Criminal Defense

If you or a loved one has been charged with a crime, it is important to obtain fast and effective legal representation. It is also important that you choose a criminal lawyer who is “an Insider” in the criminal justice world.

Stewart McMillan is a former Westchester County prosecutor, with over 20 years experience, who has defended clients charged with a wide spectrum of crimes from the most serious felonies down to more minor traffic infractions.

Our firm combines the know how of the criminal defense services of a long time New York State criminal prosecutor together with the legal acumen of several retired New York State Supreme and County Court Judges.

Mr. McMillan, and the attorneys who work for him, have defended clients in thousands of criminal cases including winning numerous not guilty verdicts after trial and obtaining numerous dismissals and reductions of criminal charges.

Our criminal defense lawyers have appeared on TV and are on a first name basis with the police, prosecutors and judges in the counties in which we appear.

Our office maintains its headquarters in Westchester County with branch offices in Manhattan County and Fairfield County, Connecticut.

All of our law offices are conveniently located just a short distance from some of the criminal courthouses which we serve, including White Plains, Stamford, Connecticut and Manhattan.

Mr. McMillan knows firsthand how prosecutors think. He knows the Bureau Chiefs who make the plea offers and he knows what drives their decisions because, as a former Westchester County prosecutor, Mr. McMillan once made those decisions himself.
