Defending Your Rights and Liberties
Oftentimes, police officers or government officials make errors when they conduct their drug investigations. They conduct unlawful searches and seizures, force confessions out of people, and trample all over Constitutional rights.
Our team of experienced attorneys will do everything in our power to make sure that unlawfully obtained evidence gets excluded at trial and cannot be used against you. Moreover, if the circumstances allow, our lawyers will fight to have your drug charges dismissed entirely.
The last place for a victim of substance abuse should be a jail cell. Someone suffering from an addiction should not be treated like a criminal. He should be put into a drug treatment program that can truly help rehabilitate him. For this very reason, here at Rosenblum Law one of the things that we try to do for our clients is to have them avoid serving a prison sentence altogether.
Many times a criminal prosecution can be avoided in New Jersey simply by filing for admission into New Jersey’s Pre-Trial Intervention (PTI) Program. If admitted, you will get the treatment you need without having to face jail time.
Lastly, alternative avenues of rehabilitation exist. This means that a skilled criminal defense attorney can fight to ensure that you do not have to go to jail for a youthful indiscretion or first-time offense.
