Former Queens County Prosecutor
A criminal record can ruin your life. It can severely impact your career, your family situation, your reputation and your freedom. Even certain violations can impact your future. Because of the devastating effects of criminal charges, you need a lawyer who will fight for your rights and who knows how to minimize these consequences and gets the results for you that few other attorneys are capable of obtaining due to my tenacity
I am Queens criminal defense attorney Kevin P. O'Donnell and my law firm focuses exclusively on handling criminal defense matters in state and federal court. With diverse clients from the five boroughs of New York, Nassau, Suffolk and Westchester Counties as well as people from throughout the world who are charged with a crime in New York, my Queens law firm works with individuals from all walks of life.
Growing up in the Bronx myself, I worked hard to become an attorney, and now I practice criminal defense because I want to help others pursue justice. I also want to preserve the integrity of the system by exposing mistakes, especially when someone's civil rights have been violated.

Our First Meeting and My Approach
At the Law Office of Kevin P. O'Donnell, I do something you do not often see at the first client meeting. After providing prospective clients with a case assessment, I encourage them to speak with other attorneys. I believe you need to be confident in the lawyer who defends you in a criminal matter because the outcome can change your life. Most attorneys will not go that extra mile for you to secure the best possible outcome for you. I will. In fact, I always tell my clients that they must be patient because it is better to get a good result than a fast result. I send my prospective clients away knowing they will come back to my law firm because I believe I offer a combination of experience, assertiveness and confidence that is unmatched.
As a result of my style, record and meticulous handling of cases, I am frequently referred cases by those in the law enforcement community and judicial system
Experienced Attorney Handling High-Profile Cases
As one of the leading attorneys in my field, I have handled a number of high-profile cases, which require great attention to detail. During the course of those cases, I have appeared on a number of shows and was quoted in nationally recognized periodicals, including:
- The Today Show
- Good Morning America
- Anderson Cooper
- Greta Van Sustern
- Larry King
- Dan Abrams
- Catherine Crier Live
- Jamie Floyd's The Best Defense

Using My Background for Your Benefit
As a former prosecutor and now a seasoned criminal defense lawyer, I understand the legal issues in your case and how the prosecution will view it. My knowledge and experience puts me in the perfect position to build a strong legal defense, strengthen any weakness in your case and exploit any holes in the prosecutor's case.
When prosecutors encounter an aggressive attorney like me, they may assess the case differently because they know I will pursue the best option, even if it means litigating your matter in full. I am known for not backing down and for not being afraid to take a case to trial.
I will work tirelessly to have your charges dismissed or its consequences minimized. I will fight to the end, and I know from experience that the first offer is very rarely the best or final offer that is in the best interest of my clients. I urge my clients to have patience. I constantly remind them of one of the things we discuss during the initial consultation: that it is better to get a good result than a fast result.
