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

Essex County, NJ Criminal Defense Attorney

Whenever an individual is facing criminal charges, it is essential that they seek legal representation from a highly experienced lawyer. The days immediately following an arrest are crucial for collecting witness testimony and for gathering evidence. Whether that evidence can work against you, or to set you free, you will need the help of an Essex County criminal defense lawyer by your side that can protect your legal rights.

You have to be extremely careful about what you say and do when you are under investigation, because for the most part law enforcement will not be on your side. They may have already made up their minds about you, and when that's the case, your greatest ally will be your defense attorney. At my firm, The Law Offices of Christopher G. Porreca, P.C., I have helped countless clients retain their freedom when they could have been lost to the New Jersey criminal justice system.

Essex County Criminal Defense Lawyer Defending Your Rights

Just because someone is arrested, does not mean that they will end up being convicted. In every case I take on, I make it my personal mission to pick apart the prosecution's case against my client. Law enforcement is prone to error just like anybody else, and it's my job to search for any errors or violations made against your legal rights. If there was a mistake or an error made, I will make every effort to find it.

I have a very good sense of what types of challenges you are presently up against and I will fight for your legal rights so you can look forward to a brighter future! I can handle all types of criminal charges ranging from minor theft crimes to DWI , to drug crimes, sex crimes and even manslaughter or murder. I urge you to contact my office so we can begin taking action towards finding an effective solution for your case.
