Criminal Defense

Personal Injury




Since 2007 Kenyon C. Trachte, Esq. has handled all aspects of criminal defense in thousands of cases ranging from simple violations to class A felonies with many very successful outcomes.


Our office has experience with a wide range of personal injury cases where we have obtained very favorable settlements for our clients.  Working with experienced paralegals, we take each case so seriously that if the case requires more than one attorney to get the results we need, we bring in experienced outside counsel with the expertise needed at our cost.  If there is no recovery, there is no fee.



Many people often do not realize the potential ramifications of points on your license.  Not only can you be suspended, or experience enhanced car insurance costs, but the DMV may use those points in conjunction with other convictions to revoke your privilege to drive in New York for 5 to 10 years or even for life.  It is well worth it to have an attorney handle any offense where points are a possibility.


Here at Trachte Law Office PC, a small boutique firm, you will always be dealing personally with the owner Kenyon C. Trachte, Esq.  Unlike many larger firms where you may find yourself talking to paralegals or appearing in court with newly admitted attorneys, representation by a boutique law office guarantees that you will always be dealing with an experienced attorney handling your case personally from start to finish.



Kenyon Trachte graduated from Franklin and Marshall College, Lancaster, PA, with a BA in Special Studies: Expert Scientific Testimony in the Courtroom (Biochemistry – Sociology).  He received his Juris Doctorate from Dickinson School of Law, Carlisle, PA in May 2006, undertaking an Independent Study on The Federal Sentencing Guidelines and participating in Amnesty International.
In 2007 he joined his Uncle and founding member of Trachte Law Office, the now Hon. Paul Trachte, as an associate attorney, gaining diverse experience in both Criminal and Civil law by working on thousands of different types of cases involving legal research and complex issues.  Additionally, the small office size allowed him to receive direct courtroom training from one of the most highly regarded attorneys in the Hudson Valley.  A member of the New York State Bar since 2007, Kenyon was admitted to practice in Federal Court in the Southern District of New York in June of 2010.
In 2012 Kenyon became a partner in Trachte Law Office PC, and upon the founding member's departure for the bench in 2014, Kenyon took full ownership and the role of principal attorney for Trachte Law Office PC.
