Experience Defending A Wide Array Of Drug Charges

The Union County Court presides over indictable crimes. This includes most drug charges with the exception of marijuana. With its proximity to New York, New Jersey sees a large amount of drug distribution and possession with intent to distribute.

Controlled Dangerous Substances (“CDS”) are heavily regulated in New Jersey and a violation of such laws can easily result in a criminal charge with severe penalties. Common charges involve drugs such as:

  • Cocaine or heroin
  • Ecstasy, LSD (acid) and PCP (angel dust)
  • methamphetamine or P2P
  • methadone, mescaline and Peyote
  • Opium, DMT, Magic Mushrooms
  • Amphetamines, including Ritalin and Xanax

I have years of experience defending individuals who have been charged with various offenses in Union County Court. As a former Union County Assistant Prosecutor and former Cranford Municipal Prosecutor, I know how the prosecution works and I have knowledge of which defenses are most effective in fighting your drug possession charge.

I aggressively defend individuals throughout New Jersey against a broad range of drug-related offenses, including the distribution of drugs, paraphernalia charges and more.
