Toms River Criminal Defense Lawyer

Don’t risk a guilty verdict or unfavorable plea bargain. Instead, get the defense you need by working with an experienced Toms River criminal attorney.

Getting charged with a crime can be surprisingly easy—even if you didn’t do anything wrong. Whether you believe you’re guilty or not, you don’t want to experience the legal consequences and costs to your future that follow a conviction.

Protecting your interests and wellbeing requires using the best possible defense for your particular situation, however. If you want to know what your next move needs to be, consulting with a Toms River criminal defense lawyer from Clark, Clark & Noonan, LLC. is the wisest decision you can make.

Don’t Risk Representing Yourself

No matter how simple you think your case is are how blatantly obvious your innocence might be, you don’t want to risk going without legal counsel when making your case in court.

There’s no such thing as a prosecutor who goes easy on a defendant, and if you don’t have a defense attorney, the prosecutor is likely to see your case as a sure win. Plus, you can expect the judge to treat you like an experienced lawyer familiar with courtroom procedure and legal jargon.

While a public defender might be an option, this still shouldn’t be your first choice. Public defenders often have to deal with multiple cases simultaneously, which means that you might not receive the attention needed to build the strongest defense.

A Toms River criminal lawyer from our firm can provide you with the care, detail, and attention that your case deserves. Our firm never gives up, and we know how to collect all available evidence and present an argument that will give you the best chance for seeing your charges dismissed.

Criminal Charges Mean Everything’s at Stake

Underscoring the importance of a compelling defense are the legal punishments you face if you get convicted. With a criminal defense lawyer on your side, the prosecutor probably won’t even bother offering a plea bargain, possibly even pushing for the harshest punishment possible.

Whether the offense is minor or serious, you could be looking at a number of devastating penalties:

  • Petty Disorderly Person Offense – Up to a thirty-day jail sentence and up to a $500 fine
  • Disorderly Person Offense – Up to a six-month jail sentence and up to a $1,000 fine
  • Fourth-Degree Indictable Offense – Up to an eighteen-month prison sentence and up to a $10,000 fine
  • Third-Degree Indictable Offense – Between a three- and five-year prison sentence and up to a $15,000 fine
  • Second-Degree Indictable Offense – Between a five- and ten-year prison sentence and up to a $150,000 fine
  • First-Degree Indictable Offense – Between a ten- and thirty-year prison sentence or life in prison, plus up to a $200,000 fine
