Frequently Asked Questions About Criminal Defense in New Jersey
The New Jersey criminal justice system is complicated and constantly changing. You need a lawyer who has sufficient experience to guide you through the process from start to finish. When you interview an attorney, you should pay careful attention to their responses. Can they explain what will happen at the arraignment? What are the steps following your release after a detention hearing? What are the rules of evidence and how can the lawyer use them to your advantage?
There are real and serious consequences to the charges you are facing. Our passionate, experienced, and smart lawyers will work tirelessly to get you the best results possible based on the facts of your case.
It depends upon many factors, including the strength of the prosecution’s case. Plea bargains are often struck because the lawyers do not want to take the case to trial. In other words, a plea can provide the lawyer with an easy way out in some cases. Our lawyers are experienced in the courtroom and unafraid to pursue your case through a trial. Trials are expensive, but a plea bargain should be considered as a last resort and not the first option.
