Being accused of a crime (“felony”) or a disorderly persons offense (“misdemeanor”), whether in a New Jersey Superior Court or in a local Municipal Court is a very serious matter. If you are convicted of a crime or even a disorderly persons offense it can result in permanent and potentially devastating consequences — personally and professionally — therefore, it is imperative that you choose an attorney with the skill, experience and knowledge to protect your rights and aggressively defend you from beginning to end.

The importance of choosing the right attorney cannot be understated. First and foremost, you must choose a lawyer who specializes in criminal defense in the State of New Jersey. Steven E. Nelson and Matthew Jordan have almost forty years of experience specializing in defending the accused in New Jersey courts for offenses ranging from the most serious, such as murder, kidnapping, drug kingpin, drug distribution, sexual assaults, aggravated assaults, gun-related offenses and robbery, to less serious matters, such as possession of marijuana, most juvenile delinquency matters, drunk driving and other motor vehicle/Municipal Court cases.

Our criminal attorneys, Steven Nelson and Matthew Jordan, recognize and understand the stress and anxiety experienced by those who find themselves involved in the criminal justice system as an accused. They also understand the effect that the process and potential consequences can have on the client’s family. That is why they take the time to make the effort to establish a relationship with their client that is unique in the profession and often continues long after the case is resolved. Mr. Nelson’s and Mr. Jordan’s clients know their lawyer. It is that personal attention, compassion and client dedication that ranks them a cut above the rest.
