Criminal Law

If you have been charged with a crime, you need immediate and aggressive legal counsel. Prosecutors and police officers are not on your side. They want you to plea bargain immediately to make your case "go away." However, you should know that your legal matter cannot simply disappear. It will appear on your record as you apply for employment, education and residency.

  • DUI/drunk driving
  • Drug crimes
  • Theft crimes, including shoplifting
  • Violent crimes, including assault
  • Violations of immigration/naturalization law
  • Traffic violations

A Dedicated Criminal Defense Attorney Attending To Every Detail Of Your Case

New Jersey criminal defense lawyer Joy Anderson represents clients charged with misdemeanor and felony crimes. She conducts in-depth investigations and tailors strategies toward the best possible outcome. In many cases, she has identified issues involving a lack of a search warrant or violation of Miranda rights.

Protecting Your Rights And Looking Out For Your Best Interests

In addition to serving as an aggressive advocate in criminal court, we spend time with our clients to counsel them on their rights and the need to avoid self-incriminating statements. Miranda law is well known throughout the state and country, not only by its name but by the numerous police procedural shows on television. Simply stated, many in law enforcement outright fail to inform suspects of their Fifth Amendment rights, including:

  • The right to remain silent.
  • Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law
  • Right to an attorney (one will be appointed for you, if you cannot provide one)

Getting to the facts helps us secure the best outcome on your behalf, allowing you to move on with your life. Some criminal matters can be resolved through plea bargains that ask for reduced charges, downgrade of charges to municipal court or outright dismissals. However, if the best option is the courtroom, she will put her trial skills to work for you.

The founder of the Law Office of Joy Anderson, LLC, in Monmouth County is candid in all her dealings with clients. They have questions regarding the severity of drug or drunk driving charges. She has answers that are open, honest, and may be something her clients do not want to hear.
