Areas of Practice

Criminal Defense

Having been both a defense attorney and a prosecutor, including three successful first degree murder trials, Mr. Kaminsky has seen both sides of the coin. He knows the thought process behind criminal prosecutions and investigations. He has handled hundreds of criminal hearings. He will provide an honest and forthright opinion on your case and devise the best strategy possible. In addition, Mr. Kaminsky holds a bachelor’s of science in biology, and has significant experience understanding issues surrounding DNA and other scientific evidence in the courtroom.

One of Mr. Kaminsky's successful murder prosecutions was a 1976 cold case.  Few attorneys have dealt with the complex issues surrounding the loss of evidence, faded memories, deceased witnesses, and dated biological evidence encountered in a cold case homicide.  Mr. Kaminsky was able to work closely with witnesses, explain the true nature of the DNA evidence involved in the case, and avoid the pitfalls of missing evidence to present a successful case.  Whether it is for the prosecution or the defense, Kaminsky's experience and trial skill is of the highest level.

"The key comes from understanding people, and understanding how evidence presents to a jury.  Witness statements on paper are one thing, but being able to relay information from a live witness to the jury is quite another."  Dan Kaminsky.
