Criminal Defense

Our attorneys earn their reputation every day by navigating a clear, results-driven legal path for our clients.

Criminal Defense

No one is immune from a lapse in judgment or an ill-advised decision. This includes those facing criminal charges because of such momentary transgressions. But it also applies to police and prosecutors who wrongfully arrest and charge innocent people for crimes they did not commit. In either situation, a criminal defendant has a lot at stake – their career, reputation, rights, and even their freedom. 

At Ansell Grimm & Aaron, our New Jersey criminal defense lawyers understand how disconcerting, distressing, and disorienting it is to be charged with a crime. We know that for most people, the charges they face are their first interaction with the criminal justice system. Unfamiliarity with the process, speculation about the consequences of a conviction, and not knowing what to do or where to turn can be both paralyzing and terrifying.

Aggressive Courtroom Advocates and Staunch Personal Allies During a Difficult Time

In your criminal case, our goal is to obtain an acquittal, dismissal, or reduction of the charges against you and also provide direction, reassurance, and a strategy designed to end your ordeal as quickly and on as favorable terms as possible. We will listen to you without judgment, answer your questions with clarity and candor, and aggressively assert and protect your rights.

Our lawyers are skilled and zealous advocates in the courtroom, challenging prosecutors at every turn and mounting robust defenses against even the most daunting charges. But we also seek negotiated resolutions with prosecutors when appropriate to preserve our client’s rights and reputation and minimize the impact the case can have on their life.

Ansell Grimm & Aaron’s Criminal Defense practice group includes lawyers with extensive and diverse backgrounds working in New Jersey’s criminal justice system, including former prosecutors, a former presiding Criminal Division judge, and former public defenders. These experiences not only provide our attorneys with actionable insights into how prosecutors and judges think and make decisions but also form the foundation of collegial and productive working relationships with prosecutors and law enforcement that facilitate positive negotiated outcomes.  

Our well-earned reputation for effective criminal defense representation is why many prominent local figures, including politicians, religious leaders, police officers, lawyers, doctors, and iconic musicians, have turned to Ansell Grimm & Aaron during their most trying times.
