Frequently Asked Questions About Criminal Defense In Morris Township, New Jersey

FAQ: I was charged with a crime but I am innocent. Can’t I just represent myself?

While you are legally entitled to represent yourself in a court of law, it is not a good choice to do so, particularly with regard to a criminal case. Criminal cases may involve penalties that include jail time and that is not something to take lightly. Experience, knowledge of the criminal laws that apply in your case, understanding of court proceedings, and the ability to develop a strategic defense are just some of the many reasons you should not represent yourself in a criminal matter.

FAQ: What is a “bench warrant”?

A bench warrant is a type of warrant that is issued by a judge when a defendant fails to appear in court when called upon to do so, or when the defendant violates the rules of court in another way. A bench warrant can be used by the police to retrieve the defendant and bring them back to court.
