Criminal Defense & Town/Village Code Violations

Criminal Charges

Being charged with a criminal offense can be a life-changing event. Whether you are accused of a misdemeanor or a felony, your reputation may suffer and you may lose your job. Prosecutors have almost infinite resources for prosecuting a case and more defendants are convicted than are acquitted. Depending on the seriousness of the charges, if convicted, you could be facing months or years in prison, years of probation and/or be ordered to pay a hefty fine. With your whole future at stake, you need to contact an experienced criminal defense attorney to fight for you.

Code Violations

Municipalities are cracking down on code violations.  It can be unsettling to have to go to court and appear in front of a judge due to a violation of a Village or Town Code.  Jay Golland has the experience both prosecuting and defending code violations to help you through the process.

Jay Golland, Attorney at Law, is located in West Nyack, NY and serves all of Rockland County as well as some areas in Westchester County and Orange County. He has been in the practice of law for over 20 years and spent some of several years as a prosecuting attorney and criminal investigator.

It is important that you do not speak to anyone about your case except for an attorney. That includes law enforcement, your family and friends or a cell mate.

He listens compassionately without judgment to your view of what happened. He can obtain all discoverable evidence and knows when to consult with defense investigators and experts.

He fights to be sure your state and federal constitutional rights are preserved and acts at all times only in your best interest. If that means negotiating for reduced charges or penalties, Attorney Golland is a good negotiator. If taking your case to trial is a better option, he will vigorously defend you in the courtroom. Although there are no guarantees in the legal system, you can rest knowing that the best fight possible is being waged on your behalf.
