Crimes of Violence

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.

This will be the most difficult challenge of your life and you need a skilled, knowledgeable and experienced defense attorney who is ready to help you meet this challenge. For nearly four decades, Frank T. Luciano, P.C., has built a reputation as an aggressive NJ criminal defense attorney who fights to preserve his clients’ freedom and allows them to continue living their lives. He has represented a wide range of clients from Hackensack, Paterson and Jersey City in every possible type of violent crime and he is prepared to do the same for you.

Protect Your New Jersey Criminal Rights with Frank T. Luciano

Regardless of your guilt or innocence, the best decision you can make after being charged with any type of violent crime is to seek legal counsel. If you are innocent, you need a criminal defense attorney who can investigate and explore the evidence against you to find weaknesses in the prosecution’s case and create doubt in the jurors’ minds. However, even if you are guilty, a skilled NJ criminal defense attorney may be able to reduce your charge or resulting sentence.

The penalty you face will depend on the severity of the crime committed or attempted. You could be looking at as much as 30 years in jail and fines as high as $200,000. A guilty verdict would damage your life forever, making it difficult for you to find employment, housing, to be with your family or to ever fully rejoin society. Mr. Luciano has defended clients in the following types of violent crimes:

The evidence against you may include eyewitness accounts, camera surveillance, expert testimony, DNA evidence and fingerprint analyses. If Mr. Luciano chooses to represent you, he will search high and low and work day and night to find holes in testimony, dismiss unlawfully acquired evidence and discount circumstantial evidence. Attempting to defend yourself without an experienced NJ attorney like Mr. Luciano may end up being the biggest mistake of your life. Don’t take that chance.

From a former client

"First thing I want to tell is that I thank God for giving me the opportunity to meet such a wonderful person like you and without question, the best lawyer in this world. I am very grateful for everything you did for me. I want to let you know that I'm doing good and if you ever think of coming to . . . for vacation don't forget to contact me. Thanks again Mr. Luciano and please say hello to that kind lady that answers the phone with pleasure every time I called."

From a former client with a First Degree Distribution Charge

"In my distraction focusing on my . . . trial, I failed to ask you how things went with . . . I watched and learned from you throughout that case and greatly admire the consummsate attorney that I hoped to emulate. I witnessed how very hard you worked and how you left no stone unturned. I hope the case worked out for you and your clients. If it did not (and I hope it did) it was not for lack of the effect on your part which was humbling."

From an adversary in a case where we ultimately returned a verdict of $2,069,000

"My family and I would like to thank you for all of your hard work on my case. I feel like I can live my life normally again and it feels awesome. You are truly a professional and wonderful attorney."

From a former client charged with a serious weapons offense

"At the time, I was mortified because, having only worked against you in the Prosecutor’s Office, I couldn’t picture being on the same side. Frank, I want to thank you for the pleasure of having worked with you over the past years. I have learned a great deal from you. Most importantly, I learned that cases were not always as black and white as I thought they were when I worked for the Prosecutor’s Office. You are a wonderful attorney who not only works hard, but also cares deeply about his clients. Frank, I think you are the best."
