Our Carmel Criminal Attorneys will treat you the same way we would like to be treated if we were in your situation. It is essential that your lawyer listen to you concerns, and that they provide you with an honest and objective opinion about how you should proceed. We are a Carmel Criminal Defense Team who will discuss how your case may impact your life and we will work with you to help you make a decision that best suits your personal objectives.

It is essential that you are aware that a conviction, whether for a crime, an infraction, or a violation, may carry substantial collateral consequences. In fact, if you are not a citizen, a conviction may result in your removal from the United States. Our Carmel Criminal Defense Attorneys discuss these potential collateral consequences with you, and we will work with you to try to minimize, and if possible, eliminate these possible hardships by exploring different options in terms of possible resolutions of your case.

Collateral Consequences of Criminal Convictions may include, and are not limited to the following:

  1. Loss of your freedom
  2. Loss of your job
  3. Immigration consequences
  4. You may be placed on probation
  5. You may be subjected to random drug testing and be required to undergo drug treatment
  6. You may be ineligible for a professional license

Carmel Criminal Defense Cases

Carmel New York is a Town in Putnam County New York. It has a population of approximately 34,000 people. Carmel sits along several major roads and highways and has a metro north train station, making it a regional transportation hub. For that reason, the Carmel Town Court is located at 60 Mcalpin Avenue in Carmel New York and it is very busy with DWI and other vehicle and traffic cases, as well as drug cases that result from vehicle and traffic stops.

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. Our Carmel Criminal Defense Lawyers are part of a legal defense team that includes forensic experts, private investigators with law enforcement backgrounds, and seasoned attorneys. As a Carmel Criminal Defense Lawyer, Mayo Bartlett is familiar with the procedures of the Carmel Town Court, and other Putnam County courts.

Our Carmel Criminal Lawyers routinely handle DWI cases in Carmel and throughout Putnam County and the Hudson Valley. For more information about what our Carmel DWI Lawyers do, and for more information about New York DWI cases, please visit our New York DWI License Center. 

Our Carmel Criminal Lawyers 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.

We also represent clients charged with drug cases, and have been successful in entering our clients into drug court, helping them to avoid jail sentences for many significant felony drug charges. Of course, every case is unique, and we therefore utilize unique strategies to fit each case. If you have a matter and are interested in entering Diversion Court to address a substance, alcohol, or mental health issue, our Carmel Criminal Lawyers will discuss possible solutions with you.
