Wall NJ Marijuana Lawyer

Marijuana Lawyer in Wall Twp NJCharged with the possession of marijuana in Wall Township? If so, it is important that you speak to an experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. Even though marijuana is considered legal is some states and it has been decriminalized in others, New Jersey still takes these charges very seriously. Regardless of whether you were arrested by the Wall Township police department or the New Jersey State Police, anyone charged with the possession of marijuana under 50 grams will be forced to appear in the Wall Municipal Court to answer for those charges. Although Wall Township is one of the largest municipalities in all of Monmouth County, it is its location within the county that makes it one of the busiest municipal courts in the area. Anyone visiting towns like Belmar, Lake Como, Manasquan, Brielle, Sea Girt, Spring Lake, Neptune Township, Neptune City, Bradley Beach and Avon, you will most likely have to travel through Wall Township.

Marijuana Lawyers that Serve Wall Township

In New Jersey, marijuana possession cases have been broken into two different subsections; the possession of marijuana under 50 grams and the possession of marijuana over 50 grams. All marijuana possession under 50 gram charges, which are governed by NJSA 2C:35-10a(4), are considered disorderly persons offenses and as such will be litigated in the Wall Municipal Court, which is located 2700 Allaire Road. All possession of marijuana over 50 gram charges, which are governed by NJSA 2C:35-10a(3), are considered a fourth degree felony. As such, the charges will be transferred to the Monmouth County Superior Court, which is located in Freehold. Regardless of the specific charge, the Law Offices of Proetta & Oliver can help. We defend clients accused of possessing marijuana in both the Middletown Municipal Court and the Monmouth County Superior Court, so if you have any questions whatsoever, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Marijuana possession charges are anything but straightforward in New Jersey and like most other drug related cases, they tend to be heavily litigated. By far one of the most common fact scenarios that we see when it comes to marijuana cases in Wall Township, is the motor vehicle stop wherein which there are multiple Defendant’s located inside the vehicle and the marijuana is found in a common area. When this occurs, there is a tremendous amount of legal defenses that can be exploited by an experienced criminal defense lawyer. For example, they can seek to attack the basis for the motor vehicle stop, the seizure of the Defendant(s), the basis for the search, challenge the legality of any statements made and the constructive possession theory.  If you would like to speak to one of our criminal defense attorneys about your options, then please contact us at 732.858.6959. Our attorneys are available immediately for a free consultation.
