New York Attorneys

Being accused of a criminal offense is often a life-changing event. Suddenly, your future looks grim as you are thrust into a system that you may know little or nothing about – a system that treats you with indifference or hostility. It is vitally important to have a voice in that system, one that is determined and strong and working for what is best for you. You need a qualified criminal defense attorney, one who knows the terrain and how to get optimum results.

If you are facing the criminal justice system based on any kind of alleged offense in New York City, you can turn to Hamilton Clarke, LLP.

Cases We Handle

We provide zealous legal representation for charges ranging from white collar crimes matters involving tax evasion, money laundering, racketeering, and internal investigations to more serious offenses based on drug conspiracy, sex crimes, DUI, and homicide. As trial-tested litigators, we have been successful in building effective defense strategies based on our own extensive investigation into the charges and diligent legal analysis. We have successfully tried cases in court before judges and juries or negotiated favorable outcomes outside the courtroom.

Our founding partners, Phillip C. Hamilton and Lance A. Clarke, hail from two of the nation’s premier criminal defense practices: The Bronx Defenders and The Legal Aid Society of New York. While there, they learned how to successfully navigate the courtroom, the criminal justice system, and the institutional relationships that are key to success. After founding separate litigation boutiques representing diverse individuals from union members to CEOs and many high-profile clients, our stellar team decided to form Hamilton Clarke, LLP. The goal was to create a firm that combines exceptional quality with client-centered and results-oriented service.
