Lackey & Miller handles a full range of criminal defense matters
Our criminal defense firm handles a wide range of criminal cases, including:
- Drug crimes — In New Jersey, the possession of almost all controlled dangerous substances, notably cocaine and heroin, is strictly prohibited by law. If you find yourself arrested on charges related to the possession, sale or use of a controlled dangerous substance, our firm is committed to thoroughly investigating the circumstances surrounding your case. We will closely examine whether evidence was lawfully collected, and if warranted, vigorously pursue alternatives to incarceration.
- Fraud and white-collar crimes — Not every case is as straightforward as the prosecution may portray to the public. If you are facing charges related to a financial crime, you might have come across a newspaper article or press release that presents only one perspective, leading to feelings of fear and embarrassment. Such allegations have the potential to result in job loss, pension implications, and unjustly tarnish an individual’s standing in the community. We recognize that every story has two perspectives, and the strength of the States’s case may not be as formidable as it initially seems. If you have been accused of any type of fraud or white-collar crime, our attorneys will thoroughly investigate the claim and all the relevant records to determine the best possible defenses.
- Violent crimes — Confronting an accusation of a violent offense, such as robbery or murder, can be deeply distressing and carry lasting ramifications. Considering the seriousness of these charges, it is absolutely crucial to secure the services of an attorney with a proven track record of success in the courtroom. Our experienced attorneys have a strong background in handling violent offense crimes and are fully dedicated to providing you with a relentless defense, challenging the prosecution’s evidence, and vigorously advocating for your rights.
- Weapons charges — Offenses involving weapons, particularly firearms, carry significant weight in the eyes of law enforcement and prosecutors in the State of New Jersey. A conviction for a weapons offense can lead to extensive imprisonment and substantial fines. We fully comprehend the gravity of these charges and the impact they can have on your life. Regardless of the specific weapons charges you may be facing, our attorneys, who have experience as former prosecutors, are well-prepared to provide expert guidance and support in your defense.
- Traffic and municipal violations — Neglecting to contest a traffic ticket can have significant financial consequences, with fines and insurance premiums potentially amounting to hundreds or thousands of dollars. Certain situations may result in a traffic citation culminating in a driver’s license suspension or even confinement in a county jail. Should you find yourself issued a traffic violation, regardless of your level of certainty about its seriousness, it is advisable to promptly seek legal counsel. This step ensures you safeguard your rights and interests effectively.
- Juvenile offenses — If your child or a minor under your care is facing criminal charges or disorderly person’s offense, the situation can be immensely daunting and unsettling, particularly if this is uncharted territory for you. Worries about your child’s future, including their education and career opportunities, as well as their reputation, can feel overwhelming. At our firm, we understand the sensitivities involved in juvenile cases and have extensive experience in handling such matters. Our dedicated attorneys are wholly committed to protecting your child’s future and reputation, ensuring a fair and just outcome.
No matter the specifics of your situation, we are committed to providing you with a comprehensive understanding of the relevant laws and the potential long-term consequences associated with all available options. Our dedicated team of criminal defense attorneys will guide you through the complexities of your case, ensuring that you are well-informed and empowered to make the best decision for your life.
