Bio:
Joseph Tacopina is the senior partner and lead trial attorney at Tacopina, Seigel & DeOreo.

Mr. Tacopina is considered one of the nation’s premier and most respected criminal trial attorneys, having successfully tried more than 100 cases throughout his distinguished career.

Known as a fierce litigator, Mr. Tacopina has zealously represented clients in State and Federal Courts throughout the nation, in both criminal and civil matters. That is why numerous high-profile clients have flocked to him for representation, including Jay Z, Alex Rodriguez, Meek Mill, Rakim, Michael Jackson, Sticky Fingaz, Sean Hannity, Don Imus, Lillo Brancato, and YG. His clients have also included politicians, judges, Wall Street executives, and other professionals.

While Mr. Tacopina ably defends clients in the court of public opinion, he has also proven equally adept at keeping many of his clients out of the public eye.

As a former prosecutor, Mr. Tacopina understands how his adversaries in criminal cases operate, and his unmatched string of acquittals and successful verdicts in difficult cases is irrefutable proof of his talents as a skilled and savvy courtroom tactician. In fact, renowned for his highly potent cross-examination style, Mr. Tacopina often lectures to other lawyers nationally and publishes material on the subject.

Because of Mr. Tacopina’s extensive litigation experience in both Federal and State Courts, along with his unparalleled track-record of results in some very high-profile cases, Mr. Tacopina frequently appears as an expert legal analyst on various national and local media outlets. He can regularly be seen on MSNBC, CNBC, NBC, CBS, ABC, Fox News, CNN, and Court TV, and heard on his weekly appearances on the Bernie and Sid morning radio show.

Mr. Tacopina is a member of the Harvard Law School faculty, teaching in its Trial Advocacy Workshop.
