Jersey City NJ Domestic Violence Lawyer

Domestic violence charges are always serious. However, in a recent blog article I wrote about four "DV" incidents in Jersey City this year that quickly spun out of control and resulted in deaths.

I recently added an informational page to the website about the New Jersey crime "Theft of Movable Property" and how it differs from other common theft crimes. Check it out when you get a chance.

New Jersey Restraining Order Attorney
In a recent article, I wrote about how to vacate a Final Restraining Order "FRO". In New Jersey, a victim of domestic violence can seek a FRO against the aggressor in Superior Court. If the FRO is put into place, it is permanent forever and can only be dismissed voluntarily by the original petitioner (victim) or by a motion to vacate by the defendant.

Butt Grab Lands Defendant In Hot Water

We've all seen the movies of the drunken bar patron grabbing at the waitress' behind and getting a fresh smack. However, what you don't see is what really happens when you do this stuff in New Jersey - 4th degree Criminal Sexual Contact, a Megan's Law offense. That means if you're convicted you become a registered sex offender...ouch.

Does the punishment fit the crime?

Caught Red-Handed

It's always a good idea to make sure you don't smile for the surveillance camera recording you spray paint buildings. This kid learned the hard - it wasn't his first time - and probably not the last.

New Jersey DUI Blood Draw

New Jersey DWI cases involving blood draws have been a hot topic lately and have been getting a lot of attention. Recent decisions in the US Supreme Court case Missouri v. McNeely and now with the NJ Appellate Division case State v. Jones are throwing fuel on the fire. I foresee this continuing to be a hot debate.

In the blog linked below I examined an article from NJ.com that seems to be referring to a dismissal for a DWI in Bayonne that was based on a blood draw.
