Besides the borough of Manhattan, New York attorneys have to be well versed in all aspects of criminal defense and prosecution phases as they applied to the legal system. Because in this particular area of the country, attorneys often practice criminal defense law for awhile before switching gears to become Prosecutors and sometimes the opposite is true.
Besides being busy handling criminal matters for defendants and processing cases against them as prosecutors; New York attorneys have a unique role in the legal profession. New York is thought of as the best place to establish humanitarian and community grassroots organizations. As such, New York attorneys are often asked to prepare press releases, appear on television programs to discuss current cases of national significance and they make announcements to mass markets.
New York attorneys are often asked to prepare reports on local activities to keep the government abreast on matters of public interest.
