Advocates For Criminal Defense

The New York Criminal Bar Association was organized more than 40 years ago by our first President, Hon. Robert L. Cohen, to provide a much needed tool to protect and preserve the rights of individuals accused of crimes and to serve as a unifying force for those persons dedicated to this pursuit. Our membership has grown from an initial group of 10 to our present membership of over 500 active members. Our prestigious group reads as a who's who of professionalism and dedication to their profession as do our past presidents.

The group of past presidents has included individuals such as Larry Goldman, Jerry Lefcourt, Austin Campriello, Harvey Fischbein and Anthony Ricco, as well as the current generation of leaders beginning with Michael Bachrach and Stacey Richman - all of whom are very well known and recognized for their commitment and dedication to the rights of their clients as well as to their fellow criminal defense attorneys.
