Attorney - Criminal
Law Offices of Scott J. Limmer
I am a criminal defense attorney and I represent clients with felony or misdemeanor charges in Long Island or New York City in state or federal court. 

If you or a family member is under investigation or has been charged with a crime, you need to act quickly.  If you are convicted of a crime, there can be devastating consequences: even besides possible time in jail or prison and/or heavy fines, conviction may cost you your driver’s license, prevent you from holding certain jobs, and follow you around every time you apply for a new job. Don’t face this alone – get expert help right away.

I am a former Nassau County assistant district attorney and will draw on over 20 years’ experience practicing criminal law. I will also serves as a guide and advocate, carefully and thoroughly handling every step in the process, from finding and questioning witnesses, gathering evidence, and exploring every possible defense, to preparing and filing court pleadings, and zealously representing you in all hearings or proceedings. You don’t have to face the stress and uncertainty alone – put a strong, effective advocate on your side.

Insurance - Employee Health Benefits
Insurance Planning Associates
In 1984 I entered the most extraordinary field. We call it financial chess, you call it INSURANCE. We deliver resources when they are needed, in the 3 most important areas… FAMILY, HEALTH and MONEY.

As product becomes more efficient and customizable the risk shifting nature of insurance has greater appeal to all. We look forward to sharing concepts, solutions and opportunities on both a wholesale and retail platform. Through public and professional seminars we conduct we have met thousands of people. We encourage you to challenge us and find out why we are the firm to both work with and refer those important to you!
