Criminal Law

No matter how major or minor the charge, criminal disputes are a serious matter for the accused. Sinsheimer & Associates understands that being accused of a crime impacts the individual as well as their family, friends, and community at large. Rob has won major criminal cases, including murder cases, in state and federal courts throughout New England and New York.

Criminal Defense

A good Criminal defense starts with compassion. We know how painful it is to be charged with any crime no matter how small. We empathize with not just the accused, but with their friends and loved ones. We have obtained NOT GUILTY verdicts on a range of disputes, including first degree murder, federal money laundering conspiracy, and drunk driving. Our founder Rob Sinsheimer himself has been arrested. When we say we know how painful it is…we mean it! We will try any criminal case, but we know that sometimes the best resolution for the client is the product of a hardball negotiation.

Outcome: NOT GUILTY

Our client was a lifetime scientist – a model citizen with no criminal record.

Unfortunately, he was duped by big time New York City Mafia into moving millions of dollars of worthless, fraudulently obtained private notes. The F.B.I. believed that he developed the scheme and taught it to the Mafiosos. After a six week trial in New York City, he was found not guilty of all charges.
