Bergen County Drug Defense Attorneys
If you were charged with a drug crime in New Jersey, you could be facing many years in prison and/or many years of probation/parole. Even if the charge seems relatively minor, the consequences of a conviction could be long lasting.
At Brickfield & Donahue, we provide vigorous defense for those facing drug charges. As former prosecutors, our attorneys, Paul B. Brickfield and Joseph R. Donahue, know the arguments the government is likely to use to obtain a conviction. With that knowledge, our firm is often able to counter those arguments and work toward dismissing the case or having the charges reduced

Get Thorough and Comprehensive Defense
Drug charges are often filed with little corroborating evidence. In many cases, the government only has the word of another defendant or a confidential informant (usually a criminal trying to get a lesser sentence).
Our New Jersey criminal defense team will investigate thoroughly and marshal the evidence to determine if the prosecution has strong evidence against you. If they do not, we will not hesitate to take a case to trial. If they do, we will give you honest advice about your chances at trial and seek the best possible result with your input and direction.
Information for First-Time Criminal Offenders
In New Jersey, first-time drug offenders may qualify for Pre-trial Intervention (PTI) or a Conditional Discharge if they have no history of criminal activity. These diversion programs act as a period of probation, after which charges are dismissed (assuming full compliance with the terms and conditions of the program(s)). Contact us for more information.
