Helping juveniles take advantage of their legal rights

It is most common to think of adults when one thinks of criminal charges and those most likely to be facing them. Generally speaking, we attach the faces of young adults or middle-aged individuals to the reports of domestic violence or drug charges, but it is very possible for younger individuals to face these charges as well. The law may treat these younger suspects slightly differently, but age does not omit you from being a potential suspect in a criminal case.

What is the legal BAC limit in New Jersey?

When you are pulled over by a law enforcement officer, they may ask you to submit to a field sobriety test if they suspect that you may be intoxicated. New Jersey is fairly unique among the states in that there is actually more than one way to be found in violation of state DWI laws. One way is a standard DWI conviction, and the other is known as DWI "Per Se."

Six arrested in New Jersey drug raid

New Jersey police recently took action following a two-month long investigation, resulting in the raid of an apartment in which six people were arrested, and multiple assets were seized. According to reports, the six suspects attempted to flee from police, with two even suffering injuries as they jumped from the balcony. Overall, police seized 707 bricks of heroin, nearly $17,000 in cash, an additional 300 grams in powdered heroin and more.

Important legal defense from white collar crime accusations

White collar crimes are serious accusations, and they should be treated as such by those who are accused of them. In an ideal world, simply being innocent would be enough to avoid concern about criminal accusations, but unfortunately courts can only make the best decisions based on the information presented to them. If your accuser presents a strong enough case against you, being innocent of the crime may not be enough to prevent you from being convicted.

Domestic violence is not only physical

There are multiple types of domestic violence, but the definition of domestic violence remains constant regardless of the specific allegations. Most people think of domestic abuse as one party physically harming the other party in a relationship, but this is not the only type of domestic violence that can occur. Understanding these different types of abuse can help you avoid being wrongfully accused or convicted.
