Amazing lawyer
I was charged with a crime that I absolutely did not commit and hired Jeremy Saland. No matter what I shared or was willing to provide, the DA’s Office still moved forward. Although they made me an offer, I rejected it because I would not admit to anything I did not do even if it meant I would avoid a conviction for the worst charges. After months of stress and anxiety, we went to trial. Even though I knew I was innocent, my fear was that much worse because a jury would decide my fate and I could have ended up incarcerated and a “criminal”. Jeremy worked unbelievably hard, was accessible, and was in contact with me at all hours. After an almost two week-long trial, the jury acquitted me of all the charges. The level of terror I had throughout this process was only second to the degree of relief when the foreperson said “not guilty” for each count. If not for Jeremy believing in me, if not for Jeremy fighting for me, if not for Jeremy being a great lawyer, I would likely be in a jail cell for a crime I did not commit. Jeremy is a compassionate man and when I needed someone to go to war for me, I was grateful and lucky to have Jeremy at my side.

Lifesaver!
Jeremy represented me with getting an order of protection from family court against my ex, my ex went later fabricated a story that was demonstrably false and had me arrested. With time and effort, Jeremy was able to convince the prosecutor to dismiss the case on the merits despite my ex and her counsel aggressively pursuing the false allegations. Unfortunately, there is an assumption because I was the man that I was culpable for wrongdoing when I was always the victim. It is that much harder to exonerate yourself when the lies are pursued so vigorously by the other side and the prosecutor’s first instinct is to believe the accuser. Nevertheless, Jeremy was relentless yet calm in his efforts to see that true justice was served, the DA dismissed my case on the merits because I had done absolutely nothing wrong, and to keep my family court order of protection against my ex in place so she could no longer abuse me.

The best lawyer out there!
I cannot speak more highly of Jeremy Saland and his law firm. Jeremy not only did a wonderful job for my case that was ultimately dismissed but he made feel comfortable from the first time I spoke with him. He never made any promises other than working hard but reassured me that everything was going to be OK whenever I became anxious (which was a lot!). I initially came to Jeremy in a complete mess not knowing about my future after a woman I met said that I tried to extort her and the NYPD arrested me. Jeremy went through the allegations against me and we discussed my options and issues that I would face. Jeremy was right about everything. He and his associate were responsive and punctual in court, they answered my questions, and now my case is dismissed. Jeremy is now a friend of my family and proved why he is one of the best lawyers who knows his way around the criminal justice system.

Exceptional NY Criminal Attorney
I was returning to my home state travelling through LGA airport with my father’s military issued handgun in a locked case, in a locked suitcase. Prior to going to the airport, I had checked with TSA and I had checked with the airline. I declared the handgun at the check-in counter with the airline. However, although on Federal land, I didn’t realize that LGA came under the jurisdiction of the laws of NYC and the Port Authority of NY. I was not licensed to carry a handgun in NYC. I was charged with criminal possession of a firearm, both a felony and a misdemeanor, in the fall of 2020. Jeremy Saland was recommended to me and answered my call. From our very first conversation, he was calm, understanding and reassuring. Throughout all of my discussions, Jeremy provided guidance and support, instilled unwavering trust and confidence. He was also very patient, as the process had changed to accommodate Covid-19 with virtual arraignments and court appearances. When you need a NY criminal attorney, Jeremy is the attorney you want to represent you. I came to understand and appreciate his exceptional ability in navigating the Queens DA’s office, both procedure and personnel. In the end, both charges were dismissed, and the records sealed. Even more remarkably, Jeremy was able to return my father’s handgun to me, an extraordinary accomplishment and one that I will be forever grateful. There is no other NY criminal attorney. Jeremy Saland, and the law firm of Crotty Saland PC, is your best insurance policy.

