Effective New Jersey Criminal Defense Attorney

Indictable Offenses | Serious Crimes | Homicide | Violent Crimes | Drug Offenses | Theft Crimes

When you have been arrested and charged with a serious crime in New Jersey, you want a lawyer who fully understands criminal law and procedure, who has a proven record of successfully protecting the rights of criminal defendants. The stakes can be high—lengthy prison terms, substantial fines and a permanent criminal record. You want someone who knows how prosecutors think, who has demonstrated knowledge, skill and effectiveness in representing others in similar circumstances.

Attorney Kimberly Yonta, of Yonta Law, LLC, has focused her entire legal career on criminal matters. Before dedicating her private practice solely to the needs of criminal defendants, she served as a New Jersey prosecuting attorney for more than a decade. She knows how prosecutors think and how they prepare their cases. She can anticipate their moves and take proactive steps to minimize the consequences of an arrest or prosecution. Because of her reputation for effective counsel, many of her new cases come to her as referrals from other lawyers.

Our Indictable Offenses Practice

We handle the defense of most types of indictable offenses, including:

  • Murder, manslaughter and other homicide crimes
  • Violent crimes, such as assault, robbery and weapons offenses
  • Serious theft crimes, including embezzlement, receipt of stolen goods and white collar crimes
  • Burglary, arson, kidnapping, stalking

We’ll carefully examine all the evidence in your case, and will look at how police gathered that evidence, so that we can determine whether your Constitutional rights were violated. We’ll ensure that there was probable cause for any search, seizure or arrest, and that you were properly advised of your Miranda rights when taken into custody. If any evidence was improperly obtained, we’ll seek to have it excluded at trial, and will move for dismissal of charges against you, if appropriate.

We work with clients at any stage of a criminal matter, from the initial arrest to trial. We also have extensive appellate experience, and can represent you in any appeals, if necessary.
