As a New York lawyer who has devoted his entire career to the practice of criminal law, Jeremy Saland’s dedication to his clients and knowledge of the law are the foundation to his success as a New York criminal defense attorney. Jeremy began his career as a prosecutor where he served for over seven years in Robert Morgenthau’s legendary Manhattan District Attorney’s Office. In that capacity, Jeremy handled all stages of criminal cases from investigation, drafting complaints and arraigning the accused to Grand Jury presentations, motion practice and hearings and trials. Not only did Jeremy serve as an Early Case Assessment Bureau (ECAB) and intern supervisor, Mr. Morgenthau appointed Jeremy to the Identity Theft Unit and Major Case Section as one of approximately six prosecutors upon that unit’s creation.

No stranger to white collar and theft crimes, Jeremy served as lead prosecutor on many notable cases that involved frauds and larceny schemes in the millions of dollars. From his prosecution of a $2 million online penny stock “pump and dump” with the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Extortion attempt of NBA All Star Carmelo Anthony, and multiple cases with the NYPD, Secret Service, Postal Inspection Service and State Department into credit card fraud, “bust outs,” Identity Theft, and Embezzlement cases, Jeremy’s experiences as a prosecutor in the trenches has made him a better attorney today.

The training and wealth of knowledge Jeremy gained in New York City’s criminal courts as a prosecutor has served his clients - in New York City to Westchester County and beyond - well over the years. Understanding when to aggressively confront the prosecution or to gently mitigate his client’s conduct, Jeremy always keeps his client’s best interest in sight. Protecting his client’s liberty, future and career, is always his goal. To that end, Jeremy has obtained numerous favorable results for clients charged in Tax Fraud, Grand Larceny, Identity Theft and other white collar criminal schemes. While past results in no way guarantee similar outcomes in the future, Jeremy always guarantees that each case will receive his dedication and full use of his experience and skills.

Not only has Jeremy successfully avoided incarceration, felonies and even misdemeanors on behalf of some of his clients, he has also been consulted by many media outlets because of his experience and knowledge. Some of these newspapers and televisions stations include the Wall Street Journal, New York Law Journal, Reuters, and Sports Illustrated as well as ABC News and New York City’s WPIX. Beyond these outlets, Jeremy has blogged for the Vault.Com on criminal cases in the local New York City news and has spoken on behalf of the New York City Bar Association. Additionally, Jeremy served as treasurer of the New York City Bar Association’s Small Law Firm Committee.

Whether you are charged with an Embezzlement, Scheme to Defraud, Extortion, Tax Fraud or any other larceny or theft crime in New York, Jeremy Saland, and his partner, Elizabeth Crotty, are dedicated to put you in the best place to not only preserve your freedom and record today, but to protect your future, integrity and career well beyond tomorrow.
