Chappaqua Criminal Defense Cases

New Castle, New York is a community steeped in history and located in the heart of Westchester County New York. New Castle is home to Chappaqua New York which is known for being the place where Bill and Hillary Clinton reside. The New Castle Town Court is located at 200 S Greeley Avenue in Chappaqua, NY 10514. If you have been contacted by the New Castle Police, or if you have been arrested in Chappaqua, New York, contact our Chappaqua criminal attorneys and let us help you. Criminal cases are among the least understood legal matters a person can face. Often, criminal 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 Chappaqua Criminal Defense Lawyers, we are uniquely prepared to represent you in this unique Westchester County jurisdiction.

Although Chappaqua, New York is an extremely wealthy community, the New Castle Town Court can be a busy place. The Saw Mill River Parkway runs through Chappaqua, and as a result, there are lots of vehicle and traffic stops by the New Castle Police Department and by the Westchester County Police Department. Some of these traffic stops result in DWI charges, and some lead to other criminal charges such as Drug charges and Gun charges.
