Trenton, NJ Criminal Defense Lawyer

Being charged with a crime is always an upsetting experience.  When you are accused of committing a crime, you run the risk of losing everything you hold dear, ranging from your freedom, to your finances, to your family and friendships.  A criminal conviction can remain on your record for years, or even for the duration of your entire life — all the while presenting you with obstacles when it comes to getting a job, finding a place to live, or building relationships with the people around you. Criminal convictions are embarrassing, expensive, and can be damaging for years to come, long after a sentence has been completed.
