Camden County NJ Drug Charges Lawyer
Criminal Defense Attorney with Offices in Collingswood, New Jersey
NJ prosecutors have really begun to crack down on drug crimes in recent years. Marijuana use has become so prevalent that other states are beginning to legalize it. However, law enforcement in New Jersey have been directed to be unforgiving when it comes to marijuana possession because marijuana is viewed as a gateway drug to other more harmful controlled substances. As a result, being caught with even a trace amount of marijuana can have serious repercussions, including heavy fines and jail time. Worst of all, a drug crime conviction will show up on your permanent record.

At The Law Offices of Jonathan F. Marshall, our staff of experienced criminal defense attorneys included a former municipal prosecutor, as well as a former county prosecutor. Having this kind of experience gives us a major advantage when we challenge the evidence in your drug case because we know how the other side thinks and can anticipate their arguments. We will thoroughly review the circumstances of your arrest to determine whether any constitutional issues should preclude the evidence against you from being used in court. In past cases, we’ve successfully challenged invalid motor vehicle stops and illegal searches when law enforcement failed to follow proper procedures.
Even if the evidence against you is particularly strong, we may be able to help you avoid prison by seeking alternative sentencing options such as Pre-Trial Intervention (PTI), drug court, conditional discharge, or a drug treatment program. As a result, a first-time marijuana offender can potentially avoid prison time and keep their permanent record clear of a drug crime conviction.
Call us today at 877-450-8301 so that we can look over your file and determine whether you might be eligible for admission into one of these programs.
