Seasoned New Jersey Criminal Defense Lawyer Aggressively Fights Marijuana Possession & Cocaine Possession Charges

Long before former First Lady Nancy Reagan declared war on drugs, marijuana, cocaine and numerous other controlled dangerous substances were the impetus for many serious drug charges. The term “drug crimes” is broad because drug-related charges can stem from anything from possession of an empty plastic bag that did, at some point, contain pot all the way to trafficking hundreds of pounds of cocaine or heroin.

South Jersey criminal defense attorney Jill Cohen knows how to fight for your constitutional rights. In fact, many times, Attorney Cohen has secured outright dismissals for her clients in NJ drug crime cases. Your rights need to be scrupulously protected and Ms. Cohen is not afraid to fight for you.

The Camden County criminal lawyers at the Law Offices of Jill R. Cohen have represented countless individuals in Camden County, Burlington County, Gloucester County, and across New Jersey who faced drug crime charges, including:

  • Possession of marijuana
  • Possession of drug paraphernalia
