Violent Crime Cases Handled by Our Violent Criminal Defense Lawyers in Haddonfield, NJ

Title 2C of the New Jersey Code of Criminal Justice contains the definitions, penalties, evidentiary requirements, and other relevant information about criminal charges in New Jersey.

Violent acts – even simple threats of violence – can lead to a conviction for a violent crime, and such convictions can have serious consequences on you for the rest of your life. Our team of experienced New Jersey violent crime attorneys will build a strong and compelling facts-based defense for you based on cases involving:

  • Murder, attempted murder, or manslaughter
  • Aggravated assault
  • Armed robbery
  • Kidnapping
  • Serious sex crimes
  • Vehicular homicide

Of these, murder is the most serious violent crime that you can be charged with, and it comes with the —harshest penalties meted out by the criminal justice system. To be charged with murder as a first-degree crime, the prosecution must prove that you knowingly or purposely killed someone or you injured someone so severely to result in death, or that you caused the death of someone else while committing another violent crime, such as sexual assault, armed robbery, or arson.

In violent crime cases, intent is a primary determinant of the charges you face. First-degree murder charges typically require that you intended to kill someone else. However, felony-level murder charges can still be applied even if there was no intent to kill someone but only if the prosecution can prove that you committed another serious felony crime intentionally and that someone was killed in the process.

Based on the case facts, whether you are charged with murder, manslaughter, arson, robbery, or another violent crime, we will gather evidence and help you understand your rights and the charges you face. We will also break down our legal strategy for you so that you know what to expect as your case proceeds and what we will do along the way to preserve your rights and freedom.