Thanks to Jeremy...
Dealing with the legal side of having false allegations made against you is a living nightmare. Having someone you love do it makes the pain twice as bad. Jeremy did an immeasurable job at making sure he had the right arguments in place to expose the truth and have my case dismissed. While I was an emotional wreck who couldn’t think clearly, he was there to hear me and continue to stay the logical course in tackling the order of protection case against in the best possible way. The plaintiff, who works in one of the biggest national law firms and who’s partner is himself a notable international litigator that teaches at Harvard, couldn’t fight the logical arguments Jeremy made by citing various cases. I admit I was nervous during the whole process only because of the grand legal resources the plaintiff had, but Jeremy proved that his ability to correctly analyze a situation combined with his in-depth legal knowledge would prevail. I was lucky to find Jeremy. Anyone who hires him will be in great hands as well.

A Brilliant Attorney and a Wonderful Person
When a member of your family is accused of a false allegation and is facing sanctions that can effect the rest of their lives, retaining the best counsel for the job is critical. We did our due diligence and hired the best legal counsel for our issue. Jeremy Saland is that lawyer. Jeremy is a fierce and brilliant litigator who understands the system. Our issue was a Title IX case, which requires a very specific set of skills. Jeremy immediately jumped into action and quickly began to unravel a complex situation with multiple witnesses and hundreds of pages of statements. Jeremy put together a strong defense and strategy to unwind false statements, lies and fabricated situations. During the hearing, Jeremy picked apart every nuance of the false allegations and in cross examination, exposed the lies and unfounded claims. When the decision came back from the Title IX panel, Jeremy's incredible work won the case. Just as important as having brilliant legal counsel, is to have a person who is understanding and communicative. Jeremy is always available and kept us up to date on every aspect of the case. He made our whole family feel protected and in the best hands possible. We can't say enough good things about our experience with Jeremy Saland. There are times in a person's life where a single event could have a dramatic impact on your future. Jeremy Saland is the person you want by your side fighting for you when need it the most. We cannot thank Jeremy enough for being there for us and helping to turn a horrible situation into a tremendous win.

Incredibly Grateful for Jeremy Saland
I am incredibly grateful for Jeremy Saland and his efforts to resolve my arrest for criminal contempt and a family court order of protection, along with a violation of the restraining order, without any finding of wrongdoing in both courts. Without going into detail, my ex and I had broken up and both of us behaved immaturely and irresponsibly in our communications. After being served by the sheriff in Manhattan with a petition and order of protection, I immediately called my ex without reading exactly what I received. When I started to review it, I hung up immediately, but the damage was done. My ex then went to the police and filed a report against me for contempt and she and her attorney also went back to family court to file against me for violating the order because I made “contact”. After speaking to some attorneys, I hired Jeremy. Immediately after hiring him, Jeremy got to work building our defense, of which some was rightfully offense. We filed our own article 8 petition against her for her conduct and challenged the contempt charge. After months of back and forth, despite the claims and three different cases in two courts, the prosecutor offered me a plea to a civil infraction (no criminal record) to take care of the entire criminal case. My case closed without a criminal record. In family court, both my ex and I agreed to mutual orders of protection for one year without any admissions or findings. This resolved both of my two outstanding cases. Jeremy was strategic and calculated. When the other attorney tried to claim I was prevented from fighting my cases in family court because of the deal I received in criminal court, Jeremy responded with a motion to beat that falsehood back. As much as neither I nor my ex likely wanted to find ourselves in this spot, and I am hopeful we can both move forward in healthy way wherever our lives may go, but for Jeremy I would potentially have a criminal record and a decision by a judge in family court. This result would not be fair nor accurately describe what occurred, but sometimes that happens when you do not have good counsel. For me, and anyone else in a similar situation in either family or criminal court, Jeremy is that person you need at your side and who has your back.

