Status & Updates: Staying on Top of Your Case

Whether you are a current client or just engaging the firm, our responsiveness will never lag.

Closures, Adjournments & Emergency Applications: Changes in the Court System

The NYS Criminal Courts, NYS Family Courts and both City and Justice Courts in the Hudson Valley are closed. However, exigent matters, including arraignments for new arrests and petitions for Orders of Protection, for example, are still remotely heard by judges. These cases and applications are handled either by video or phone with the respective court. Matters pending prior to the shutdown are or will be administratively adjourned. You will not need to appear for the court to adjourn your case and judges will not be issuing bench warrants. We will advise you of the changed date. Currently, many cases are being pushed out into June. Should you be sick or unavailable to appear in court on the new date, please advise us so we can take the steps to ensure no issues arise.

Standing Shoulder to Shoulder: Overcoming & Stronger Together

These are challenging times. While our shared enemy, COVID-19, may have insidiously crept into our lives in a way none of us could have ever imagined, let facts, not irrational fear, lead the way. Not only do first responders, neighbors, friends and even strangers we do not know stand shoulder to shoulder, but so does the Crotty Saland PC family. Yes, one of us may fall, and the skies may get dark, but we will lift each other up and see one another through. Make no mistake. The clouds will break, and when they do, we will thrive even greater than before.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
Elizabeth Crotty represented me for a misdemeanor assault charge and got it completely dismissed and sealed. She took the time to listen to my side of the story, understand what my concerns were, and worked with me on a strategy for success. She clearly laid out the entire process that we would be going through together, and she fully explained all the possible outcomes and what to expect at each step of the process... Vincent
★★★★★
Elizabeth represented me in an assault matter and was able to convince the Assistant District Attorney to dismiss my case within a matter of weeks. Additionally, she was able to do so for less than what I was anticipating on spending on my case. I am more than grateful for her incredibly fast and attentive responsiveness and communication as it made the entire ordeal as painless as possible... William
★★★★★
Jeremy answered his phone at 3am to help secure my son's release without bail, within hours. He went straight to the people that mattered and kept my son informed in the cells, giving him hope when no one was communicating with us. He was helpful to the extreme; very kind; very calming for my son; very confident he would be released. The fact he answered the phone, in bed, at 3am, when he was asleep was stunning... Sarah
