Sex Crime Defense Attorneys in Bergen County, New Jersey
The negative public stigma associated with sexual offenses can make it challenging to receive the objective and fair criminal process that you deserve. In addition, prosecutors often pursue defendants facing sex crime charges with great force because of the public perception of these cases. With the catastrophic consequences of a conviction and potential damage to your reputation, it is critical to enlist an aggressive defense attorney who can advocate on your behalf throughout these proceedings. Travis J. Tormey is that attorney. In fact, he has been featured in the Asbury Park Press as a legal resource on sex crimes and Megan’s Law in New Jersey.
