New York And New Jersey Sex Crime Lawyers
There are few crimes with a greater stigma attached than sexual assault, rape, child molestation, child pornography and other sex crimes. In addition, the penalties can be severe, even for first-time offenders.
At DiLorenzo & Rush, our New Jersey sexual assault lawyers have been aggressively defending individuals in northern New Jersey and southern New York for sex crime charges since 1997. We are not here to judge – we are here to help. Our offices are conveniently located in Hackensack and the Bronx.
Our attorneys have extensive knowledge of New York and New Jersey law regarding sexual assault and other sex crimes. Prior to going into private practice one of our Hackensack sex crime defense attorneys served as a legal aid attorney in the Bronx and as a judicial clerk to a New Jersey Supreme Court Justice. We have handled thousands of cases and have hundreds of hours of trial experience. We have the skills necessary to persuade a jury to acquit and to negotiate effective plea bargains to minimize jail time and fines. Our attorneys also work in both federal and state courts.
Once you are labeled as a sex offender, it will stay with you forever
In New Jersey and New York, you will be publicly identified as a sex offender in accordance with Megan’s Law, and will be labeled a level 1, 2 or 3 offender in accordance with the degree of danger the state feels you represent to the public. If a sex offender moves anywhere within the state, depending on your level, residents of the community may be informed of your background and where you live, and you will be required to register with the local Police. Failure to register is another crime.
For these reasons and others, if you have been charged with a sex crime it is in your best interest to retain the services of an experienced Bergen County sexual assault lawyer.
