Glassboro Criminal Defense Lawyer John B. Brennan Can Help You Understand the Charges You Face and Will Represent You in Court

Crime is a public welfare issue. The law is designed to protect the welfare of the public against acts and different forms of harm that individuals and corporations can do to others. Common crimes we can represent you for include the following.


There are many forms of theft, such as illegally obtaining the intellectual property of someone else, robbing a business or home, and stealing someone’s identity. Tax evasion, money laundering 2C:21-25, grand theft auto, and fraud are also examples of theft.

Physical Harm

In most cases, harming others constitutes a crime. Armed robbery 2C:15-1, assault 2C:12-1, domestic violence 2C:25-19, murder 2C:11-5, rape 2C:14-2, kidnapping N.J.S.A. 2C:13-1, and arson N.J.S.A. 2C:17-1 are all serious crimes that harm others or their property.

Intimidation and Harassment

While many crimes are physical, you can also be charged with non-physical crimes, such as breaking a restraining order, blackmail, harassment, and “sexting,” which involves sending sexual messages or content using an electronic device. Non-physical actions that lead to harm, such as bullying that leads to suicide, can also constitute a serious crime.

Controlled Substance, Vehicle, and Gun Crimes

Many laws govern the use of controlled substances such as drugs and alcohol as well as vehicles and weapons. Using, producing, distributing, or harming others in any way that involves the above can constitute a crime.

In addition to the above, we can represent you for crimes and cases of other types, such as detention hearings, court violations, white-collar crimes, juvenile crimes, and more.

Frequently Asked Questions About Criminal Defense in Glassboro, NJ

FAQ: What will a lawyer do for me?

From start to finish, throughout your criminal case, a lawyer will help you every step of the way. This starts with determining whether you were arrested or charged legally and whether the charges brought against you are fair and commensurate with the crime in question. Your lawyer will also argue to disprove the claims that have been made against you, prove you are innocent, and weaken the arguments against you. Your attorney will also work to have any imposed sentences or fines reduced while working with the court and other relevant parties toward some form of reconciliation and/or settlement.

FAQ: Should I plead guilty to lower my sentence?

We generally advise against doing this without speaking to an attorney first, because by taking a plea bargain you are admitting guilt in exchange for a lower sentence, which immediately labels you as guilty of the crime in question even if you are innocent. Convictions can stay with you for years, even for life, and our job is to represent you and fight to have the charges you face dismissed. Depending on the specifics of your case, there may be a reason to go for a plea bargain, but you should speak with a Glassboro criminal defense lawyer from The Law Office of John B. Brennan first to determine whether doing so is in your best interests.
