EVAN A. OSTRER
Evan began his legal career at Ostrer Rosenwasser, LLP in Chester, New York, before joining the Kings County District Attorney’s Office as an Assistant District Attorney. There, Evan successfully prosecuted hundreds of felony and misdemeanor cases, including violent crimes, vehicular, drug and white collar crime offenses. This broad spectrum of experience allowed Evan to gain great knowledge of the vast criminal law arena from investigation through trial. While working at the DA’s Office, Evan also formed many valuable friendships with fellow attorneys, prosecutors, judges, clerks, bailiffs, police officers, corrections officers, probation officers and judicial assistants that continue to be of great benefit to his practice today.
After leaving the DA’s Office in 2012, Evan joined GM, handling criminal defense at the State and Federal levels in New York and New Jersey. Evan has successfully represented his diverse clientele accused of violent crimes, sex crimes, white collar crimes, theft, vehicular/DWI and drug related offenses. He currently represents individuals from all walks of life, from corporations to police officers. In addition, Evan handles complex civil litigation, personal injury and real estate law at the firm.
In recognition of Mr. Ostrer’s dedication, hard work and success, he has most recently been recognized by 201 Magazine as one of Bergen County’s top criminal lawyers.
Originally from Great Neck, Long Island, Evan went on to pursue his education in Massachussets, New York, Michigan and Australia, and is now a proud resident of New Jersey.
