Dedicated New Jersey Lawyers Deliver Formidable Criminal Defense

Firm protects clients’ rights

No matter what crime you’re charged with, you have certain fundamental rights in the criminal justice system.  But without proper legal representation, those rights might be violated or surrendered before you have a full understanding of the case against you. Malamut & Associates LLC stands up for accused individuals in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Regardless of the specific charge, we provide honest, comprehensive advocacy to help clients obtain a fair result, whether that’s a dismissal, an acquittal or a reduced charge.

Proven felony defense attorneys serve Camden and Middlesex counties

Known as “indictable crimes” under New Jersey law, felonies carry a criminal sentence of at least one year in prison in addition to other consequences that can follow you for the rest of your life. We understand the seriousness of these cases and work tirelessly to counter allegations relating to crimes such as:

  • Robbery and burglary — If you’ve been accused of theft involving the use or threat of force or breaking into a structure in order to commit a crime, we’ll identify pertinent defenses and confront the charges against you.
  • Sexual offenses — In cases where sexual assault or another type of sexual misconduct is alleged, our seasoned lawyers thoroughly review the circumstances to find the truth when accounts differ, and present key evidence to the court.
  • Assault and battery — A small altercation can erupt into a harsh aggravated assault charge if a serious bodily injury occurs. Our firm effectively argues on behalf of clients who were wrongly accused or who acted in self-defense.
  • Arson — Determining intent during an arson investigation can be very difficult. In situations where someone has been accused of purposely setting fire, we battle to disprove unwarranted allegations.

Police officers and prosecutors start building a case against you from the moment you are detained. To give yourself the best chance for a just result, you need to take prompt action as well. Our firm offers a free initial consultation so we can get to work on your defense immediately.

Established legal counselors handle all types of drug crime charges

Changes in many states have led to some confusion about laws pertaining to drug possession and sale. What hasn’t changed is that harsh sentences still exist for many crimes involving controlled substances. If you’ve been accused of a drug crime, our firm will challenge questionable evidence and press for appropriate treatment at every phase of your case. When appropriate, we work to have cases shifted to drug court where resolutions focus on recovery, such as substance abuse treatment, rather than incarceration.

Skillful advocates assist motorists accused of driving while intoxicated

Out of nowhere, a driving while intoxicated charge can disrupt your life and lead to a heavy fine, license suspension and possibly incarceration. If you’ve been stopped and arrested because your breathalyzer result exceeds the legal blood alcohol limit of .08 percent, you might not think that you have any legal options. However, several defenses might be available, so it’s best to seek assistance from a qualified DWI lawyer. We’ll examine the circumstances that led to your charge to determine if the case against you was prejudiced by errors or improper police conduct.

Knowledgeable advisers defend against white collar crime allegations

When someone’s been accused of a white collar crime, special challenges exist. Though New Jersey law doesn’t include a separate charge for embezzlement, these cases usually require a different type of investigation than a typical theft matter. Our firm understands how to fight these allegations and has the resources to provide comprehensive support in cases pertaining to fraud and theft by unlawful taking.
