Union City & Teaneck Drug Crime Attorneys

Defending Against Drug Charges in New Jersey

Being convicted of a drug offense can have serious, life-long consequences for both you and your family. A conviction can lead to fines and prison time, cause the loss of your driving privileges, prevent you from remaining in the United States if you’re not a citizen, and limit your employment and housing opportunities.

When you’re accused of a drug offense, it’s important to consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney in Teaneck or Union City as early as possible. The Law Offices of Jeffrey S. Hasson, P.C. can help you understand your rights and your options.

New Jersey drug offenses include:

  • Possession of a Controlled Substance
  • Intent to Distribute a Controlled Substance
  • Possession of Drug Paraphernalia (such as pipes or anything used for planting, growing, packaging, ingesting, inhaling, or injecting a controlled substance)
  • Trafficking
  • Manufacture of a Controlled Substance

Controlled substances include illegal drugs like:

  • Marijuana (pot or weed)
  • Ecstasy
  • Cocaine (including crack)
  • Heroin
  • Methamphetamines (speed, meth, or ice)
  • Psilocybin (“magic mushrooms”)
  • LSD

It is also illegal to possess certain legal drugs, such as Ambien, Xanax, and anabolic steroids, without a valid prescription.

How We Fight Your Drug Crime Charges

The Law Offices of Jeffrey S. Hasson, P.C. has decades of experience defending people accused of drug offenses and can help you evaluate your options and decide on the best strategy for your situation. The attorney may advocate to get the charges dismissed, seek Pre-trial Intervention (PTI) or a Conditional Discharge if you’re a first offender, or have your case referred to Drug Court (a program to keep non-violent offenders out of jail). Your New Jersey criminal defense attorney may also negotiate a plea bargain to reduce your potential sentence.

The attorney may be able to have the evidence against you thrown out, and the case dismissed, by showing that evidence was obtained via an illegal search of your person or property. Any statements you made may be barred as evidence if you weren’t properly advised of your rights (the “Miranda Warnings”), if you were deprived of an attorney, or if you were coerced to confess.

When you’re facing the serious consequences of being accused of a drug offense, protect your rights and contact our experienced criminal defense lawyers in Teaneck and Union City at the Law Offices of Jeffrey S. Hasson, P.C.
