New Jersey Takes Drug Crimes Seriously

In New Jersey, you can face serious criminal consequences for possessing, manufacturing or distributing controlled substances such as cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, LSD or illegally held prescription medications. If you have prior drug possession or distribution offenses, the penalties may be more severe.

If convicted of a drug crime, you may face severe criminal penalties such as:

  • Large fines
  • Years to life in prison
  • Mandatory drug counseling
  • A permanent criminal record

A drug conviction can have other consequences besides criminal punishments. A drug conviction remains on your criminal record and can impact your ability to get a job, housing, certain loans and can ruin your reputation. Your best chance at avoiding these life-altering impacts is to retain an experienced criminal defense attorney.

I will take the time to thoroughly explain your legal rights and options. Depending on the circumstances of your case and prior criminal history, we can explore options to reduce or dismiss your charges as well as alternative sentencing options.
