We provide a skilled and aggressive defense to clients in Morris County and throughout northern New Jersey. Call us at 973-898-0161 for a free phone consultation.
A Proven Record in Violent Crime Defense
In more than 25 years of experience as a criminal defense trial lawyer, we have handled the most serious indictable crimes:
- Robbery and armed robbery
- Aggravated sexual assault
- Aggravated assault
- Arson resulting in injury or death
Violent crimes of the first or second degree are subject to the No Early Release Act (NERA), which requires the convicted person to serve a minimum of 85% of the prison sentence. The Graves Act sets mandatory minimum prison terms and parole disqualification for the use of or possession of a weapon while committing a crime.
We will work hard to have these enhancements removed from the equation by arguing that charges should be reduced or dismissed. We explore every angle to have evidence suppressed or charges dismissed outright. We prepare every case as if it will go to trial but exhaust every avenue to avoid that risky scenario.
