2009 - Leave to the Court of Appeals Granted

Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome.

A Firm Attorney requested leave in a felony sexual abuse case to appeal to the highest court in New York State: the Court of Appeals. The Court of Appeals granted leave. This is a notable accomplishment because very few criminal leave applications are granted by the judges of the Court of Appeals. The percentage of leave grants has hovered around 2% in the last few years.
