Defense Strategies

“The New Jersey Criminal Defense Attorneys in our firm are highly adept at challenging every detail in your arrest, and finding the loopholes that can lead your case to be dismissed.”

NJ Criminal Defense Lawyers in Essex County, Morris County, Bergen County NJ

An initial strategy in any case involves challenging each element of the “discovery” in your arrest.  The discovery is the entire file of evidence against you. It includes paperwork filed by the arresting officer, the circumstances surrounding your arrest, the probable cause for either pulling your over or searching you, and a huge array of other details.  Challenging any of the elements within your discovery could potentially lead to your case being thrown out.

If we can show that an officer didn’t have a constitutional right to stop your vehicle, to search your pockets, or if he just didn’t even have a right to be standing next to you, we can potentially have the evidence in your case suppressed.

These are just a select few of the ways that we can win cases.

If the case continues, we can take it to trial, and we are highly prepared for any day in the court-room.  We will evaluate any plea bargains that are offered, and if none are acceptable, we fight to completely dismantle the state’s case against you in court.
