Cortlandt Town Court

The Town of Cortlandt is a suburb of New York City located in northwestern Westchester County. It includes the villages of Croton-on-Hudson and Buchanan and the hamlets of Montrose, Crugers, Verplanck and part of Mohegan Lake. Cortlandt Manor is all of the Town of Cortlandt not included in either of the villages or the hamlets and is quite large. It surrounds the City of Peekskill except for the Hudson River to the west.

The Town was incorporated in 1788 and is composed of 34.5 square miles with a population of roughly 37,000. Noteworthy features include the Croton-Harmon railroad station and yard, a major hub for the Hudson line of the Metro-North Railway, and Croton Dam, one of the largest hand hewn dams in the world, both located in Croton-on-Hudson. Cortlandt Manor is home to the Hudson Valley Medical Center and Blue Mountain Reservation. The Cortlandt Town Center Shopping Center is located in Mohegan Lake. Montrose houses the sprawling campus of the FDR Veteran’s Hospital. Verplanck hosts a very large and popular Italian Festival each year sponsored by the Mount Carmel Society. Buchanan has the dubious distinction of being the home of the Indian Point Energy Center with its three unit nuclear power plants.

Cortlandt (Cortlandt Manor, Crugers, Verplanck and part of Mohegan Lake) is patrolled mostly by the New York State Police and the Westchester County Police. Croton-on-Hudson and Buchanan each have their own village police forces. The crime index (risk of crime) in Cortlandt Manor is less than that for Westchester County as a whole and only one-fifth as high as the U.S. generally. The majority of crimes handled in the local courts are DUI/DWI (driving under the influence or driving while intoxicated), assault, harassment, petit larceny and trespass. The courthouse is located as follows:

If you are a suspect or arrested for a crime it is vital that you obtain legal representation as soon as possible.

They are typically intimidated by the police and completely unaware of their rights or how to exercise them. The Law Office of Jared Altman can assist you throughout every stage of the proceeding. Mr. Altman will personally handle the details of your case from its initial investigation through trial and appeal if warranted. He will assert your rights and ensure that you are afforded every benefit the criminal justice system can be made to offer an accused.
