Criminal Defense Attorney For New Brunswick & Middlesex County NJ Area
In criminal defense, the name of the game is very often “local.” In most cases, you’ve been arrested by local cops, charged by local prosecutors, and you’ll stand trial in front a judge in one of New Jersey’s local municipal or superior courts, so why would you roll the dice with an out of town lawyer?
Getting local with a defense lawyer in New Brunswick and Middlesex County, New Jersey, means a call to me, Matthew Reisig. I am just one of a handful of lawyers to earn the coveted Certified Criminal Trial Attorney designation by the New Jersey Board on Attorney Certification. If you’ve been charged with a crime, would you rather have a simple lawyer representing you, or would you prefer an attorney who is also certified as a criminal defense specialist?
Fight Back Against An Arrest Charge in New Brunswick & Middlesex County
I’ve helped thousands of New Jersey residents avoid conviction on everything from DWI to aggravated assault, carjacking, kidnapping, terroristic threats, and drug crimes. Because of the years I’ve put into helping people in courts across New Jersey, I bring an expansive knowledge of the law and legal strategy to every case, but also the kind of local knowledge to know when a prosecutor is willing to negotiate more, and which judge is most likely to give the facts a fair hearing.
There are also constitutional issues to be addressed, at both the state and local level. I’m extremely proud to have taken cases to the New Jersey Supreme Court and to have won there. My approach to your case leaves no stone unturned, and no avenue for defense unexplored.
To Plead or Not to Plead? Talk To Me Before Doing Something Dumb
A lot of people don’t want to take on the emotional and financial expense of taking their case to trial, and when prosecutors wave a plea agreement around, that might seem like the best way out. Don’t rush into a plea agreement that you haven’t vetted with your own attorney. Remember, prosecutors most definitely don’t work for you, and their interests are in convicting you, one way or another.
I know these prosecutors. We’ve worked against each other on other cases, and I can tell you that you’ll get a better deal if I’m in the room with you than if you’re there alone. Cops and district attorneys know from experience that I’ll fight for my clients – and often win – so when we talk, they’re open to a better plea agreement with the least restrictions on your freedom for the lowest amount of time. Pleading guilty is okay, as long as you know for a fact that you’ve got the best plea agreement possible.
