Drug Court in New Jersey
Skilled Parsippany Drug Crime Defense Attorney
The nation's attitude toward non-violent drug offenders has changed
dramatically over the last several decades. Jurisdictions around the nation
are now following the example set forth by the State of New Jersey's
Drug Court program. This program allows certain non-violent offenders
to avoid many of the traditional criminal penalties, and instead attend
a rehabilitation program.

skilled Parsippany drug crime defense lawyer who can help you build a
strong case for an alternative sentence. For many individuals accused
of drug crimes, drug court is an effective way to put this matter behind
them. When you retain my firm, I will take the time to learn about your
case, and will advocate for the best possible outcome on your behalf.

Who Is Eligible for Drug Court?
Drug court is designed for those who, apart from their drug use, are law-abiding
citizens. Those who wish to enter into a drug court program must be approved
through a clinical assessment and legal screening. The prosecutor must
also recommend you for the program, which is why it's so important
to retain a New Jersey drug crimes attorney who is an experienced negotiator.
You will not qualify for drug court if you:
- Have a prior conviction for a violent crime
- Are facing charges for a violent crime
- Committed the drug crime for profit, not to satisfy your addiction
- Used juveniles to sell or distribute drugs
