Reasons to Believe You Can and Should Appeal Your NJ Criminal Conviction

Each and every NJ criminal case is different — as different as the circumstances of the alleged crime, the plaintiff and defendant, the attorneys involved, the jury members and even the judge who presided over the case.

South Jersey criminal defense attorney Jill Cohen has successfully won many appeals in cases such as DUI, assault, domestic violence and restraining orders, traffic offenses, and even homicides.

It’s important to choose someone who has worked on both sides of the courtroom, someone who understands people — how they think, act and make decisions.
