Khari Peter Prescod, is an experienced litigator in the fields of Matrimonal, Custody, Child Support, Child Abuse, Landlord and Tenant, Criminal and Real Estate matters in the Supreme, Criminal, Civil and Housing Courts of Kings (Brooklyn), Queens and Nassau Counties.
I was born in Brooklyn, New York to two wonderfully professionally educated parents (a mother who is a lawyer and my father who is a teacher). I received my undergraduate degree (B.A.) in English from the University at Albany, State University of New York and I received my law degree (J.D.) from the University of New Hampshire School of Law.
Prior to starting my own legal practice, I began my legal career at the Bronx County District Attorney's office where I prosecuted numerous misdemenaor and felony cases in both the trial and appellate courts.
Afterwards, I became legal counsel to New York State Assembly where I drafted legislation specifically in the areas of Children and Families and Real Estate.
I have been a practicing attorney since 2000 and am a member of the following organizations: Brooklyn Bar Association, Queens County Bar Association and New York City Bar Association.
