Attorney Profile

(914) 831-6223


 Westchester Criminal Lawyer Richard A. Portale is one of the premiere criminal litigators in New York and Westchester. He recieved his BA from the University of Buffalo and his JD from John Marshall Law School. While at UB, Mr. Portale majored in Interdisciplinary Studies, Classics, and Philosophy of Law, and played football, basketball, and rugby. 

After receiving his JD, Mr. Portale moved to Westchester, New York where he studied for the Bar while simultaneously co-manging the re-election campaign of then Westchester County DA-
 Jeanine Pirro. That year, Ms. Pirro received a greater percentage of votes for DA than any candidate in Westchester County history. 

In January 1998, Mr. Portale was hired as an ADA
 at the Westchester County DA's Office. During his near 5 year tenure there, he rose through the ranks: from Motions and Appeals, to Grand Jury, to Narcotics and Gangs. In his career as a prosecutor, Mr. Portale achieved a conviction in every case he tried but one (Lou Galgano). 

Mr. Portale left the DA's Office in 2002 and joined one of the most successful Plaintiff's Medical Malpractice Firms in the nation- Duffy, Duffy & Burdo, where he further honed his trial and litigation skills.
