When you have been arrested, placed under investigation or charged with committing a criminal offense in New Jersey, choosing the right criminal defense lawyer can be the most vital component to protecting your future and your freedom.  Selecting the right defense lawyer can also be one of the most difficult decisions that you have to make. At Gelman Law, LLC, we strive to make the decision simple for our potential clients. We provide more than high-quality legal defense—we offer every client the expertise of a former Burlington County prosecutor who uses his substantial resources to protect your rights in and out of court.

Our founding attorney, David Gelman, believes in taking a different approach to legal representation.  Rather than churning out cases via the plea-bargaining process to maximize our own profits, we focus instead on putting in the hard work necessary to attain the most successful possible outcome in your case.  We always keep what’s at stake for our clients at the forefront of our minds when negotiating with the prosecution and advocating for your rights in court: Your reputation. Your freedom. Your future. Whether you’ve been arrested on first-time DWI charges, simple possession of marijuana or are facing the substantial jail time that can accompany weapons charges, drug charges, sex crimes or violent crimes like aggravated assault, our team is here to put our extensive knowledge of the criminal justice system to work for you.

Aggressive Criminal Defense Lawyer Represents Clients Facing Charges Ranging from Traffic Violations to Drug Crimes and Weapons Charges in New Jersey

With a broad range of legal experience, founding attorney David Gelman and his team are committed to providing every single client with the high-quality legal representation that they need to stay out of jail, protect their finances and return to their normal lives.  Much of our practice takes place behind the scenes, as we strive to negotiate reduced charges or even have charges dismissed based upon the evidence that we uncover in our own comprehensive, independent investigation of your case. We also have a nuanced understanding of options that may allow you to avoid formal prosecution altogether, and a significant number of our cases can be resolved through New Jersey’s conditional dismissal, conditional discharge or pre-trial intervention programs.

Our award-winning criminal defense team provides compassionate, aggressive legal representation to clients facing a broad array of charges in Camden County, Burlington County and elsewhere in New Jersey.

At Gelman Law, LLC, we do more than simply rely upon the evidence the prosecution shares about your case.  We work tirelessly to uncover every available piece of exculpatory evidence in your case and use that evidence to weaken the prosecution’s case.  We never pressure our clients to settle for a plea bargain and instead fight to ensure that the prosecution establishes every element of your case beyond a reasonable doubt by challenging the credibility of witnesses, the admissibility of evidence and whether your constitutional rights have been respected throughout the entire legal process.

If you or a loved one are facing criminal charges in Burlington County, Camden County or elsewhere in New Jersey, you don’t have a moment to lose.  Whether you are concerned with protecting your driving record or staying out of jail under New Jersey’s strict Graves Act sentencing rules, we have the substantial resources necessary to build a strong and effective defense based on your unique circumstances.  Contact our dedicated criminal defense lawyers today to see how we can put our skills to work defending your legal rights.
