If you are under investigation or have been charged with a drug crime, you want an experienced and aggressive lawyer to protect your rights. The wrong outcome can haunt you for the rest of your life, making it difficult to get a good job, an education or a place to live. You want an attorney who understands both the law and the process, who has successfully helped others in similar circumstances.

At Yonta Law, LLC, we offer more than 16 years of criminal law experience to every client. Before establishing our criminal defense practice, attorney Kimberly Yonta worked for more than 10 years as a prosecutor. She understands how the state’s attorneys gather evidence and prepare their cases, and can anticipate the strategies they will employ in pursuit of a conviction. She is certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as a criminal trial attorney. Attorney Yonta was named the Young Lawyer of the Year in Middlesex County in 2008. Because of our reputation for providing effective legal representation, many of our new cases come to us as referrals from former clients and from other attorneys.

We offer a free initial consultation to every new client. To schedule a confidential appointment, contact our office online or call our office at 732-421-1680.

Our Drug Crimes Defense Practice

We provide comprehensive defense counsel to anyone under investigation for or charged with a drug offense, including:

  • Possession of a controlled dangerous substance (CDS)
  • Possession with intent to distribute
  • Sale, distribution or trafficking of illegal or illicit drugs
  • Manufacturing of illegal substances, such as crystal meth
  • Cultivation of marijuana
  • Conspiracy to commit a drug offense

We handle cases involving any type of CDS, from marijuana, cocaine and heroin to methamphetamines and prescription drugs.

When you hire us to defend you, we’ll conduct a thorough investigation of the facts and circumstances of your case, looking at how police gathered evidence against you. We’ll verify that there was probable cause for any search, seizure or arrest, and that you were properly advised of your Constitutional rights when taken into custody. If proper procedures were not followed, we’ll seek to exclude evidence wrongfully obtained or have charges dismissed, if appropriate.

We’ll be at your side throughout the legal process, whether you have just learned of a police investigation or have already been detained. Attorney Yonta will be a strong advocate in all hearings and proceedings, and has the experience to handle any appeals, if necessary.
