Our Team

After working for a federal judge, at a large New York City law firm, and at a "boutique" litigation firm, Zachary Margulis-Ohnuma opened a solo practice in 2004. He focused on sex crimes and complex federal crimes, as well as cases of serious civil rights abuses. The practice grew as Mr. Margulis-Ohnuma obtained reversals of state and federal convictions, acquittals in state court, and multiple verdicts and settlements of millions of dollars in civil rights cases. The Law Office of Zachary Margulis-Ohnuma now consists of three attorneys and a paralegal focused on fighting for clients accused of sex crimes, complex federal crimes, and crimes involving technology including cell phones and the internet.

Paralegal Elizabeth Ashlee Kuan, who expects to start law school in the fall of 2019, rounds out our team.

Zachary is an excellent lawyer with great concern for his clients and equally great skills and thinking outside the box. I met him as an adversary and chose to keep him as a friend. He is both able and dedicated. In his areas of practice, he is outstanding. Joel A.
I highly recommend Zachary as a defense attorney. I hired him on a very serious jury case and the bottom line is we won. It is the best decision of my life at a critical point in my life. Zach was very professional, personable, a diligent expert, a masterful strategist but most importantly he took the time to understand my perspective. Ronald C.
