At this stage of your case, contacting an experienced attorney is incredibly important. Even in the first weeks after your arrest, there are motions that we can file which can drastically improve the outcome of your case. Here’s an example: a case tried in Superior Court can be punished with NJ state prison time. Municipal Court cases, or cases handled at the “town” level, will usually not be punished with county prison time and you are facing significantly lower penalties.
How an Experienced Criminal Lawyer in NJ can Help
Getting the case downgraded from Superior Court to Municipal Court can play an immediate role in your expected result by reducing your potential punishment. These are steps in the right direction without even beginning the real fight against your charges. These motions are best filed soon after your arrest, so hesitation can cost you. In the same way, there are opportunities to submit motions in a municipal court case that can result in significant evidence being deemed inadmissible. For example, if police unlawfully obtained evidence by conducting a search without a warrant or probable cause, a successful motion to suppress this evidence means it can no longer be used against you in a court of law.
Tactics like these don’t apply to every case or every charge type. Every criminal charge has it’s own series of defenses that create the best results. With highly experienced New Jersey criminal defense attorneys and former NJ Municipal Court and Superior Court prosecutors fighting on your behalf, our law firm is aware of every advantage and defense strategy that you can use to potentially beat your case.
Many of these strategies are given freely within this website. Read the information that we provide on your charges. For one, you might feel more confident in your case if we describe several ways that we can beat it. You will also be aware of the penalties that you are facing, and what you have to risk if you don’t handle your case properly. We also have pages for some of our successes in court that might apply to your charge.
Why You Want our Defense Attorneys on Your Side
Having worked in multiple large firms and at the US Attorney’s office, I’ve realized that a lot of the other lawyers have stopped doing the best work for their clients. There are high level attorneys that don’t want to put real time into a case. In my time at other firms, it seemed as though many attorneys wanted to step into a meeting room with the prosecutor, and take the first deal offered. That simply doesn’t get the best result for a client. You deserve to know that your money is being well spent on your defense, and that involves a lot of very difficult and tedious work on our part.
Our seasoned NJ criminal defense lawyers will research the accuracy of the tiniest details in your discovery package, which includes all of the evidence that the prosecution has in your case. We will put every detail regarding the circumstance in which you were arrested into question. What procedures did the officer follow? Did he follow them correctly? Did he document everything correctly? Can all of the evidence and even its transfer be accounted for? Is your trial being held “expediently?” Each case has a different series of questions that can be asked and need to be answered.
The best criminal attorneys and the best DWI attorneys in New Jersey know how to attack your case, and they should be able to explain how they plan to do just that when you talk to them.
Relationships are important in New Jersey courts. It’s hard to believe, but “who you know” actually matters. The best case outcomes aren’t always gained by fighting. Whether its appearing before a judge on a regular basis, frequently negotiating with a prosecutor, or simply the reputation for being an aggressive criminal defense attorney, courtroom relationships are important. Prosecutors negotiate more readily when they think that they might walk into court and lose, and they are not going to be afraid of a mediocre attorney.

With offices in Hackensack, Morristown, Newark, New Brunswick, and Middletown, we represent clients in courts across the state on a weekly basis, including in Bergen County, Morris County, Essex County, Passaic County, Monmouth County, and Middlesex County.
