Passaic County NJ Drug Charges Lawyer

If you or a loved one has been arrested and charged with a drug/CDS offense, it is critical that you retain an experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as possible.

Fighting Drug Charges in Wayne NJ
Alissa D. Hascup will review every aspect of your case to ensure that you are in a position to achieve the best possible outcome. First and foremost, she will review your case to ensure that law enforcement did not violate your constitutional rights in any respect. In the event that they did, she can attempt to have certain evidence thrown out of the case by filing a Motion to Suppress. Without evidence, the State cannot prove the case against you.
In the event that there are no suppression issues and you wish to resolve your matter by way of a plea agreement, Ms. Hascup will work with the State to evaluate whether you may be a viable candidate for the many diversionary programs available to drug offenders. Often times, participation in a diversionary program can help clients in avoiding jail time or, in some instances, avoiding a conviction altogether.
In the event that you wish to proceed to trial on your matter, Ms. Hascup is a battle-tested attorney who will fight aggressively and zealously on your behalf.
