The term “criminal defense” covers a lot of ground, making it difficult to categorize for the benefit of someone searching for the right lawyer.
We’ve broken it down in accordance with the most common search terms, omitting “street crime” for a simple reason: if you’re facing a serious charge, you already know who we are, or you know someone who does. Feel free to call us to schedule a consultation.
State and Federal Offenses
For others visiting this site, it’s important to distinguish between state and federal practice. Relatively few firms do both. Jack Furlong and Scott Krasny routinely appear in state and federal courts in New Jersey and throughout the country. Mr. Furlong and Mr. Krasny are certified as criminal trial lawyers by the New Jersey Supreme Court, and are both AV Preeminent* peer review-rated through Martindale-Hubbell, the highest rating.
White Collar Criminal Defense
Persons accused of crimes in business — which often fall under the umbrella of white collar crimes — typically have no experience with the criminal justice system, so we’ve devoted a section to explain some of the issues that might help in choosing a lawyer.
Sex Crimes/Megan’s Law/Adam Walsh Act
Sex crimes are unique in criminal defense because the universe of collateral consequences — what happens after the criminal case is over — is so vast as to defy easy understanding.
Megan’s Law is a far-reaching law of its own, in which clients have to confront life-changing conditions even if they never spend a day in prison. The far-reaching impact of Megan’s Law is closely tied to privacy concerns and other interstate issues that arise as a result of the Adam Walsh Act — Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (“SORNA”).
