Criminal charges carry serious consequences. For this reason, you need a team of dedicated & professional Passaic 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 Passaic County Criminal Lawyers

For our Passaic 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 Passaic County criminal lawyers is to negotiate a plea bargain for you to avoid going to jail.

Recently, we represented a client from Paterson charged with drugs. He faced second-degree distribution charges and faced serious prison time. We successfully negotiated a plea deal with the Passaic County prosecutors office to reduce his prison sentence to months in jail.

In another case, our firm represented a Wayne resident charged with Domestic Violence & Assault Charges. We successfully represented him at his Final Restraining Order hearing & got his Assault charges dismissed.

This attorney took immediate charge and was able to reduce the fine to one-half of the posted amount. Further at the time of first contact, Attorney Alan Peyrouton informed that within three years passing, Expungement would be -in fact- forthcoming.That time has come with Full Grant Of Expungement for which this writer will forever be grateful: a promise made and kept!!This attorney stood by this client and always available for consultation, never adding to the retainer fee paid, which also included the New Jersey State processing charge for expunging.The "Night-Mare" is over and the legal issue is erasedas if nothing happened almost three years ago.One can not go wrong by selecting this Exceptional Law Firm.Exceptional Value, Personal Service, Expertise, Professionalism, Etc. - All: Outstanding!!Respectfully submitted,Ronald Yee- Continuing Client.

Depressed, confused, tired, giving up was all I was doing due to my charges I got and had to face until my attorney Alan showed up… my charges was definitely gonna put me away behind close doors and more than likely deported …it took 2+ years of investigations before we’ve heard anything at all .. lawyer Peyrouton called,left messages ,emailed throughout this time until he found a status for my case … by then it was so tense where it’d be federal where it was already pending at the Supreme Court but Alan worked his wonders and got it to the municipal court (don’t ask me how ) lol … (2 charges) he always shows up for court ,keeps me updated on everything as long as he heard any news …at the end of this hectic time of my life ,Alan could of made it possible for 1 of 2 to be dismissed and the other was lowered to a little over nothing charge ….being grateful is an understatement for me cause I surely thought this was the end but with an awesome lawyer that will work in silence but diligently , u can never go wrong ! Thank you again Alan 🫶🏽

Allen took a case for me that could have had an enormous detrimental effect on my life . I was extremely nervous, but he assured me that with his extensive experience and knowledge, that I had nothing to worry about. He also was very clear to explain the potential and harmful consequences of this infraction. He got my case dismissed. Thank you, Allen!

Attorney Alan G. Peyrouton has been a blessing to me. He was able to get my criminal charge dismissed on a first appearance with a low fine. Trust me, it wasn’t easy and he was quick to take on my case. Although my case was a misdemeanor, it still weighed heavy on my career, my reputation and being a divorced / single parent. Thank you Alan for your quick response and handling my case in a quickly matter. Your representation of my truthful character was solid and I will always appreciate you for that!
