Representation for NJ Felonies Focused on Results

Man behind bars - NJ Felonies

Almost every crime is classified as a misdemeanor or a felony depending on the extent of the alleged damage, with felony crimes carrying harsher penalties. In the state of New Jersey, prosecutors work hard to gather evidence and build cases against felony offenders to illustrate their guilt. At The Law Offices of Joseph S. Scura, we work to challenge their evidence and give you the chance to tell your side of the story. Our Morristown felony defense lawyer has nearly a decade of experience fighting criminal charges, including felonies.

Types of Felony Offenses & Consequences in New Jersey

The information the judge finds can directly impact the outcome of your case, which is why working with a skilled lawyer is essential. While the penalties for a felony vary, they are generally severe. Some felony offenses even carry up to a lifetime in prison without parole.
