MY PLEDGE TO YOU: Together, we will face your accusor(s)

I will represent you personally from retention through final disposition of your matter with the court. You will not be represented by an associate with whom you have had no prior dealings. Together we will face your accuser(s) and work to avoid conviction or to minimize your exposure to the imposition of possible jail time, criminal record, loss of driver's license, maximum fines. I currently regularly practice in 67 Municipal courts and 4 Superior courts. I will use all the experience I have accumulated during my 26 plus years of practicing law to obtain the very best possible result for you. I will personally promptly answer your telephone calls or emails when you contact me with a question or concern regarding your matter.

Law Services

I represent individuals and/or corporations charged with commission of Criminal Offenses (charges starting with 2C:) and/or commission of Traffic Offenses (charges starting with 39:). Upon retention, I handle for you the generation and filing of all documents necessary to address the charges against you commencing with the letter of representation, not guilty plea, demand for discovery, all motions and pretrial conferences. I appear in court with you to resolve your matter on each scheduled court date, whether it be to argue a motion to suppress, to conference the case, to conduct a trial or to hammer out a favorable plea bargain. My efforts may result in dismissal of some, or even all, of the charges against you if warranted, or may result in a downgrade to a lesser included offense minimizing, or even eliminating if warranted, your exposure to jail time, criminal record, maximum fines, suspension/revocation of driver's license. In my 26 years of practicing law I have obtained some remarkable results for clients (developed below). Favorable final disposition of your charges must be obtained using one of two basic strategies known as trial on the merits or plea bargaining.
