Criminal Defense Attorney For Jersey City & Hudson County NJ Area
If you stand accused of a crime in Jersey City, New Jersey, or elsewhere in Hudson County, you’re undoubtedly worried about what comes next. You’ve probably gone through the humiliation of an arrest, unpleasant interviews with the police, and finally, a prosecutor declaring that you’ve broken the law. To top the whole terrifying ordeal off, you have been told by a cop or prosecutor that you’ll go to jail for some ridiculous length of time, all in an effort to scare you into doing what they say.
Fight Back Against An Arrest Charge in Jersey City or Hudson County
My name is Matthew Reisig, and I’ve been a defense attorney practicing in New Jersey courtrooms for more than 20 years. In that time, I’ve helped thousands of people avoid conviction of all manner of crimes in this state, from allegations of drunk driving, to violent crimes, to drug charges. There are few criminal defense attorneys as experienced in Jersey City courts, and even fewer who’ve earned the sought-after Certified Criminal Trial Attorney designation by the New Jersey Board of Attorney Certification.
Unlike many lawyers, when I’m sitting in a room with you across from a Jersey City prosecutor, they know that I’m more than equipped to take your case to a jury and that there’s a strong likelihood that we’ll win in court. This makes negotiations around plea agreements a lot easier for people who don’t want the headache of a trial. Prosecutors know me, and they know it’s better to work with me than against me.
What Happens Next in Your Case
When a new client first calls me, they want to know what happens to them now. It’s a fair question, and the answer will vary. If you’ve been charged with a drug or alcohol crime, it may be advantageous to start going to AA meetings or similar. In other cases, you should sit tight.
On my end, this beginning point is where the work begins. As I learn the facts of your case – where a crime is alleged to have happened, who witnessed it, what evidence the police have gathered – I begin an extensive investigation into all aspects of the charges against you. I’m testing every point for weak spots: did the police violate procedure when they took you into custody? Were warrants properly obtained to seek evidence, and was evidence properly handled at all points along the chain of custody? Along with interviewing witnesses and others, I’ll start to understand the flaws in the case against you, and how to use them to our benefit.
No lawyer can guarantee that you’ll win your trial, but I know from experience that my approach – attacking every possible angle of a case – can make a huge difference for my clients when the chips are down. Even in extremely tough cases, having a thorough defense that reaches straight into the prosecution’s case can have a remarkable impact on what’s possible when it comes to prosecutors and juries.
