Making Sure Your Side of the Story Is Told
Stalking is similar to criminal harassment in that, in order to convict you, the prosecutors need to prove that you acted with an intent to harass or annoy the alleged victim. The main difference is that stalking involves repeatedly coming physically close to someone.
New Jersey takes stalking cases very seriously. If you are accused of stalking a current or former spouse or romantic partner, you may be facing domestic violence penalties.
There are two sides to every story. If you hire me to represent you, I will make sure your side is told. I will also carefully investigate the facts of your case in order to back up your defense with credible evidence. I am fully prepared to go to trial if necessary to protect your rights.
