Experienced New Jersey Criminal Defense Attorney
Indictable Offenses | Disorderly Persons Offenses
Whether you are under investigation for a crime or have already been charged, a critical first step is to hire an experienced criminal defense lawyer. The criminal justice system can be intimidating and confusing, with the odds seemingly stacked against you and the language almost foreign. You want someone who understands both the law and the process, who will aggressively fight to protect your constitutional rights.
At the Hackensack offices of McNerney & McAuliffe, attorney Mark P. McAuliffe brings more than 25 years of criminal law experience to every client. Mark is certified as a criminal trial lawyer by the New Jersey Supreme Court, a recognition given to less than two percent of attorneys in the state. We take a comprehensive approach to the practice of law, handling all matters throughout the legal process, from a criminal investigation or arrest through trial and appeals, if necessary. We’ll work hard at all times to fight for your rights and minimize the consequences of a criminal prosecution.
Our Criminal Defense Practice
We take a comprehensive approach in our criminal defense practice, working closely with you throughout the process. We’ll advise you every step of the way and carefully examine the actions of law enforcement officers to ensure that any evidence against you is legally obtained and that you have been made aware of your rights.
We handle all types of criminal charges, including:
- Indictable offenses — burglary, theft crimes, white collar crimes, homicide and other violent crimes, sex offenses, weapons violations
- Municipal court prosecutions — DWI, lesser drug offenses, simple assault and traffic violations
Our attorneys can also help you seek to expunge a prior criminal record, so that it will no longer hamper you in a job search or when you try to find an apartment.
