There Is No Better Way to Safeguard Your Record Than With Our Experience
Criminal Charges. You don’t have to plead guilty to the initial charges even if you may have violated the law. In almost every single case we have handled, our criminal attorneys have successfully convinced the Aberdeen Township Municipal Prosecutor to amend the charges to a less serious charge, such as a non-criminal Aberdeen Township Ordinance violation. In other words, we have been able to negotiate pleas to Aberdeen Township Ordinances that are not considered crimes or criminal acts on your record.
Traffic Charges. The same principal of plea negotiations applies to traffic charges. Our attorneys are almost always able to convince the Aberdeen Township Municipal Prosecutor to amend a traffic ticket to a non-point or reduced point traffic offense or an offense that does not affect our client’s driver’s license. A common example in traffic cases is where our client has been issued a summons for careless driving, reckless driving, or speeding. Here, we are usually able to convince the prosecutor to offer a plea to unsafe driving, which is a no point traffic infraction that carries only a fine.
With over 35 years of criminal trial experience, our lawyers have handled literally thousands of these types of traffic offenses and criminal charges. In cases where our clients have been innocent, we have gone to trial and won. At times we have been able to avoid trial by demonstrating our client’s innocence to the prosecutor after having investigated the case, reviewed the police reports, and interviewed the witnesses and police officers. Another common approach we have utilized with much success is to conduct a hearing and seek suppression of the State’s evidence which was unlawfully obtained after an unconstitutional search by the police.
