How much does a Hudson County Criminal Lawyer cost?

Criminal convictions in NJ can lead to jail time as well as fines that can go into thousands of dollars. But when you are considering the cost of your Hudson County Criminal Lawyer, you must ask yourself if can afford to NOT have a lawyer. The New Jersey criminal system is very complicated, and your case can take months or even years. You need someone that will hold your hand every step of the way and appear with you at all necessary court appearances.

Our Hudson County Criminal Lawyer offers affordable flat fees and depending on the criminal charges that you are facing, you may be eligible for a payment plan. In sum, your liberty and your reputation are too important to risk by not having the proper legal representation. With so much at stake, you should allow your Hudson County Criminal Lawyer to help you fight your criminal charges and try to get your charges reduced or dismissed.

Should I hire a Hudson County Criminal lawyer to defend me?

Your Hudson County Criminal Lawyer will evaluate your case while considering other factors, such as your criminal history and extenuating circumstances at the time you were arrested. Your Hudson County Criminal Lawyer may be able to get your charges reduced or dismissed altogether.

For several reasons, hiring a Hudson County Criminal Lawyer to handle your case will help you in the long run. All criminal charges — such as Simple Assault or Endangering the Welfare of a Child — cannot be resolved without a court appearance, even if you want to plead guilty. In these more serious cases, it would be better to hire a Hudson County Criminal Lawyer “sooner” rather than “later.” That way your lawyer can walk you through the process and immediately begin efforts to resolve your criminal case.

When trying to decide whether you should defend your case yourself or hire a Hudson County Criminal Lawyer, one question that should be asked is, “Do I know how to present my case?” In other words, this means that as a defendant you only have a brief window of time to present your case. Unless you are accustomed to the court system, this process can be overwhelming, especially if it is your first time facing the criminal justice system. A Hudson County Criminal Lawyer has the expertise to present your case concisely, addressing the pertinent facts that the prosecutor will need to make a decision.

Your Hudson County Criminal Lawyer can provide you a few other advantages:

  • By having a Hudson County Criminal Lawyer, you stand a better chance of having your case heard more quickly. New Jersey courts move cases faster in which a defendant has legal representation.
  • You have someone who understands the system. Your Hudson County Criminal Lawyer is familiar with NJ’s court system — and the courts are familiar with your attorney. This understanding of the court processes and the penalties for various convictions gives your attorney an added advantage in fighting your case.
  • Your Hudson County Criminal Lawyer will be with you throughout the process.
  • Your Hudson County Criminal Lawyer will also be able to represent you before a judge if your case goes to trial.
  • Your Hudson County Criminal Lawyer may be able to appear in court for you. Depending on the charges you are facing, if you wish to fight your case but do not have the time to take from your hectic schedule for a court appearance, your Hudson County Criminal Lawyer may be able to appear on your behalf, effectively protecting your rights while saving you from having to change your schedule.

What if I fail to show up for court?

If you do not show up for court, a judge may issue a bench warrant for your arrest. Then, you could be held in jail until your court appearance, and you could be sentenced to jail time and more fines. Even if you avoid arrest or jail time, there are other consequences for failure to resolve your criminal charges.

Are Hudson County Criminal lawyers expensive?

There is no “cookie-cutter” answer for how much an attorney will cost. The price will vary based on several factors, such as how many charges you are facing, what prior offenses you have, and what the circumstances are surrounding your arrest. After giving your Hudson County Criminal Lawyer the details of your case, you will have a clearer picture of how much cost is involved.

You may have a sound legal defense to your charges. For example, if you are facing Assault Charges, perhaps you acted in self-defense and your case may get dismissed. If you are facing Domestic Violence charges and are scheduled for a Final Restraining Order hearing, you may choose to file your own case against your accuser.

Many variables need to be considered. You have nothing to lose, call for a free consultation today!

How do I choose the best Hudson County Criminal lawyer?

Choosing the attorney to represent you is the most important decision you can make when it comes to protecting your freedom, reputation — and your wallet! So how do you know which Hudson County Criminal Lawyer is the right one for you?

