Ridgewood Attorney Defending Against Drug Crimes

Drug crimes are prosecuted harshly in New Jersey. Whether you have been charged with possession of marijuana or a federal drug conspiracy, a conviction could have a significant impact on your freedom and your future. You do not want to fight these charges without an experienced Paterson drug crime defense lawyer by your side.

I am Susan C. Cassell, Esq., and I have been practicing law for more than 20 years. From my Ridgewood law office, I provide aggressive representation to people throughout northern New Jersey who have been charged with drug crimes in the municipal, state and federal courts. As a former federal and municipal prosecutor, I have a unique perspective on how the prosecution handles drug cases. I will put this knowledge and experience to work for you. To schedule a free consultation, call 201-972-6653 or contact me online.

Representation In All Cases Involving Illegal Drug Allegations

I handle a wide range of drug charges involving cocaine, marijuana, oxycodone, crack, heroin and prescription drugs, including:

  • Possession
  • Possession with intent to distribute
  • Importation
  • Manufacturing
  • Drug trafficking
  • Prescription drug fraud
  • Drug conspiracy, including international drug conspiracy

I believe communication with my clients is of utmost importance. By hiring me as your defense attorney, you can be assured of being kept in the loop. I truly understand your need to have someone who cares about you and your situation.

Fighting The Serious Consequences Of A Drug Charge Conviction

Over the last two decades, the consequences of a drug conviction have gotten more serious. Not only could you be facing jail time and substantial fines, a drug conviction could make you ineligible for financial aid and certain jobs. You may even be barred from renting an apartment or taking out a loan. If you were charged with a weapons offense in conjunction with a drug charge, the penalties get even steeper. That is why it is so important to work with a skilled lawyer.

I look at every angle of your case for opportunities to challenge the prosecution and minimize your consequences. If the police violated search and seizure laws, or infringed on other rights, you can be sure I will fight to have evidence dismissed or the charges dropped. I am committed to obtaining the best possible outcome on your behalf.
