Defending Clients Facing Criminal Charges Across Union County and Northern NJ

Drug Offenses
Drug Offenses

New Jersey lawmakers take drug offenses very seriously, imposing strict penalties for those convicted of offenses involving controlled dangerous substances. Under State law, these offenses vary significantly, depending on multiple factors, including the specific substance, the amount of said substance, any accompanying articles such as syringes or other drug paraphernalia, and the location of the offense (i.e. a school zone, vehicle, or public park).

The specific charges will determine the associated potential penalties, as well as the alternatives to incarceration that may be available to eligible defendants, including diversionary programs such as conditional discharge, drug rehabilitation programs, or community service. Generally, drug convictions can result in penalties ranging from fines and periods of license suspension to jail time and permanent charges on your criminal record. Fortunately, many of these consequences can be avoided with the assistance of an experienced defense attorney.
