Criminal defense

Any arrest for a crime, whether for a misdemeanor or felony, is a pivotal point in someone’s life and often has lasting consequences. Even failing to pay parking tickets can result in an arrest and a criminal record.

If your personal freedom and financial livelihood hinges on the outcome of criminal charges, you owe it to yourself and your family to retain an experienced and aggressive defense attorney.

Here at the Law Office of Marc R. Gordon, we believe that personal contact is essential to the successful handling of your criminal case. And if need be, we will visit our clients while incarcerated. We will carefully listen to your version of events, and research the charges against you for any evidence that the police or prosecutor overstepped their boundaries. Throughout the process, we will strive to make the criminal justice system less confusing and intimidating for you.

Depending on the situation, we will negotiate with prosecutors if it is in your best interest, or if necessary, aggressively litigate in court to ensure that you have the best defense and that all your constitutional rights are protected.

If this is your first or second arrest, we may be able to have you qualify for special programs offered by the courts to keep you from being incarcerated, or where applicable, from even having a criminal record. In cases where an arrest results in an acquittal or where charges are withdrawn, we can apply for an expungement of the arrest and have your fingerprints and criminal photograph destroyed.

We handle a variety of criminal defense cases, including but not limited to:

  • Traffic violations
  • Summary charges
  • Expungements
  • Driving privileges and license restoration
  • Theft of property related crimes and retail theft (shoplifting)
  • Gun charges and drug crimes
  • Juvenile arrests
  • Protection from abuse (PFA)
