The Lawyer You Want On Your Side When Facing Criminal Charges

No matter how big or small it may seem, any criminal charge needs to be taken seriously. In addition to the fines, potential jail time and other criminal consequences, a criminal conviction on your record can impact your life for years to come. I am Ernie Aponte, founder of Aponte Law Services. As an attorney with nearly 20 years of experience in criminal defense and other areas of New Jersey law, I am ready to defend your rights and freedoms against nearly any charge in municipal court, including but not limited to those listed below.

Drug crimes: From marijuana possession and distribution crimes to federal drug trafficking and manufacturing, I have successfully handled thousands of drug cases and fully understand all the intricacies of some of the more complicated drug laws.

Theft and property crimes: From charges of shoplifting to federal fraud and white collar crime, I will do everything possible to aggressively defend your case, whether it involves negotiating with the prosecutor or seeking a dismissal at trial.

DUI: As your lawyer, I have tried hundreds of DUI-related cases. With my experience, I ensure that your rights are protected and that you get the best outcome possible. I examine the police investigation in an effort to have your case dismissed or obtain a not-guilty verdict after a trial. You can count on me to thoroughly investigate your case and defend your rights.

Violent crimes: If you have been charged with homicide, assault or a weapons offense, I will aggressively defend your case whether we are negotiating with the prosecutor or seeking a dismissal at trial.

Sex crimes: Whether you have been charged with a misdemeanor sexual contact or first-degree aggravated sexual assault, a conviction for a sex offense carries a lifetime stigma and possible registration on the state’s sex offender registry under the terms of Megan’s Law. As an experienced lawyer, I know exactly how to defend any sexual assault case.
