Protecting Your Rights In The Criminal Process
Criminal charges can wreak havoc on every aspect of your life. They can affect not only your freedom, but also your relationships with family and friends as well as your career. It is important to retain skilled criminal defense counsel who is experienced with every step of the New Jersey criminal process.
At Johnson & Johnson in Dover, we understand criminal charges are serious matters that demand serious representation. Our criminal defense attorneys will help you prepare for every step with careful explanations about the process, your options and your chances. We believe in being honest with our clients and providing them with as much information as possible so that they can make informed decisions.
Guiding You Through Pre-Trial And Trial
Our office can help you with any part of the criminal process. If you know you are being investigated, you may have questions about what may happen next. Our lawyers can explain and represent you throughout the formal indictment process in areas such as intake after being arrested and charges have been filed; initial court appearance; bail; right to counsel; and substance abuse evaluations.
The following steps do not always occur in this order and some crimes do not have a pre-trial intervention option. We will help you determine what type of plea may be in your best interests and we will help you post bail. Here are some of those steps:
- Plea bargains
- Pretrial intervention program
- The grand jury
- The indictment process
- The pre-arraignment conference and arraignment
- Posting bail
If your case proceeds to trial, we will zealously represent you. We will examine evidence, consult with experts and prepare all applicable defense and motions. We will also help you with any post-conviction motions and, if you choose, we will help you expunge your record when the applicable amount of time has elapsed. This process may seem long and daunting, but with our experience and aggressive approach, you can feel better knowing you will understand what is going on and be able to make a sound decision about how to proceed. We are on your side.
