Best Criminal Defense Lawyers in Buffalo and Western New York

One of Western New York's business publications is publishing its annual "Best Lawyer's" list.  It's a great opportunity for firms to tout some of their attorneys, and the recipients are likely all very worthy of the distinction, but the list is never quite right when it comes to lawyers in the field of Criminal Defense.  The main reason for this is that most of the better Criminal Defense Attorneys in Western New York are either solo practitioners or they are a part of a small firm that does not have a marketing department that pays much attention to these things, and no matter how hard these publications try, there's always a bit of ballot stuffing that happens.

Please feel free to comment and discuss, rip the list apart if you like.
