Possessing an accurate sense of the criterion on which a trier of fact (judge or jury) will decide your guilt or innocence is critical to your success. The manner in which your attorney presents you and your witnesses to court officials is extremely significant. One incompetently addressed misconception could result in your conviction, possible imposition of jail time, criminal record, max fines, suspension of driver’s license, loss of employment, loss of income, etc.. Just think about what that would mean to you. Attaining experience sufficient to empower an attorney to become truly useful to a defendant can only be garnered by handling many cases, before many courts, over many years. There is simply no substitute. There is just too much that must be learned. In my 26 years of practicing law in New Jersey I have successfully handled may hundreds of criminal matters and traffic offense matters. My greatest joy is the gratitude some have expressed to me.
