Firm Overview

For nearly a decade, the Law Office of Yvonne Garbett has been providing aggressive criminal defense and family law services for families living in New City and the greater New York metropolitan area. Whether our clients are adults or minor children, we are always completely committed to protecting their rights.

An Accessible Criminal Defense Lawyer and Family Law Attorney for New City and the State of New York

When we say we’re accessible, we mean two things. First of all, we are always available to speak with our present and future clients. No matter what time of day it is or what day of the year it may be, we welcome your calls and your questions about your legal issue. We make sure that our clients have our cell phone number and encourage them to use it whenever necessary. Secondly, we pride ourselves on being relaxed and friendly when dealing with our clients. Once we get to court, we will fight ruthlessly for their rights and interests, but around the office, it’s a different story. You should have a chance to discuss your legal issue with an attorney  in an environment that’s free of judgement or intimidation, and that’s exactly what we offer our clients. We believe that by remaining available to our clients and treating them with the same respect we would want if we were in their shoes, we’re establishing a meaningful relationship that allows information to flow both ways. Clients who trust us and open up to us about their legal issues get better results than those who don’t, but that’s not going to happen if we’re hard to get a hold of or treating them poorly.

Much of the work we do at the Law Office of Yvonne Garbett involves juveniles and their parents. We have helped many minor children who have been accused of delinquent acts receive treatment for drugs, alcohol, or behavioral issues as opposed to going to a youth detention facility or suffering other consequences. We have genuine compassion for kids who have been arrested, and we like to think that this empathy shows in the results we get for them in court. By working with the criminal justice system instead of simply trying to secure a plea bargain as quickly as possible, we get better long-term results for juveniles and can frequently keep them from establishing a lifelong relationship with the New York criminal justice system.