Scared, but Jeremy delivered!
I cannot begin to explain how frightened and scared I was when my husband called me to tell me he had been detained by the police at JFK airport. Not realizing the law in New York and accidentally having taken his firearm with him from Florida on a boat he sailed to NYC for training, TSA stopped him when he put his bag through screening to fly home. He had no intention of hiding anything or breaking the law but the port authority police handcuffed him and took him into custody for what was an honest mistake. Fast forward, my family found Jeremy. He was calm and reassuring during one of the most difficult times in our lives. He explained what he thought would happen and how he would get past the felony charge without serving jail time. He even was able to maintain my husband's clean record, clean! Jeremy never promised a result but he did promise he would work hard. Though he was busy at times he answered all of our questions (sometimes we would tag team with questions) and calmed our nerves. Most importantly, in the end Jeremy delivered just like he said he would. The lesson that is most important is don't forget to take any weapons out of your bag when travelling through the airport (especially in New York!) The penalties are real!!! The second lesson is if you do, consider Jeremy. My family and I are glad that we did!

Thank you Jeremy!
My family hired Jeremy in the summer of 2023 after i was charged with a weapons felony charge in New York. He was listed as one of the top attorneys in the state and for good reason. From that first conversation Jeremy instilled confidence in my situation and he showed his expertise in this area. He was straight forward and honest throughout the entire process regarding my charges and what to expect moving forward. He immediately outlined a strategy that we went forward with, ultimately resulting in the case against me being dismissed within 3 weeks. Jeremy does incredible work and I highly recommend him to anyone dealing with criminal matters. He’s trustworthy and skillful.

Thank you Jeremy!
Unfortunately, amid the the pandemic, I suffered a severe decline in my mental health and a worsening of existing substance abuse issues. Unfortunately, my descent culminated in a psychotic episode during which I committed offenses that would have been unthinkable had I been in my normal state of mind. When I was arrested, the initial charges were staggering, and included felony violent offenses against law enforcement. Frightened and unable to cope with the new reality I was facing, my family and I worked hard to find a criminal defense attorney who was able to grasp the complexities of my case and who had the knowledge and experience to best position myself for the most favorable outcome possible. From the start, Jeremy was nothing short of a God send. Although the prosecution initially did not view bail as applicable to my case, Jeremy was able to secure my release from jail on the condition that I immediately entered intensive in-patient treatment at an out-of-state rehabilitation program. During my four months at this center, Jeremy worked closely with program staff and the court, and was in constant communication with my family. Jeremy ultimately was able to negotiate a plea deal under which I pled guilty to only one felony attempt charge. If I upheld my end of the bargain as outlined in the deal for the prescribed term, all charges were to be dropped at its conclusion, and my case would be dismissed in the interests of justice. I am incredibly grateful to say that this is exactly what occurred. Jeremy persuaded the court, the prosecutor, and representatives from the “Alternatives to Incarceration” program that my charges resulted from a mental health crisis, and were not indicative of my character, or the likelihood of future offenses. Given the multiple alleged felonies I was facing, and the very real possibility of prison time, the fact that today I enjoy freedom, stability and recovery is a testament to Jeremy’s competence. More than ensuring I avoided a criminal record, Jeremy provided myself and my family with peace of mind and confidence throughout an incredibly difficult time. I recommend Jeremy Saland without reservation to anybody caught in the web of the criminal justice system. Jeremy’s character, integrity, and skill are second to none.

Amazing work by an amazing attorney
I was in a terrifying and scary case involving charges of PL 130.25 and faced the possibility of SORA registration and going to jail even though I had no record. Before going to Saland Law, I first went to another law firm after the lawyers there said they would take care of my case. On my first day in court, a different lawyer showed up and discussed me taking a plea for a crime I didn’t commit. After wasting money and time with a law firm that couldn’t handle my case, I hired Jeremy. It was the best decision hands down. He showed the flaws in the prosecutor’s case and my accuser’s story and how the inconsistencies confirmed my innocence. After Jeremy met with the prosecutor and his boss multiple times, and presented evidence, the DA’s Office backed off their criminal position and made me an offer to disorderly conduct. As Jeremy explained, this is not a crime, won’t leave me with a record, and will seal. Though I considered fighting the case to trial, I realized this was the smart and responsible way to end a case where I had enormous risk and a chance I could have been convicted by a jury. Jeremy’s extensive experience as a criminal lawyer and previously as a prosecutor really shined bright. He was prudent, patience, deliberate, smart, and had great foresight. Just the way he spoke with me was reassuring emotionally and in terms of our legal position. I highly suggest Jeremy Saland. He’s top class in his field.

