Essex County

The Essex County Superior Court is located at 50 West Market Street in Newark New Jersey. The Court presided over indictable criminal charges. Examples of this type of charge are Possession of CDS, Distribution in a School Zone or Park, Aggravated Assault, Theft over $200, Prescription Drug Fraud and Gun Possession offenses.

This is just a few examples of the sort of criminal cases the court hears, but one thing is for certain. Attorneys at our firm have the experience and track record to give you the best shot at beating the rap. If your case goes to trial, we have the not guilty verdicts under our belt.

Today I have a greencard, and I cannot thank Mr. Lubiner enough for all the hard work he put into my case. He is one of the most committed and knowledgeable lawyers I've worked with, and I highly recommend him and his practice. Lilia B.
I want to thank LS&P Lawyers for its help and guidance throughout my application. They made my process smoother and easier. Rob and I felt a lot more secure having them as our lawyers.

Before going to LS&P Lawyers, I consulted 3 immigration law firms and all of them told me they can't help me and will not be responsible for me being deported back to the Philippines. At LS&P Lawyers, the attorneys told me that I will get my green card and showed me the legal basis. I felt greatly relieved and a new hope emerged. I'm so thankful to God for this blessing and commend LS&P Lawyers because I am now a green card holder. Conrado B.
