Proactive Criminal Defense
If you or a loved one is contending with charges for suspicion of committing a crime, you are facing an uncertain future. Suddenly, you are dealing with the possibility of high fines, penalties, indeterminate limits on your freedom and a criminal record. Speaking to a criminal trial attorney can alleviate this stressful burden.
At Robert A. Scirocco and Associates Counselors at Law, our attorneys are approachable, knowledgeable and proactive. We are criminal trial attorneys who regularly deal with such issues as probable cause, the validity of searches incident to an arrest, and whether the defendant is eligible for pretrial intervention.
Within the past few years, Robert A. Scirocco and Associates Counselors at Law has effectively represented a number of high-profile defendants who have been subject to media attention. These include defendants in the Morris County, Sussex County and Warren County court systems who have been charged with:
- Aggravated assault

Call our office to schedule a consultation to learn more about how we can help you with these and other charges including those involving juvenile law matters. We will also help you explore whether your criminal background qualifies for expungement.
The Justice System Is Subject To Ever-Changing Legislation And Case Law
Criminal law in this area is subject to exacting scrutiny by the courts, and the case law is in continuous development. For example:
- The New Jersey Supreme Court recently held that an “off-the-record” conversation between the police officer and a defendant could not later be used against the defendant – even when Miranda or “due-process” warnings are also given.
- The U.S. Supreme Court recently ruled in a 5-4 decision that it was acceptable for the police to take DNA samples from an individual even without a conviction.
- The New Jersey Appellate Division recently reviewed some important issues in the transportation of guns in State of N.J. v. Reininger.
