Ken Belkin is as passionate an advocate a client could ever want. His results speak for themselves. His clients have referred to him as a “miracle worker” and a “magician” for obtaining favorable dispositions on extremely difficult cases. Ken is not afraid of a challenge and does not stop fighting until he had gotten the best possible result for his clients.
Ken primarily focuses on Criminal Defense, Matrimonial (divorce), Restaurant and Bar representation and Civil Rights litigation (false arrest, malicious prosecution). He has worked for and continues to serve as Of Counsel to some of the most prominent Criminal Defense Attorneys in the New York City metropolitan area.
Ken holds a Bachelor’s in Political Science from Hunter College (CUNY) and a Juris Doctor from New York Law School. He is admitted to practice in all State Courts in the State of New York, as well as the Federal Courts in the Eastern and Southern Districts of New York. He has appeared on the Fox News Channel, ABC, CBS, New York 1, i24 News, the Law and Crime Network, Crimewatch Daily and Cheddar to discuss relevant legal topics of the day. In 2016 Ken Belkin ran for the Democratic nomination for NYS Assembly District No. 53 in Brooklyn, NY.
In 2019, Ken was recognized as a Super Lawyers Rising Star for his excellency in the area of Criminal Defense.
In his free time (what little of it he possesses) Ken can be found in either hot yoga or boxing classes.
