With more than 25 years of experience as a New Paltz lawyer, I understand the importance of aggressive and decisive action.

At Lawrence R. Trank, PLLC, I truly care about my clients, and they can tell that when we work together. My clients get my cellphone number and access to me, not just my assistants and paralegals. I will give you the personal attention you and your case deserve.

Protect Your Rights…
Right Now

I move quickly in criminal defense cases, because there is no time to spare. I will conduct any necessary investigation and build a case designed to protect your rights.

Whether you have been accused of a traffic offense such as drunk driving or you face any other criminal charge, you can be confident in my ability to stand up for you. I know my way around the local courts. I have established a reputation for success in challenging cases.

In personal injury cases, insurance companies have a goal: They want to minimize the compensation they will have to provide to the victim. They will begin working toward that goal very soon after an accident has occurred. To prevent being taken advantage of by an insurance company, you should retain an attorney as soon as possible.
