Criminal Matters

Anytime you are charged with a crime it is serious, no criminal case is small or “no big deal”.  A criminal conviction of a misdemeanor or disorderly persons offense can result in fines, loss of your driving privileges, probation, alcohol monitoring, community service, jail, prison, or difficulty in maintaining employment in many fields today or finding a new job in the future. If you are not a United States Citizen, any criminal conviction, including some serious non-criminal traffic offenses can result in you being unable to become a United States citizen in the future or can lead to your deportation. It is very important that you hire an experienced attorney who can help navigate you through the intricacies of a criminal case, defend your rights and work for you to get you the best outcome possible in your case. You have rights!  Exercising your rights can be the difference between a favorable outcome and an unfavorable outcome. The Police have a job to do. Their job in investigating a crime is not always in your best interest.  Often, people talk to the police to their own detriment and their statements are used against them. You have right to remain silent and be represented by an attorney.  Exercise your rights.
