Whether due to an accidental misfiling and misrepresentation or an intentional effort to defraud, securing benefits from the numerous Small Business Administration grants by way of the Paycheck Protection Program or Economic Injury Disaster Loans is potentially criminal. Similarly, collecting Unemployment Insurance or other benefits, such as those provided by the New York City Covid-19 Immigrant Emergency Relief Program, for which you are not entitled may lead to your arrest, indictment and even incarceration.

Whatever the allegation or accusation, do not let an honest mistake or temporary lapse in judgement relegate you to a prison cell and the decimation of your otherwise honorable name that existed well before the fear, frustration and anxiety of the COVID-19 pandemic struck. Protect yourself and implement the right defense now, even during these uncertain times.

Closures, Adjournments & Emergency Applications: Changes in the Court System

The NYS Criminal Courts, NYS Family Courts and both City and Justice Courts in the Hudson Valley are closed. However, exigent matters, including arraignments for new arrests and petitions for Orders of Protection, for example, are still remotely heard by judges. These cases and applications are handled either by video or phone with the respective court. Matters pending prior to the shutdown are or will be administratively adjourned. You will not need to appear for the court to adjourn your case and judges will not be issuing bench warrants. We will advise you of the changed date. Currently, many cases are being pushed out into June. Should you be sick or unavailable to appear in court on the new date, please advise us so we can take the steps to ensure no issues arise.

Not only do first responders, neighbors, friends and even strangers we do not know stand shoulder to shoulder, but so does the Crotty Saland PC family. Yes, one of us may fall, and the skies may get dark, but we will lift each other up and see one another through. Make no mistake. The clouds will break, and when they do, we will thrive even greater than before.

... I was facing a class B felony and potentially tens of thousands in fines and some legit jail time and after hiring Jeremy Saland he obviously struck enough fear into the prosecutors with his sheer litigation might that it was knocked down to a petty misdemeanor and after a few sheckles and a handful of counseling sessions, I will no longer have a criminal record. The offices of Crotty Saland are the Shaq and Kobe of criminal defense in New York City and to even consider another firm is outright blasphemy. I stand by this statement 100% Evan
★★★★★
Let me start by saying how amazing Liz Crotty is! I am a resident of California, who needed representation for my son who received a desk citation while he was visiting NYC. Liz jumped on the case right away; she was very thorough in explaining things to me. She is strictly business too! She went to court on my son's behalf and had his case dismissed. I am forever grateful to her. Seana G.
