About Jacqueline E. Cistaro

With over two decades of legal experience, Jacqueline Cistaro possesses a distinct and extensive skill set that enriches her legal practice. She has handled a myriad of cases as both a prosecutor and a defense attorney.

Ms. Cistaro embarked on her legal career as an Assistant Public Defender at the Miami-Dade Public Defender's Office, one of the largest indigent criminal defense firms in the nation. During her tenure, she passionately represented clients facing a wide spectrum of criminal charges, ranging from misdemeanors to first-degree felonies. Her dedication extended from arraignment to case resolution, including numerous trials resulting in verdicts.

Furthermore, Ms. Cistaro also served as a Deputy Attorney General at the Office of the Attorney General of New Jersey. In this role, she prosecuted a broad array of felony cases statewide, including those involving multiple defendants and cooperative investigations spanning various agencies. Her time as a Deputy Attorney General provided invaluable insights into the inner workings and strategies of both prosecutor's offices and law enforcement agencies, which greatly benefit her ongoing career as a trial defense lawyer.

In her private practice, based in New York City, Ms. Cistaro fervently champions the rights of both adults and juveniles in state and federal courts. Her clientele extends not only locally but also nationally and internationally, representing individuals from Europe, South and Central America, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Africa.

Jacqueline Cistaro remains an engaged member of the legal community, actively participating in various associations. She serves on the Criminal Law Committee of the New York City Bar Association and the New York Women's Bar Association. Additionally, she is a member of the New York State Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, New York State Bar Association, and the Federal Bar Council.
