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 your Bergen County criminal lawyers is to negotiate a plea bargain for you to avoid going to jail.
Recently, we represented a client from Garfield charged with embezzlement. He faced first-degree embezzlement charges and faced decades in prison. We successfully negotiated a plea deal with the Bergen County prosecutor’s office to reduce his prison sentence to months in jail.
In another case, our firm represented a Bergen Community College student charged with drug possession, drug distribution, and drug paraphernalia. We successfully got his drug charges dismissed because the police conducted an illegal search.
