Meet Attorney Michael A. Schillinger, Esq.

I’m Mike Schillinger, former prosecutor and experienced attorney serving New York clients in a range of complex and high-stakes criminal defense matters. I focus on providing personalized service and exceptional advocacy for clients facing some of the most difficult situations in their lives.


I’ve spent my entire career serving the public. I’ve worked as a criminal defense attorney, Assistant District Attorney, and also as a caseworker for a U.S. Congressman. Using that experience, I take a comprehensive approach on each of my clients’ cases and ensure that their cases are resolved as favorably and painlessly as possible.


A Wealth Of Legal Experience

While working full time for a U.S. Congressman, I obtained two degrees from St. John’s University, a Bachelor of Science in legal studies and a Juris Doctorate. Before graduating summa cum laude from St. John’s University’s undergraduate program, I captained the University’s trial competition team, helping our coaches successfully lead us through numerous trial competitions.

While attending St. John’s University School of Law, I served as the Executive Director on the board of the Polestino Trial Advocacy Institute. During my time as a member of the institute, I competed in a number of national trial competitions, placing in most of them, including the John Marshall Law School/American Bar Association Criminal Justice Trial Competition, where my team ranked second.
After graduating from St. John’s University School of Law, I became a prosecutor in Queens County under the Honorable Richard A. Brown. During my tenure as a prosecutor, I investigated and prosecuted numerous cases, ranging from misdemeanors to serious felony offenses. As a prosecutor, I often received these cases immediately after arraignment and handled them to their conclusion, granting me both the experience and knowledge of how the District Attorney’s Office will handle your case, and how to negotiate with the D.A. in order to minimize the penalties you may face.

Fierce Advocacy Balanced With Compassion And Understanding

Throughout my career, I have helped people through some of the worst tragedies of their lives. This experience allows me to understand the difficulties that my clients face and gives me the ability to handle each and every case with the compassion and dedication that I know my clients expect and deserve.
