In New Jersey, all crimes carry the possibility of fines and jail time. Many crimes also carry additional penalties, such as a driver’s license suspension and parole supervision for life. Even if you are able to avoid some of these penalties, having a criminal record can still negatively impact all aspects of your life. As a result, if you are facing charges, you need an experienced Millburn criminal defense attorney on your side.
Experienced Millburn Criminal Defense Attorney Handling Drug Crime, DUI, Assault, Domestic Violence and Other Criminal Cases
Millburn criminal defense lawyer Scott Gorman represents clients charged with all types of crimes in New Jersey’s Superior Court and municipal courts. Whether you’ve been charged with a petty disorderly persons offense or a first-degree indictable crime, Scott can use his experience to protect you. Contact The Gorman Law Firm today to discuss your case involving:
Assault and Battery
Assault allegations can take many different forms, and battery is considered a form of assault under New Jersey law. Depending on whether you have been charged with simple assault or aggravated assault, you could be facing anywhere from six months to 10 years behind bars.
Allegations of domestic violence can have immediate and long-lasting effects. Whether your case involves assault, harassment, robbery or terroristic threats, you will need to hire an experienced Millburn criminal attorney to help you avoid unnecessary consequences.
Our firm handles cases involving all types of drug offenses in New Jersey. This includes cultivation, manufacture, distribution, possession and use of marijuana, methamphetamine, cocaine, heroin and other illegal drugs.
Driving Under the Influence (DUI)
Technically, driving under the influence (DUI) is not a crime in New Jersey. Instead, it is classified as a traffic offense. However, DUI cases are handled similarly to criminal cases, and a conviction can still result in fines, jail time, loss of your driver’s license and other penalties.
If you or your child is being charged as a juvenile offender in New Jersey, you need a Millburn criminal defense lawyer who has particular experience handling cases in the state’s juvenile justice system and who understands the consequences of being adjudicated delinquent. Before becoming an attorney, Scott served as a case manager at a non-profit organization where he worked with the families of socially and emotionally troubled children and also worked as a counselor at a residential facility for at-risk youth.
Municipal Court Cases
New Jersey’s municipal courts hear cases involving DUI, minor drug offenses, shoplifting, simple assault and certain other lower-level offenses. Scott has over15 years of experience representing clients in municipal court, and he has helped many of his clients avoid life-altering convictions and penalties.
Murder and Manslaughter
From murder to “death by auto,” all crimes involving the death of another carry severe penalties under New Jersey law. If you are facing any type of murder or manslaughter charge in Millburn, you need to start working on your defense with an experienced attorney right away.
Parole and Probation Violations
If you get convicted of violating the terms of your parole or probation, you could be sent immediately to jail. The New Jersey courts take these cases very seriously, and failure to pay fines, failure to check in, or testing positive for drugs and other violations all have similarly serious consequences.
Robbery and Burglary
Robbery and burglary are indictable crimes in New Jersey. This is equivalent to the “felony” classification in other states. Depending on whether your case involves the use of a weapon, physical injury or various other factors, you could be facing charges for a third-, second- or first-degree indictable crime.
Many sex crimes are also felony-level offenses in New Jersey. This includes sexual assault and aggravated sexual assault (New Jersey’s rape crime), among others. Millburn criminal attorney Scott Gorman handles cases involving these crimes as well as indecent exposure, lewdness, sexting and other forms of prohibited conduct.
Theft and Shoplifting (Retail Theft)
Theft crimes can range from disorderly persons offenses to indictable crimes depending on the value of the items alleged to have been stolen. Whether you have been charged with stealing from a neighbor, stealing from your job or shoplifting, you need an experienced Millburn criminal defense attorney on your side.
New Jersey law makes it illegal to possess many types of guns and other weapons. The law also prohibits individuals from owning or possessing weapons in certain circumstances (i.e., if you have certain convictions on your record or are subject to a domestic violence restraining order). Defending against weapons charges in New Jersey also requires experienced legal representation.
In addition to the crimes discussed above, Millburn criminal defense lawyer Scott Gorman represents local individuals charged with all other types of criminal violations. This includes, but is not limited to:
- Bad Checks and Fraud
- Disorderly Conduct
- Internet Crimes
- White Collar Crimes
- Resisting Arrest
- Child Endangerment
