Our lawyers know how to defend a vast array of criminal charges in New Jersey. The following are just a few real life examples of successful results we have delivered to clients arrested for criminal and DUI offenses, as well as those facing restraining orders and charges for domestic violence.

Assault Charges

Due to the nature of assault crimes, these charges are often issued in conjunction with a temporary restraining order. When dealing with both elements of a domestic violence case, you will need to appear for two distinct legal proceedings, one in criminal court and one in civil court. We defended this client against the restraining order and the serious assault charges he was facing, ultimately helping him avoid significant prison time and a final restraining order.

Theft Charges

Theft and fraud offenses are classified as “crimes of moral turpitude” in New Jersey, meaning a conviction could jeopardize your immigration status. In one of the cases below, our client needed us to successfully argue a post-conviction relief motion to keep him from being deported. Even when you are a permanent U.S. citizen, a theft crime can be devastating personally and financially, which is why we fight so hard to prevent these consequences for our clients.

Drug Charges

Drug crimes are quite possibly the most prevalent source of criminal charges in Monmouth County and New Jersey. When you are charged with a drug offense, you face a host of life-altering punishments, including fines, suspension of your driver’s license, a criminal conviction on your record, and even jail time. We have helped thousands of clients arrested for drugs in cases like these:

Domestic Violence

A restraining order can change your life in so many ways, determining where you can go, where you can live, if you can see your children, and if you are allowed to possess a weapon for the rest of your life. Our attorneys fight for clients in domestic violence cases in criminal and civil court. Check out some of our recent restraining order case results.

Weapons Offenses

When facing charges for an illegal firearm in New Jersey, you face a mandatory minimum term of incarceration. Even if you have no prior criminal record and have never had an interaction with law enforcement before, being arrested for a gun can land you in prison for years. Below is one case we handled recently where we assisted a client in avoiding incarceration for an alleged violation of New Jersey Gun Laws.

Driving While Intoxicated Offenses

Although driving while intoxicated / driving under the influence charges are technically considered traffic offenses in New Jersey, the potential sentences for those convicted can be more crippling than that of some criminal offenses. They can include but are not limited to loss of license, imposition of the ignition interlock device, high fines, community service, court mandated treatment as well as a jail sentence. Below is a couple of case we handled recently where we assisted a client in avoiding a conviction for driving while intoxicated.

  • Driving While Intoxicated Dismissed  (.09% BAC) State v. E.O. (2018)
  • Driving Under the Influence Dismissed (Heroin) State v. C.M. (2018)
  • DUI Dismissed (Marijuana) State v. A.D. (2019)
  • Driving While Intoxicated Dismissed (.13% BAC) State v. J.B. (2019)
  • DWI & Refusal to Submit Breath Sample Dismissed State v. V.C. (2019)
  • Driving While Intoxicated Dismissed (.14% BAC) State v. J.C. (2020)
  • DWI Charges Dismissed (.19% BAC) State v. D.M. (2020)
  • Driving Under Influence (Drugs) Dismissed State v. K.R. (2020)
  • Driving While Intoxicated & Refusal to Submit a Breath Sample  Dismissed State v. K.S. (2020)
  • Drug DUI Dismissed Outright State v. H.L. (2020)
  • DWI Dismissed (.11% BAC) State v. L.B. (2021)

Sex Related Charges

When facing a sex related charge, whether it be sexual assault, criminal sexual contact, aggravated sexual assault, possession of child pornography or lewdness in New Jersey, you could be facing not only a mandatory prison term but also serious life long collateral consequences. Those consequences include but are not limited too: Megan’s Law Registering, Parole Supervision for Life and Community Supervision for Life. Below is some of the cases that we handled recently where we assisted client’s in avoiding incarceration.
