NJ Criminal Defense and Serious Adult Crimes

Indictable Offenses Defended By Criminal Law Attorneys in NJ

The most serious offenses in New Jersey, also called "crimes" or "indictable offenses", are heard in the Law Division of Superior Court.

Any offense that has a maximum punishment of more than six months in jail is considered a crime.   Crimes are categorized by degree, with First Degree being the most serious, and Fourth Degree being the least serious.

If you have been charged with an indictable offense, you have certain constitutional rights that include:

  • The right to an attorney
  • The right to a jury trial
  • The right to question any of the State’s witnesses

Our lawyers make sure you are well represented on these serious charges.
