Serving Cape May County, Atlantic County & Beyond
Welcome to the Law Offices of John J. Zarych. We practice criminal defense in state and federal courts throughout New Jersey in places such as Mays Landing in Atlantic County, Cape May Courthouse in Cape May County, Atlantic City, Egg Harbor Township, Galloway Township, Hamilton Township, Pleasantville, Margate, Vineland, Camden, Mount Holly, Bridgeton, Toms River, Wildwood, Absecon, Longport, Ocean City and Somers Point. Perhaps you have come to this site because you or a loved one has been arrested or is under investigation by the state or federal government. Fear and confusion are appropriate emotional responses to such a situation. However, please know that we are ready to stand with you.
Today may be one of the worst days of your life, but our combined experience of over 45 years of lawyering has prepared our attorneys to manage your legal crisis. Our team is trained and poised to meet that crisis head-on and to take immediate action. It is our privilege to guide you through this process, to defend your freedoms and to protect your liberty. Clients often say to us things such as, “This is all new to me. My family has never been through this process before. I don’t know how serious this is and I have so many questions.” This is a common response when one learns he or she is facing charges. Rest assured that nothing about the criminal justice process is “new” to us. In fact, guiding people through the legal system is what we do every day. There are no stupid questions. You may ask as many questions as you like.
The role of an attorney is to give you the information that you need to make important decisions about your case. Your attorney will recommend a course of action, but ultimately you have the right to make the most crucial decisions in your case such as whether to demand a trial. But when we are talking about your case, aren't we really talking about your life? Yes, and you want your legal matter to be handled in such a way that it has a minimal negative impact on your life. We understand that questions about your life are important and deserve time and attention. You will receive that from our firm.
Prompt & Strategic Action With Criminal Charges or Criminal Investigation
A criminal charge presents an immediate and very serious problem that requires prompt attention. In addition, criminal cases are often won or lost based on what an attorney does in the first few days. That is why we are here to take prompt and strategic action on your behalf while compassionately guiding you through the confusion and stress.
Our Defense Attorneys Handle All Criminal Charges Throughout New Jersey
We will not settle for simply good client service; we aim to provide outstanding service. We always have staff available on call, including weekends and holidays.
Experience With a Variety of Criminal Defense Cases
We are prepared to go to trial in every case. Every client should know that the decision to go to trial in any criminal case is always his or her own decision to make. An attorney will provide you advice as to the wisest course of action when it comes to deciding between going to trial and accepting a plea bargain, but you will always have the power to make that choice. Although not every client chooses to go to trial, our experience shows that our willingness to try cases and fight for "not guilty" verdicts is extremely beneficial in achieving positive results for our clients. The attorneys of the Law Offices of John J. Zarych do not pressure or trick clients into accepting guilty pleas when they do not wish to do so.
All of our attorneys are active in the South Jersey communities we serve. We have made numerous television and radio appearances on criminal defense topics, and we are actively involved in local and national bar association activities, rehabilitation organizations and local school and community service endeavors.
