Putnam County 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 Hudson Valley Criminal Defense Law Firm, our Putnam criminal defense lawyers are uniquely prepared to address these nuances. Our Putnam criminal defense legal team includes forensic experts, private investigators with law enforcement backgrounds, and seasoned attorneys. As a Hudson Valley Criminal Defense Lawyer, Mayo Bartlett is fully familiar with the procedures of Putnam County courts.

Our Putnam Criminal Defense Lawyers handle DWI cases throughout Putnam County. For more information about what our Putnam DWI Defense Lawyers do, and for more information about New York DWI cases, please visit our New York DWI License Center.

Our Putnam 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.

Even if you are not a student, a criminal conviction, or even a conviction of an infraction, or a violation, may result in severe collateral consequences. A conviction may lead to loss of employment, or eviction from your home. A conviction may even your removal from the United States if you are not a citizen. We will work with you to identify potentially troublesome collateral consequences of a conviction, and to hopefully avoid them.
