Federal Criminal Defense

Ms. DeBlasio is an experienced trial lawyer who vigorously and tirelessly defends individuals at all stages of the federal criminal process, from indictment to trial, guilty plea to sentencing, and pre-trial cooperation to post-conviction sentence reduction. Her recent cases have involved charges of terrorism, murder, RICO violations, international and maritime drug-trafficking, conspiracy to distribute narcotics, money-laundering, bribery, and fraud.

Ms. DeBlasio began her career even before attending law school, working part-time for her father, a New York trial attorney legendary in both the criminal and personal injury fields who was named in the first edition of Best Lawyers in America and in every annual edition thereafter, up to his retirement in 2006. Immediately after receiving her law degree in 1991 and a Master’s degree in 1992, Ms. DeBlasio clerked for a federal trial judge and, after a subsequent federal appellate clerkship, she went on to try criminal cases as a federal prosecutor at two United States Attorney’s Offices. Since her return to the private sector, she has taken both civil and criminal cases to trial in federal court.


Ms. DeBlasio communicates directly with her clients and their families in French, Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish, as needed.

Ms. DeBlasio works predominantly in federal courts in the Eastern and Southern Districts of New York; she also is licensed to practice in federal and state courts in Florida, New Jersey and Washington, D.C.
