Drug Offenses

Respected Bergen County Drug Crime Defense Lawyers

Illegal drugs have a consistent presence in American culture. While they are glamorized on TV and in the movies, they are demonized by politicians and law enforcement. At Aretsky Law Group, P.C., in Bergen County, New Jersey, we are committed to representing people charged with drug offenses, in New Jersey municipal courts.

Effective Drug Crime Defense Attorneys

Drug use is pervasive across all social, generational, and economic boundaries. None-the-less, the penalties for drug crimes continue to escalate. Our firm has more than fifteen years of experience representing first time offenders charged with a drug crime and other related offenses:

  • Drug possession, including marijuana, cocaine, heroin, ecstasy, and meth
  • Possession of a controlled substance
  • Possession with intent to distribute
  • Illegal search and seizure
  • Failure to comply with a search warrant
  • Money laundering
  • Drug sales
  • Cultivation of marijuana
  • Facilitating a drug transaction
  • Drug trafficking

Our primary objective in drug cases is to minimize the consequences faced by our clients. In many cases, our clients are able to avoid jail by entering into a Conditional Discharge Program. This program allows first time offenders to have their drug cases diverted from the standard criminal process. In exchange, they must complete a six-month to three-year period of supervision.

While we are dedicated to protecting our clients’ legal interests, we recognize that antagonizing prosecutors is not the most effective way to represent our clients. When appropriate, we work with prosecutors to have charges reduced, dismissed, or to minimize the consequences of a guilty plea.
