Crimes West Deptford Criminal Defense Lawyer John B. Brennan Can Help You Overcome

The Law Office of John B. Brennan handles a wide range of crimes, ranging from serious felonies to minor disorderly persons offenses. Some of these crimes come with fines of thousands of dollars and potential jail time. Some come with these as well as additional penalties such as license revocations, probation, the loss of voting rights, movement restrictions, and other limitations on what you can and cannot do. These restrictions can turn your life around in an instant and have long-term impacts on you, your family, and your loved ones.

Whatever legal challenges you may have and whatever the specifics of your criminal case, we are here to help. Criminal cases we routinely help our clients with include the following.

Theft, Burglary, and Robbery

Theft takes many forms, from stealing someone’s intellectual property, robbing a store, and identity theft, tax evasion, and money laundering. Fraud and forgery are also crimes, and some crimes come with the use of force or weapons which can raise the stakes for the accused.

Violent Crimes

Domestic abuse, aggravated assault 2C:12-1, sexual assault 2C:14-2, kidnapping 2C:13-1, murder 2C:11-3, and arson 2C:17-1 are examples of violent crimes. Some of these crimes can involve property damage as well. Depending on the specifics of your case, violent crimes can come with years of jail time and the lifelong stigma of a conviction. We can defend against some of these charges, such as assault, by showing that you had a legitimate fear for your well-being or were forced to defend yourself when the crime in question was committed.

Cyber and Non-Physical Crimes

Intimidation, harassment, blackmail, stalking, and cybercrimes all carry serious charges. The law is deliberately specific when it comes to these crimes because the accused must be found guilty beyond the shadow of a doubt for a conviction. As a result, there are many ways we can cast doubt that you were guilty or that a crime was even committed.

Other crimes we can defend you for include:
