Drug Possession Charges in New Jersey

Drug charges in New Jersey carry the potential for harsh penalties. The New Jersey Comprehensive Drug Reform Act passed in 1987 had the effect of stiffening the potential penalties facing people charged with drug possession. This Act also added many drugs to the existing list of controlled substances. In 1988, designer drugs such as ecstasy and ketamine were added to the list.

Although you may be worried about your life getting turned upside down, our experienced attorneys are here to guide you through the process of resolving your case. A drug possession charge should not define the rest of your life, and we will work to try to minimize the impact of your charges. We handle all types of drug possession cases, including those involving the following:

You may be facing disorderly persons or felony charges. What type of drug you were in possession of, as well as the quantity, are factors that can influence the charges against you.

Jail time and fines are just a couple of the penalties you may be facing for drug possession charges. In addition, you may face the social stigma of your crime – you may feel rejected or judged by coworkers, friends and family. These social repercussions can be agonizing. We know how difficult these situations can be, and we are ready to stand at your side and vigorously defend all charges against you.

Resolving Your Case So You Can Put Drug Possession Charges Behind You

We immediately begin building a defense on your behalf. The approach to each case is unique because your circumstances are unique, but all of our clients receive a proactive defense strategy that includes demonstrating you are a person, not a criminal, and that you do not deserve drastic and harsh punishments.

Because of our many years working as prosecutors and now defense attorneys in criminal cases, we can handle a wide range of drug cases, including those involving the following factors:

  • Drug crimes occurring in school zones. Your potential penalties may be relatively harsher if your drug possession charges involve a drug-free school zone. If you were on a school property, or within 1,000 feet of a school property or school bus, when you were arrested for distribution or possession of a controlled or dangerous substance, you may face severe jail time and steep fines if convicted
  • Drug crimes involving someone’s death. If your drug possession charges involve someone’s death being linked to a drug allegedly supplied by you, then you may face stiffer penalties
  • Drug manufacturing and/or drug distribution. When manufacturing and distribution is involved, your drug possession charges may pose the potential for harsher punishments if convicted

The experienced drug crimes lawyers at Clark, Clark & Noonan, LLC can handle these types of claims and virtually all others. With extensive skills in the courtroom and experience as former state prosecutors, we know how to build a strategic, aggressive defense on your behalf. We know how prosecutors operate, and we use our many years of knowledge and experience to proactively defend you and obtain the best possible outcome in your case.

If you are searching for an experienced, skilled criminal defense attorney to handle the drug possession charges against you by working for the best possible outcome to your case, please call Clark, Clark & Noonan, LLC at 732-303-7857  to learn more about our Jersey City attorneys and to schedule a free consultation.
