  • Ivan S. Fisher is a prominent New York criminal defense attorney. He represents white-collar clients and others targeted or charged in complex federal matters. In 1980, The New York Times listed him in the top five of criminal attorneys in New York City and in a separate article described him as "one of the nation’s most sought-after and highly paid criminal lawyers." The New Yorker has called him one of "Manhattan's leading attorneys." John Kroger, the former Attorney General of Oregon and current president of Reed College, called Fisher "one of the top defense attorneys in the nation...and without question a brilliant trial lawyer." Fisher has been the recipient of many honors including being invited to address the United States Second Circuit Federal Judicial Conference. As a young lawyer, Fisher represented the writer Jack Henry Abbott in a murder trial in what many call "the trial of the decade" and was counsel for Joseph Bonanno also known as "Joey Bananas", the boss of the Bonanno crime family.
