STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. (Aug. 3, 2018) – The law firm of Menicucci Villa Cilmi PLLC (MVC) has welcomed prominent criminal defense attorney Joseph V. Sorrentino as an “Of Counsel” member to its legal team.
“Practicing in federal courts nationwide and the state courts of New York and New Jersey, Joseph Sorrentino is a seasoned criminal defense lawyer and former prosecutor with more than three decades of impressive performance,” said Michael M. Menicucci, MVC founder and managing partner. “His contribution to our legal team offers our clients a fresh perspective and convenient access to a top criminal defense attorney, further underscoring our firm’s long-standing commitment to excellence. It’s great to welcome Joe on board.”
Sorrentino, who attended St. John’s University and St. John’s University Law School with Menicucci, began his legal career in 1984 as an assistant district attorney in the Bronx and left four years later to pursue his passion of criminal defense.
He has since worked the gamut of criminal cases, defending clients accused of illegal acts such as those involving organized crime; major drug cases; fraud; theft; gambling; racketeering; money laundering; alleged violations of the Hobbs Act, a federal extortion statute, and purported breeches of U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission laws, to name just a few.
“I’m very pleased to associate myself with Menicucci Villa Cilmi,” Sorrentino said. “MVC’s long-established reputation of integrity, uncompromised due diligence, and success align well with the character and high ethical standards that define my practice.”
