If you have ever had a lawyer represent you in a criminal case, or hired one for a family member, perhaps you encountered a lawyer who claimed he or she could get your case dismissed. That’s improper, but some lawyers do it anyway to lure you in. And when the case didn’t just get dismissed, and the lawyer did little to no work to put up a vigorous defense, you or your loved one were probably and understandably dissatisfied. When you hire a lawyer, you need to understand the reality of the criminal justice system. Cases just don’t get dismissed. Evidence doesn’t just get tossed out of a case every day by trial judges. This isn’t TV. This is real life. And to put up a solid defense in a criminal case takes effort, solid legal research, strategy, time and patience.
If you or someone close to you has been arrested or is awaiting trial in state court for a murder, an assault, a sex crime, robbery, a weapons offense or a drug crime, you should know the challenges you face. You may be facing a lengthy prison term, a substantial fine, a criminal record, and strict probation or parole conditions upon your release. These possibilities mean that you need to take action, and do it quickly, and rely on the advice of an experienced criminal defense attorney. Louis Charles Shapiro was named a Certified Criminal Trial Attorney by the New Jersey Board on Attorney Certification in 2009. He knows how to safeguard the interests of defendants facing life-changing convictions on charges such as homicide, weapons violations, sexual assault, robbery, drug crimes and juvenile offenses. He also represents people fighting traffic tickets and other matters in municipal court.
