Law Office for Criminal Defense for Drug Cases

Shugar Law Offices provides comprehensive legal services for individuals who have been charged with drug possession or distribution. If you are found to be guilty of a drug offense, the consequences can be quite severe. Some of the cases we have successfully defended against include:

  • Possession
  • Distribution
  • Manufacturing
  • Paraphernalia

If you’ve been arrested and charged with any of the above drug crimes, don’t hesitate to get in touch with our team of New Jersey criminal defense attorneys.

Criminal Defense for Shoplifting Charges

Shoplifting charges are oftentimes more serious than you realize. Depending on the severity of the charges, you could be facing significant fines and the possibility of jail time. If you’ve been charged with minor or major shoplifting, contact our team for professional legal advice and a top-rated criminal defense for your case.

Criminal Investigation Lawyer for Sex Crimes

The Shugar Law Firm has extensive experience as a criminal investigation lawyer for sex crimes, including possession of child pornography. It’s vital for you to realize that claiming you believed an individual was over 18 years of age is NOT a defense for these serious charges. It is illegal to knowingly distribute, possess, file-share, sell, copy, transmit, receive, view, or have under your control any pictures or videos of individuals under the age of 18 engaged in a prohibited sexual act.

Enhanced Penalties: If you are charged with the possession of more than 25 images of child pornography, you will face mandatory minimum incarceration.

Megan’s Law: In accordance with New Jersey law, individuals who have been convicted, adjudicated delinquent, or found not guilty by reason of insanity for a sexual offense must register under Megan’s Law. This means your personal information and picture will be posted online and labeled as a sex offender.

Defending a Lawsuit in Criminal Court for Gun Crimes

Gun charges are a very serious offense and can carry significant penalties, including incarceration. New Jersey is a zero-tolerance state, meaning that punishments for gun crimes are severe. Simply transporting a gun in the incorrect manner can result in jail time. For example, even if you purchase a handgun legally yet transport it by placing it on the backseat of your car, you can be charged with a 2nd-degree crime and likely serve 42 months in jail before being eligible for release, even if you have no prior record!

Shugar Law Office specializes in criminal defense cases like those related to gun crimes. As one of New Jersey’s leading criminal defense attorneys, we have the resources, experience, and winning track record you need when faced with a lawsuit in criminal court. Contact us today to speak with our law office for your criminal defense.

    I called on a Saturday thinking I would just leave a message and Mr. Shugar answered the phone. I have a commercial license so my license is my life. [...] What I thought was really great is whenever they send you an email they also send you a text so you know to check your email. I knew when they sent letters to the court and knew when they spoke to the prosecutor and knew when the case was resolved. In the end I didn't get any points and they made it very easy. I am very pleased and definitely recommend them.

    Like everyone else, I got flooded with mail from every law office after my speeding ticket. I chose Shugar Law Office based on all the positive reviews and they were all spot on. [...] I received text updates each step of the way and emails when needed. The result was the normal fine, which I would've had to pay anyway, and ZERO points on my license. Thrilled over the result and I highly recommend Shugar Law Office. Excellent communication, easily accessible, and top notch service. Thank you!
