We Understand the Stakes of a Murder Charge in Hackensack, NJ

New Jersey law separates murder into three separate types. The first is when death is purposely caused or when serious bodily injury results in death. The second is when death is knowingly caused or serious bodily injury resulting in death is caused. The third type is called “felony murder” and is when someone causes the death of another during the commission or attempted commission of a robbery, sexual assault, burglary, arson, carjacking, kidnapping, terrorism, or criminal escape.

While you are not facing the death penalty in New Jersey, you are exposed to significant time in state prison. A minimum of 30 years of prison is mandated for murder before you are eligible for parole. The maximum sentence is life. If the offense is against a law enforcement officer or against a child under the age of 14 who was killed during the commission of a sexual crime, the sentence can be increased to life without parole.

“Was facing my first and only felony charge. Adam worked with me the whole way and made it so I had nothing to fear. Got my charge dropped to disorderly persons and walked out of the courtroom with no handcuffs! A consummate professional and just an all around great guy! Hire him! I highly recommend him!”

"Adam is a wonderful lawyer and a very knowledgable guy, he actually knew more about the laws on drug charges better than the judge at my case. I always felt pretty calm about the situation because i knew he'd have everything covered. I would hire him again without a doubt."

"Adam accomplished what, to me, was a minor miracle. I was looking at definite long loss of license, major fines and jail time for 2 separate incidents. He pulled out full and complete dismissals on both. He's now assisting family in another matter and so far she is perfectly thrilled with him. I recommend Adam to anyone needing a good defense attorney."
