Criminal Defense

Aggressive, Strategic Representation Throughout New Jersey

Following an arrest or notification that you are under investigation for possible criminal charges, the single most important thing to remember is that you have a right to remain silent and a right to an attorney. The second most important thing is to select the right lawyer to represent you.

Even though many cases never go to trial, it is important that your defense lawyer have significant trial experience. I have 30 years of trial experience, and know how to resolve cases effectively in or out of the courtroom.

As a member of the National Board of Trial Advocacy and an attorney named to the list of New Jersey Super Lawyers since 2005, Mr. Curran is committed to upholding the highest standards of criminal defense practice. Call his Milltown office at 732-374-3738 for a free consultation to discuss your case.

Your Voice In The Criminal Justice System

I represent people charged with various misdemeanor and felony offenses in New Jersey, and have represented clients in federal court, superior court and municipal courts throughout the state. I can represent you or a loved one charged with:

  • Driving under the influence (DUI)
  • Drug possession or distribution charges
  • Violent crimes such as assault and battery
  • Property crimes, including theft, burglary and robbery
  • White collar crimes
  • Federal bribery cases

Your lawyer should be able to approach your case from a big-picture perspective. That means understanding not only the direct penalties — jail time and/or fines — you face, but also what this can mean to your and your family's life down the road. For many people, a criminal conviction can spell the end of careers and other endeavors, which is why I will advocate aggressively to get charges dropped or reduced, and fight for an acquittal when a case must go to trial.

I will thoroughly analyze the facts of the case and the applicable charges, and will work with the prosecutor to obtain dismissal or the best plea bargain.
