We Have The Experience with Freehold Township Cases
With over 35 years of criminal trial experience our lawyers have handled literally thousands of these types of criminal and traffic cases. In many cases we succeeded in having the charges completely dismissed once we have carefully reviewed the police reports, spoken to witnesses in the case, and made our case with the municipal prosecutor. We have taken other cases to trial and won.
In almost every single criminal case where the evidence against our clients is very strong, our attorneys have nevertheless been able to successfully advocate on behalf of our clients, and convince prosecutors to reduce the initial charges. Often we are able to obtain plea offers to a Freehold Township Ordinance.
Every town has local ordinances that if plead to will not be considered a criminal record and will not carry the negative effects stemming from a criminal conviction. For instance, in some cases resisting arrest can often be amended to an “Excessive Noise” type of ordinance. A plea to “Excessive Noise” type of ordinance is legally similar to a traffic infraction with no points and does not count as a crime or criminal act.
Similarly, in traffic court cases, in almost every case we are able to negotiate pleas to lesser infractions. In fact, in a great number of cases we are able to get careless driving, reckless driving, or speeding reduced to unsafe driving which is a no point violation.
When it comes to something as important as protecting your record from the negative effects of a criminal offense you need to hire the right people for the job. Our attorneys are the right people because we have the years of trial and negotiating experience necessary to get the best results.
