New Paltz Town Court Lawyer
A person charged with a criminal offense in New York has to defend against the charges in the county where they were charged. Each court has a slightly different approach, and different areas of criminal law that it most frequently handles.
New Paltz is where I keep my home office, so I am very familiar with the court system here, and I have more than 25 years of experience as a New Paltz Town Court attorney defending clients in the New Paltz court. Lawrence R. Trank, PLLC, my criminal defense and personal injury law firm, provides personalized service and skilled representation, backed with experience.
Cases Heard in the New Paltz Town Court
The most frequent cases heard by the New Paltz town court include:
- Traffic: Since it sits right off the New York Thruway, New Paltz sees a lot of traffic violations like speeding tickets, trucking and CDL violations.
- Drunk driving: I have represented many clients charged with DWI or felony DWI in the New Paltz town court.
- Student offenses: With The State University of New York (SUNY) so close, I represent a lot of young adults for common student offenses like drug crimes (most commonly marijuana possession) and shoplifting.
