Bergen County Attorney Catering To All
Your Legal Needs!

Facing Legal Problems in Hackensack or Teaneck?

When you are faced with any kind of legal issue, taking action immediately in retaining the services of a skilled Bergen County Trial Attorney can make the difference between a conviction and freedom. Any potentially serious legal issue is a danger to your future and your attorney stands between you and a conviction in most cases. The skill with which your case is presented in court can be the pivotal factor in whether or not you garner a favorable outcome. Not all legal professionals have the oratory skills to present a case to a jury—regular people—and increase the reasonable doubt. The prosecutor has the “burden of proof” in any trial. Our attorney has the opportunity to aggressively challenge the evidence against you, cross examine witnesses, and to present a compelling defense. Even a DWI charge can be successfully defended when you have a committed, hard-hitting and competent lawyer fighting for you.

Our firm provides professional, committed legal representation to clients facing all types of criminal defense cases, including but not limited to DWI and drug crimes, such as possession and sales. Drug crimes are a widespread problem throughout the country and the penalties are harsh to discourage against committing these crimes. Even prescription fraud has become harshly penalized and individuals from all situations can find themselves at odds with the law. Officers may be quick to make assumptions before understanding the whole story and we are there to defend your side. We also handle cases relating to federal crimes and white collar crimes, including embezzlement, RICO charges, and Internet crimes. These can come with significant penalties, and due to the increased occurrence of online crimes, more efforts are being put in by officers to prevent against it.

Our firm provides exceptional legal services in the arena of Estate Planning as well as providing general counsel services for businesses and not-for-profits. Our team of qualified attorneys is prepared to advocate and fight for the best interests of our clients whether it is a Real Estate deal or a commercial litigation battle.
