We Have the Experience with New Brunswick Cases
The biggest mistake people make is that they assume if the letter of the law has been violated they have to just plead guilty to the initial charges. With over 35 years of criminal trial experience, our lawyers have handled literally thousands of criminal and traffic cases. In nearly every case where the evidence against our clients is strong we have nevertheless been able to successfully advocate on behalf of our clients and negotiate a plea deal that carries significantly reduced penalties and a reduced impact on their driving or criminal records.
These pleas often result in an amendment of the criminal charges to a non-criminal town ordinance. Traffic violations that carry significant points can be amended to a reduced point charge or to a no point violations that carries only a fine.
In many cases, we have been able to get outright dismissals of a client’s criminal or traffic case after carefully reviewing the police reports, interviewing witnesses and police officers, and investigating the case. Still, in other cases, we have successfully sought suppression of the State’s evidence after unconstitutional searches by the police, or a failure of the prosecution to timely turn over discovery. Where our clients have been innocent, and we exhausted all other remedies, we have gone to trial and won.
