Highland Park Drug Charge Lawyer


by in Criminal Defense, Drug Defense

Police in Highland Park, New Jersey do not make many arrests due to the relative small size of the town. However, if you have been charged with a drug (CDS) offense in Highland Park, call now to speak with an attorney who is familiar with the court. My office frequently appears in Highland Park Municipal Court to defend individual arrested or charged with possession of drugs, CDS, painkillers, marijuana and other drug offenses.

The penalties for possession or distribution of drugs in New Jersey are severe, and depend on the degree of the charge. Possession of less than 50 grams of Marijuana, and drug Paraphernalia are disorderly persons offenses in New Jersey. Most other drug charges are felonies (crimes). Most drug related charges in New Jersey carry a minimum, mandatory driver’s license suspension of 6 months unless your defense attorney can prove to the judge that the suspension of your license would impose a severe hardship upon you.

There is also the possibility of jail, prison, probation and mandatory fines and penalties. However, there are defenses to drug charges in New Jersey. Most of these defenses relate to the issues surrounding the search of your person or vehicle. However, others exist depending on the particular facts of your case.
