Those charged with Indicatable offenses in Elizabeth, must appear in the Union County Superior Court on 2 Broad St. in Elizabeth. The criminal cases are heard in both the main tower building as well as the Annex building. It is important to have early attorney involvement in criminal cases. Our familiarity with the Union County Court will take away some of the most stressful initial questions a defendant has. These include:
- What is a central intake appearance?
- Where do I go and how long will my first appearance date take?
- What do the charged mean and am a facing jail time?
- Can my attorney reschedule a date if I have a problem?
- Can my attorney talk to the prosecutor ahead of time to discuss my case?
- What do I need to bring with me?
These are just a few of the questions that you may have. But more importantly, you will want to know how we can help and what your defenses may be. I have represented thousands of people. In many instances they come to my office and say that they have no defense. This is not true. Just because you were caught, does not mean you are guilty.
The police are required to adhere to constitutional and procedural standards. These are safe guards for the citizen of this country. Overstepping these boundaries can have a direct impact on the State’s ability to proceed on your case. Examples of such things are illegal search and seizure, lack of probable cause, failure to provide discovery, destruction of evidence, etc.
As we prepare your case and apply our years of experience to your defense, it will become clear that we are working for the best outcome, not just one that you will be satisfied with. We want each client to be relieved at the end of the road.
We are fully aware that, no matter your level of sophistication and knowledge about the system, you need a lawyer that you can call on the phone, understand the process with, and be comfortable with on the road ahead. We are that Firm and we pride ourselves on those relationships with our client.
