Our New Jersey Criminal Defense Practice
We appear primarily in New Jersey courts, but also maintain a thriving nationwide criminal defense practice for federal offenses. We are equipped to handle criminal charges in all state and federal courts, including corresponding issues such as civil forfeiture and loss of licensing or employment. These include the most searched for classes of criminal cases, which are often categorized as:
Because criminal law intersects with civil and administrative proceedings, we urge prospective clients to broaden their search parameters. For example, a public employee charged with sexual impropriety may face criminal charges, from imprisonment to lifetime supervision as a registered sex offender, a civil suit for
money damages filed by an alleged victim, and administrative action covering both job forfeiture and loss of pension. This level of complexity and exposure requires more than entering a plea of not guilty: You’ll need skilled trial lawyers with extraordinary peripheral vision.
Firsthand Knowledge of Prosecutorial Tactics
Lawyers at Furlong and Krasny have served as state, county and municipal prosecutors, county counsel, and clerked for criminal part judges. Our attorneys have in-depth knowledge of prosecutorial and police procedures throughout the state. This means we know prosecutors’ weaknesses, as well as strengths, usually before they do.
Proven Trial Strategies and Intensive Preparation Techniques
We have tried literally hundreds of cases to verdict, with a remarkably high rate of success. While past performance is no guarantee of future results, it does illuminate our reputation for going to trial and winning. In fact, we assume every case is going to trial. We prepare that way, and our preparation brings results.
A Highly Regarded Resource for The Community And Other Lawyers
Furlong and Krasny is well-known among legal professionals and the general public. Our attorneys are frequently asked to give their views in the media , and routinely submit articles and briefs for publication in both legal and general interest outlets. We invite you to review those publications for insight into our reasoning abilities and how we handle high-profile cases.
We Represent You From The Beginning To The End Of Your Case
We believe in preparation. We are ready to represent you from the day you first call our law firm. If you select us to be your lawyers, we will stand by you until the day your interactions with the criminal justice system come to an end. Our work does not necessarily end when a verdict is returned. Our appellate and post-conviction practice can carry your case through the New Jersey Supreme Court or U.S. Supreme Court if the situation warrants.
