Defense in New Jersey Criminal and Municipal Courts

The Fuggi Law Firm and Robert R. Fuggi, Jr. have been involved in some of the most publicized civil and criminal trials. We handle high profile criminal defense cases at the State and Federal levels. Robert R. Fuggi is approved for practice in the Federal District Court of New Jersey.

If you have been charged with a misdemeanor or felony crime in New Jersey, it can feel overwhelming — the police and all the resources of the State are against you. But you do have two things on your side: a skilled, aggressive defense attorney and the law.

You cannot be convicted if there is insufficient evidence against you, or if the evidence against you was gathered in a way that violates your rights or the U.S. Constitution. As your defense law firm, the lawyers at the Fuggi Law Firm will ensure you don't pay the penalty for incomplete investigation or overzealous prosecution.

We have almost two decades of courtroom experience, fighting hard to protect our clients' rights in criminal and municipal courts in New Jersey against felony and misdemeanor charges and traffic violations. When you need an experienced defense lawyer on your side, contact the Fuggi Law Firm .

Record Expungement — Clearing your Criminal Record

For some types of crimes, New Jersey law allows people to clear their names and seal their criminal record after a certain amount of time has past. This is called "expungement." In practical terms, it means you no longer need to admit that you were convicted of a crime when you fill out a job or housing application. That can provide tremendous relief in a tight employment market.
