Westchester NY Criminal Defense Lawyers


Westchester Criminal Defense


Mayo Bartlett is a Westchester Criminal Lawyer who has been practicing criminal law in Westchester County New York for 25 years.  As a Westchester criminal defense lawyer, he has the experience and dedication that you or your loved one needs on their side when facing these serious charges. Mayo is a former Westchester County prosecutor who served more than 10 years in the Westchester County District Attorney’s Office in White Plains New York. In his role as a Westchester County Assistant District Attorney, Mayo served as a prosecutor for nearly every jurisdiction in Westchester County.  He also worked as a prosecutor in the Investigations Bureau, where he prosecuted theft, fraud and other white collar crimes.  

Mayo then spent time in the Westchester County District Attorney's office as a trial lawyer in the Superior Court Trial Division, doing trials of
 major felony cases.  Prior to leaving the Westchester County District Attorney's office, Mayo served as Chief of the Bias Crimes Unit, where he prosecuted hate crimes throughout Westchester County, and provided training in identifying, investigating and prosecuting hate crimes to Judges, Prosecutors, and police officers throughout Westchester County, the Hudson Valley and New York City.

Mayo Bartlett has also been a Westchester criminal defense lawyer since 2003, and he has a thorough understanding of police procedure and protocol from his years spent working with officers and detectives in White Plains and throughout Westchester County, New York City and the Hudson Valley. 

Westchester County New York has a population of nearly one million people.  It is one of the wealthiest counties in the United States. Westchester sits between New York City to it's south, Putnam County to its north, the Long Island Sound to its east, and the Hudson River and Rockland County to it's West.
 
As a Westchester criminal defense lawyer, Mayo Bartlett has handled thousands of criminal cases, and has successfully reduced the many violent felony charges to misdemeanors, or had them dismissed entirely. Mayo Bartlett and our Westchester County criminal defense lawyers have obtained verdicts of not guilty for a variety of criminal charges that would have resulted in sentences of decades, and sometimes life in prison. 

As a Westchester NY law firm, our Westchester County criminal attorneys are part of a defense team that includes forensic experts and skilled investigators.  Our Westchester Criminal defense lawyers have extensive experience in New York State and Federal Courts, and are familiar with every aspect of handling cases involving Felony and Misdemeanor Criminal cases from the investigative stage through trial.  Our Westchester County criminal defense attorneys, private investigators and forensic experts will work together with you to provide you with the best defense. 

Westchester County has over 40 municipalities and it is essential that you have a Westchester criminal lawyer to represent you if you have a case pending in Westchester.  Unlike New York City, which has a centralized court system and one police department, Westchester has over 40 different courts, and nearly as many individual police departments that work with the District Attorney's office in their own way.  If your lawyer is not familiar with these nuances it may make it more difficult for her or him to be as effective as possible when representing you.  

Our Westchester 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.

Our Westchester Criminal defense attorneys represent people who face criminal charges in criminal courts throughout Westchester NY.  We are in court almost every day.  We don't simply tell you to plea guilty.  We will review your case thoroughly to determine your best options.  Our Westchester criminal attorneys will then discuss your case with you and explain why we suggest a plea or trial.  Ultimately, we will respect your decision, and we will work with you to achieve the best possible result.
