When you are considering hiring a criminal defense lawyer, you should weigh whether the lawyer has experience handling similar criminal charges and whether he or she is backed by a team with the resources to pursue an investigation wherever it leads.
Our criminal attorneys have the necessary experience to defend you against serious criminal charges. We appear in superior courts and municipal courts on behalf of clients on a nearly daily basis. As seasoned Morris County criminal defense lawyers, we understand what needs to be done to protect your rights.
If you are facing a criminal charge for the first time, don’t make the rookie mistake of trying to deal with criminal charges on your own without an experienced Morris County criminal defense lawyer standing beside you. As former prosecutors ourselves, we have seen many defendants receive harsh sentences because they did not have experienced legal counsel to negotiate on their behalf for a more just outcome. Don’t make that mistake. You need the help of a criminal attorney who knows the ropes and the Morris County court system. Without legal counsel, you could get pressured by prosecutors into agreeing to an unfair plea agreement.
