Areas of Practice

Federal criminal defense : Representing those charged with federal drug crimes, conspiracy, health care fraud, bribery, extortion and much more.

Drug crimes : Providing defense against charges such as drug possession, sales and manufacturing. I often seek alternative sentencing in cases where clients are proven guilty in an effort to avoid long prison sentences.

White collar crimes : Defense in federal and state courts against crimes such as embezzlement, fraud, money laundering, forgery and many other offenses.

Sex crimes : Defending those accused of sexual assault, rape, child pornography, online solicitation, luring, prostitution and all other sex crimes in New Jersey.

Violent crimes : Violent crimes such as aggravated robbery, carjacking, rape, attempted homicide and murder can result in a long prison sentence without the opportunity for early parole under New Jersey's No Early Release Act (the "85% Rule").

Gun crimes : I keep up on all changes to gun laws so I can properly defend people charged with firearms possession, felon in possession, weapons trafficking and other crimes.

DUI/DWI defense : Whether this is your first drunk driving arrest or you are a repeat offender, I will do my best to defend you and protect your reputation.

Juvenile crimes : A juvenile conviction will stay on a child's record, running the risk of higher penalties for any subsequent convictions as an adult. Children who are 16 or 17 years old can be sent to a youth house until their 21st birthday. If your child is tried in adult court, all adult penalties will apply except for capital punishment.
