Criminal Defense

Effective Criminal Defense Representation

A criminal conviction can result in steep fines, probation, community service and even time in jail or prison. Furthermore, a permanent mark on your criminal record could hold you back from future employment opportunities.

When the stakes are high, it is important to trust your case to an attorney who knows how to get results.

I am Steven A. Garner, Attorney At Law, a criminal defense lawyer in Franklin Township, serving clients in Middlesex, Somerset and Monmouth counties and throughout surrounding New Jersey communities. In more than a decade of practice, I have established a reputation for prevailing in difficult criminal cases. If your future is on the line, I am here to be the strong ally you need.

Full-Service Criminal Defense Law Firm

I defend clients against a broad range of criminal charges, including:

  • Drug crimes, including possession, distribution, trafficking, cultivation and manufacturing of all types of illegal drugs and unauthorized prescription drugs
  • Shoplifting, auto theft, cellphone theft, burglary and other theft offenses
  • All types of violent crimes, including assault offenses
  • Probation violations
  • Juvenile offenses

Whatever charge you face, I will fight for the best possible outcome. Sometimes I can get charges dismissed altogether. When that is not possible, I will work for the next best outcome, whether it is reduced charges, pretrial intervention or acquittal by trial.

If you already have a criminal record and would like to limit who can see it, I can help you with all aspects of the expungement process.
