We represent for all criminal matters in all of New Jersey.  The first step in defending a criminal offense is to understand what you are being charged with and why you are being charged with it.  When you call us we will first explain your charges and then explain a detailed strategy to defend those charges.  We provide our best legal services with proven results at an affordable rate. 

Drug Crimes

We represent for Drug Possession offenses and distribution offenses.  If you are charged with one of the following it could have terrible consequences. 

  • Possession of Drugs such as heroin, cocaine, prescription drugs, methamphetamine, etc.
  • Drug Manufacturing
  • Drug Paraphernalia

Assault and Battery

We routinely represent for clients charged with:

  • Simple Assault
  • Aggravated Assault
  • Battery
  • Vehicular Homicide
  • Assault with a Deadly Weapon


Your shoplifting charge may be more serious that you think.  We routinely represent for shoplifting charges whether they be minor or severe. 

Sex Crimes

Endangering the Welfare of a Child ( NJSA: 2C:24-4 )

We have extensive experience in defending possession of child pornography charges.  It is not a defense to say that you believed the individual was over 18 years old.  It is illegal to knowingly distribute, possess, file-sharing, sell, copy, transmit, receive, view or have under your control pictures of videos of individuals under the age of 18 engaged in a prohibited sexual act. 

Enhanced Penalties:

If you are charged with more than 25 images of child pornography you will face a 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 sex offense must register under New Jersey’s Megan’s Law.  Megan’s law in NJ ensures your picture to be posted online and labeled a sex offender. 

Gun Crimes

Gun charges are extremely serious.  NJ has zero tolerance.  Simply transporting a gun in the incorrect manner can subject you to jail time.  So, for example, if you went thought the process to legally buy a handgun, however, you transport it to the range in your back seat you will be charged with a 2nd Degree crime and it is likely you will serve 42 months in jail before you are eligible for release, even if you have no prior record!

    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!

    Working with Shugar Law Office was a seamless and professional experience. I received my desired outcome (points removed) and did not have to do much except give them my case number. Price was reasonable as well. Would recommend to anyone looking for traffic related cases.
