Peter J. Schaffer has been a practicing criminal trial lawyer in New York City for over twenty-six years. Over the course of just the last year he has taken on some of the toughest cases in the criminal justice system including: international drug trafficking, multi-million dollar cyber crime conspiracy, money laundering, revenge murder, sex assault and health care fraud. At the same time, he has continued to represent numerous individuals charged with lesser crimes and offenses including summons matters, DWI, domestic violence, weapon possession, narcotics and marijuana crimes.
Mr. Schaffer's practice reflects his philosophy as a criminal defense lawyer - no case is too big or too small. He knows that any arrest or investigation of a person is important to that client and he strives to provide excellent representation to all of his clients.
In addition to his extensive background in State and Federal criminal defense, Mr. Schaffer is a former Assistant Corporation Counsel and has tried numerous civil rights jury trials involving false arrest, malicious prosecution, excessive force and police misconduct in the State and United States District Courts. Over the last year, Mr. Schaffer and lawyers working with him have recovered tens of thousands of dollars for victims of false arrest and police misconduct in New York City. He examines every arrest of every client to determine if the police lacked probable cause to arrest his client in the first place. Where those arrests are DP'd (Decline to Prosecute), or resolved in his client's favor by way of dismissal or a verdict of not guilty after trial, Peter J. Schaffer does not hesitate to file suit against the Police, the City or anyone else responsible for the wrong caused to his clients.
If you have been arrested and are facing criminal charges you deserve the best representation available. If you have been the victim of a false arrest or police misconduct, you deserve someone who will fight for you.
