NJ Sex Crimes Lawyers with offices in Bergen County, Essex County, Morris County
Sex offenses are some of the most serious allegations a person can ever face. Beyond the legal ramifications, accusations that relate to sex crimes create an incredible social stigma for the accused and, very often, it may feel as though they are “guilty until proven innocent.” Sexually-based offenses are incredibly complex. Many cases rest solely on a victim or witness statement, while others include complex medical or electronic evidence that is difficult to decipher. Some of the sex crimes our seasoned attorneys handle include sexual assault, criminal sexual contact, lewdness, and endangering the welfare of a child.
Unlike other crimes and defense attorneys, sex crimes attorneys have to be especially knowledgeable about the laws governing sexually-based offenses and the types of technical evidence that may be involved.
Because sex crime trials often include complicated expert testimony, a defense attorney needs experience so that he or she can competently cross examine all witnesses.
If you have been accused of a sex crime, you need a sex crime defense lawyer who has the knowledge and experience to provide you the best legal representation. The best defense attorney is one who is not intimidated by the prosecution, and can confidently challenge all aspects of the case. A good attorney will have a thorough understanding of how sex crimes are investigated and prosecuted, and will know where to turn for expert options to assist in the defense strategy.
Unfortunately, many attorneys do not want to be labeled as a “sex offender lawyer.” The attorneys at the Tormey Law Firm, however, believe that every person deserves an aggressive, comprehensive, and vigorous defense as provided by the Constitution. We know that these accusations can ruin people’s lives, and we want to be an advocate for you. We understand that, beyond the possible legal ramifications, this situation can permanently affect your good name, your interpersonal relationships, and your ability to work and volunteer in your community.
