Elizabeth Crotty and Jeremy Saland are the founding members of Crotty Saland PC, a criminal defense firm that represents those accused of crimes in Federal, State and Local courts. Crotty Saland PC also advocates for men and women who are victims of larceny, embezzlement, blackmail, harassment, extortion and other criminal conduct to build cases for law enforcement or to better resolve personal matters privately. Both Liz and Jeremy served as Assistant District Attorneys in Robert Morgenthau’s Manhattan District Attorney’s Office for five and seven years respectively. Liz’s tenure included both the Trial and Investigations Divisions while Jeremy exclusively worked in the Trial Division and was one of the original prosecutors assigned to the Identity Theft Unit, the precursor to the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office’s esteemed Identity Theft and Cybercrime Bureau. After leaving the District Attorney’s Office, Jeremy continued to sharpen his skills in the courtroom as a Town Prosecutor in Westchester County where he served in a law enforcement capacity for an additional five years.
Jeremy and Liz gained invaluable experience in the trenches of the New York City Criminal and Supreme Courts where for years the spearheaded thousands of cases from inception through trial. During this time, they were assigned to numerous divisions including the Domestic Violence and DWI units while also supervising ECAB, the unit that reviews all police arrests and assigns those cases to prosecutors to draft and arraign. Similarly, in their defense practice, both Liz and Jeremy represent their clients at all stages of investigation and prosecution. If a matter is one that can be resolved without law enforcement, with a lesser plea, a dismissal or trial before a judge or jury, Jeremy and Liz possess the knowledge, skill and ability to see a case through in whatever direction it may lead. Simply, neither one of our founding members is intimated by prosecutors or any branch of law enforcement. Instead of seeking the easiest resolution, and one that may not be the best of our clients, Liz and Jeremy will challenge evidence and allegations at any stage. Whatever may be legally required, Crotty Saland PC will examine a client’s options and present a plan of action that we believe will resolve your case in the most appropriate manner.
Jeremy and Liz remain active in the legal field and have been honored and commended for their service and advocacy. Not only has Liz been awarded the coveted Super Lawyer designation, she also serves on the New York City Bar Association’s Judiciary Committee where she and her colleagues interview and investigate potential judicial appointments for judgeships throughout the five boroughs. Jeremy has served as the treasurer of the New York City Bar Association’s Small Law Firm Committee, was appointed to the position of Town Prosecutor and was elected in 2016 as Councilman of a Westchester County municipality. Just as they worked together as prosecutors and criminal defense attorneys since 2000, both Liz and Jeremy serve together as committee members of the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office Association, the official not-for-profit alumni group of the New York County District Attorney’s Office.
Whether a client is arrested by the NYPD or a Federal agent or an accused is facing an investigation, arrest, indictment, trial or any prosecution in the criminal, Supreme, County or Federal courts, Crotty Saland PC is armed with experience second to none. To that end, our attorneys are admitted and practice in the criminal courts of New York City and neighboring counties as well as the Federal Courts of both the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York. If a financial services professional, lawyer, teacher, business person or any other individual is being extorted, threatened or harassed and seeks advocacy in either the Family Court regarding an order of protection or a discreet resolution outside law enforcement to end their victimization, Crotty Saland PC has the knowledge required and tools necessary to do just that.
The issue is not whether Crotty Saland PC is capable of providing you the best opportunity that any criminal lawyer can to identify and implement a defense that puts you in the strongest position to resolve your criminal predicament. Instead, the real question is whether you want to best protect yourself now and in the future with honest and diligent counsel or you take the unfortunate step down a decidedly different path and compound your already perilous position by retaining an attorney who lacks the level of knowledge and experience you require.
