Common Defense Techniques Used in Criminal Cases in Atlantic County

There is a wide range of defense techniques that an experienced Atlantic County criminal defense attorney can use. Some of the most common defenses include:

Infringement on constitutional rights

For example, if law enforcement officers carried out a search and seizure of your property erroneously and this resulted in your arrest, the results of the search can be omitted in your case. Without this evidence, the prosecution may not be able to establish your guilt.

Lack of evidence

The prosecution bears the burden of providing evidence that will show beyond a reasonable doubt that you were responsible for the crime you have been accused of. The legal standard of proof for criminal cases in New Jersey is high. Your attorney can argue against the evidence to show that the evidence is insufficient and therefore get your charges dismissed.

Contact our law firm to schedule a consultation with an experienced attorney and get started working on your defense right away.