Misdemeanor Weapons Charge
I hired Jeremy in the summer of 2022 to help defend me against a misdemeanor weapons charge. My research on top-rated defense attorneys led me to call him on a Sunday evening, and he not only took my call, but he then expertly guided me on what I was actually charged with, what to expect and more importantly, he outlined a potential strategy for our defense. Leading up to the court date, Jeremy was always available, kept me informed of what to expect, and possible outcomes. Jeremy built such an effective defense that my charge was dismissed through an ACD - which is like winning the lottery. I would highly recommend Jeremy and his team to support anyone in the state of New York that is faced with a criminal charge and needs a rockstar defense lawyer .

No better attorney to have on your side than Jeremy Saland...
I could never have imagined that my special needs son would be arrested and thrust us into into a world we had no idea how to navigate. Thank G-D we were introduced to Jeremy Saland. From the start of this nightmare it was obvious Jeremy had the experience, judgment, and respected presence to skillfully move this case along to a just end. Jeremy was able to articulate everything in an extremely logical and patient way while also being extremely genuine and caring. I will never forget how he didn’t speak “to” or “at” my son, but “with” my son in order to calm and reassure him. Jeremy understands the bottom line and he was creative in the way he steered us along to make sure we got to where my son needed to be. I am forever grateful and appreciative and wanted to say that there is no better attorney to have on your side and help you in your darkest hour. Jeremy wasn’t just “there” for us 24/7, his experience and character shined when we needed it most.

Saved my life
I couldn’t speak higher of Jeremy Saland and his law-firm. I made a terrible mistake due to not understanding firearm laws differing by state. I came to New York just for a couple hours to celebrate my buddy’s birthday and found myself in jail and facing 3.5 to 15 years in state prison for Second Degree Criminal Possession of a Weapon (NYPL 265.03), because I had brought my legally owned and registered out of state gun to Manhattan. If I would have known the VERY strict gun laws of New York I would not have done so. I brought my firearm to NYC because I always bring my firearm with me everywhere. When I went to a Manhattan club with my friend, I had it in my bag when I went through security. After the police were called and they arrested me, a family member reached out to Jeremy and I did once I was out jail after seeing a judge. From the beginning, Jeremy didn’t sugar coat anything but he also did not try to scare or frighten me. He told me what WE - he and I - were up against and that he couldn’t promise anything but to work as hard as he could and to protect me and my future. I worked so hard to build my life and for it to be jeopardized off of one mistake made me sick to my stomach. Jeremy always calmed me down by telling me he would do absolutely everything he could as an attorney to keep my life going on the right path while giving me updates about what was going on in my case. The first time I walked into court with Jeremy and met with the prosecutor to discuss my case, I knew I picked the right lawyer. His reputation was monumental, just as his knowledge was too. I could go on and on about how Jeremy saved my life but to sum it up, Jeremy did everything in his power to keep my liberty and to keep a criminal record at bay. He understands that a scenario doesn’t define who you are as a person and he will make every effort to share that in a compelling way to the DA. After multiple court appearances and the DA not letting up, Jeremy was able to get me a disorderly conduct violation. YES a violation, not a felony, not a misdemeanor, not a criminal record. Jeremy gave me the second chance I need and I’ll forever be great full for that. If you need someone that understands and is willing to fight for you, call Jeremy.

