Hackensack NJ Theft and Fraud Defense Lawyers
New Jersey determines the severity of theft or fraud charges by calculating a combination of the value of the stolen property and the amount of force (if any) that was employed during the theft. This sliding scale allows for a wide range of penalties, typically involving a combination of fines and jail time. At The Tormey Law Firm, we review the evidence against you to determine whether your constitutional rights were violated at any point during your arrest. If so, we ask the court to suppress this evidence and ultimately, to dismiss the charges against you.
We do not seek plea bargains when the evidence is strongly in your favor. We are experienced courtroom litigators who will proceed to trial to clear your name if it is in your best interests. We have handled thousands of criminal cases from beginning to end and will use our extensive experience to benefit you in court. On the other hand, we are also experienced negotiators who will work with prosecutors to achieve reduced charges that often allow you to avoid jail time when that is the best option available. Regardless of the situation, we always completely explain every option to our clients at each stage of the process, involving them in the decision-making process and ensuring that they feel informed and in control of their own destinies.
