Being accused of committing a criminal offense is a stressful experience whether it is a misdemeanor charge or a felony crime. No matter what degree of a crime was allegedly committed, having to live with a criminal arrest, charge or conviction can cause individuals to suffer setbacks at work and in their personal lives. In addition, a criminal conviction can carry substantial fines, incarceration, probation, or community service hours. During this moment of stress or anxiety, you will need compassionate yet aggressive legal representation. The Khorozian Law Group provides tenacious criminal defense to those facing criminal charges in New Jersey.
Northern New Jersey Criminal Defense Lawyer
Over the years we have represented individuals accused of criminal offenses, such as:
- Disorderly conduct
- Domestic violence
- Drug possession / distribution
- Municipal court orders
- Resisting /alluding arrest / hindering arrest
- Theft crimes, including burglary and robbery
All accused people are legally presumed innocent until the point of conviction. To reach that, the prosecutor must prove “beyond reasonable doubt” that the defendant is guilty. The investigative phase of our representation begins the moment a client hires us. We will thoroughly examine all documentary evidence, talk to witnesses, and identify weaknesses in the prosecution’s case. We work closely with our clients, discussing and gathering all details pertinent to the defense.
Cost, Fees, Penalties
Penalties for misdemeanors and felonies are commensurate with the degree of the crime. First-degree criminal offenses such as murder or rape carry the most damning consequences while a fourth-degree crime such as robbery is less punitive.
- First-degree crimes can carry a prison sentence ranging between 10 years to life depending on the offense as well as fines in excess of $175,000.00 and suspension of your drivers license.
- Second-degree felony carries a prison sentence of 5-10 years in addition to up to $150,000.00 in fines and loss of license.
- Third-degree crimes can carry a 3-5 year prison term and fines up to $15,000.00
- Fourth-degree crimes receive eighteen months in jail and up to $10,000.00 in fines.
