What To Expect After A Drug Charge

Many of our clients are people who have never been involved in the legal system. They may not know the procedures involved and the potential consequences of a conviction. We make sure our clients understand the stages of the legal process. We explain the crime with which they have been charged and the penalties they may face.

In our confidential discussions with you, we will talk about ways to effectively defend your case. We will discuss possible plea bargains and legal defenses at trial. Often, we ask you to recount the events that led to your arrest. If you were involved in a traffic stop, for example, we will determine if the police had a legal right to search your car.

We understand that the law in both New Jersey and New York takes criminal allegations seriously. This is why we begin working on your case immediately. We collect critical evidence for your case — like police paperwork, lab results and other scientific evidence — so that we can determine the best defense for your particular situation.
