Expert New Jersey Violent Crime Criminal Defense Attorneys
Violent crimes are among the most serious and heinous crimes with which a person can be charged. In most NJ cases, a violent crime is a first-degree or second-degree offense, which means that regardless of how many prior convictions you have, you are likely to face a lengthy incarceration and heavy fines, among many other potential penalties. You cannot afford a guilty conviction, as your life will be forever marred by it.
