New Rochelle Lawyers

Let our Experience Serve You

At Proto, Sachs & Brown, LLP, we provide excellent legal representation in the areas of criminal defense, family law, and traffic violations. Should you need assistance with any of these areas, our legal team is fully prepared to utilize its skills and experience to help you pursue the outcome you are hoping for. With offices conveniently located in White Plains, Peekskill,and , New York, we represent clients all throughout Orange, Westchester, Putnam, Sullivan and Dutchess Counties with their legal needs.

As authors of National Bestselling books on DUI defense and criminal defense, we have the knowledge and resources you need.

Our lawyers are proud members of the criminal court and the family court assigned counsel programs. In this capacity we provide quality legal representation to those who cannot afford their own attorney but are entitled to legal representation on appeal. Regardless of these individuals' circumstances, they have legal protections under the Constitution and we fight tirelessly to protect their rights and navigate them through complex legal waters.

Criminal Defense Representation

Our firm is comprised of four skilled attorneys, three of which are former Assistant District Attorneys. All together our team has 65 years of collective experience working in the local state and federal courts. If you are facing criminal charges for a minor misdemeanor or felony crime, we have extensive experience representing clients facing misdemeanor and felony charges on the state and federal level.

We draw from our experience as former prosecutors and we use this knowledge to our clients' advantage at all times. Not only that but our time spent in the District Attorney's Office enabled us to nurture valuable relationships with local law enforcement, area-judges, and prosecutors alike. This mutual respect for our peers is extremely important when negotiating a plea bargain or when arguing a case before a judge or jury.

Although New Rochelle has an excellent crime record, or lack thereof, it doesn't mean there aren't a small percentage of individuals who get arrested for criminal offenses in the area. Not all crimes are violent in nature, nor do all crimes have a particular victim involved. Normal, everyday citizens get arrested for alcohol and drug-related DWIs all the time, while others face drug charges for possessing marijuana or drug paraphernalia or even prescription drug fraud. We represent clients in a vast array of criminal matters whether they involve misdemeanor crimes involving prostitution or financially motivated crimes such as forgery, embezzlement or another white collar crime.

With decades of experience in the local criminal courts as well as the New York Supreme Court, we know the inner workings of the court system and we are intimately familiar with all local, state and federal laws. As former prosecutors we have an advantage because we know how the prosecution operates and we know how and where to search for holes in a case. You cannot underestimate this ability and we always use this knowledge to the greatest advantage of our clients.

Dealing with a family law matter?

If you're presently dealing with a family law matter, we understand the predicament you are in. While criminal law has its moments, hardly anything compares to the emotional distress associated with divorce, asset division and more importantly child custody matters. In America, approximately half of all marriages will end in divorce; therefore, there is a great need for quality divorce attorneys and we are glad to fill this need. Our firm handles all aspects of family law and divorce ranging from prenuptial agreements to divorce, child custody and modifications of spousal support, child support, and child custody orders.

Court orders for family law matters are always subject to change; therefore, it is not unusual for people to have to go back to court to request a modification once or even numerous times years after their divorce has been finalized. No matter which stage in the process you are in, we can provide you with excellent advice and support and we will guide you through the process and fully educate you on New York State laws, and your rights and responsibilities in your specific case.

In addition to family law and criminal defense, our firm represents clients in matters pertaining to traffic violations such as reckless driving or leaving the scene of an accident. Point violations can lead to a license suspension and fines, and ignoring a ticket can have the same ramifications; therefore, it's important to hire an attorney from our firm to defend you and to fight for your license.
