New York State Criminal Defense
Prior to starting the firm, Elizabeth Crotty and Jeremy Saland each served for several years as Assistant District Attorneys under Robert Morgenthau in the Manhattan District Attorney's Office. After leaving the Manhattan District Attorney's Office and prior to starting Crotty Saland PC, Ms. Crotty and Mr. Saland worked in two boutique New York law firms handling complex civil litigation and criminal defense respectively while Mr. Katz remained in law enforcement as a Federal prosecutor in the the Eastern District of New York, District of New Jersey and Main Justice.
Unlike many other law firms and other New York City criminal defense attorneys, Crotty Saland, PC is not a multi specialty civil practice that merely handles some criminal cases while juggling your criminal matter with another client’s landlord-tenant dispute or estate planning issues. Although we aggressively advocate for our clients in complex civil litigation matters, we utilize our training and experience to defend your criminal case as the main emphasis of our practice. In doing so, we serve clients throughout the New York City region including Manhattan, Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens, Westchester, Rockland and other municipalities when charged with or investigated for white collar crimes, non-violent crimes & property crimes, violent crimes, weapon crimes, desk appearance tickets (D.A.T.), DWI & DUI crimes, bench and arrest warrants, juvenile crimes, probation violations, identity theft crimes, cyber crimes, and drug crimes.
In addition to representing clients accused of criminal wrongdoing, the lawyers at Crotty Saland PC advocate for clients who are victims of or witnesses to crimes as well. Whether you are an attorney or doctor who is the target of embezzlement, a young professional being harassed online by a jealous former partner, a woman subject to domestic violence or an individual being extorted by a former colleague, Crotty Saland PC can help construct a formidable case to either bring to law enforcement or best ensure that your adversary ceases his or her conduct without escalating to third parties.
As New York City criminal defense lawyers, our firm has one goal or objective. That is, zealously advocating on your behalf by utilizing our vast experience and knowledge of the criminal law to get you the best possible outcome. Whether that means taking your case to trial, working out a favorable disposition with the prosecution, or whatever you decide it is, we will treat you with compassion, courtesy, and respect while aggressively pursuing every legal angle to put you where you want, and need, to be. After all, it’s not just your rights that are at stake, but your liberty, integrity and livelihood.
