Camden Criminal Lawyer: Qualified Representation for Drug Crimes

Four New Jersey men were recently charged with drug possession and paraphernalia possession as a result of being in the area of unrelated police activity. While directing traffic on the Garden State Parkway at the site of a search for an escaped inmate, police officers noticed the smell of marijuana coming from a passing vehicle. A search of the vehicle produced marijuana, ecstasy, and paraphernalia. Three of the men were given summons and the fourth was remanded to Ocean City Jail.

According to a recent Tribune News Service article, New Jersey is going against the national trend and arresting more people for simple marijuana possession from year to year. From 2012 to 2013, marijuana arrests increased ten percent alone. In 2013, arrests for possession of small amounts of marijuana hit a 20 year high with more than 24,000 arrests. Outside of New Jersey however, the country is experiencing a general decline in marijuana related arrests, partially due to the decriminalization and legalization of the drug in numerous states.

Reviews Matter

“First class representation. Michele was my son’s attorney after he made a slight but bad decision that hurt no one, but one that potentially could have a caused a lifetime of employment problems in the future, despite having a four year college degree. First of all Michele was very proactive in protecting his rights. Rights we were not even aware of. She provided quick and reliable answers to our questions. Before we met with her our anxiety and worry was insatiable. The peace we felt after our first consultation alleviated all that and we knew we picked the right attorney. Her excellent negotiation skills resulted in a settling his case quickly and without conviction.

We owe a debt of gratitude for her service. I was shocked at how much she was able to do for my son. She is a solid lawyer who is honest and works to insure the best possible outcome for her client is achieved.”
