Joseph Teller Book and Novel

Joseph Teller - Author


Joseph Teller was born and raised in New York City. After graduating from University of Michigan Law School, he returned to New York City and spent three years working undercover for the Federal Bureau of Narcotics.

For the next thirty-five years, he worked as a criminal defense attorney representing murderers, drug dealers, thieves and at least one serial killer. When New York State restored the death penalty in the nineties, Teller was one of a select group of lawyers given special training to represent capital defendants, which he did on several occasions, including winning an acquittal for a man accused of committing a double murder.

Not too long ago, Teller decided to “run from the law” and began writing fiction. The Tenth Case, his first novel for MIRA Books, will be followed by additional “Jaywalker” cases. Teller lives in upstate New York with his wife, an antiques dealer.
