Serving Atlantic City, 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 Investigations

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. In many times the first few days after the arrest makes-up a critical period. Criminal defense lawyers who slow down the process while simultaneously seek potentially essential evidence before it can be lost or destroyed often make the difference for their clients.

For instance, if you were accused of assault in a busy commercial district, we may take a number of steps to find out what really occurred that day. While we would certainly seek out witnesses, we may also talk to nearby store owners and landlords to determine if surveillance footage of the events was captured. However, since most surveillance systems have only limited storage capacity, a failure to take swift action may mean that the materials are irretrievably lost. Without this and other evidence, you may have significantly more difficulty rebutting charges against you or find yourself less able to negotiable a favorable plea deal.

That is why we are here to take prompt and strategic action on your behalf while compassionately guiding you through the confusion and stress. We understand that an arrest is a harrowing and difficult experience. While you may not want to think about or dwell on your arrest and charges, it can be essential that you hire a lawyer who will consider these potential means to reduce or eliminate the charges against you.

What Our Clients Say About Us

“About four months ago my son found himself in a very dangerous situation. We called your firm because we honestly did not know what to do. We were confused and scared. Thanks to your expertise you were able to guide us through what could have been the end of my son’s life if he was prosecuted. You didn’t make us feel judged or deviant. You were also very mindful of the family who was charging my son with crime. I want to thank you so much for impacting my son’s life in such a positive, meaningful way.
