Aggressive Defense to Street Crimes in New Jersey and New York City

Skilled trial attorneys challenge the prosecution in violent crimes

Street crime could apply to any offense that takes place in a public area, but it often denotes gang activity, violence or illicit drugs. Law enforcement responds aggressively to violent crimes. If you’re swept up in the dragnet that often follows an assault with a deadly weapon or some other street crime, you need equally aggressive representation to rebut the charges against you. Anthony J. Pope has more than 30 years of experience defending New Jersey and New York City residents against charges of violent crimes that carry serious consequences, including prison time. Your choice of attorney could be the single most important factor determining whether you are convicted or acquitted. When your liberty is on the line, you can trust the experienced attorneys at The Anthony Pope Law Firm.

Affirmative defenses and procedural challenges to criminal charges in New Jersey and New York

An experienced defense attorney is able to construct a viable defense wherever the facts are insufficient to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. Your attorney may assert a defense of mistaken identity, or may try to disprove elements of the case, such as intent. Even if you committed the act you’re accused of, the absence of the intent to commit a crime can invalidate the charge or at least lead to a lesser charge. Improper police procedure, such as a failure to give Miranda warnings, can induce a suspect to make a statement that tends to incriminate himself. Or an unlawful search can disclose evidence of illegal drugs. The prosecution may need that statement or the drug evidence to prove its case, but an alert and aggressive law firm for criminal defense can bar its use at trial. When it comes to establishing your best defense, our firm works hard to ensure you get the benefit of any doubt we can raise in the minds of the jury.
