At Schiller & Pittenger, P.C., we believe that a successful criminal defense lawyer must have experience on both sides of the system in order to effectively represent their clients. As former prosecutors, all of our attorneys have valuable insight into how to defend our clients against the most aggressive prosecution.
We have contended a wide range of charges, including the following:
In some instances, we can work to clear or reduce your claims if your constitutional rights have been violated. Such violations can occur if an officer does not give your Miranda warning or otherwise violates your Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination. Unlawful searches and seizures are also in violation of your rights. Our attorneys can analyze your case to determine whether any of your rights have been violated. Such information, when used in court, can be critical for an effective defense.
Drinking and driving is taken seriously in New Jersey. This is demonstrated by the harsh penalties given such as fines, jail time, forfeiture of license, and community service. Because of the strict nature of local drinking and driving laws, our legal office provides defense against DUI charges. We have the knowledge needed to help you challenge your charges of drinking and driving.
If you are facing criminal charges, our Westfield criminal defense lawyers are ready to defend you. We have handled over 100 Superior Court cases and can aggressively seek the reduction or dismissal of your charges.
