It’s perfectly reasonable to have questions about criminal law. Here are some frequently asked questions about criminal law in the state of New Jersey:

Q. Is it worth it to hire a criminal defense lawyer?

A. It’s not only worth it when you’ve been charged with a serious crime, but it’s also essential to hire a criminal lawyer who serves Monmouth County, NJ, and other areas. Fully knowing the rules of the law, a criminal attorney will be able to defend your case, and help reduce your bail while evaluating your charges.

Q. What should I do if I’ve been arrested?

A. If you’ve been arrested, you should only speak to the police when you’re answering questions about your identification (name, birth date, address). Anything else you say can and will be used against you in the court of law. If they ask you questions about anything other than your identification, we strongly advise you to tell them you wish to speak to a lawyer.

Q. What should I tell my attorney?

A. Your attorney is there to do everything they can to defend you. You should tell them the full facts of what happened so they can defend you to the best of their abilities. No matter what you say to your attorney, they are not compelled to tell that information to anyone.
