 Attorney at Law 

Criminal Defense & Family Law Attorney

My name is Dennis Dowd, I am a criminal defense lawyer, family law attorney, personal injury lawyer, medical malpractice attorney and immigration law attorney serving Nassau and Suffolk counties, as well as all 5 NYC boroughs. I am a former prosecutor with the Suffolk County district attorney’s office. I have built my private practice around one single goal; protecting the rights of my clients as I fight on their behalf for a successful result.My philosophy and approach to helping clients is about representing people and not simply handling “cases” by moving them through the system. I work closely with each client on an individual basis as I fight for them and pursue the best course of action for their individual situation.Whether you have a criminal matter or need help with some type of family transition I can help.

Being a Former Assistant District Attorney I have experience and knowledge that others just don’t have. I have paid my dues on both sides of the law, as a prosecutor and as a defense attorney. I provide a level of expertise that truly benefits my clients. Being a highly experienced trial attorney, I know the law and how to use it to get the very best possible outcome for my clients .

Traffic tickets are misdemeanors and being so are actually criminal offenses, so if ignored can have consequences that can dramatically affect your daily life.

Criminal LawCriminal LawAs a former criminal prosecutor I have a distinct advantage when representing clients that other defense lawyers can’t match. I know the system and how the prosecution team thinks and works because I was one of them for a long time. Today I use that knowledge and experience to help.
