Bergen County Your Case Becomes My Mission & Every Mission Is Possible

Bergen County Criminal Lawyer

Several Years of Recognition Through the Super Lawyers® Rising Stars℠ List

Criminal allegations are nothing to take lightly. When a person is accused of a crime, that individual runs the risk of having a conviction on his or her record and of receiving severe penalties. These might be penalties such as jail or prison time, probation, steep fines, driver's license suspension, etc. When you are in this type of situation, you need a hard-working legal advocate who will whole-heartedly defend your rights both in and out of the courtroom.

This is the type of representation you receive when you work with my legal practice, The Law Offices of Christopher G. Porreca, P.C. I am a Bergen County criminal defense attorney who has been included in the Super Lawyers® Rising Stars℠ list each year from 2006 through 2011. This is an honor that recognizes top attorneys who are either age 40 or under or who have no more than 10 years of experience in their law careers. It is given to no more than 2.5% of lawyers in each state. I am committed to providing each client with high-quality legal representation, regardless of the type of crime he or she is accused of.
