A major category of offenses set forth in the New Jersey Criminal Code is Assault and Threat Crimes. A broad range of charges involving conduct designed to cause injury to person or property fall under this umbrella. They include violent acts like assault, as well as threats to others, for example, terroristic threats. There is also a group of violations that target actions which disrupt public order, including disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, and obstructing the administration of law. In addition, these offenses often overlap with other charges when they arise in a scenario wherein the defendant assaults or threatens someone during the commission of another offense, such as robbery. The implications of many of these offenses, no matter what circumstances compelled the charges, can be catastrophic and life-altering. Fortunately, there are a host of viable defenses against these charges and a number of diversionary programs that may be available to defendants who meet eligibility criteria.
At The Law Offices of Jonathan F. Marshall, our attorneys bring a combined 100 years of experience practicing criminal law in court rooms across the State. We utilize extensive collaboration between all eight defense lawyers our team, including several former prosecutors, to formulate the most comprehensive and effective defense strategies. We advise our clients after an in-depth evaluation of the evidence in each case, investigating every potential avenue in order to determine the best course of action. These efforts frequently result in an attorney on our staff achieving a dismissal, negotiating a favorable plea to a downgraded charge, sentencing that is more advantageous or enrollment in diversionary programs such as the Pre-Trial Intervention Program.
