NYC Criminal Attorney

When you’re accused of a crime in New York City you want experienced attorneys who know their way around the landscape. Working with attorneys who are familiar with local judges, prosecutors, and other major players can offer your case subtle advantages that newer attorneys may not be able to provide.

In addition, here at Greco Neyland we’ve got experience on both sides of the table. Jeffery Greco is a former assistant district attorney and narcotics prosecutor, which means he’s intimately familiar with the way prosecutors think. Combining this experience with Dustin Neyland’s passion for the right of the accused has given our firm a very high success rate.

Of course, our success rate depends, in part, on the ability of our clients to make the right decisions in the crucial first few hours of a case.

What should I do if I’m accused of a crime in New York City?

Call our offices without saying a word to investigators. Remaining silent is your legal right. You should, in fact, be in touch with a lawyer the moment you suspect you may be under investigation. Police officers make mistakes, cut corners, and sometimes arrest the wrong person, which means even being innocent may not save you if they believe you’ve committed a crime.

You should call an attorney no matter how minor the crime seems. You should call an attorney even if the police tell you your crime is perfectly understandable. You should call an attorney no matter what. Doing so will give us a stronger platform from which to try to secure your freedom and good name.

What’s the difference between a misdemeanor and a felony?

A misdemeanor is any crime with a minimum sentence of less than one year. These crimes are typically “small” infractions. However, even a misdemeanor charge can have a profound effect on your life. It’s a good idea to treat a misdemeanor case with every bit as much gravity and concern as you’d pour out on a felony one.

Can I really go to jail for a misdemeanor?

Yes, some misdemeanors are punishable with jail time. In addition, you should be concerned with the long-term consequences of even the smallest crimes. A conviction could mean losing your job, your reputation, and your ability to get hired again in the future. If you’re divorced, it could even impact your ability to see your kids.

Thus, it is wise to mount the best defense you can mount no matter what.


The police say I’m not being charged with anything yet. Should I talk to them?

Police officers don’t always let you know when you’re one of their prime suspects. They may lead you to believe you’re a witness clear up until the moment they strike and charge you with a crime. It’s admirable to want to help and do your civic duty, but talking to the police is dangerous.

You should have an attorney with you to help you determine what is and is not safe for you to share, and to ensure your rights are protected throughout the entire process.

When’s the right time to contact a criminal attorney?

The right time to contact a criminal attorney is the moment you the police wish to talk to you about any crime, the moment you suspect you’re being investigated, or the first moment you can after getting arrested. The longer you wait the more damage you could do to your case.

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
