According to the American Bar Association (ABA), there were 177,035 active attorneys in New York in 2017. New York has more attorneys than any other state in the U.S., including states with much larger populations. This is good news for New York residents, as there is a variety of choice when it comes to finding an attorney.

While more choice is generally a good thing, it can also lead to analysis paralysis. After all, when you find yourself in a situation where you need legal counsel, you are probably already experiencing undue financial or physical hardship. You need a qualified legal team as soon as possible.
