If you are facing a criminal charge, you are also facing the power of the government, with comparatively unlimited resources that will be used to take away your freedom. The job of your criminal defense attorney is to stand up to that power on your behalf.

If you are being investigated or facing arrest, if you have been arrested, or if you need to appeal a conviction, contact my law office in South Orange to schedule a free consultation.

I am a criminal trial lawyer. I have absolutely no hesitation in taking on the government before a judge or a jury. I am absolutely dedicated to defending people who are facing the loss of their liberty, and I have the background, skill, experience, and knowledge to aggressively defend you.

I began my career as an Assistant Prosecutor for the Essex County Prosecutor's Office in Newark, New Jersey, in 1980. Over the next seven years, I worked my way up through the appellate section to senior trial attorney, into the sexual assault and rape analysis (SARA) unit and finally into the homicide squad, where I supervised a captain, lieutenant and twelve investigators in the investigation of all murders occurring in Essex County.

Now a New Jersey criminal defense attorney for nearly 20 years, I have tried hundreds of cases and presented thousands of cases to grand juries. I have handled jury trials in adult court, bench trials in juvenile court, and negotiated thousands of plea bargains. That level of experience has developed my instincts about what tactics will work and which strategies are long-shots.

If you are innocent and you really need someone to make every effort to prove it, you can have full confidence that I will exhaust every avenue on your behalf. If you are charged with an offense or crime from shoplifting or DUI to rape or murder, contact an experienced New Jersey criminal defense attorney with the dedication and experience to protect your rights. No matter what your situation, I offer full-service criminal defense from early investigation and preventing indictment, grand jury defense, bail and bond hearings, pre-trial negotiation, jury trials, appeals, and probation violation representation.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:
Comfort Level - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
Credentials - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
Cost - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
City - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?
