Samuel Gregory: Experienced, Renowned NYC Criminal Defense Lawyer
  • Highest Possible Rating for a Lawyer from Martindale-Hubbell
  • Super Lawyer Rated Every Year Since 2011

Mountain climbers want to climb mountains. Defense lawyers want to win cases. A dream for a mountain climber is to climb the highest mountains in all seven continents. A New York City defense attorney would relish getting acquittals in all five boroughs; Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island and the Bronx. However, to win acquittals in all five boroughs and in both the Southern and the Eastern District would mean that this lawyer had literally done it all.

In November of 2021, Sam Gregory got an acquittal on a public corruption case in the SDNY. That acquittal was the last mountain, and perhaps the most challenging, he had to climb in order to reach the pinnacle of his profession. Sam Gregory, now has gotten acquittals in every single borough in New York City and in both the Southern District and the Eastern Districts of New York. Sam may be the only attorney alive to hold the distinction of winning cases in every borough and both federal courts in New York City. He is not done yet. He has some more big acquittals coming before he hangs up the gloves.
