New York Criminal Defense

At the Law Offices of Mayo Bartlett PLLC, we provide aggressive, thorough, experienced and skilled representation to individuals and businesses in both state and federal matters.

Mayo Bartlett is a Criminal Defense Attorney who represents clients throughout Westchester, the Hudson Valley, and New York City, including the Bronx, Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens. Our Criminal Defense Lawyers regularly work with forensic experts and private investigators who are former law enforcement officers to evaluate our cases, and to formulate strategies that will be most effective for our clients' defense. Together, our Criminal Defense Lawyers, private investigators and forensic experts form a highly experienced and effective Criminal Defense team.

With offices located in White Plains New York at the Westchester Financial Center which is one block from the White Plains train station and bus depot, and two blocks from the Westchester County Court, our White Plains Criminal Defense Lawyers work with a team of licensed private investigators and forensic experts to diligently handle criminal matters in Federal Court, and in New York State Courts, Westchester County, including White Plains, Yonkers, Mount Vernon, Rye, Sleepy Hollow, Tarrytown, Dobbs Ferry, Chappaqua, Greenburgh, Elmsford, Valhalla, New Rochelle, Peekskill, Armonk, Mount Pleasant, Bronxville, Eastchester, Briarcliff, Edgemont, Hastings, Scarsdale, Mamaroneck, Hartsdale, Harrison, Mount Vernon, Port Chester, Bedford, Mount Kisco, Yorktown, Katonah, Pelham, Croton on Hudson, Cortlandt, Somers, Brewster, Southeast, Putnam County, Dutchess County, Putnam Valley, Ossining, New Castle, North Castle, Lewisboro, South Salem, North Salem, Pleasantville, Nyack, Ardsley, Irvington, Larchmont, and Tuckahoe. We also handle cases in Queens, Bronx, Manhattan, Brooklyn, Rockland County, Ulster County and throughout the Hudson Valley.

Our Criminal Defense law firm will honestly and effectively review your case and discuss your legal options with you. We will challenge the evidence presented against you by the prosecutor and carefully assess and evaluate the evidence against you to provide the most vigorous defense, and to give you the best advice with respect to how to handle your matter. We will fight to protect your Civil Rights as we provide you with a thorough and ethical Criminal Defense.

Criminal charges can completely change your life. Although the law states that you are innocent until proven guilty, the fact is that you may have severe consequences from the moment you are arrested, or even accused. Seemingly simple arrests for offenses like Unlawful Possession of Marihuana (Marijuana), DWI and Theft may lead to deportation or denial of United States citizenship if you are not a citizen of the United States. Our Criminal Defense Lawyers work closely with Immigration Attorneys to ensure that your criminal case does not have undue immigration consequences.

The New York State Penal Law is an extensive body of laws which make many acts criminal. Ignorance of the law is not a defense. If you are stopped by the police, remain silent, remain calm, and ask to speak to an Attorney. Even if you are innocent, it may be harmful for you to speak to law enforcement. One of our most valuable rights is the right to remain silent.

Having experienced and diligent legal counsel is essential because if you are convicted, the results may include substantial jail time and expensive fines imposed by the court.

Our New York Criminal Defense Attorneys also have extensive experience representing college students who have criminal charges against them. Seemingly minor charges like Marihuana possession and Petit Larceny can have devastating consequences for college students. These charges can lead to denial of student loans, and even expulsion from school. If you, or a loved one is a college student facing criminal charges contact us immediately so that we may help you effectively resolve the case while preserving your ability to complete your education.
