A Former Prosecutor On Your Side

At The Law Firm of Michael S. Berardino, formerly Mangialardi & Berardino, I believe in defending our clients' freedom through a forthright assertion of their rights before the court. With extensive experience in litigation and negotiation, my objective in every case is to obtain the best possible outcome for my clients. I represent clients throughout the New York City metropolitan area who face all types of criminal charges including DUI/DWI, property crimes, violent crimes, drug possession charges, sexual offenses, and white-collar crimes.

An Attorney Who Knows How The Other Side Thinks

As a former prosecutor in the Office of the Bronx County District Attorney, I prosecuted every type of crime. I learned how prosecutors analyze cases, and how they prepare and pursue criminal charges. I learned how they shore up the strengths and minimize the weaknesses of evidence. I learned how to challenge procedural motions and how to persuade a jury.

As an accomplished criminal defense lawyer, I put my knowledge gained as a prosecutor to work for my clients. I know how to effectively challenge the prosecution by attacking the weaknesses of their case. I know the rules of evidence and how to contest the introduction of improperly obtained evidence or that which may be prejudicial to my client. Lastly, I know how to make effective and winning arguments before the court.

I know the system and the law

If you face DWI or drug possession charges, or a white collar or Internet crime, I will defend you. You can expect my complete devotion and dedication to your cause. I believe in aggressively defending my clients to protect their rights and their freedom.

If you have been charged with a DWI, weapons charges, or any other crime in the New York City area, contact The Law Firm of Michael S. Berardino, formerly Mangialardi & Berardino, as soon as possible, locally at 212-983-5677 or 914-618-4167, or Toll Free at 877-776-5584. I believe in defending your rights and your freedom.
