Criminal Defense & White-Collar Litigation

Results achieved in prior matters are not meant to be a guarantee of success as the facts and legal circumstances vary from matter to matter.

The Wilentz, Goldman & Spitzer, P.A.'s Criminal Defense & White-Collar Litigation practice is led by a certified criminal trial attorney and includes former prosecutors who have distinguished themselves in difficult and highly publicized cases. Members of our team have extensive experience in criminal, civil, administrative, and regulatory litigation arising out of law enforcement, criminal law, and civil rights issues.

Our criminal lawyers handle white-collar crime and investigations, criminal appeals in state and federal courts, federal criminal defense, serious criminal matters, municipal court cases, juvenile delinquency cases, expungement, and other specialized criminal litigation.

We have experience in federal, state, municipal, and administrative courts, at trial and appellate levels. Members of our team concentrate on specific criminal law areas, such as complex white-collar and regulatory matters, issues that implicate mental health concerns, driving while intoxicated cases, and routine municipal court matters.

We also handle matters in federal district courts outside of New Jersey, including the Southern District of New York, the Eastern District of New York, and the Middle and Western Districts of Pennsylvania.

When to Seek Legal Counsel

Early representation is critical in defending a matter in the criminal justice system. An indictment alone can be extremely destructive to an individual or to a company. Proactive pre-indictment action is often the most effective way to prevent the emotional and economic damages created by an indictment.

When you, your company, or your loved one needs legal representation, the Criminal Law team at Wilentz is prepared to protect your rights, advocate on your behalf, and defend you.
