Susan Wolfe focuses her practice on white-collar criminal defense at both the trial and appellate levels. She is well-versed in federal securities laws, professional misconduct laws, the federal anti-spam act, and various anti-fraud laws, including mortgage and insurance fraud. She has represented professionals in the real estate, mortgage, securities, and healthcare industries and in the legal profession during all stages of the criminal process, including investigations, bail proceedings, plea negotiations, motions, trial, sentencing, direct appeals, cert petitions, habeas petitions, and collateral licensing matters.
An experienced appellate lawyer, Ms. Wolfe has written and argued numerous appeals. In the last year alone, after filing her clients’ briefs in the Second Circuit, she exacted from the government concessions of error requiring remand for resentencing.
Ms. Wolfe enjoys a robust private practice in Midtown Manhattan.
