Comprehensive Criminal Defense Throughout New Jersey And Pennsylvania

Our respected criminal defense lawyers routinely defend clients against misdemeanor and traffic charges, including:

  • Driving on a suspended/revoked license. Traffic offenses can make it difficult to get to work. Driving with a suspended license can lead to further license suspension and possibly jail. If you are a commercial driver, your very livelihood can be at risk. Our attorneys regularly help people facing traffic offenses and driving while suspended charges to keep their driving privileges.
  • DUI/DWI. One of the most common types of criminal cases is driving under the influence. Many people charged with a DUI make the mistake of not hiring a lawyer and simply pleading guilty, but the penalties for DUI can be economically devastating. The penalties for a DUI conviction can include a license suspension, ignition interlock, fines and even jail. Our experienced DUI lawyers can negotiate with the prosecution to obtain a reduced punishment. We can also ensure your constitutional protections were upheld during the traffic stop. Evidence obtained in violation of your Fourth Amendment right from illegal search and seizure is not admissible in court.
  • Drug possession. The severity of a drug possession charge is dependent on a number of factors, including the type and quantity of drugs, the location of the crime, prior convictions, purpose of possession and various other circumstances. A qualified criminal defense lawyer may be able to have evidence in your case thrown out due to an illegal search, or your lawyer may be able to work with the prosecutor to arrange a plea bargain or otherwise minimize the penalties you face.
  • Assault. An individual may be charged with assault for acting in a manner that causes another to feel they are in immediate harm, for attempting to physically strike or harm another individual, or for actually striking another. Prosecutors may seek a conviction for aggravated assault if the person causes severe injury or uses a deadly weapon to injure another. The qualified team of criminal defense lawyers at Winegar, Wilhelm, Glynn & Roemersma, P.C., can help defendants throughout New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and the greater Lehigh Valley understand their legal rights and defend themselves against assault charges.
  • Juvenile offenses. If you or a child of yours is under the age of 18 and is accused of committing a criminal act, that child could face severe consequences similar to adults who are convicted of such offenses. Juvenile crimes can result in juvenile detention, probationary suspension, home confinement, loss of driving privileges, and other repercussions. Unfortunately, these consequences are not automatically removed upon adulthood. Therefore, it is imperative that if you or your child is facing a juvenile charge, you consult with an attorney immediately.
