White Plains Criminal Defense Attorneys
For about a decade, our criminal defense attorneys have successfully represented Westchester and New York state residents charged with misdemeanors and felonies in White Plains. Our Law Office is located in downtown White Plains and our office is walking distance to two of the busiest criminal courts in Westchester. Our criminal defense attorneys are regulars in the White Plains City Court where all misdemeanors that occur in the City of White Plains are handled, as well as the Westchester County Court where all felonies which occur anywhere in the County of Westchester are handled.
Among the most frequent crimes is theft. In 2011, there were 1182 thefts per 100,000 in the population in White Plains, which was up approximately 10 percent from the year prior. A large amount of these thefts are petit larceny and grand larceny matters, which occur at the malls and big box stores in White Plains including the Westchester Mall, the White Plains Gallaria and City Center. Behind theft offenses, the next highest crime arrest rate were assaults, which was 54 occurrences per 100,000 population. This high rate is in large part due to the high density of bars in White Plains, along Mamaroneck Avenue, and East Post Road. These bars also account for a lot of criminal mischiefs, including broken windows and other property damage. There are also a lot of drug and narcotic arrests in White Plains, which are not fully reported. The high density of bars, clubs and even upscale restaurants also accounts for a high number of arrests for driving while intoxicated (D.W.I.) and driving while ability impaired by drugs. The police in White Plains frequent the bar parking lots and even set up D.W.I check points on a frequent basis. Although not frequently reported on, our White Plains criminal defense attorneys have also handled prostitution cases involving both online stings which target those who patronize prostitutes as well as cases involving the up scale prostitution rings involving escort services and spas.

Our criminal defense attorneys have won numerous not guilty verdicts, dismissals and charge reductions through plea bargaining. Our criminal defense attorneys can appear for bail hearings on short notice and we offer flexible payment plans.
