If You are Facing Criminal Charges in Bergen or Hudson County in New Jersey, Trust Our Experienced Defense Lawyers to Fight for Your Rights

From traffic violations to violent offenses, if you have been accused of breaking the law, you need experienced legal representation. The New Jersey criminal justice system takes all criminal offenses extremely seriously, and to protect yourself from harsh penalties, you need a trusted and aggressive advocate on your side.

At the Law Offices of Jeffrey Hasson, P.C., our criminal defense lawyers are committed to obtaining the best possible results for our clients. When you schedule your free consultation, we will help you understand the charges against you and discuss your options so that you can begin to make informed decisions about your case.

Driving Under the Influence/Driving While Intoxicated (DUI/DWI)

Drunk driving arrests are serious business in New Jersey. Penalties for a first-time offense include possible jail time, a one-year license suspension, and financial penalties. For repeat offenders and offenses involving aggravating circumstances (such as causing an accident or having a minor in the vehicle), the consequences can be much more severe.

The good news is that there are numerous potential defenses to DUI/DWI charges. When we take your case, we will seek to identify all available defenses in order to minimize the consequences of your arrest – and, if possible, avoid conviction entirely.

Traffic Violations

Being convicted of a traffic violation can result in fines, points on your license, and other expensive consequences. Your insurance rates could go up, and you may be at-risk for losing your license. While you may be tempted to just pay the ticket and move on with your life, it may not be in your best interests to do so.

We represent individuals accused of all types of traffic violations in New Jersey. From speeding tickets to arrests for leaving the scene of an accident, there are ways to defend the charges against you. To learn more about what we can do to help, feel free to give us a call today.

Other Criminal Offenses

Our defense lawyers represent clients accused of all types of property, drug-related, violent, and public crimes. Regardless of the charges against you, a criminal conviction could have negative consequences for years to come. If you are facing charges for a serious crime – such as a violent assault or drug trafficking – you could be facing years, maybe even decades, behind bars. This is on top of the fines, costs, probation, and practical realities of it becoming much more difficult (if not impossible) for you to get into school or find a well-paying job. Even lesser offenses, known as disorderly persons or petty disorderly persons offenses, could result in fines, penalties, and jail time and could also affect your record.With offices in Teaneck and Union City, we represent criminal defendants throughout New Jersey who have been accused of:

Defending Criminal Charges in New Jersey

Although each case is unique, there are many potential defenses to criminal allegations. Some of these involve the specific elements of the crime (e.g., you were not actually trafficking drugs), while others involve the important Constitutional protections that are afforded to all United States citizens (e.g., the right to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures).

Knowing which defenses to raise and how to raise them requires years of experience representing criminal defendants in plea negotiations and in court. While we always look for ways to have our clients’ charges dismissed, if dismissal is not an option in your case, we will also consider defenses that can reduce your charges and punishment. Depending on the circumstances, we may also be able to get you into a diversionary program that will ultimately help you avoid having a conviction on your criminal record.

Seeking Expungement of Your Criminal Record

While New Jersey law makes it possible to have your criminal expunged under certain circumstances, seeking expungement can be a challenging and time-consuming process. However, if it means finding a job, getting your education, or restoring your right to vote, it can be well worth the investment. If you are eligible, we can help you clear your criminal record.
