New Jersey Criminal Lawyers Schwartz Posnock

Drug crimes are severely punished in New Jersey. Given the high amount of drug-related crimes in New Jersey, state policy punishes these offenders to the greatest extent of the law. New Jersey Statute 2c:35-1.1 states, “it is the intention of the Legislature to provide for the strict punishment, deterrence, and incapacitation of the most culpable and dangerous drug offenders…so as ultimately to reduce the demand for illegal controlled substances and the incidence of drug-related crime.”

There has been heightened attention to a crackdown on drug crimes and the overall prosecution of offenders has toughened. Whether you are a juvenile or an adult, being accused of a drug crime can have a serious impact on your future successes. If you have been accused of a drug crime in the state of New Jersey, or in the Freehold courts of New Jersey, it is essential that you hire an experienced Criminal Defense Attorney to protect your legal rights and to help defend your reputation and future.

At Schwartz & Posnock, the experienced criminal defense attorneys have successfully represented clients charged with:

  • Possession of drugs
  • Possession of drugs with the intent to sell drugs
  • Sale, trafficking or distribution of drugs
  • Drug paraphernalia possession
  • Manufacturing and cultivation of drugs
  • Violation of medical marijuana laws

The penalties an offender faces when convicted differ depending on the type of drug and the amount possessed during the crime. The experienced criminal defense attorneys at Schwartz & Posnock have offered legal support to clients charged with crimes involving: prescription drugs, heroin, oxycodone, other opiates, marijuana, methamphetamines, cocaine, ecstasy and other “designer” drugs, steroid, hallucinogens, and controlled and prescription drugs like Vicodin, and Xanax.

Our experienced criminal defense lawyers litigate vigorously and file motions to exclude the use of drugs seized from our clients and take cases to trials. If a motion to suppress or trial is not feasible, we negotiate to help clients avoid jail time. Some of the alternatives we work towards in lieu of jail time include drug court probation, drug counseling, and home detention. The attorneys at Schwartz & Posnock will work hard to ensure that your reputation, privacy rights, and liberties are upheld, while helping you to avoid time in jail and steep fines and penalties.
