Our law firm represents people charged with violations of the criminal code: from traffic tickets to homicides. Because our principal criminal defense lawyer has more than twenty-five years of experience, our law firm understands how to design good defenses to produce good outcomes for clients whenever possible. We take the time to determine exactly what the client wants—whether total dismissal of the charges, or reduced jail time—and work with him or her to identify the options available to achieve the goals. We do the necessary work of conducting discovery, interviewing witnesses, and presenting all possible evidence to strengthen your case. To speak with an experienced criminal law attorney, contact our Newark law firm, Bailey & Orozco, LLC, to schedule a free, initial consultation.
Attorney Howard W. Bailey has seen the judicial process from several angles—as an attorney in the Essex County prosecutor’s office, as a police officer, and as a criminal defense lawyer. This allows him to anticipate the prosecutor’s response to proposals and negotiating positions. As our law firm’s principal defense lawyer, he has handled maters as diverse as international wiretaps, drug trafficking, and shoplifting. This experience, combined with his many years on both sides of the criminal justice system, gives our clients an advantage.
Negotiating with the prosecutor from a position of strength.
We believe that negotiations with the prosecutor’s office should be conducted from a position of strength. We will make sure that their case is solid by doing our own investigation. If it is not as solid as they suggest, we will not hesitate to ask them to revise their plea offer. Because of our years of experience, we know how parameters for plea bargaining are established, and use that knowledge to make the best possible deal for our clients, whether the charge is a DUI or a felony assault.
Our clients include adults, juveniles, individuals who are familiar with the criminal justice system, and people who have never been arrested before. Each client receives the personal attention of one of the most experienced criminal defense lawyers in Essex County. If you have been charged with any violation of the criminal code, let us put our experience to work for you. Contact a criminal law attorney at Bailey & Orozco, LLC. From our Newark office, we serve Elizabeth, Paterson, Hackensack, Morristown, Newark, Newton, and Belvidere.
