Subjack named to Superlawyers Upstate Edition

Fredonia attorney James P. Suback has been named to the New York 2014 Superlawyers Upstate Edition as one of the top lawyers in the area of criminal defense, an honor he has received for the fourth consecutive year. No more than 5 percent of the lawyers in the state are selected by Superlawyers.

The upstate edition of Superlawyers includes 50 upstate counties west of New York City and includes the cities of Buffalo, Syracuse, Rochester and Albany. Inclusion is based upon a state-wide survey of lawyers, independent research to identify outstanding lawyers, evaluation of candidates based upon 12 indicators of peer recognition, professional achievement and a blue ribbon panel review.

Subjack stated, “It is with pride and humility that I accept this honor. It is extremely gratifying to be recognized by your peers state wide as being pre-eminent in the field of criminal law and an honor which I strive every day to maintain.”

Subjack was District Attorney of Chautauqua County, first being elected in 1993 and retiring in 2005. He was the president of the Criminal Justice Section of the New York State Bar Association in 2009 through 2011. Subjack was elected a fellow of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences in 2009, the highest distinction that can be achieved in that organization. He has lectured both nationally and state-wide on criminal justice issues.

Subjack resides in Fredonia with his wife Janel and they are the parents of two adult children.
