Criminal Defense

Defending Clients Charged with Crimes throughout Monmouth County, New Jersey

Whether you were arrested for "possession of controlled dangerous substance" or "intent to distribute", or "possesssion of marjuana less than 60 grams", or cited for driving while intoxicated (DWI) or another traffic violations during a motor vehicle stop, it is importance to speak with an experienced attorney. If you were arrested for a disorderly persons offense or "aggravated assualt", accused of a sex crime or an act of domestic violence, or brought up on charges in connection with an ongoing investigation for a "white collar crime" or "theft" your current and future circumstances are immediately and inevitably changed. Your first interaction with the criminal justice system often begins with an arrest, stemming from an isolated incident or an investigation that results in a warrant. In other cases, you will receive a summons or a notice to appear in Municipal or Superior Court in connection with an alleged criminal act or motor vehicle violation. From then on, there will be numerous appearances, opportunities, and critical decisions that will spell both short and long-term implications for your life. Thoroughly understanding your rights and responsibilities during your journey is essential to achieving the best possible outcome.

Whether you have been charged with a felony (first, second, third, or fourth degree crime), a disorderly persons or petty disorderly persons offense, or a motor vehicle violation, you will soon be required to appear in Municipal or Superior Court for your first appearance. During this appearance, you will be advised of your rights, informed of the charges against you, and provided with the opportunity to enter a plea of guilty or not guilty. When charged with a crime classified as a disorderly persons offense or petty disorderly persons offense, or issued a summons for a traffic violation, you are required to appear in the Municipal Court in the municipality in which the alleged offense occurred. Conversely, when facing felony charges, your case will be reviewed by the County Prosecutor’s Office and either remanded to Municipal Court or transferred to the Superior Court for adjudication. If you are a juvenile charged with a crime, the outcome of your case will be determined in the Family Division of the Superior Court in your county of residence.

The trajectory of your journey through the criminal justice system will be significantly influenced by the nature and degree of the charges against you, as well as the venue in which your case is ultimately heard and decided. The phases of your case may include the Pre-Indictement Conference, bail hearing, and Grand Jury indictment, while your available alternatives to conviction may include a plea offer from the prosecution, or a diversionary program such as Pre-Trial Intervention, Drug Court, Conditional Discharge, or Conditional Dismissal. What occurs at these critical moments can turn the tide of your case for better or worse, underscoring the need for a knowledgeable and experienced legal counselor in your corner.
