If you have no prior drug convictions and if you haven't been through a diversionary program before, we can often get you qualified for pretrial intervention or a conditional discharge. These programs are designed to help first-time offenders avoid the continuing stigma and disadvantages of a drug conviction for years to come.
In more complicated cases with heavier potential penalties, our typical approach is twofold: first, to find the weaknesses in the prosecution's case that could lead to dismissal or a win at trial, and second, to convince the prosecution and the court that you're a good candidate for a second chance. That often means converting an indictable offense in superior court into a less serious municipal court offense, where even the maximum penalties are much less severe.
Take Advantage of Our Experience with Jersey Shore Drug Possession Cases
At Villani & DeLuca, our decades of experience in the superior and municipal courts of Ocean and Monmouth counties represents a powerful advantage for our clients. We can give you a very good idea right away of just how your case is likely to play out, based on our prior experience with cases like yours in the same court or courts. We know how to present your strongest available case for diversion away from the criminal justice system.
Our familiarity with the drug treatment and rehabilitation programs throughout the area will help you find the one that's right for you, if that's what you need to do to avoid more serious punishment. Our lawyers also make sure that your defense will meet your long-term needs while resolving the immediate crisis.
While most of our clients are Jersey Shore residents, we also represent people from other states who were arrested while vacationing at one of our shore and beach communities. In some cases, we can take care of your situation without the need to return to New Jersey. In some cases, we can clear up old New Jersey warrants and resulting license suspensions on out-of-state residents who recently discovered that their drug arrest from years ago is creating new problems for them now.