You’ve heard the saying that first impressions matter. This is especially true when you are looking for the right Hudson County Criminal Lawyer to represent you. So how do you determine if the attorney you are talking with is the best one to handle your case? Go with that first impression! When you speak with a potential attorney, do you feel that they are truly listening to you? Or do they act as if you are wasting their time? Are they talking with you and asking you specifics about your situation? Or do they just seem to breeze past your explanations? Your first impression matters, because the Hudson County Criminal Lawyer is there to represent you.

You should be comfortable with your decision regarding which attorney will handle your case, so here are a few questions to ask:

  • How many cases have you handled like mine?
  • How often do you get charges dropped or reduced?
  • How long have you worked with the court system in Hudson County?
  • What are your fees?
  • What information do you need from me?

We were in search for an attorney for my Husband and my mother-in-law came across Alan's website December 15th 2023 . From the first point of contact we were assured that, we were dealing with serious chargers and that He ( Alan ) was going to do everything in his power to make sure my husband gets home to me and his family. Alan was retained after the detention hearing witch meant he had to work extra hard. By all means that's exactly what Alan did, kept strong communication throughout the process, working while everyone else was on vacation for the Christmas and New Years Holidays. Alan spent serval hours with my husband getting to know him as a human being, After the first interaction they had Alan knew that my husband wasn't suppose to be in jail and that he was innocent. Alan wanted justice for us and he proved that at each hearing, representing my Husband with Integrity, Honor and Respect. I am grateful and will forever be appreciative for what he has done for us. We were looking at a 10 year plus sentence witch would have been detrimental to us especially to our kids. Alan was dedicated and consistent with providing professional and genuine representation, because of that he won our case!!!!!!!! Because of Alan my Husband didn't have to do any prison time & will be home with us this year! Thank you for everything you have done for our family, May God continue to Bless you and your family.

Criminal charges carry serious consequences. For this reason, you need a team of dedicated & professional Hudson County criminal lawyers to represent you.

I was arrested for a 3rd-degree felony case. I spent 5 hours searching for a good NJ criminal defense lawyer online. Every lawyer I called was in a rush and demanded a lot of money. I didn't like how many of these lawyers talked to me either. When I discovered Peyrouton Law, I checked their reviews. Every review was perfect and I was skeptical. Nobody can be so perfect. I talked to Alan on the phone and made a free appointment to come in and see him. Alan and Kevin explained everything to me very clearly. They answered all of my questions patiently. I never felt rushed. Because of my special circumstances, they took my case for an extremely reasonable flat fee. Honestly, they treated me like a brother. Within a few weeks, they were able to get my felony case downgraded to a misdemeanor. Long story short, I ended up paying a small fine for a municipal ordinance. As a client, I only had to go to court only three times. Even though my case is over, I will continue to keep in contact with Alan and Kevin. I consider them excellent people and they've become trusted friends. If any of my friends or family members ever need a lawyer, I will just grab them by the hand and take them to see Alan and Kevin. You know, when I got arrested, I was humiliated, lost my vacation time, and lost a lot of sleep but the best part of this whole thing is that I made two great friends for life...

Types Of Cases Handled By Hudson County Criminal Lawyers

For our Hudson County criminal lawyers, your case is important to us. Whether you are facing a misdemeanor (Disorderly Persons), a felony (Indictable), or a DWI case, we bring the same determination & intensity in our representation to every case. Since the outcome of these cases can have long-lasting consequences, we do not take them lightly.

For example, felony charges carry mandatory minimum prison sentences. This means that if you plead guilty or go to trial and are found guilty, the judge must sentence you to prison. The judge does not have a choice. So our job as Hudson County criminal lawyers is to negotiate a plea bargain for you to avoid going to jail.

Recently, we represented a client from Jersey City charged with Endangering the Welfare of a Child, Terroristic Threats, and Unlawful Possession of a Weapon. He faced felony charges that carried serious prison time. We successfully negotiated a plea deal with the Hudson County prosecutor’s office to reduce his prison sentence to months in jail.

In another case, our Hudson County criminal lawyers represented a North Bergen resident charged with two counts of first-degree aggravated sexual assault. He faced 60 years in prison & the stakes were high. We’re happy to share that we got him an awesome result. He was not sentenced to prison and was able to return to his prior employment.
