Westchester County Misdemeanor Defense Attorney
Compassionate Representation & Aggressive Advocacy
A misdemeanor charge may not be as serious as a felony, but that does not mean that it should be taken lightly. Even misdemeanors can end up on your permanent criminal record if you are convicted, meaning that employers, financial institutions, and potential landlords will see your charge on background checks. If you are young, this can greatly affect your future and even make you ineligible for student financial aid.
Your future is important, and our Westchester County misdemeanor defense attorney has over 20 years of experience defending hundreds of people throughout their criminal charges. We know that you may be scared or overwhelmed, and we will use our experience to make sure you have legal assistance every step of the way.
Call our office at (914) 712-6878 to seek representation from an experienced attorney. We offer free case evaluations and will even meet with you after-hours in our office in Mount Kisco or White Plains.
