How We Can Help with Your Criminal Charges

We have built our practice on the principle that every person deserves an aggressive defense attorney when faced with legal troubles. We know that facing a criminal charge is one of the most stressful situations you will ever encounter, and we are here to alleviate the stress and anxiety as much as possible. You are not alone, and you can have an aggressive advocate in your corner to get you through this process. Here are just some of the services we provide:

  • As a seasoned theft defense lawyer in New Jersey, Travis Tormey knows that no theft, burglary, robbery or shoplifting case is cut and dry. Each case needs a careful examination, and regardless of what evidence the prosecution may have against you, there are plenty of opportunities to pursue so that you gain a better outcome.
  • If you have been accused of domestic violence in NJ, we want you to know that a determined lawyer is your best asset in beating a domestic violence charge. Very often, domestic violence cases are based more on “he said/she said” than actual evidence, and Travis Tormey knows how to navigate the sensitive legal process in these cases. He knows how someone charged with domestic violence can be villianized, and he believes that you deserve dignity and respect throughout this process.
  • Are you facing a restraining order in NJ? All too often, restraining orders are granted on the word of a single party, and you may have had no say in the court proceedings. Travis Tormey believes that everyone should have a voice and be fairly represented in restraining order proceedings, and he can help you fight an unfair restraining order.
  • As a trusted DWI lawyer in New Jersey, Travis Tormey has taken his practice beyond standard DWI defense strategies by becoming a certified operator of the typical breathalyzer device used by law enforcement. Because of his training, he can challenge your DWI arrest on several aspects, and a DWI offense may be a beatable charge under the right circumstances.

Don’t trust your future to just any attorney looking to make a quick buck. Travis Tormey believes in providing you with an aggressive, comprehensive defense, and will tackle whatever criminal charges you are facing head on. When you enlist our help, you can feel secure in knowing that you have someone dedicated to protecting your interests on your side.
