South Jersey’s Criminal Defense Lawyer

If you have been arrested or charged with a crime, you need a lawyer working aggressively on your behalf to protect your rights. Failure to hire the right criminal defense lawyers could have tremendous consequences as many convictions result in prison sentences and a lifelong criminal record. Do not place your future in the hands of a law firm unwilling or unable to give it the attention it deserves.

Aita Law, LLC is dedicated to protecting the rights of accused individuals throughout South Jersey. With over 20 years experience in New Jersey’s municipal, state, and federal courts, we have successfully defended individuals accused of crimes ranging from petty offenses and misdemeanors to felonies.

Impact of Criminal Convictions

Being charged with a crime can forever change the course of one’s life. Criminal convictions can lead to the loss of one’s freedom, employment, reputation, and future job prospects. We understand the fear and stress this creates for families and work tirelessly to quickly resolve the matter. We represented thousands of individuals accused of crimes obtaining countless defense verdicts and helped those convicted of crimes avoid jail time with successful probation deals.

We provide aggressive criminal defense representation to individuals charged with both violent and non-violent crimes, including:

  • Assault
  • Battery
  • Burglary
  • Domestic Violence
  • Drug-related crimes
  • Gun Possession
  • Misdemeanors
  • Murder
  • Official Misconduct
  • Resisting Arrest
  • Sex crimes
  • Stalking
  • Theft
  • White Collar crimes

 

Aggressive representation does not end when the court case is over. Every individual who has served their time deserves a fresh start. We continue to help individuals convicted of a crime with the process of expungement once they have completed their sentence.

All Accused Individuals Have Rights

Every individual charged with a crime has certain constitutional rights that must be protected throughout the criminal process. The courts, police, and prosecutors must afford rights for all those accused of criminal actions under the Fourth Amendment, which prohibits illegal searches and seizures; the Fifth Amendment, the right for the defendant to remain silent and not be forced to testify against themselves; the Sixth Amendment, the right to have a lawyer and a speedy trial by jury; and the Eight Amendment, the right to reasonable bail and the prohibition of cruel and unusual punishment.

Potential Criminal Charges

Under New Jersey law, individuals can be charged with a wide range of criminal offenses categorized as traffic violations, local ordinance violations, disorderly persons offense, and first, second, third, or fourth-degree crimes. Individuals charged with first or second-degree crimes typically face jail time if convicted. First degree crimes, such as murder, aggravated manslaughter, and armed robbery, could result in a prison sentence from 10 years to life without parole in a New Jersey state prison. Individuals convicted of a second-degree crime, such as sexual assault, manufacturing or distribution of certain controlled substances, or theft in excess of $75,000, may face up to 10 years in a New Jersey state prison.

Individuals with no prior convictions charged with third or fourth-degree crimes, such as weapons offenses, certain drug offenses, or possession of marijuana generally face little to no jail time with monetary fines and probation. Charges of disorderly conduct offenses typically are handled by the municipal court with smaller fines and less than a year of jail time. Common disorderly conduct offenses include simple assault, harassment, shoplifting, and possession of marijuana for personal use.

“Our son was facing very serious felony charges that could have impacted him for the rest of his life. Although the crime was a non-violent offence it was being taken very seriously by the police and the district attorney. After months of investigation we were notified that there would be an arrest and felony charges. Ken was with us through the investigation and arranged for our son to turn himself in for booking to avoid a public arrest. He was on the phone with us constantly and took our calls at all hours of the day and night. More importantly he was constantly on the phone with the investigators and district attorney pointing out facts that were favorable to our side of the story. In the end Ken arranged for a plea deal that wound up with a probation that will end with the charges being dropped upon successful completion of the probation terms. We didn’t even know that was possible. We will use Mr. Aita to expunge the arrest record when the time comes and now our son has his future back. We could not be more pleased. The process is so stressful and traumatic that you need an attorney like Mr. Aita to guide you through it.”
