What Criminal Defense Cases Do We Handle in Jersey City?
Anthony J. Vecchio is a skilled and experienced attorney who once worked on criminal and traffic cases as a prosecutor. Today, he focuses exclusively on helping those who are facing charges. His practice areas include:
Traffic violations – If you are ticketed for speeding or other traffic offenses, you face the risk of getting points on your license and higher insurance rates. Anthony can seek ways to avoid or minimize those consequences.
Driving while intoxicated (DWI) – Jail, fines, loss of your driver’s license – the stakes are high when you are charged with a DWI in New Jersey. Jersey City DUI lawyer Anthony Vecchio can help you to fight the prosecution’s case against you.
Drug possession or distribution – If you have been charged with an offense involving marijuana, cocaine, heroin, opioids or any other controlled dangerous substance (CDS), Anthony can work with you to develop and execute a defense strategy that seeks the best possible result for you.
Other felonies and misdemeanors – Anthony’s diverse experience in criminal defense allows him to assist clients in a wide range of cases, including those involving violent crimes, sexual offenses, financial crimes, computer-related crimes and property offenses.
Juvenile crimes – Anthony understands the key differences between representing adults and juveniles who are charged with crimes. He can pursue an outcome that focuses on counseling and rehabilitation rather than detention.

Why Do You Need a Jersey City Criminal Lawyer?
Few things in life are more stressful and frightening than getting charged with a crime or a traffic violation. During this difficult time, Anthony can help to lift the weight off your shoulders by providing the professional and personalized legal representation that you deserve.
Anthony and his legal team will assist you by:
Gathering and reviewing evidence. You have the right to see the evidence which the prosecution wants to use against you. Anthony will make sure that evidence is turned over and carefully assess the prosecution’s case.
Seeking relief ahead of trial. Anthony can work with prosecutors at the pre-indictment conference to seek a dismissal or downgrade of your charges. He may also move to exclude any unlawfully obtained evidence.
Exploring all options available to you. Depending on the facts of your case, you may be eligible to participate in a pre-trial intervention (PTI) program or reach a plea arrangement with the prosecution that minimizes the consequences you face. Anthony can explore and advise you of all options.
Protecting your rights in court. If your case goes to trial, Anthony will aggressively advocate for you by challenging the prosecution’s case and presenting all defenses which are available to you.
Handling your post-trial legal issues. Anthony can review your trial to determine if any legal errors occurred that merit relief to you on appeal, or he can seek to affirm the result if the prosecution pursues an appeal.
Unfortunately, many people facing charges in Jersey City choose to waive their constitutional right to be represented by counsel. In turn, they miss out on these many important services which an experienced criminal defense lawyer like Anthony J. Vecchio can provide to them. Don’t make this mistake.

As you move forward with your case in Jersey City, you should be aware that you will likely need to appear in court. When you were charged with a criminal or traffic violation, you should have received notice of the date, time and court where you will need to appear.
Many of the clients we represent are facing disorderly persons, DWI, speeding, traffic law or county or municipal law violations. Those cases are heard in Jersey Municipal Court, which is located at:
Lewis S. McRae Justice Complex 365 Summit Avenue Jersey City, NJ 07306 (201) 209-6700.
Several clients we serve are not Jersey City residents. However, they may have received a speeding ticket or other traffic citation while passing through the area on I-78 en route to the Holland Tunnel or while traveling on the New Jersey Turnpike or Pulaski Skyway.
We also assist those in Jersey City who are facing indictable offenses in the Hudson Vicinage. The court’s Criminal Division hears cases at:
William Brennan Courthouse 583 Newark Avenue Jersey City, NJ 07306 (201) 795-6828
Examples of Hudson County indictable offenses include:
Property crimes involving $200 or more
Drug possession and distribution.
The Hudson Vicinage Family Division, meanwhile, conducts juvenile delinquency hearings.
The Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office makes the decision of whether to pursue certain charges as indictable offenses, which requires the prosecutor to present the case to a grand jury, or to drop them to a less-serious charge, which means that a case will be handled in Jersey City Municipal Court.
