Cases We Handle
For over 30 years, Brown Law, LLC has proudly assisted clients who have faced criminal charges in New Jersey. Our firm handles a wide variety of criminal matters, some of which include the following.
Driving While Intoxicated: Anyone who makes the decision to drive with a Blood Alcohol Content above 0.08 percent can be charged with driving while intoxicated. These offenses are taken very seriously in the state of New Jersey. The penalties associated with a DWI can be serious and may result in hefty fines and a license suspension, even if it is your first offense. You will also face significant financial burdens as a result of a DWI conviction so it is important that you hire an experienced criminal defense attorney to assist with your case.
Drug Crimes: Drug crimes are taken very seriously in New Jersey, as the state is working hard to put an end to the opioid epidemic plaguing the region. If this is your first arrest for a drug-related charge, you may be able to be placed in a diversion program that will keep any conviction off of your record if it is successfully completed. A conviction of a serious drug offense can lead to jail time, probation, treatment programs, fines, community service, among others. Even a small possession charge can end up on your criminal record and may result in the suspension of your driver’s license.
