Criminal charges for robbery are common in New Jersey.

No matter how serious your charges, we have the experience to help you face your situation.
What Should I Do After Being Charged with Robbery in New Jersey?
If you were charged with armed robbery or robbery, you should contact our attorneys as soon as possible to get the information you need. You should know there is a presumption of incarceration in these types of cases. This presumption means that the initial plea offer from the prosecutor is very likely to include a jail sentence. Potential punishments may be stiffer if your case involves weapons offenses or other charges.
You need an attorney with experience in these matters to resolve your case in the best way possible. Each case is unique, but possible paths to resolving your case may involve:
- Suppression of evidence
- Dismissal of charges
- Alternatives to jail
- Preparing your case for trial
We are uniquely familiar with how police investigate robberies and armed robberies in New Jersey. Police procedures require certain protocols, and we can immediately spot any weakness originating from this aspect of your case. As former prosecutors, Charles Clark and Ryan Clark learned how the police carry out their investigations, so we have this unique window of experience through which to view what happened in the lead-up to your charges.
Potential Penalties in Robbery Cases
Robbery convictions have both very real punishments as well as consequences that are more personal in nature, such as:
- Jail time
- Criminal record
- Loss of certain privileges
- Difficulty finding employment
- Criticism from your peers and family
These punishments are serious, but you can fight your charges head-on with the help of our experienced and aggressive violent crime defense attorneys. You should take your situation seriously, but you shouldn't panic. Working passionately on your behalf, our lawyers will obtain the best resolution to your case. We understand the weight of your charges, and we immediately begin building an effective defense strategy to protect your future.
