Mr. Parlatore is no stranger to the spotlight, as he has proved time and again that he performs best under pressure and in high-profile cases where adept media relations are a necessity.

Mr. Parlatore’s career path is somewhat unique, as he began by working for smaller criminal firms in New York City. Here, he was able to work with and learn directly from several iconic defense attorneys before running a successful solo practice. In 2016, he merged his solo practice with one of the largest cloud-based firms in the nation to help them start a white-collar practice group. Three years later, he founded Parlatore Law Group to improve upon the cloud-based model, while providing a platform that caters to smaller businesses and individual clients.

Some current representative matters include large scale securities fraud, insider trading, mortgage fraud, money laundering and racketeering.
In addition to his impressive legal experience, Mr. Parlatore is heavily influenced by his military experience as a former Naval Officer and veteran of Operation Enduring Freedom.
