Drug Charges

Experienced Drug Crimes Lawyers Serving Clients Throughout Northern New Jersey & NYC

If you have been accused of selling or possessing illegal drugs, it is important to take immediate action to protect your rights. Drug charges carry serious consequences, including possible jail time and the loss of your driver’s license. In fact, many people do not realize how seriously a conviction can change their lives — that distribution or sale of drugs in a school zone can mean 10 years in state prison, and that possession of marijuana can mean six months in jail.

Uniquely Positioned To Fight Your Charge

Work with an experienced attorney familiar with the laws for both state and federal drug offenses. As former prosecutors, we have an in-depth knowledge of the workings of the criminal justice systems in state and federal courts within New Jersey and New York.

We are dedicated to helping people charged with crimes involving a wide range of drugs and controlled substances:

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.

Depending on the circumstances of your arrest, we may be able to fight for alternative sentencing options. It is possible for a person facing drug charges to enter into a diversionary program, especially if this is your first offense. Entering into a diversionary program may allow a person to avoid a conviction.
