Criminal Defense Lawyers

When facing criminal charges, your life – and livelihood – could be at stake.

“When facing criminal charges, your life – and livelihood – could be at stake.”

If criminal charges are hanging over your head, it may be difficult to avoid a conviction without a skilled defense attorney on your side. Legal representation is invaluable in all forms of criminal litigation, from simple traffic tickets to assault and battery offenses. Even when it seems that the evidence of the case favors the accused and should lead to a dismissal, the State can still find ways to craft an argument that puts your liberty at risk.Not surprisingly, the most favorable court decisions (and least severe penalties, if any) will almost always come with the help of a team of legal professionals.

New Jersey DWI Defense Lawyers

“If you have been issued a ticket or summons for a DWI, a DUI, or refusal to submit to a breathalyzer test, we are here to help you”

New Jersey has very stringent laws and accompanying penalties for DWI arrests. DWI arrests can lead to having a criminal record, license suspension, raised insurance premiums, and even jail time.But although it may seem obvious that a driver can be stopped, inspected, and arrested for driving while under the influence of alcohol or marijuana, many drivers are unaware that they could also face DWI charges for driving while taking prescribed medications. Even something as simple as an over-the-counter allergy medication can result in a DWI criminal charge.

What’s worse, the penalties for medication-related DUI charges are virtually the same as those imposed for alcohol-related DWI charges.

Innocent Until Proven Guilty, Advocacy Until the End

With that said, it is important to remember that being arrested for a suspected DWI does not make the individual automatically guilty. Countless drivers are arrested every day based on the officer’s opinion, without examination of the hard evidence, and by means of flawed testing procedures caught on tape by police vehicle video surveillance systems. All of these defenses will be considered and evaluated for each client.

A DWI arrest can put your life as you know it at risk of severe consequences. For any DWI case, an experienced DWI defense lawyer is the best way to prevent these consequences from occurring.

Experienced Lawyers for Federal Indictable Offenses

If Federal charges have been filed against you, it stands to reason that your entire life, livelihood, and future is at stake.

Regardless of what the ‘facts’ of your Federal case may be, if the case has been removed to the Federal court level, trying to defend the charges on your own or with a public defender could be extremely risky.

“Regardless of what the ‘facts’ of your Federal case may be, if the case has been removed to the Federal court level, trying to defend the charges on your own or with a public defender could be extremely risky. Federal prosecution attorneys seek, and often gain, mandatory maximum fines and penalties under the law upon conviction, including lengthy prison terms, harsh fines, life-long criminal registration, and more.”

Federal charges and the accompanying trial process can be extensive. The CIA, DEA, or FBI may have been involved in the creation of your case, and crafty Federal officials will attempt to prosecute it. These agencies have a wide range of resources and years of experience to their name.
