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...

our Bergen County cases

Not all lawyers are built the same. As Bergen 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 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.

I encountered Alan when my back was against the wall. So many other lawyers were charging me an arm and a leg and I just could not afford it. Then Alan came in and helped me out tremendously. He was the first lawyer that I felt ACTUALLY listened to me and had my best interests in mind. From our very first conversation, I felt at ease. He and I were able to compromise on a payment and I felt very certain that I had found the right lawyer. Alan was able to get my charges dismissed and I will forever be grateful to him for his hard work. Thank you, thank you, and THANK YOU! God Bless you Alan!
