Thank you jeff

The best of the best!!!! I had bad blood with neighbors that lasted many years, which led to me being accused of vandalizing their car. I have no criminal history at all by the way. i found out that i had to turn myself in, so before i did i called up Jeff Greco late at night. he returned my phone call early the next morning and had a meeting. He got in touch with the detective and got me a DAT. I didn't have to step one foot in a jail cell for something i never did. throughout the course of the case his team was excellent. i couldn't of asked for anything more . During the case i was being accused again of vandalizing their car on two other occasions, which led to more adjournments. Anytime i was worried about something that had to do with the case, Jeff was there, he was straight didn't sugar coat anything and was persistent. I finally got an ACD pretty quickly considering the false accusations and I owe it all to Greco and his team of amazing lawyers. He made me feel protected and well defended during a not so wonderful time in my life.
