Criminal Defense Law in Haddonfield, NJ
The sentences you can face for crimes in New Jersey are based on the type, severity, and number of the charges in question, as well as any priors you may have on record. Irrespective of the nature of your charges, we are your dedicated, go-to legal professionals. We gather evidence for our clients, help them understand the various laws that apply to their cases, and walk them through what to do and what to expect as their case progresses through the justice system. We have experience handling a wide range of crimes in New Jersey, as outlined in the sections below.
Domestic Violence Charges
Domestic violence usually involves aggressive criminal or harmful behavior of some type toward another person in the aggressor’s household. Domestic violence charges are very common, and if you are convicted, you can face harsh penalties. These include jail time, restraining and/or protective orders, fines, and the loss of various rights and freedoms, such as the ability to own a firearm or even vote.
Domestic violence charges can range from battery and strangulation to confinement, intimidation, stalking, and an invasion of someone’s privacy. Proving domestic violence, however, is sometimes easier said than done, and proving such charges means that strict evidence requirements beyond one victim’s word against their aggressor will have to be met. We have the skills and knowledge needed to work around domestic violence charges to maximize your chances of beating them.
Drugs and Gun Charges
Whether or not you knew you were in the possession of a prohibited item or one that was obtained illegally is a central factor of any drug or gun charge or claim. To be convicted of gun and/or drug charges, the prosecution must either demonstrate that you had actual possession and direct physical control of prohibited items or that you had constructive possession of such items, which means you had indirect but provable control over those dangerous or illegal substances or objects. The penalties for these charges can be harsh, as outlined in NJ Rev Stat § 2C:39-4.1 (2013), and should not be taken lightly.
As with domestic violence charges, proving direct or constructive possession or control can be difficult, and our criminal lawyers in Haddonfield, NJ can bring the charges you face into serious question. We will also pursue motions to suppress, which means we can try to show that your rights were violated in some way, making any evidence gained from such a violation inadmissible.
Our criminal lawyers in Haddonfield, NJ build trusting relationships with our clients. Sex offenses come with some of the harshest penalties in New Jersey law. We can help you overcome a wide range of sex offenses and charges, including:
- Sex crimes involving minors
- Rape and aggravated rape
- Sexual assault
Our criminal lawyer in Haddonfield, NJ will make sure that the prosecution is forced to meet all of the legal and evidentiary requirements for securing a conviction, failing which you can potentially have your charges dismissed if they are not proven beyond a reasonable doubt.
DUI, DWI, and Intoxicated Driving Charges
There are many ways New Jersey criminal defense lawyers can help you beat driving, DUI, and DWI charges, such as investigating whether the police had the right to pull you over, whether a breath test was warranted, whether the arresting officer was a qualified drug expert, and whether all relevant processes and tests were performed correctly and within the required time frames. Question marks of any kind on any aspect of your case can be used by our criminal lawyers in Haddonfield, NJ to discredit or dismiss the charges you face.
We can also help you overcome charges for other serious crimes in New Jersey, from white collar crimes to violent crimes and driving offenses and more.
