What is the definition of good in Utica?

Someone who is wired in to the judges?

Someone who is politically connected and supports both parties during election season?

Someone who is a stand up person who cares about their clients?

Someone who knows how to work the system?

You people kill me with your dumb azz questions?
Obviously you're in a jamb and need help to come on here.

If you're facing misdemeanor/felony charges do your homework in the respective municipality. Look at campaign contribution lists, who sits on republican and democrat committees. Planning boards, attorney for municipality. Your best bet is to always talk to the most politically connected person in that community if you want to know who a "go to" person is. That's how it works in life!

Attornies, like doctors and restaurants, have different specialties. Divorce, property, criminal, estate, elder law, etc. Depending what you need one for dictates who you choose

Les Lewis is the guy you would call to negotiate a plea deal, not the guy you call to try and get your case thrown out or a not guilty verdict.
He won the Randazzo case because of his client's connections and the DA appointing a lame attorney as prosecutor. Pelli is a newbie attorney and Mc Namara knew he'd screw it up, guaranteeing Randazzo walked. didn't hurt that Randazzo was seen having social conversation with the judge before trial.

good lawyer no probaly not, a stand up MAN no way...he tried sueing me about ten years ago for some BS over my dog that was not my fault but the person that was in my yard was at fault, i didnt have money to deal with a lawyer so i went and had a suprise face to face with him and apparently he likes the use of all his limbs and fingers and saw things my way and dropped the case!!! typical punk with a degree and that is all truth people

"Good" defense attorney...That ranks right up there with "almost positive", and "jumbo shrimp". Spare me the same old BS about, "everyone is entitled to representation"; there's a quantum leap from representation to earning big bucks for twisting the law to absolve clients of any personal responsibility. Les Lewis does his job well; I can't think of a worse thing to say about him. No conscience, no remorse, and no moral compass.

I'll never forget his WKTV interview last year when he referred to the young boy in yorkville who brutally killed an infant as a "good kid."

That required no skill and was pure bs. A complete slap in the face.

This guy is an example o someone who has proven time and time that money matters most and no conscience is required.

Koziol never lost a criminal defense trial with a jury. He had an incredible way of putting reasonable doubt in the minds of jurors. I used to love covering his cases. You couldn't help but love his machine gun style rapid fire come backs. The guy was good.
