For example, if you are charged with an indictable offense like aggravated sexual assault in or near Newark, your case will be prosecuted by the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office. Or, if you got arrested for drug charges like marijuana possession on the Montclair University campus in Montclair, your case will also be prosecuted at the county level.

For our Essex 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 Essex County criminal lawyers is to negotiate a plea bargain for you to avoid going to jail.
Recently, we represented a client from Irvington charged with drugs. He faced second-degree distribution charges and faced serious prison time. We successfully negotiated a plea deal with the Essex County prosecutors office to reduce his prison sentence to months in jail.
In another case, our firm represented an East Orange resident charged with Domestic Violence & Assault Charges. We successfully represented him at his Final Restraining Order hearing & got his Assault charges dismissed.
