New Brunswick New Jersey Criminal Defense and Traffic Lawyers

Middlesex County, New Jersey

If you a family member or close friend have been charged with a crime or traffic offense in New Brunswick, New Jersey, you need an experienced attorney to represent you. Whether you are a Rutgers College Student, resident of New Brunswick, or just happened to be visiting New Brunswick, a criminal conviction could result in a significant fine, potential loss of driving privileges and up to 6 months in the Middlesex County jail.

Without proper legal representation you could find yourself unnecessarily saddled with a criminal conviction that will affect employment opportunities or you could acquire points on your license that can result in a suspension of your privilege to drive in New Jersey as well as sky rocketing insurance premiums. It is not unusual for our clients to be charged with criminal offenses like:

  • Aggravated assault
  • Simple assault
  • Disorderly conduct
  • Harassment
  • Criminal mischief
  • Shoplifting
  • Theft
  • Underage possession of alcohol
  • Providing alcohol to minors
  • Possession or distribution of marijuana or prescription drugs like Oxycodone and Roxicodone

Traffic offenses are also heard in New Brunswick Municipal Court, which has a traffic court calendar. We have represented numerous clients charged with traffic violations including:

  • Drunk driving
  • Speeding
  • Reckless driving
  • Careless driving
  • Driving with a suspended or revoked license
  • Leaving the scene of a motor vehicle accident
  • Driving without car insurance

Sentences for traffic infractions can include incarceration in the county jail and/or fines in excess of thousands of dollars.

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.
