The Bronx is a northern Borough of New York City and has a population of almost 1.5 million people. It is an extremely diverse county in terms of both demographics and economics, and it presents unique challenges to criminal defendants for a number of reasons including a historically slow court system and the recently disparaged police of Stop and Frisk which was implemented by the NYPD.
Mayo Bartlett has handled thousands of criminal cases, and has successfully had many violent felony charges reduced to misdemeanors, or had them dismissed entirely. He has obtained a verdict of not guilty for a variety of violent charges that would have resulted in sentences of decades, and sometimes life in prison. Most importantly, Mayo has successfully done numerous criminal trials and handled thousands of criminal matters.
Bronx Criminal Defense Cases
Criminal cases are among the least understood legal matters a person can face. Often, the allegations alone are enough to damage a person’s life, causing the accused to lose eligibility to receive federal student loans, the right to remain in the United States if he or she is an immigrant, and even their freedom. It is important to choose an attorney who has experience handling these delicate cases. As a Criminal Defense Law Firm, our Bronx criminal defense lawyers are uniquely prepared to address these nuances. Our Bronx criminal defense legal team includes forensic experts, private investigators with law enforcement backgrounds, and seasoned attorneys. As a Criminal Defense Lawyer who practices in the Bronx, Mayo Bartlett is fully familiar with the procedures of the criminal courts in the Bronx.
