My Mission

My Mission: White Plains Criminal Defense Lawyer

Defending Your Rights after an Arrest

You have just been arrested. Your reputation in our community, your education, your career, your family life, and your financial status have been up-ended and thrown into disarray. You feel frightened, confused, and unsure where to turn for help . You need to make some quick decisions, the first of which is who to hire as a White Plains criminal defense lawyer.

Call The Law Office of John M. Cromwell. I have devoted nearly a quarter century, my entire career, to defending people in your position. There was a day shortly after I began my work in criminal defense, when I saw human beings trapped behind bars, pacing back and forth like animals in a zoo. I was disgusted, and made it my purpose in life to protect the dignity and freedom of my fellow human beings against such barbarity. My mission is to help you, and I will be available for questions, guidance and representation any time you need me.

Whether you want to demand a full trial or seek a dismissal of the charges , or if you want to avoid going to court by having the case resolved quickly and discreetly, I will completely and honestly answer all your questions, make sure you understand all your options, and help you get through this process as painlessly as possible.

I charge a fair rate and will work with you to figure out a payment plan that you can afford. Retaining private legal representation is an investment in your freedom and your future success, and money should not prevent you from availing yourself of the finest legal defense available.

Getting a good deal from the District Attorney depends on a variety of factors, including the strength of the DA's case, the nature of the charges and whether it is a felony or a misdemeanor, the existing criminal record and background of the defendant, and the reputation the defendant's lawyer has for getting results in and out of the courtroom.

Resolving the charges against you depends on persuading the court of your innocence and helping them understand that you are not a threat to society. I will obtain a complete picture of your background and accomplishments, from your family life to your education and professional life and any contributions you have made to the community, as well as letters of reference and testimony about your character. This information is useful to present to the prosecutor and the judge so that they view you in the most positive light when considering a plea bargain or dropping the charges.

Fighting to Get Results for My Clients

If your goal is to defeat the charges by having them dismissed, I will thoroughly investigate your case, studying the police report, interviewing witnesses, and placing records and evidence under subpoena. There are several ways to fight criminal charges, and I will examine the situation from every angle to develop the most effective strategy for attacking the prosecutor's case against you. Countless individuals sitting in jail or prison today are there despite having their Constitutional rights violated in the investigation and arrest, and scores of others are behind bars after a false conviction. I will do everything in my power to probe the strength of the DA's evidence and fight to clear your name.
