If you are charged with a criminal offense or a driving violation involving serious consequences, an aggressive defense must be mounted. The defense may include engaging the State in extensive discovery, conferring with expert witnesses and filing suppression of illegally obtained evidence.
Whether you have been accused of speeding or an alleged homicide, you owe it to yourself to meet with a respected legal advocate who can help you achieve a satisfactory resolution. Without proper defense, you may find yourself on the hook for thousands of dollars in fines, a suspended license, or even time in jail. It is not worth risking these penalties. Your best bet is to meet with a respected criminal defense attorney as soon as you can.

Crimes in the state of New Jersey can be divided into three primary categories: petty disorderly person offenses, disorderly person offenses, and indictable crimes. Petty disorderly person offenses are the least serious crimes, while indictable crimes are the most serious. Depending on the crime’s category and nature, you may face a variety of different penalties for a conviction, including fines and/or incarceration.
If you have been charged with a crime, you can choose to represent yourself in court, accept representation from a public defender or hire a private criminal attorney to represent you in the case. Because the stakes in a criminal case are so high, hiring your own experienced attorney is generally recommended. An attorney who has experience with criminal defense will be able to help you collect evidence, locate witnesses and prepare your testimony for court. If the prosecution offers a plea deal during the case, your criminal attorney will also be able to help you evaluate the deal and make the best possible decision.
