Proven Morristown Lawyer Fights for the Rights of the Accused
Diligent New Jersey attorney handles criminal defense matters
The criminal justice system is complex, and making the wrong move can negatively impact your case. At the Law Office of Blair R. Zwillman in Morristown, I have 45 years of experience helping clients throughout New Jersey effectively defend against criminal charges. Whether you were arrested for drug trafficking, assault or you were interrogated in connection with a sexual offense, I will strongly advocate for your interests and present a strong case.
Experienced law firm defends against sexual offenses and sexual assault charges
The consequences of a conviction for sexual assault can be severe, and other sexual offenses draw significant penalties as well. Beyond fines, probation and prison time, individuals are subject to the registration and community notification requirements of Megan’s Law. Registration as a sex offender can impact job opportunities, limit housing and, in some cases, affect travel and internet access. I know how to defend against the government’s case and will ensure your side of the story is told.
Knowledgeable advocate opposes claims of embezzlement
Embezzlement occurs when someone steals or misuses property entrusted to them. The value of the property involved determines the severity of the charge. Embezzlement of property worth $75,000 or more is usually a second-degree offense and can bring a prison sentence of five to 10 years. For lesser amounts, it is a third-degree offense and has a possible prison sentence of three to five years. I will thoroughly assess how strong the prosecution’s case is and determine how best to proceed, which may involve a plea bargain to a lesser offense.
Reputable counselor contests drug charges
While it may feel like you have no chance to prevail in a drug crime case, there are many reasons charges may be dismissed, reduced or unproved. Issues that could affect the outcome of your case include:
- An illegal search
- An improper lineup
- Not receiving Miranda warnings
- Flawed lab testing
- Lack of probable cause to make an arrest
I will use my experience to expose holes in the prosecution’s case and ensure your matter is treated fairly.
Reliable attorney will strongly dispute assault charges
New Jersey law describes three kinds of assault – simple, aggravated and assault by automobile. Simple assault includes causing injury by recklessness or even by negligence if a deadly weapon is involved. Aggravated assault can consist of causing significant bodily harm intentionally or with an extreme indifference to the value of human life. An assault by auto occurs when reckless driving results in bodily injury. An assault conviction can lead to time in jail or prison. I will pursue all legal options to obtain a favorable result in your case.
