Conviction Of Marijuana Crimes Can Have Serious Consequences

Experienced Legal Defense Is Necessary

Marijuana possession is perhaps the most commonly charged drug crime in New Jersey. Unfortunately, many people do not take these charges as seriously as they should, which leads to convictions and significant disruptions to the lives of the juveniles and adults involved.

At the office of James M. Porfido, Attorney at Law, we regularly defend young people and adults accused of marijuana offenses, including possession. Clients come to us from Morris County, Somerset County, Essex County and throughout northern New Jersey because they know we treat these cases with the seriousness they deserve.

Understanding What You Are Facing

Do not fall into the trap of thinking "it's just marijuana." Prosecutors take marijuana possession charges just as seriously as any other type of drug possession. A conviction can have widespread impact on you or your child, including:

  • Fines, jail time and possible driver's license suspension
  • Difficulty getting a job because of a criminal record
  • Limited college prospects
  • Difficulty renting an apartment or getting mortgage approval
  • Restrictions or challenges to travelling abroad

Aggressive, Intelligent Defense

As a former prosecutor, attorney Porfido is very familiar with the methods that will be used to try to convict you. He will investigate the circumstances surrounding your arrest to see if your Fourth Amendment rights were violated by an unlawful search, lack of a warrant or any other defects that frequently arise in drug crime cases. Whether you are a juvenile or an adult, you can rely on our firm to be by your side to fight against marijuana possession charges and any related offenses such as trafficking or cultivation.
