Atlantic County NJ Drug Crimes Lawyer
If you are facing criminal charges in Atlantic County for possession of drugs or paraphernalia, or for distribution of any type of controlled substance, such as heroin, cocaine, or marijuana, New Jersey law dictates potentially serious penalties. You could be facing possibilities such as losing your driver’s license, being sentenced to probation or community service, paying thousands of dollars in fines, and even significant jail time. Being convicted for a drug-related offense will also affect your life and your future because criminal convictions can often limit your future job opportunities and even your ability to further your education. Having a criminal conviction on your record can bar you from being considered for certain jobs or prevent you from working in entire fields, make you ineligible for certain security clearances once you do find gainful employment, and hinder your ability to qualify for student loans. At the Law Offices of Jonathan F. Marshall, our highly skilled and knowledgeable attorneys will put their years of experience to work for you, in order to carefully determine the best possible approach to your case and skillfully navigate the best possible outcome on your behalf.
