Why You Need a DUI Lawyer

Please Call 201-692-0073

DUI Defense Lawyer • Hackensack, New Jersey
Why do you need a DUI lawyer? Can’t you just explain your case to the judge or plead guilty and get it over with? There are many different procedural issues involved, including arraignment, suppression hearings, testimony, evidence – and you may end up with far more penalties than you deserve. A DUI defense attorney who knows the laws, the courts, and the various options available can fight to protect your rights.

An experienced DUI / DWI defense attorney knows how to question the evidence and to make sure you are treated fairly by the court.

Was the blood alcohol content (BAC) accurate? If the alcohol breathalyzer test had an error range of plus or minus .03, that could put your blood alcohol level into a legal level.
Your lawyer can present your version of events. For example, if you were arrested while you were in a parked car, is there any evidence you drove the car while intoxicated? Are there witnesses who can corroborate your story?
Depending on how your case is presented, you could lose your license for 3 months or for a lifetime.
Penalties can include fines in the thousands, surcharges, jail, and community service. An experienced attorney knows how and when to present mitigating circumstances.
A DUI conviction can also mean points on your license, high insurance rates, and extended license suspension.
Were there procedural issues that could affect your case – no probable cause, no Miranda warning, or implied consent issues? Lawyer Benjamin Kelsen can spot these issues and use them on your behalf.
Experienced DUI defense lawyer Benjamin Kelsen can help you understand and deal with these issues. The DUI process can be confusing. Have an attorney and advisor who knows the process on your side.

White-Collar Crimes

Responding to White-Collar Charges

If you have been charged with a white-collar crime like theft or embezzlement, you may be surprised and confused. You may not believe you have done anything wrong or illegal, or you may have never realized the potential criminal consequences of the conduct with which you have been charged.

Don't face these charges alone. Get a skilled criminal defense lawyer on your side right away. Contact us at the Law Offices of Benjamin G. Kelsen, Esq., LLC to schedule a free initial consultation.

Facing Economic Crime Accusations

White-collar crimes are a general category for economic crimes, typically those that occur in the workplace on in commercial relationships such as between a seller and purchaser of goods or services. Among the most common white-collar crimes charged in New Jersey are:

  • Embezzlement
  • Theft
  • Theft of services
  • Theft from the office
  • Fraud
  • Extortion

The laws governing white-collar crimes are complex, and a detailed examination of the evidence is necessary in order to mount an effective criminal defense. Attorney Benjamin Kelsen has the experience to skillfully and successfully handle your case.

Helping You With Criminal Check-Bouncing Claims

One thing many people do not realize is that the common practice of writing post-dated checks is technically illegal in New Jersey. If you give someone a postdated check as payment for goods or services, and that check bounces, you can be charged with a crime, even if the person to whom you gave the check agreed to accept it.

Depending on the details of your check-bouncing case, you may be facing charges of check fraud, theft and/or theft of services. We can help you respond to these charges aggressively, arguing against the imposition of criminal penalties.

Taking Consequences Seriously

White-collar crimes have serious potential and social consequences. An experienced lawyer can protect and defend your rights.

Don't hesitate to contact usor call toll-free at 866-678-4541 to get the criminal defense you need.

 

Internet Crimes

Defending You Against Internet Crime Charges

As the Internet grows and changes rapidly, New Jersey criminal law is adjusting to the unique issues that arise when crimes are allegedly committed online. If you are charged with an Internet crime, you need an attorney who has stayed informed about the latest developments in this evolving area.

Contact us to schedule a free initial consultation with Teaneck criminal defense lawyer Benjamin Kelsen, who will explain what you and he can do to protect your rights.

Helping You Face Any Internet Claim

Many criminal charges have been brought against people in New Jersey in response to alleged conduct on the Internet, including:

  • Fraud
  • Identity theft
  • Other theft
  • Soliciting sex from a minor
  • Other sex crimes

The seemingly anonymous atmosphere of the Internet can create situations where people get themselves into trouble by either actually committing a crime or engaging in behavior that makes it look like they have committed or will commit a crime.

Conviction on an Internet crime charge can lead to serious social and criminal consequences, so you should be prepared to mount a vigorous criminal defense.

Knowledgeable About Unique Online Issues

While Internet crimes are more of a general category than a unique set of criminal charges, there are several unique issues that arise on the Internet.

On the Internet, people have very little information to help them establish the identity of other people with whom they are interacting. Police and prosecutors will frequently take advantage of this fact by using undercover agents to get evidence of Internet crimes.

This can raise issues of illegal entrapment that we are prepared to fully explore if you are charged with an Internet crime. Also, if you are charged with a crime involving a minor, and the supposed minor was actually an adult police officer, the prosecution has to prove your intent of actually soliciting a minor.

The Advocate You Need Now

At the Law Offices of Benjamin G. Kelsen, Esq. LLC, we have experience dealing with the unique issues involved in Internet crime cases.

Contact us or call toll-free at 866-678-4541 to get attorney Benjamin Kelsen's knowledge and experience on your side.
