Marc Fernich


Marc Fernich occupies a unique niche in the crowded criminal defense market. Armed with superior analytic and expressive skills—verbal and written—he concentrates on complex appeals and motions at the federal and state levels, and also has a growing trial practice. Educated at the University of Pennsylvania and Northwestern University School of Law, Fernich has appeared in many high-profile cases during his 20-year career, representing a diverse roster of clients ranging from notorious gangsters to sophisticated businesspeople. Named a 2009-10 New York-Metro Super Lawyer and a preeminent attorney by the prestigious Martindale-Hubbell organization, Fernich has created landmark legal precedents across the country, recently briefing and arguing a major racketeering case before the U.S. Supreme Court. A pugnacious cross-examiner and a prolific author, Fernich frequently writes and lectures about criminal law, publishing widely and serving as an Adjunct Associate Professor at Brooklyn Law School, where he teaches appellate advocacy. In perhaps the ultimate compliment, Fernich is regularly tapped by colleagues to advise and assist in the most challenging matters, acting as counsel to the defense bar at large. A consummate professional, he is truly a lawyer’s lawyer.
