At the law office of Perrotta, Fraser & Forrester, LLC, each of our partners has more than 20 years of legal practice experience. One of our attorneys is a former police officer, with a solid understanding of the procedures police must follow in New Jersey drug crime investigations.
We take a strong stance on behalf of our clients, using our considerable experience, knowledge, skill and resources to protect your constitutional rights. Because of our longstanding reputation for effective advocacy, many of our new clients come to us as referrals.
We handle all matters related to the defense of any charge of possession of illegal drugs or controlled substances, including CDS (Controlled Dangerous Substances) prosecutions. We defend people charged with illegal possession of any type of contraband drug, from marijuana, crack or cocaine to heroin, meth and prescription drugs.
Many of the possession cases we take involve arrests made pursuant to a traffic stop. It can be common for police to charge everyone in the vehicle upon the discovery of drugs. When you hire us to defend you on possession charges, we will conduct a thorough investigation of the circumstances of your arrest.
We will confirm that there was probable cause for any warrant or for any search, seizure or arrest. If the police discovered the drugs as a result of a traffic stop, we will evaluate whether they had reason to pull the car over. If the police discovered the drugs in your residence as a result of evidence gathered from an informant, we will carefully question the credibility and motives of the informant.
We will aggressively raise all potential defenses to any drug possession charges. If the prosecution illegally obtained evidence, we will seek the exclusion of evidence or the dismissal of charges, if appropriate. We will also evaluate whether pre-trial intervention may benefit you.
