A New Jersey Defense Lawyer that Fights Charges of Possession of Marijuana

If you have been charged with a marijuana related offense, or are facing other drug charges, you will be facing a confusing system of legal processes, hearings and court dates. Most people don’t know what to do next or how to help themselves avoid the consequences of a criminal conviction. That’s why your best option is to hire an experienced criminal defense lawyer.

Other Consequences of Facing Marijuana Charges

Even if it is your first offense for a marijuana crime in New Jersey, you need an experienced New Jersey marijuana defense lawyer to minimize the impact a conviction could have on your future. Possession of over 50 grams of marijuana and distribution of any amount of marijuana in New Jersey is a felony that may result in a permanent criminal record.

A marijuana crime conviction could exclude you from certain types of employment and could even impact your current job. If we cannot obtain an immediate dismissal, we may still be able to get you into a Pre-trial Intervention Program (PTI). PTI is a diversionary program that allows you to put your case on hold for a short period of time. Completion of PTI (usually a 1 year program) results in a dismissal of your charges at the end of the PTI term.

The Law Offices of William D. Ware, Esq., Challenge the Evidence. All of It.

Illegal Search and Seizure: Most defendants’ marijuana charges arise as a result of a police-initiated search of their person, car or home. Unlike many other New Jersey lawyers, Mr. Ware has analyzed police conduct on a daily basis for years and argued hundreds of motions to suppress the evidence. Our drug charges defense attorney immediately knows whether or not your constitutional rights to be free from illegal searches and seizures have been violated. If the police acted inappropriately, we do not hesitate to file a motion to suppress the evidence and seek to have the case dismissed.

Police Conduct and Procedures: Also, if you have been “set up” by an informant or undercover police officer, our attorneys are skilled at challenging the police procedure used to arrest you or any police-initiated identification procedure used to implicate you in the crimes charged.
