Spotswood NJ Criminal Defense Lawyer
If you have been charged with any type of criminal or traffic offense in Spotswood New Jersey it is pivotal that you consult with a criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible. Individuals who have been charged with disorderly conduct, marijuana possession, harassment or another form of disorderly persons offense often think they do not require representation. However, when you consider that even this grade of charge carries six months in jail and the potential for thousands in financial ramifications, it is clearly foolish not to speak to a knowledgeable attorney. The shortsightedness of this thinking is only amplified when you consider that the lawyers at our firm, Marshall, Bonus, Proetta & Oliver, several of whom are former prosecutors including at the Middlesex County Prosecutors Office, escape a conviction to offenses like these in a significant percentage of cases. You owe it to yourself to take advantage of a free consultation with a member of our team. Call our East Brunswick Office now at 732-227-1200 for immediate assistance.
