Alexander R Shmulsky Attorney at Law

Just what you need to know

About us

Welcome to my site, my name is Alex and I am the principal attorney for Shmulsky Law. I am licensed in both New York and Massachusetts and take cases throughout the Capital Region and upstate New York, including Albany, Saratoga, Ticonderoga, Elizabethtown, and Plattsburgh and everywhere in between, including cases in Western Massachusetts.

I am the attorney you need to hire if you are looking for effective legal representation. Having practiced law for the greater part of a decade I have the experience to help guide you to the results you want. I have an ability to handle simple legal matters and highly complicated cases that other lawyers avoid. I am a meticulous researcher, both judges and opposing counsel know that I am prepared to back-up my clients.

When I was fourteen years of age, my older brother was charged with a serious crime. My parents hired a lawyer that came in and “saved the day” for my family. This lawyer guided them through the justice system to successful results. That very day I decided I wanted to help people like that lawyer had my brother and my family. I became an attorney ten years later in 2007, and I started my firm. Since then, I have successfully handled many types of legal situations, and I would like the opportunity to assist you with your current legal needs.

I am a general practice attorney, however, my areas of expertise include:

Criminal defense: In County and Town Courts, for all crimes including: Drunk Driving, Violent Crimes, drug cases, domestic cases and traffic tickets

Divorce: from simple uncontested to complex contested trials including family law and custody disputes

Real estate: Residential and Commercial closings, deeds, property disputes and rights of way, and evictions.

I also work with many small business owners and provide legal services that small businesses need.

What sets me apart from the rest? Communication. Customer service is of the upmost importance to me. All calls and messages are answered or returned promptly by me. I am your lawyer and I am available to you. Clients are encouraged to call, text or message me any time they would like to contact me. I believe communication is the most important step to assure my clients make informed smart decisions. I will explain your case every step of the way, and I will work towards resolving it for you on your terms.

You Can Contact me via telephone, text, email, Facebook or via this website.

I look forward to hearing from you and getting started.

Criminal Defense

Criminal Defense in the Saratoga and Ticonderoga area

When you are facing criminal charges, it is imperative that you find a lawyer that has the experience and the training to protect you from the prosecution. Even minor criminal convictions can bring fines and set you up for harsher punishments should you ever be convicted of anything else. Should you be convicted of a more serious crime, your life may be forever altered. Heavy fines, imprisonment – these are punishments that can put an end to your dreams for you, your loved ones and your future.

At Shmulsky Law, I offer clients a way to stand up for themselves and protect their rights. No matter how fierce the prosecution, I fight back with everything at my disposal to get the best result available give the circumstances. I am ready to give you the aggressive representation you deserve. Please contact my firm now to learn more.

Criminal Defense

Representing Clients Throughout the Saratoga And Ticonderoga areas

I help clients who have been accused of a variety of crimes, including theft, sexual assault, drug offenses, minor in possession or consumption of alcohol, bank fraud, DWI and more. Working with clients throughout Saratoga, Ticonderoga and surrounding areas, I provide the specialized insight necessary to effectively fight criminal charges.

Representing yourself is never a smart option – at least not if you want to avoid the worst of the charges and potential punishments you are facing. There is a reason it takes so much work and study to effectively practice law, and talent to become successful at it. Law is complicated, and criminal law is particularly complicated. Yes, hiring an attorney costs money. But the money you spend is an investment in the services of a professional who can help you in a situation where you have more to lose than any other.

Going For Results In Your Case

As your attorney, I will put all of my knowledge and experience to work in your defense. Every case is different, so there is no way to know exactly what the outcome will be. What I can assure you of is that I will do everything in my ability to win your case. This will include:

Attempt to get your charges dropped, or lowered if getting them dropped is not an option.
Conduct pre-trial investigations.
Interview all parties involved in the case to see that you are being treated properly.
Ensure that no illegal evidence is admitted.
Take advantage of witnesses and investigators to demonstrate your case.
Seek the lowest penalties we can obtain through plea bargaining.
Keeping In Touch

When you have so much on the line, there is nothing worse than being left in the dark by your attorney. I make it a point to keep in touch with all of my clients to keep them in the loop about what is going on with their case. You never have to worry that you are being left in the dark.

Let me put my skills and resources to use on your behalf. Please contact me today at Shmulsky Law to get started on your case.

Residential Real Estate

Residential Real Estate Serving the Saratoga And Ticonderoga area

For most people, real estate transactions are the largest financial transactions they will ever be involved in. When dealing with such important matters, the help of an experienced real estate attorney can prove invaluable. Whether you are purchasing a property, selling, facing foreclosure or modifying a loan, the success of your efforts may hinge upon the insight only a real estate attorney can provide.

At Shmulsky Law, I offer all the legal insight you need when dealing in residential real estate. Serving the Saratoga and Ticonderoga areas, I have the experience and knowledge to help you understand your options and seek the outcomes you are looking for.

Real Estate

Minimizing Complications

New York real estate law can be complex, which can create a real challenge with even the simplest tasks. You have rights and there is a strong legal framework in place to protect those rights. However, it is difficult to know exactly what you can and can’t do when you have no legal training. Your actions may have consequences you are not even aware of – consequences which can have a serious impact on your future and your bank account.

My residential real estate law services are designed to help you avoid such consequences. I am here to minimize the complications you face, whatever your goals happen to be. You may be dealing with a potential foreclosure on your home, and in need of advice on what your options are. Or perhaps you are a real estate investor, seeking the most efficient way to expand your portfolio and remain compliant with ever-changing laws and regulations. Whatever your circumstances, I can help.

An Investment

No one wants to spend more money than they have to. The fact that you are involved in buying, selling or owning real estate is a testament to your desire to plan smart for the future. Real estate can be a great investment, but only if you keep control of your costs. Frugality is a virtue in many circumstances. However, success also requires knowing when to invest.

Real estate law services are an investment in your future. For a reasonable cost, you can get a clear picture of what you are dealing with, along with a map that shows you how to avoid potentially disastrous mistakes moving forward.

Contact Shmulsky Law Today

Guided me through a traumatic divorce – ★★★★★

I hired Alexander Shmulsky to be my divorce attorney and am very grateful to have found him. He worked diligently, professionally and knowledgeably throughout the case to bring it to a conclusion as painlessly as possible. Divorce and everything that leads up to one is painful. Mr. Shmulsky was always available by phone and/or returned calls promptly. He didn’t even charge extra for the calls (some lawyers do) and I MUST mention that he is a good and kind man who returned one call the next day simply to help keep me calm as it was very traumatic for me. He adds a humanity to the law if you can believe that.


Great Attorney, Knowledgeable and Responsive – ★★★★★

Alex has successfully handled multiple residential real estate purchases for me. He is a pleasure to work with and is always professional. Alex is very accessible, perceptive and extremely thorough with all the process and paperwork. I would highly recommend his practice and will continue to work with him in the future.


Fantastic Real Estate Experience – ★★★★★

I have bought and sold many homes and have now used Alex as my attorney for 3 closings, all have gone really smoothly. He explains everything to me each time. I will use him for all future deals as well.
