Facing Criminal Charges is Stressful

If you are reading this page, there is a chance that you have been charged with a crime, or you believe that criminal charges may soon be filed against you. To those in this situation, we appreciate the level of stress you are feeling. As experienced Westchester criminal defense lawyers, we understand that defending oneself against criminal prosecution can be a scary and intimidating experience.

Prosecutors, including the Westchester County District Attorney, have near unlimited resources.  In addition to threatening one’s freedom and finances, the prospect of a criminal conviction criminal can have long lasting impact in the form of stigma and damaged job prospects. The entire situation can feel as if it is out of your control.

You Need to Pick the Best Westchester Criminal Defense Lawyer

If you are facing criminal charges, there is one thing that you can control: you can choose the person who defends you.

The most important thing you can do to minimize the potential impact that criminal charges can have upon your life is to have a talented, experienced and dedicated criminal defense attorney standing by your side. If you are looking for the best Westchester criminal defense lawyer to advocate on your behalf, consider retaining Grant & Longworth.

Grant & Longworth founding partner George N. Longworth recently served as commissioner of the Westchester County police for eight years. As the chief executive of the county police, Mr. Longworth developed an understanding of the New York criminal justice system that few others can match.

In particular, he appreciates the intricate dynamics between the police, district attorney’s office and court system. The role in which these interactions play in case outcomes cannot be overstated.

Along with founding partner Steven P. Grant, who served as the Dobbs Ferry village justice from 2003-2017, Mr. Longworth has assembled an elite team of attorneys, investigators and support staff who stand ready to do everything within the law to fight the criminal charges against you. 

New York, Connecticut and Federal Criminal Defense

Grant & Longworth attorneys have extensive experience representing criminal defendants in a wide variety of forums. We routinely represent those facing charges in local (cities, towns and villages), state, and federal courts.

Remain Silent. And Retain an Attorney

If you have been charged with a crime, or you have reason to believe that criminal charges may be forthcoming, NEVER agree to speak with the police or a prosecutor without an attorney present. If you do not have an attorney, we are standing by. A call will put you in touch with Mr. Longworth himself or another experienced Westchester criminal defense attorney, not a switchboard or maze of support staff.
