Principles & Values

Principles and values are at the heart of every law firm because what is meaningful to the lawyers that represent you ultimately will have an effect on you as a client. Our belief in equality and justice are founding principles that guide us in thoroughly representing you with respect and dignity.

Who We are & How We Work

The Kushner Law Group is a team of like-minded attorneys who believe in the equality and protected rights embodied in the United States Constitution, as applied to all. With this said, we adhere to our founding principles that through equality, we may find justice and through these beliefs we are able to represent our clients, protecting their rights to the best of our abilities. Every client like every case is different and has their-own special needs. We take these needs and all other factors of the attorney-client relationship into consideration when representing our clients and defending their rights. We believe that few things are truly finished forms and that we as individual lawyers and as an individual law firm can always strive to do better and evolve to meet the changing needs of our clients as we defend their constitutional rights.

Our History

“I began my career as a public defender representing those who could not afford private representation. I worked in one of the poorest counties in New York State and met and interacted with some of the most desperate and overlooked defendants. What I learned from that experience would be the bedrock of my legal career. Through compassion, diligence, hard work, zealous advocacy, and understanding – I was able to make a profound difference in the lives of these individuals who were my clients. Most of the clients had been in and out of the system and were often ignored and disregarded. Their prior attorneys had not been able to help them get the results they needed or craft deals with prosecutors that were to their benefit and this often resulted in the clients re-offending. I was able to succeed where others had failed because I took the time to listen, took the time to understand, and took the time to communicate with the district attorney’s office and the judges to obtain the right results.

Often times lawyers begin in criminal defense to gain trial experience that they wish to transfer into other areas of the law that may be more lucrative to them. When it came time to ‘hang my shingle’ there was no other practice area that I would consider entering rather than criminal defense. I sought to bring my client-centered approach to a private client practice. I began the Kushner Law Group under these founding principals and I hope to personally ensure that each of our clients feels understood, listened to, and zealously advocated for. We obtain exceptional results for exceptional clients and I wouldn’t have it any other way.”