Public defender vs paid attorney
By all means, if you cannot afford an attorney, you should absolutely have one assigned to you or use the services of a public defender. If you can, however; get money from a friend or a family member to hire a private attorney to defend you, I highly recommend Jeremy Saland. The issues: * You will remain in jail longer without a private attorney as you wait for New York State to assign you one. * There have been numerous studies that have shown hiring a private attorney to defend you vs. a public defender can reduce your sentence. * A private attorney lives and dies off of his success for you, his client. The measurement of what success is for a private attorney, like Jeremy, vs. a public defender is vastly different. If a public defender loses, he goes home and goes back to work the next day. If a private attorney cannot do what he promises you, then he loses business now and in the future. Which of these two are more committed to helping you with your case? And then there are attorneys such as Mr. Saland. Mr. Saland became aware of my situation very early on and made contact with the local police authorities to discuss the matter with them, professionally. Domestic disputes, especially over child custody, can become extremely ugly. It takes someone who has the ability to take in the situation and analyze it properly to understand it from a neutral perspective and evaluate it. That's exactly what Jeremy did and in my case, the charges were thrown out. It takes someone who understands what it's like be sitting from the prosecuter's side of things because he was a DA. This is why I hired Mr. Saland and I'm so glad I did.

The best choice I could have made
I’m a woman and a victim of sexual assault at my university institution. As I broke up with my abusive partner who had previously assaulted me, she decided to preemptively make a false (and enormously violent) accusation against me to our university in the form of a Title IX/Gender-Based Misconduct and Dating Violence complaint. The university, in response, suspended me and upended my entire life before I could explain. The police were notified. I had to grapple with being assaulted, and now being accused of the same violation that had really happened to me. I don’t have the language express how grateful I am that Jeremy was there every step of the way - proactively, professionally, and compassionately. He scheduled a meeting with NYPD, who immediately closed their investigation due to our presentation of evidence that contradicted my abuser’s false allegations and placed her at a different location entirely during that time. He helped me file my own complaint against my abuser at my school and worked tirelessly against prejudiced and amorphous university standards for a whopping 5 months while I continued to be banned from my dorm. He navigated complex issues related to DACA and HIPAA that the university was simply incompetent to address, as my abuser wound herself around new and increasingly-impossible allegations. When finally presented with both of our cases, the university adjudicator determined my total innocence, and my abuser’s degree has been suspended for two years upon the determination that she was responsible for assaulting me. I have graduated, and my life can start in earnest thanks to Jeremy. He sincerely cares about the truth, and was incredibly nonjudgmental in my seeking his help as an LGBT woman. The shame and shock of this experience was traumatic, but it would have been insurmountable had I not had Jeremy. He is a brilliant thinker (there were more than 500 pages of moving parts to this case by its conclusion) and he was able to take my honest narrative and turn it into a compelling and sincere case. It’s no small thing that he has a sharp sense of humor as well and managed to even bring out my own, which is now something I believe was priceless. I cannot recommend him enough.

I was the victim of criminal harassment and stalking and within one week, Jeremy resolved the situation. We discussed several approaches, decided on the best one, and Jeremy fully delivered in the form of a legal memo that clearly and unequivocally laid out the basis of our complaints and the potential consequences should the person not get treatment. It was exactly what was needed and totally effective. He was communicative, pleasant and most importantly, fully delivered.

"I endorse this lawyer. Jeremy was well regarded in the DA's office when I worked with him and has maintained a strong reputation following his transition to criminal defense. He's a persuasive, no-nonsense advocate who knows what juries and judges are looking for. He's done well by his clients, better than most criminal defense lawyers I know."

"I have known Jeremy since our days as fellow prosecutors in the Manhattan District Attorney's Office, where Jeremy was highly respected for his courtroom skills and knowledge of the criminal law. Since bringing those skills and knowledge to private practice, he has obtained outstanding results for his clients. In fact, when one of my civil litigation clients was arrested, and I was prevented from representing him due to a conflict of interests, I referred the case to Jeremy. Jeremy did a fantastic job and got all of the charges against my client case dismissed. Needless to say, my client and I were both very pleased and impressed with Jeremy's abilities, work ethic, and integrity throughout the entire process. Should a similar situation arise in the future, I would not hesitate to refer my client to Jeremy."
