Our Drug Possession Defense Attorney will Fight to Protect Your Rights

An arrest on drug charges can have very serious consequences. If you are convicted of possessing even a small amount of marijuana, you face suspension of your New Jersey driver’s license and loss of federal student loans. The consequences can quickly escalate depending on the type and quantity of drug.

At the Law Offices of Jeffrey W. Goldblatt, Esq. in East Brunswick and Freehold, we provide aggressive defense against drug charges and drug paraphernalia charges in Middlesex and Monmouth counties. We handle all types of drug cases, including:

  • Possession of cocaine, heroin, marijuana or prescription drugs such as Vicodin and OxyContin
  • Possession of illegal drug paraphernalia
  • Possession drugs in school zones
  • Possession with intent to distribute
  • Drug distribution

Consequences of Drug Charges

Possession of under 50 grams of marijuana or drug paraphernalia is a disorderly persons offense in New Jersey. While not considered crimes, a conviction will still result in a record that will be visible to colleges and employers conducting background checks.

All other drug offenses, including possession of marijuana weighing 50 grams or more, are crimes in New Jersey. Consequences of a drug conviction go beyond a fine and possible jail time. You will have a lifetime criminal record that could bar you from certain careers. You will lose the right to vote and be disqualified from serving on a jury. You will also be fingerprinted and forced to provide a DNA sample.

To protect your rights and your future, you should consult an experienced defense lawyer as soon as possible if you are facing drug charges.

Pretrial Intervention for Drug Charges

Attorney Jeffrey Goldblatt will explore the possibility of pre-trial intervention or conditional discharge, which would give you the chance to keep your record clean. If accepted into the program, a term of probation may be warranted with the charges being completely dismissed upon the successful completion of the probationary term. Other times, the transfer of your case to drug court may allow for a more favorable resolution.
