Our commitment to N.J. criminal law is no secret, and we’re repeatedly recognized for it. In 2017 alone, our team earned two coveted spots amongst SJ Magazine’s Top Attorneys 2017, were honored by Super Lawyers Magazine as “Rising Stars,” and two of our attorneys became certified by the New Jersey Supreme Court as criminal trial attorneys — a distinction only 300 out of 40,000 lawyers statewide have earned.
Our competitive advantage comes from hands-on experience working for the other side. As former county prosecutors, we strategically consider the prosecutor’s perspective when preparing your case to develop the most comprehensive defense possible. Our expertise in New Jersey criminal law is expansive and includes:
In New Jersey, people younger than 18 years old who commit crimes are considered juveniles and are tried in the family part of superior court. Although the law is designed to protect children rather than punish them, it’s not uncommon for prosecutors to argue children should be tried as adults — especially if they are repeat offenders. When that happens, children are “waived” to adult court and face the same punishments as an adult would. Having a criminal record can be detrimental for your child and could prevent them from going to college or getting a job. As your criminal lawyer, it’s our job to protect your son or daughter and ensure they are treated fairly and in a way that will help them become productive, law-abiding adults.
